What others have said about Hon. Wendy Getty


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA31292
Judge Getty is excellent. I don't know why the other comments were written but I've been in front of her multiple times and she has been evenhanded, fair, polite, efficient, and smart.

I've watched her handle matters with pro se litigants as well as anyone I've ever seen in 25 years of practice.

She is absolutely professional. Wonderful judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA27032
Her style and professional demeanor is horrible, and she has no cue to court procedures; she is very rude and obnoxious and extremely hyper. She needs a medical exam.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA20218
Feels free to ridicule members of the public and counsel alike. Very disorderly at case management hearings with no regard as to schedules.

Mean spirited and biased for prosecution. Loves to pretend how smart and pleasant she is. Neither one applies.

Judge Getty has an unusual court-room demeanor. She is very pleasant, but overly chatt - almost too friendly for a judge. In family court - she was in over her head - she was county counsel previously. In criminal court is was difficult to read her. Good person, treats people well, but unpredictable
