Apparently, this judge doesn't really give a damn about the children that she makes suffer...


Comment #: FL3810
In my oppinion this Juge has made horrific judgements based on bias and hostility. She did not follow rules of procedure and changed peevious rulings by two judges without the proper filings or hearings. She does not recognize disabilities and makes decisions based on her ignorance. She should be sanctioned! She is set to rotate from my case soon and at that time, when I have no fear of her retaliation, the process will be initiated. I have had three years of planning and gathering and getting my ducks in place.

Judge entered a Domestic Violence Injunction on the basis of facts not alleged within the four corners of the Petition and these facts did not allege actual violence but instead alleged a drug addiction. Yes, the client was dangerous to the child in question, but not due to violence. Judge overstepped her abilities to obtain a result that would have properly been heard in the dissolution of marriage context.

My lawyer proved beyond a shadow of a doubt my ex wife was lying and my ex wife prospered beyond the law and I lost everything I have ever worked hard for all my life. I have no respect for Family Law, Judges, Lawyers...
This judge was fiddling with other things while the trial was in progress. Even had her back to us a few times. Jaw dropping. Family Law is a scam! Here is why... you have no choice! You have to go take your beating even when you are innocent and truthful. And then your children suffer the rest of their lives. I simply can't fathom a person without a conscience.

Judge Allan is an outstanding jurist. She has an excellent judicial temperament and she gives everyone a fair hearing on the issues. Judge Allan is intelligent enough to understand complex issues and she has an ability to see through the smoke and mirrors some lawyers try to bring before her.

Judge Allen apparently does well with Criminal Law and Family Law. Real Estate law is not her strong point.

She is the smartest judge on the bench. She was such a team player they almost burned her out keeping her at crime so long. The 6th is lucky to have her - particularly in light of some of the awful judges that have been politically appointed.
