Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO270
The comment below by this complaining person hit it out of the ball park.

The Judge is probably o.k. with minor things like menacing; disturbance of peace type of deals.

However, the Judge is over her head on basic Civil Litigation issues.

[redacted] Clerk who believes that because the Judge is disrespectful to attorneys, that this uneducated Clerk can also be disrespectful to the attorneys.

There is a Website of Arapahoe County Judges, which does not to justice of Judge Chauche's actual being.


The comment on the Website about the Judge expecting attorney's to be prepared, would be fine, if the Judge had a much better grasp of the law.

The reference on the Arapahoe County Judges Website to the Judge being a "team player" does not fit a Judge. The Judge is paid by taxpayers and are at work when the Colorado State Government Court House is open.

It is not like most other occupations, especially when the Judge takes a case from another Judge, and quickly moves it off the docket without getting to the merits of the case.

If the Judge would come across like her picture smiling on the Website, it would help her out about 80%.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CO241
This Judge is exceptionally rude and unprofessional with young and new lawyers. Her own division clerks have bragged about the disparaging remarks that she makes concerning lawyers. Ironically, she is the one that makes comments and rulings which demonstrate that she has a poor understanding of the Rules of Evidence, Rules of Procedure and Rules of Professional Conduct. The Judge routinely fails to provide any factual support, legal reasoning or other rational to support her rulings on written motions. Worse yet, she fails to follow established legal authority and demonstrates frequent bias in civil cases. During trial, the Judge has engaged in behavior which is more appropriate for a party advocate. The Judge also elects to turn a blind eye to the frequent and repeated misconduct of her courtroom staff. This Judge is an absolute disgrace to the bench and the legal profession.
