What others have said about Hon. Renee G. Goldfarb


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: IL905
Rating:Not Rated
When I was before this judge in the Domestic Relations court, she had been on the bench for approximately six months. She consistently made concessions for the plaintiff, my ex, while holding me to a very strict standard. The plaintiff's attorney, along with members of his family, flattered her unabashedly. Her final decision in my case was so biased that I often wonder if she was personally involved in some way with either the plaintiff or his attorney.


Comment #: IL769
She is very biased in her opinions. Her decisions usually favor the person with the largest legal team. In my case, she let my opponent's legal team instruct her on how to proceed because she was "so green." A pathetic representative of justice.

Comment #: IL486
This Judge is clueless and has a major attitude. Not interested in justice, just telling everyone who will listen, how she is the jdge and how she can do whatever she wants!
