Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL6198
This judge was fabulous! I saw her with all the other people in front of me and she was kind and allowed people to speak for as long as they wanted. When she dealt with my injunction very kindly and considered all the evidence. After dealing with the monster, Judge Galluzzo, she was an absolute delight! Wish she was in family law.

Judge Krause is generous with continuances, and this is important when someone's liberty is at stake. She has always given my clients a fair shake, and it is a pleasure going in front of her. At times, she has entertained rather creative solutions to move a case, and such flexibility is always appreciated. She serves the public well.


Comment #: FL4303
Opens session with Pledge Allegiance to Flag, which should be standard.
Doesn't mind asking questions to ensure both sides are covered. Seems to strive toward justice not just court room maneuvers. Offers opinions and sentences that she feels fit the circumstances and who is involved.
