I cannot say enough good things about this judge. She is patient, fair, thoughtful, reasonable, and takes the time to allow pro se litigants to experience a fair hearing. Her rulings are thoughtful and well grounded in the law. She is a true asset to the bench and a pleasure before whom to practice.
