The most judgmental person on the face of the earth. Gratuitous nastiness abounds from the bench. Be prepared for caustic comments and insults.

Once again dealing with Judge Purpura is like dealing with an unstable chair- you never know when or how it will flip over but it always flips! She is nasty, rude, insecure, and treats her position as a public servant like she is the Red Queen. Unless you are Andy Alperstein she is demeaning, often confused or wrong or she confuses issues and blames the parties in front of her. She is not a lady and she not a role model.

She was extremely unprofessional. The rolling of the eyes and head shaking. She was extremely biased and prejudiced and it was so obvious. Her knowledge of civil law was non-existent. She is a pitiful excuse for a Judge. She desperately needs to be evaluated on how she handles cases.

Honorable Judge Purpura was extremely professional. I arrived late and she reminded me of court etiquette. I have never heard a judge say, "Always call." I truly appreciated her candor. Regarding the handling of my case evidence Hon. Judge Purpura listened and ruled accordingly without fan fair or pretenses. Thank You for your professionalism Judge Purpura.

If there was a "0" rating she would have gotten that! This judge is a disgrace! She is delusional and disgusts me. If something happens to the child who is in the hands of a monster full-time now, I blame it on this evil, sick "judge". I don't know what her problem is, but there was significant evidence that was totally disregarded--including that from a licensed psychologist who was appointed by the court to evaluate the parties in this case. Unbelievable!!!

Awful to appear before. She seems extremely biased against female defendants. Behaves like a schoolyard bully. Seems insecure and easily threatened. Has a need to unnecessarily assert her authority.

Immature and insulting. Has to be the smartest person in the room or she will become mean. Can be rude to defendants and subjective on major issues. Will not listen- makes up her mind ahead of time. She is also emotionally unbalanced.
