What others have said about Hon. Amarra A Lee


Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA34592
Amara Lee is the biggest phony in San Mateo County. She lives in Alameda County and doesn't even show up for work. Find ONE significant case Ms. Lee has done and I'll apologize. When you lie about your background, there is no defense. Lazy, self-absorbed, seeking awards and cash and prizes for nothing at all.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA33486
Judge Amara Lee thoroughly prepares - typically reading all pleadings one week before the hearing. She is familiar with the case, really means it when she tells counsel "I've read everything that has been timely filed." She is patient but firm, fair yet just, tough while kind. She pays attention to the details which is refreshing. San Mateo County is very lucky to have Judge Amara Lee. We all know there are plenty of while-male (and female) judges from San Mateo County District Attorney's office. It is nice to have a woman from another county to bring a fresh perspective and even hand to this county's bench.
