What others have said about Hon. Frank J. Johnson



Comment #: CA20069
Rating:Not Rated
In my opinion, sloppy, not bright and did not read pleadings. Tried to wing it, got it wrong at the expense of a party that was spending their life savings to correct a wrong done to them. Instead, that party spent more money fixing the sloppy mistake made by Frank Johnson. Essentially, he hurt a person and caused them to lose more of their life savings because he was unprepared. He should be supervised until he acts professionally or he should retire. Jude Frank Johnson: If you are jaded by your years as a judge, do the people a favor and get a new job.

Excellent trial judge. Judge Johnson is fair, decisive and intelligent. He maintains control over his courtroom, yet lets the attorneys try their case.

In this State of California, of all the Courts, from Superior to Supreme, this Judge is one of the highest caliber, IQ and concern for the residents of this State.

I had a 2 week bench trial before Judge Johnson and was very impressed at his immediate grasp of some complex issues and his control of the trial. He showed no bias during the trial, and was very respectful of all attorneys and parties, etc. His decision was thorough and very well reasoned.

Very conservative with a strong defense bias. Not a plaintiff friendly judge!

I am a court reporter and did a week long trial with Judge Johnson. He was wonderful to work for. Very patient, very well spoken. Great staff.
