This judge is beyond horrible. She has wronged my family in many ways, and made horrible decisions, but what is most important is that she does not take the child's best interest into consideration.... Which is supposed to be her job entirely. I have dealt with this judge for years and have been wronged in ways that seem impossible, but in the end my son has been hurt more than anyone because of her.

She is BIASED against men. The Guardian Ad Liidum has time and time again, made their recommendation, and STILL no decisions are made. She doesn't make decisions and wastes taxpayers money. She is not doing her job and fAILS to adhere to legal documents. Revisits documents that have been deemed illogical refuses to read documents, FAILS to hear the dangers of this case.and police reports in her opinion are ``hear say!``When will this judge be excused from our case? She has been dragging it for over two years and should be removed from the bench!

She fails to make rulings. BIASED against men. GAL has time and time again, made his recommendation. STILL no decision. Costing more and more $$$$$$$ for no other reason, than she is not doing her job. I am not the only one who has had this judge. BIASED. FAILS to adhere to legal documents. Revisits documents that have been deemed illogical. FAILS to read documents, FAILS to hear the dangers of this case. Police documents are `` hear say``...when will this judge be excused from our case? She has dragged it on now for two years. Had Judge Morrow for the first year. WHAT a waste of taxpayers dollars to have this uneducated woman on the bench.
