Comment #: CA49427
Rating:Not Rated
She is pure evil I can’t even begin on how she violated everything I had civil parenting human she needs to be punished publicly and not just a slap on the wrist I haven’t seen my autistic son in over 9 months because of her favoritism towards women.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA44624
[Redacted by Ed.] I am a civil attorney with nearly 20 years of experience. Judge Mayfield heard a civil case despite her having knowledge and interaction in the underlying facts. That is a conflict of interest against the judicial canons. Judge Mayfield did not recuse herself and did not address the potential conflict on the record. A judicial ethics complaint was filed against her. [Redacted] - steer clear.


Comment #: CA41939
Shame of Judicial system, total an evil with the power. ruling against law to favor the lawyer she likes. She took all the legal rights from the domestic violence victims, a homeless mother and child without mercy. She supervises other judges and court reporters to make sure they are doing good jobs on persecution judicial victims. The access to justice denied in front of her. She need to be exposed !!!


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.
