What others have said about Hon. Patrick E. Tondreau


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA15169
He has ethic problems, always flatter to the side with attorneys, blaming, yelled at the emergency screener when they made good, fair decisions but not in his will. He also interfered with assessor's decision. Something wrong. not ethical enough to be a Judge, not even a citizen.


Comment #: CA12096
He did not let the defendent to say anything, only listened to one side. 100% submissive to one side blindly, not even to check if there is any lie. It's not a good Judge should do. I suspect he had bribery to have extra money, and that's why he still likes to presides in family court to keep sucking money from hooked attorneys predicate the innocent, righteous money. He is a rat Poo making the whole pot of good soup bad.


Comment #: CA12091
I was so surprised Judge Tondreau is still presiding Family Court, possibly, because he can take more bribery, extra earning for his retirement.

He had made many wrong result in Family Court before Dec. 2016. There were many complains here and there in his presiding Family Court Department 73.

Now, just found out that he is presiding Family Court 69 again! Things went wrong in Justice system. We need to recall him.
