What others have said about Hon. Emma Castro



Comment #: CA40692
Judge Emma Castro is an example of everything a judge should be. If you are fortunate to get her name on your case, you will have a judge who will ask questions, listen, look at and review the evidence, and get to the bottom of the case. She is not biased or prejudiced and will not look the other way when a case involves an attorney or law firm, as other judges do. She will dispense justice, not vengeance or personal politics. "No One is Above the Law" in her courtroom. She is in the 10 percent of ethical judges. She has earned my family's admiration and respect.

If you told me the court went down to Home Depot and found Emma Castro in the parking lot looking for work, I’d find it believable. She doesn’t listen to evidence and makes a ruling based on who she likes better. To save you some time, I’ve gathered the following information. She likes women more than men, likes the educated more than the uneducated, she hates those who are shy and/or not assertive, and likes Mexicans more than everybody else. She’s not qualified to be a judge and seems to wake up on the wrong side of the bed each day. Oh and her haircut sucks. It looks like her barber was a blind person with no hands and only one working foot.
