Rules in the child's best interest

He is an advocate for the child

This judge is satan in human flesh. He does not follow any of the laws that our forefathers put in place for the courtroom to follow. He makes up his own laws that suit whoever paid him off. He is easily bought. He's rude, disrespectful and biased. The only way Mark Juhas became a judge is through corruption.

Judge Juhas is more concerned about his future as a "Rent-a-judge than the law. He has so often
Ruled in favor of the attorneys that can hire him in the future, it has become an abuse of the justice system.

Judge Juhas is partial and biased. He completely lacks impartiality and any sence of equity. Justice is certainly not blind in his court room. His inconsistent and illogical rulings cause great expense and delay. Judge Juhas has no business interpreting the law, as he seems to ignore it at his leisure. All Judge Juhas decisions should be overturned!

I've had so many victims of domestic violence call needing help from being beat up and bullied by this judge. When the victim has no lawyer they are doomed in this judge's courtroom. He has had on more than one occasion made inexplicable rulings that fly in the face of all facts before him.


Comment #: CA3318
The judge hardly ever seemed to read any of the documents before him in my divorce trial. He instead would get angry about the time it was taking...however the case was continually continued because if his schedule. Additionally, the other side was playing a lot of games, which would have been easy to see if he would read any paperwork, but he didn't, instead chastising both sides. Additionally, his final judgment was extremely difficult to interpret and he didn't even both to give dollar amounts, further prolonging the process a my ex is now arguing about how Hoa judge can be interpreted. It was also extremely rare that he followed any judicial procedures, including allowing my ex to flagrantly disregard the ATROs.


Comment #: CA1559
I can’t say enough about some judges in the Los Angeles court system. Zakon, Shaller, Friedenthal, Steinberg, Loomis, Stevens and others. I asked your friend Juhas many times to recuse himself from my case and he refused. The friction started when I discovered, by an accidental admission by my ex, that my 14-year old daughter has not had a facial reconstruction surgery which is 3 years late. Zeidler from the dependency court in Monterey Park, had rubber stamped DCFS’s desires by giving full legal and physical custody to my ex. I requested from Juhas to allow me to take part in the medical decision making of my daughter, since I am the one required to provide her medical insurance, I am responsible for half of her unpaid medical bills and that my ex, had not been responsible and diligent enough to take up the care. I cited extraordinary circumstances, which I believed were justifiable for him to act on my request. He denied my motion. Since I am disabled and I had been receiving disability payments of $ 2,000, of which, $1,500. Were taken away for alimony and child support, I brought several OSCs hoping to modify the support. After approximately a year and a half, the matter bounced between Commonwealth and Hill street courts until Juhas heard it. Knowing that I had a two year-old child from my new marriage and knowing that my knew wife is an undocumented alien, unable to work, Juhas disregarded my argument to terminate spousal support in its 6th year, from an 8 and ½ year marriage. He denied the motion under the pretext that as long as my, college educated, physically and mental capable ex, is carrying for our 14-year old child, it would be a hardship for him to terminate the spousal support of $570.00, which is into it s 7th year. He refused to consider evidence showing my new family living in a leaking trailer, surviving on $800 per month. The matter has been appealed, I had filled a writ to have him removed from my case, I had written a compliant to judge Steinberg to no avail and I am still waiting for a decision from the Commission on Judicial Performance, the decision on the writ and the process of the appeal is on-going. I forgot to mention that he had denied to motions 170.1 through 170.6 and I had filled a new OSC to modify, which is scheduled to be heard on September 6th, 2011. You can follow the case on Dmini vs. Dmini, PD038219.

I've been practicing family law in L.A. County for over 20 years. Family law judges come and go (mostly go because it is the toughest assignment in the entire system). We've had some great judges and not-so-great judges. Judge Juhas is one of the all time greats. Fair, ethical, hard-working, and very smart. When I'm lucky enough to draw him I know the outcome will be the best decision for the litigants.
