What others have said about Hon. Monica Gordo



Comment #: FL6951
Rating:Not Rated
She is calm angry. Attitude problem and does not care if you do not agree with her. What a bad person. Makes up her mind early and doesn't mind what she does to hurt others.

Comment #: FL6856
A judge that preferred to simpathize with a crying manipulative person than to look at 300 pages of evidence. A judge that is not impartial and is pro- woman.Case took more than a year and it felt as if she stalled. Do not go to her without an attorney.


Comment #: FL6731
I practiced before Judge Gordo years ago as a young prosecutor and credit her for making me a much better courtroom advocate. She stands out as she is exceedingly intelligent, efficient, and hardworking. Her overall style is more consistent with federal judges I have subsequently been in front of. She is respectful and professional to all sides, but also no-nonsense for the most part. She expects attorneys to do their homework, communicate with each other before court, and stay on schedule. The attorney(s) complaining in these other reviews were likely unprepared to be in front of a serious judge.

She often fails to appear, requiring a change of schedule and cannot handle basic issues.

Comment #: FL6238
Very sad that a Judge that has never stepped foot inside Family Court as an attorney is now a Judge making serious decisions over families and most importantly, children. Sadder still is the attitude, arrogance and self-serving comments from a judge on the bench. Once again, the Family Division is the home for an incompetent and disrespectful judiciary.

Awful, quite disorganized. Not a wonder she is headed back to family court.


Comment #: FL6053
She is an asset to the bench. I am a court reporter and she has always been very pleasant and fair.

This jurist is rude, impatient and not a good reflection of judicial even handedness. Is known to be occupied on the computer during evidentiary hearings even when the Court is the trier of fact.
