What others have said about Hon. Ginger E. Garrett


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA6516
This judge told the privately hired criminal defense attorney and the prosecutor in her chambers that she knew the defendant was guilty and that her jury would know she was guilty. When the case was transferred to a different courtroom on the day of trial because of another trial being scheduled for the same day, this judge saw to it through the pull of professional courtesy that her colleague would also see to it that her jurors knew the defendant was guilty. funny thing was, the defendant was not guilty. Always think critically about what you "know" when it concerns your judgment of others, especially when you have the power to change a life in drastic measure for better or worse.


Comment #: CA4090
This judge seems to have a rare combination of humanity and empathy. Don't get me wrong, she is no pushover, but she gives a bad choice appropriate brevity. If you happen to be in front of her for the 99th time...long gaze into your eyes, deep sigh and an almost imperceptible shake of her head. As if to say: "You know & I know that it's time for either a break from your crazy, or your death will surely come soon." Then she will cheerfully sentence you to prison. Calling out "See you next time!" as you shuffle back to holding.
