Comment #: CA11790
Judge Waters is one of the hardest working, industrious judges before whom I have tried a case in my 35-plus years of practice. She has a favorable judicial temperament and takes the time to study and analyze complex legal issues before making well reasoned rulings.

Judge Waters is a very fair, impartial and knowledgeable judge. I tried a lengthy case in front of her, and found her to be one of the hardest working, industrious judges I have ever appeared before. Like to other commentators, I found her to have excellent judicial temperament.
