What others have said about Hon. Norma Sierra


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CO332
A disgrace to the bench. Makes up her own rulings regardless of the law. "Her court, her rules." God help you if you have a civil matter before Judge Norma Sierra. Just flip a coin because no matter what the law says , she is the 'decider.'

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO269
She had no way to record the proceeding so said she'd do it herself. She also had talked to the other party's attorney behind closed door which that attorney alluded to in the courtroom. This is a violation of court rules and violates due process and equal protection. And she makes a devastating ruling that was entirely unnecessary. It tore apart a family and took a father away from his son. This is because Boulder County has a propensity to side always with the woman in a divorce case no matter how bad a person she is. It was even shown that she abuses the child but the court was okay with that.
