Fantastic! 10 stars across the board. Judge Brinkley is a great addition to the bench. She knows the law, is dedicated and unwavering. She also runs a smooth courtroom and is loved by the staff and courtroom personnel. The community is lucky to have such a dedicated jurist to serve on its behalf.

Judge Brinkley is a great judge and runs an excellent courtroom. I have nothing but great experiences in front of her, even when she has ruled against me. She's well prepared, very knowledgeable and very respectful to her colleagues and to the participants in her court room. Finally, a breath of fresh air on the bench.

Just an insufferable bore. Has unjustified sense of superiority. Runs a chaotic courtroom.

Arrogant, doesn't know the law. Doesn't seem to care.


Comment #: FL3380
This rookie acting judge in DV has no idea what she is doing. Applications for TRO's are denied despite the applicant providing more than enough evidence to be approved, leaving victims of violence unprotected from their attackers. She's at the South Dade Justice Center, so head downtown where the DV judges (except for Judge Sarduy) know what they're doing.
