Comment #: CA19349
Greatest Judge ever, granted me early termination probation. Prosecuter was not happy, saying all negative things. But at the end of the day she went over the people and granted me early termination. Thank you Judge Sanchez for giving me my life back

Fantastic criminal trial judge, particular from an evidentiary argument point of view. Haven't appeared before her civilly.

Comment #: CA5148
I don't know how she is in trial, but in law and motion she is clueless, or just doesn't read the papers. Others are correct, she doesn't award sanctions when they are clearly necessary. As a civil law judge she is terrible.

Civil litigation at its worst!

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA2343
Only appeared before her in law and motion and she is wishy-washy. She will not award sanctions, even in the most egregious of cases.

Rating:Not Rated
She refuses to order sanctions in civil cases under the most egregious circumstances. Doesn't seem to have a real good grasp of civil law and is indecisive. As a civil lawyer I would not want her to preside over my trial.

Comment #: CA2157
This judge ruled against me in a request to have an arrest removed from my CII file, by holding me "accountable" for filing my petition with a "two year deadline" that I COULD NOT HAVE EVEN KNOWN OF! And it was simply to get an FTA arrest removed! Not very understanding for a NON-criminal issue!


Comment #: CA250
Good judge, not always defense oriented, but fair. During trials, she lets the lawyers run their respective cases and doesn't interject into either side's case, which any seasoned trial attorney will appreciate.
