activist judge from the bench. Pro-women in civil cases

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO265
Rating:Not Rated
I totally agree with the comment that this judge legislates from the bench even to the point that she will have attorneys lie to cover up her ignorance of the rules of civil procedure. This judge is an attorney's judge and will beat you down in her courtroom if you come pro se even when you've just lost your child. Terrible experience


Comment #: CO263
Antagonistic, aggressive toward men (I witnessed cases before mine on the docket), punitive to the point of abusive. No regard for logic. Likes the power of the bench, and seems to have no qualms or concerns for consequences of abusing it.


Comment #: CO206
This judge shows little regard for Colorado family law. She legislates from the bench, and often makes rulings that have no Colorado statutes to support them. This judge ignores the facts presented, and rules based on her emotions.
