What others have said about Hon. Georgina T. Rizk


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA19655
No understanding of the Civil Code. Improperly issued issue sanctions and terminating sanctions, demolishing the case. Completely defense oriented. Doesn't matter what you say, what evidence you have, what argument you make. She will just go with her unlawful tentative.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA15541
Horrendously anti-plaintiff.


Comment #: CA14043

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA13339
I clerked for Judge Rizk and have first hand knowledge with how deeply she cares for everyone who comes before her. She absolutely follows the law, but always looks for creative ways to promote justice when the law permits.

Comment #: CA4356
This judge gave me a really good trial. She can treat people who behave different, differently. She is very patient.

Court Staff

Comment #: CA1175
Judge Rizk is very thorough in all of her decisions, researches case sites and takes the time to read and study before making a ruling. She always allows all attorneys a full opportunity to be heard completely before they submit the motion, objection, opposition, etc., to the court. She is very fair, unbiased, fully capable of keeping order in her courtroom, and a pleasure to work with. She has an extraordinary ability to be completely patient and kind with jurors, even when they are being uncooperative and difficult to work with. She is one of the best judges I have had the opportunity to work with.
