Comment #: IL2781
If I could give her a zero, I would. Her ruling in my case were given because she is related to the opposing party attorney and she knew the opposing party family memebers. She’s heartless and shouldn’t be making decisions in child custody cases. She didn’t care that the opposing party didn’t complete what was necessary for trial but she didn’t care because she had already made a ruling without caring about the facts. My life and my children life was in jeopardy and she told me that I was lying and inferred that it was ok for me to be harassed because I was going to die anyway. My case went to trial without my attorney being present and I’m not an attorney. I hope she’s removed from the bench and disbarred form ever practicing law again.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: IL2591
Definately not a Judge that should preside over child custody cases. She is very bias, displays a negative attitude towards subornates, unprofessional and should be investaged for willing knowing members of defending families. Her decisions are unethical, unfair and demening... Recommendations is for her to be removed and investaged

Rating:Not Rated
THis judge is bias, favorable for the other party, has no courtroom etiquette, total disregard against mothers in custody cases. She is rude, disrespectful against petitioners and select attorneys. She should be disbarred and stripped of her duties.
