I have been before several judges and work in the legal field myself though I do not practice law. I must say that Judge Emons is absolutely the worst judge to appear before when it comes to family matters. She makes decisions based upon hearsay before letting all the parties have a chance to speak. She is rude, has no manners, yells at parties, and has no tolerance for much. Most family law cases are predominantly pro-se and she has no empathy towards anyone, nor does she care about the well being of children involved. She does not review the case properly ahead of time, and will just believe anything someone says without facts. Hopefully she retires sooner than later, as that will be better for us all.

Doesn't know family law not does she know the law when it pertains to active duty military families. Unreasonable and completely biased based on who she deals with not the actual law. Very disappointed this is the only judge in Milford that handles family matters. She needs to be replaced

Has no true understanding about law, especially family legal matters. Conducts secret, behind the scene -
status, ex-parte status conferences illegally. Most decisions based on nothing more then hearsay. Very biased. Can get VERY flustered and she yells and runs off the bench almost daily.

This judge judges case before the case is heard and she does does this even when she is not the judge hearing the case.

Shoot from the hip is an understatement. This judge issues ex parte orders like candy for her favorites. She lacks judicial temperament and wants quick solutions to complex problems. Essentially a lazy bitter terrible person with a robe on. Be very wary of getting anything close to justice from her. Just god awful especially in family court where the issues often require patience and intellect and curiousity. She has none of the above. Worst judge I've e er appeared before.

Cuts to chase. Solves complex issues with thought and extra effort. Even handed. Fair. Best Judge in Stamford, quite a loss when she left.

This is the most biased Judge I have seen. She clearly does not concern herself with facts. I can't understand how she can sleep at night for the gross misconduct.

With 85 percent pro se, Judge Emons is not even remotely kind to this majority. Her constant status conferences for attorneys, many in her chambers illegally robs children's legal guardians from their entire parenting process. Don't ever agree to GAL or AMC and insist of list of "vendors" if you are ordered for schedulers or other nonsense.

Smart, but tends to hip shoot. "Cuts to the chase" pre-maturely and renders uninformed decisions. Court congestion may force some of this behavior, but she is as responsible as anybody for the backlog by kowtowing to the regulars. Openly hostile to pro se litigants.

She is the best judge in Stamford. She solves very difficult problems with thoughtfulness. She goes above and beyond to make up for the difficult process set up by the legislature to address family matters. She is able to see through the lies and deceit prevalent in family matters. She renders fair and thorough decisions that stand up to the appeals process.
