What others have said about Hon. Mary S. Trew



Comment #: IL3794
Agreed with previous comments re; lack of preparation/familiarity with her cases, prone to be rude/condescending and clearly biased.

Would also add the following:
-Doesn't seem to understand the law fully
-Berates & bullies pro se litigants
-Zero patience
-Will defer to unnecessary continuances & delays when it suits her schedule
-Lack of commitment/diligence in her duties

Editorial: if you're so burned out and unwilling to do the job properly...retire and let someone who actually cares about the law and helping people take your spot.


Comment #: IL3567
This judge refused to see any one's side but hers. Not only did she disregarded anything I had to say but she belittled me. She refuses to acknowledge anything I say and always takes the woman's side even without hearing or reading the case. She's rude and has no respect for anyone.


Comment #: IL3263
I think she needs to take time and learn about her cases before making decisions that affect people lives. It seems like she doesn't open file until the moment case is up for review/trial.
Very dissappointed that an appointed judge can be so unprofessional and biased.
