What others have said about Hon. Carrie A. Zepeda



Comment #: CA2824
This person does not deserve to be referred to as “Honorable” – she is not. She is biased, vicious and vindictive. She does not know the law and doesn't care about justice. Dishonest attorneys can easily mislead her because of her lack of understanding of the law and civil procedure. She believes that if an attorney says something it is the truth. When she is shown that a witness (an attorney) on the stand has lied she does not consider that to be perjury. She has no moral or ethical compass and will prejudge everything without allowing any evidence that could conflict with her preconceptions. Avoid at all costs.
