Comment #: FL4763
Very disrespectful to her staff. She has fired secretary after secretary. Changes Bailiffs often. Rude and poor manners

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL3096
The worst judge on the bench. She treats everyone jn her courtroom with a complete lack of respect, including her staff. She is flat-out rude.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL2543
Apparently is unable to come to terms that she is no longer a State Attorney. Just a nasty disposition. Somewhat knowledgeable but extremely pro-state on criminal matters and clueless on civil matters.

Court Staff

Comment #: FL2540
Rating:Not Rated
Just abusive to everyone. Thinks she's the smartest person in the room and rarely is.


Comment #: FL2420
If you are a smoker, don't let her know. Your case will be over then and there regardless of it's merits.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL1363
Patronizing & arrogant. Thinks Domestic Violence is beneath her.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL702
I agree completely with both comments below. Judge Brennan will be a good judge, but isn't one yet. I saw her hesitate in granting a domestic violence injunction against a respondent who flat out committed perjury in court. Once she gets used to the civil rules and the civil burden of proof, she should be OK, though.

Comment #: FL297
Will be a fine judge. Needs time to learn.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL250
Judge Brennan needs to recognize that civil cases cannot be determined under criminal law. Apparently, she has not grasped the distinction yet.
