Comment #: IL2957
In 2012...Judge Strickland said, quote, "I don't care about the Lake County Rules or the Law. " "I am the judge so therefore I am the law. " "Now have it made that clear to you?".


Comment #: IL2401
Horrible: Said and I quote: "I don't care about the lake county rules or the law". "I am the judge so therefore I am the law". "Do you have that clear". Said this to me in open court on 3/31/17...unbelievable but absolutely true!


Comment #: IL848
I value this judge and his opinions. This judge took his time and heard the facts on both sides. He protected a child from his mother (who was an extreme alcoholic), and he gave protection to the child by turning over the child to the father. With all the emotions that went along with this case, Judge Strickland made a tough decision and did the right thing. Thank goodness there are judges out there who can truly look out for the welfare of a child.


Comment #: IL818
This judge was completely prejudiced against me as soon as he found out that I would be representing myself, since I do not have the funds to hire an attorney.
