What others have said about Hon. Abraham Khan


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11157
We had the misfortune of being assigned Judge Khan for our mediation. He spent twenty minutes discussing why it would be better to settle than to litigate, then retreated to his chambers. For FOUR hours. He would not offer any advice, suggestions or knowledge. He let the attorneys hash it out then came out rebuking us for not "utilizing" him.

I have had the good fortune to be practicing for several decades and have negotiated with hundreds of judges throughout California. In a matter which was settled by Judge Khan I found him to be without compare as a settlement judge. He was frankly excellent in every way.

His temperament was patient, thoughtful and from time to time he told us pertinent humorous stories that helped us move forward. He also had clearly studied the settlement briefs and thought them through to their potential conclusions, his trial experience was a great benefit.

In my settlement experience, the toughest skill to possess for a judge is the ability to be candid, tough and direct with counsel, particularly if they are mistaken, and do so without offense. Not many humans are so capable. For Judge Khan it was his greatest skill and one I had never seen so developed.

An exceptional judge and an exceptional man.

I look forward to seeing him again on my next matter.

I agree with the first criminal defense attorney comment, but in the civil area. He is fair, but he can also rule definitively. Judge Khan has a good temperament, but he does not suffer fools gladly. He runs a good courtroom.

This judge is horribly lazy. He pressures settlement to a fault. He is also reluctant to issue a ruling.

This Judge is not fair If you are hispanic he violates your civil rights he will rule and preceed the case without your attorney been present he will also impose execive bail even if you have no prior record,he allows the DA to file charges without any evidence and without due process. I can prove all this I have documentation .Even if you are a USA citizen as long as the sherrif's department writes foreigner he will add terorist threat so that the public in the court can over see the violation that he commits against the constitution of the USA.No Judge that violates the laws of the USA should be in office,this kind of judge is as much of a criminal as the people that are convicted of a crime.A Judge should know that violation the laws of the usa is a crime at any level.

I like this judge! If you're one of those lunkhead attorneys who delight in making opposing counsel's life difficult, this judge is on to you - and about time we have judges who demonstrate willingness to corral bad behavior.

He is kind and even-tempered, and always well-prepared (at least in my matters).
