She lacks professionalism, courtesy, impartiality, and competence. She shows favoritism to certain lawyers she knows. Her cases should be reviewed for possible misconduct. She engages in discriminatory practices that have lasting negative impacts on the lives of children.

If you’re a victim of domestic violence, harassment, repeated bullying, this judge will make sure you continue to be just that. Instead of allowing victims to speak up, express why they need a restraining order, she makes sure to quiet them, tell them their “cries for help” are “not believable” and allows her judgment to be clouded by how close it is to lunch time, and God forbid you’re the last case before then because you’re pretty much rushed out. A thorough training on domestic violence and how it affects trauma victims even after they leave the relationship needs to be required of this woman and all other judges. It’s a sad day when it is a woman of color putting down another one. It’s 2024, how are we still victim blaming?? Disappointment, anger, and total disgust doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about this legal system and the kind of people it keeps in these positions of power.

First and foremost, I have found Judge Michelle L Kazadi to be consistently judgmental and disrespectful towards individuals appearing before her. Her demeanor and attitude create an atmosphere of hostility and unease, which undermines the fairness and impartiality that should be expected from a judge.
Furthermore, it is disheartening to witness Judge Michelle L Kazadi exhibits a significant bias against domestic violence victims. and her disregard for evidence presented in cases involving domestic violence. This not only perpetuates a harmful narrative but also fails to provide justice to those who have suffered from such acts of violence. It is crucial that a judge remains unbiased and considers all evidence and she doesn’t uphold the law She holds strong prejudice against domestic violence victims. She is a very unfair judge. She demonstrates indifference towards the wellbeing of the children and the determination of primary custody.

Firstly, I would like to bring to your attention the behavior exhibited by Michelle L Kazadi.
Throughout the duration of the proceedings, l have observed a consistent bias, rudeness, and prejudice displayed by her. It is disheartening to witness a lack of empathy and concern when it comes to the evidence presented by a domestic violence victim.
I firmly believe that Michelle L Kazadi does not prioritize the well-being and justice for victims of domestic violence. Instead, it appears that she favors the opposite party without any substantial evidence. This raises serious questions about her impartiality and adherence to the principles of justice.

Unprofessional, rude, biased, incompetent. Favors certain attorneys she knows. Her cases should all be investigated. Discriminatory practices that has detrimental life time effects on the lives of children. She should be investigated by the CJP, and even criminally since some of the things she has done are illegal.

Very bad. Very incompetent. Does not understand Rules of Evidence. Does not understand best interests. All the judicial temperament of a falling crowbar. A horrible example of an individual who should never have responsibility for other's lives. Paper this monster immediately. The Judicial Council should be ashamed to have Judicial Officers like this on the roster.

A judge who appears to disregard legal principles and instead makes rulings based on personal sentiments, and who seemingly lacks a comprehensive understanding of a child's best interests, raises concerns. Furthermore, if there's suspicion of the judge having personal connections with certain attorneys and showing bias in their decisions, it might warrant an investigation by an appropriate oversight body, such as the FBI, to ensure judicial integrity and fairness. It's important to remain vigilant in such situations.

Wow. Where do I even begin with this judge? She is so inexperienced, so lazy, so biased, so rude. She will have zero sympathy for whatever case you have. Optics are everything for this woman. She will allow almost anything that shouldn't be allowed in court- such as bickering, giggles, rudeness, snarky comments by opposing counsels, etc. But when you ask for recess or rescheduling or anything common/normal, she would roll her eyes and get nasty with you. She will never remember what she said before so make sure you get your transcripts. She is extremely rude and ignorant. She does not care for the written motions as much as she cares about the evidence/arguments in court. This judge needs to be GONE. Please. (Restraining order matter).

Worst Family Law Judge ever. Run away from hour courtroom. Lazy. Does not read any papers. If your case involves complex issues, discovery, or needs brains...run! She is biased. Her feelings dictate the outcome, not facts or law. Her rulings are not in the best interest of the children. They wreak havoc in people's lives and children's lives.
