Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA4512
Generally fair, but a bit conservative and a stickler for details.

To answer comment #CA3654: most judges are politically appointed. They are told how to rule from higher up. There is no justice in these courthouses. You may be a very bright lawyer, but it's not what you know, it's who you know.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA3654
Rating:Not Rated
Judge Strobel is biased toward financial institutions. She will rule in their favor, even if it has been proven beyond all doubt that the financial institution is liable. She may fear she will not be re-elected if she rules against the "amicus curiae" but she is not being a judge - just a puppet. She ruins lives because she is afraid of losing her job and retirement.
She is married to a lawyer and she is too political to be a judge.
