What others have said about Hon. Laura F. Priver



Comment #: CA10819
The Hon. Priver doesn't want to work too hard in her courtroom. It's easy to see why she rates SO HIGHLY with private criminal defense attorneys...trailing a case for a few years while a defendant walks around freely on a few hundred thousand dollars of bail is a party compared to being a victim. Justice? Not in Dept 125!

Judge Priver is by far the best judge I have ever appeared before and I have appeared before many judges. I had the greatest honor and privilege to try a case in her court and was absolutely impressed with her calm temper, ability to handle crisis, knowledge of the law and overall fairness and compassionate demeanor. I admire her greatly for the rare qualities she possesses as a judge and person. She would be the best role model for all judges and attorneys as well. I have learned a lot from her. We are very fortunate to have a judge like that.

Judge Priver is an excellent bench officer. She displays understanding, empathy, and compassion at every stage. She is a great listener as well, and I actually enjoy going to court, knowing that she is presiding that day over the case I am litigating. She is one of the best in the state!
