Comment #: CA31224
Terrible judge! Sends a 7 year old child back into a household with alcoholic parents an abusive step parent with 5 aggravated assault convictions because she doesn’t deem it “an emergency “ what then is an emergency? Doesn’t even review pertinent current depositions. Yes I’m a disgusted grandparent praying nothing bad happens!


Comment #: CA24783
Graceful leadership style. Comports Her Honor’s power with compassion, clear communication, and thoughtful attentiveness. Seems extremely diligent, respectful of defendants’ Rights, and lends a firm benchmark for “civil” civilities.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA6578
Mayfield is a very intelligent, efficient, and overall, fair bench officer. (Juvenile dependency matter: parent's attorney)

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4150
She figures out what she wants to see happen and then carefully writes a detailed opinion to support her views. She appears to listen but seems to have made up her mind already.
