Pathetic excuse for a Family Court Judge! Awards drug abusing custodial parents 50/50 with no safe guards for drug testing after the hearing. She is the WORST!!!!!! Have no idea how she became a Judge! She's a Troll!


Comment #: FL3812
Non-attentive, clueless to the facts and punishes the innocent (the children) with her mindless rulings. Allows admitted (in court) drug and alcohol abusing felons 50/50 with no child support..............She's a Pathetic excuse for a Judge!


Comment #: FL3762
She often fell asleep or appeared to be disinterested. She did not look at the facts presented in our case which were clearly there.
She is often appealed in many of her cases.
Worthless as a judge.


Comment #: FL3694
I agree. She does not listen to the facts and is frequently overturned and does not seem to care. She really ruined my life and we must report this so she will not ruin other lives.
Please join me in contacting the Judicial Qualifying Committee to file a complaint: 850-488-1581 and Chief Judge Colbath: 561-355-7845.

She can not be Re-elected and must banned from Family division because she has no brain!!!

She doesn't seem to listen nor to care! If you have a problem with your ex following the parenting plan and and you are seeking help from the system, forget it! I have spoken to different lawyers and the answers were the same: she is not bright! We need a judge that: cares, sees and smells what's happening. That is not the case. Sorry, you are out of luck if you got her!
