Worst judge ever! Very emotional and rude. She gives single moms EVERYTHING and my lawyer told me she always order crazy amount of child support and make sure the fathers are totally broke and screwed. She's a angry bitter single mom that's the reason why she hates men.

Yes she is incompetent. Gender is irrelevant when she makes her rulings. Evidence is also irrelevant. Her sole concern is her own personal agenda. Period. There is nothing coherent or consistent about her rulings. She has neither heart nor conscience. What she does to the children is shameful. If there is anything that can be done to remove her from the bench - it should have been done long ago.

Just went to her court room with my ex wife for child support hearing. I'm the father and yes. I got Fxxked just like all the fathers in here. I love my two kids like no tomorrow but now I don't even want to deal with that part of my life. The judge looks at me like a criminal when she was looking at my tax returns. My lawyer said she looks at all the fathers like criminals too, she always makes sure she gives the moms a lot of child support so they can stay home and don't even have to try to lift a finger to get a job. My ex wife quit her job on purpose when she know she is going to get $2000 a month from me. She even told me" why work? You are going to pay more than I make and I don't want to work" This judge order me to pay for her lawyer fees because " she is broke " and I have to pay for my kids daycare, sports, Heath insurance , and don't know why the hell I owe $6000 back child support just because my ex is not financial capable !!! She quit her job and lives with a 69 years old. My lawyer was trying to show her the texts and the judge just ignored it and said she doesn't care and told us to get out. Now I know why so many deadbeat dads out there. Not because they want to be. Is the system created deadbeat dads and men don't even have a chance to get a ahead in life again because you will only owe more and more and see your kids less and less because you are too busy paying child support and can't even have money to take your kids out!

The judge hates men and favors all the single moms. I have like 5 male clients got nailed by her in court without doing anything wrong but 3 female clients got everything they wanted in her court room even I think they didn't deserve to award those requests. What people are talking about in here is true. I think people have emotions but the judges should hear the stories from both side before they make ANY decisions. Judge Sandy is only making the parenting thing became a battle between two parents, it's really not fair to the kids. I hope she will realize how unreasonable she acts sometimes.

I would say just try to avoid this judge if you are a male. Change judge at the first place or just prepare to be screwed in her court room. If you are women. Make sure you cry very hard. Good luck. God bless you all.

Can we get a group of victims and lawyers together and get something done? She is ridiculous. She is beyond horrible. She has too much power to get revenge on men by being a bitter single mother.

Judge Sandra Pomrenze, the rudest women alive, who did not practice family law before becoming a judge! She know nothing about family law. She does whatever she wants, gives single mothers anthing they ask for, gets money from couple big name lawyers in town ( K Smith, E Roy, B hofland)

This judge never reads anything. Always gives the mother what she wants. Doesn't care about the father or the children. Family court is a joke.

This judge is very black and white where the law is concerned. Best interests of the children? Not even a consideration from what I witnessed. This judge handed over 2 children to a drug addict and convicted felon numerous times over who abandons her children often because of a gambling addiction. She has since gave the mother the power to alienate the children from the only parent they know their father. We have traveled from another state to fight a loosing battle because this judge is a lesBian who favors women! I have never seen family law be handled so carelessly. This judge (and perhaps all nevada family court judges) should come to California and sit in on family law cases to see how they act when they truly care about the children. You don't even need an attorney to approach our judges because our judges CARE about the welfare of the children. It's just sad.

She has refused any and (ALL) evidence, and what I was told multiple times by my attorney was "she had made her choice from day one". She almost always sides with the mother, NO MATTER WHAT! Unless they are total meth, coke, crack prostitutes with multiple incarnation's, you lose for being born a male. EVERYONE, PLEASE LISTEN! My Ex cheated on me with a millionaire, old by the way. Filed a TPR, said I abandoned my wonderful children, who I would dIE for, and mrs pomrenze made up her mind on the FIRST hearing, cause of the expensive attorney she had (my ex) she was going to grant it!!! I don't do drugs, been to college, teach music, but because I don't fit (HER) expectations as a father, never heard my evidence btw, went on to murder me, well.. Murder my role as the truly loving, caring, giving, do ANYTHING for my children father I really am. I just pray she does not get the chance to do this to someone else. God bless you all

This judge's propensity to ignore repeated perjury (and even most times to reward those who perjure themselves) leaves little cause to show respect for the courts. Far too often, testimony turns into character assassination through unsubstantiated innuendo, perpetrated by both clients and their attorneys alike, which is then knee-jerk reacted upon by the judge's following of improper procedure with no regard for even a modicum of proof being presented or required. As a result, the person(s) being slandered are not only victimized by opposing council, but also victimized repeatedly by the courts when they are subjected to extra fees, wasted time, and travel expenses in order to obtain proof of their innocence. Meanwhile, the perjurers get a free pass and delays in adjudication, which again continue to penalize the victims as the attorney's fees continue to mount. As the saying goes: "It's so obvious that even Ray Charles can see it." That leaves just two questions: firstly, if a blind man can see it, why can't the judge see that the court is being manipulated? Justice should be no more blind than Ray Charles. Secondly, what level of intelligence is being displayed by the judge of this courtroom? It's high time that the courts show respect for the taxpayers who pay their salaries by recognizing the manipulators for what they are, and start penalizing them for misleading the judge, outright lying, or perjuring themselves -- felonies all.

This judge does not seem to read the motions, or even care to hear the facts from either side. She literally told the other attorney, "You're boring me." Then when my lawyer tried to speak, she said, "Are you going to bore me too?" I was attacked, and my child witnessed the whole ordeal, and has not wanted 50/50 visitation, but this judge has awarded just that, even though the D.A.'s office had a trial date set! This judge continues to deny multiple requests for child interviews, even though my child is "of age" to do so. This judge cannot possibly have the best interest of the child in mind when she doesn't even care to hear what the child has to say!

Why did she ever become a judge? She does not listen to the facts at all, she does not care what the children want at all, she favors certain lawyers and if you work in the system you're going to get whatever you want, even if you outright lie in your motion. Take her off the bench and get real judges who know how to do their job!

What a disgrace and an embarrassment! Family courts were supposed to be an improvement over the old system. Taxpayers and families are being ripped off. Why this judge was not disbarred long ago is indeed disturbing. Her actions in any other venue would be considered criminal. She needs to be prosecuted for criminal negligence and wanton endangerment -- but that would never repair the damage incurred by this monstrosity. If she is an example of what is typical in our judicial system, the Revolution was a waste of time, money, energy and human life. Vigilante justice is saintly compared to what is happening in this judge's Nevada courtroom.

I took four parenting classes and still only got three hours a week. I even did the optional drug patches and passed all of them. I just want it to be fair! I just want to watch my daughter grow up, but I'm not allowed because the mother is allowed to lie, with no proof. It's sad and I want to go public with my case because no one should be treated like this. The mother of my child is a social worker and knows how to manipulate people. Can anyone help me go public?

This judge is terrible, just terrible. Her demeanor is arrogant and condescending. She pays little or no attention to detail, and has no grasp of the laws she rules on, and therefore makes conflicting rulings from hearing to hearing.

I am embarrassed that she is on the bench. This is the rudest judge that I have ever seen. This judge clearly shows favoritism towards certain attorneys. She actually made statements of fact without any evidence supporting the statements, then proceeded to lecture me about the "best interests of the child." I have a doctorate in that area!

This judge has decided to supplement the statutes with her own opinions. It has been a nightmare dealing with this Judge. Pomrenze has repeatedly made demeaning remarks towards me and the co-litigant. Her speeches convey a perfect example of coercing the litigants into a settlement. I can see why so many people have lost trust in the judiciary. It is because of Judges like Pomrenze. She should be removed from the bench!

I was the full time father of two wonderful boys. At the initial divorce Pomeranze decided to go to NRS 125.480 to justify her decision to give the mother primary custody. 125.480 states, "Best interests of child;preferences;presumptions when court determines parent or person seeking custody is perpetrator of domestic violence or has committed act of abduction against child or any other child." None of this appllies to me in any way, shape, or form! I have been denied my right to be a father because Pomeranze applied the wrong NRS to justify her egregious decision.

Sandra Pomeranze is horrible. How do you say you want a child interviewed and then say you dont care what the child has to say and give the mother the ok to take the child because she primary and JUST (I mean just like the 3 days before court) got married and she feels that is enough reason??? Why waste people time in court. We need a judge that will read motions and if the child is interviewed listent to what the child has to say. I am a female and what I saw makes me wonder why they place bitter woman in family court if they can not be fair to both men and woman. I was just watching this case not even my issue but from what I heard I was shocked of how she rules. I hope they do take her off the bench.

Sandra Pomeranze and the word "judge" should not be used in the same sentence. She rules without evidence and apparently cannot comprehend the statutes. If she doesn't like you regardless of whether it is warranted or not, don't ever expect to get treated fairly in the future. She is a disgrace to the bench. She should be assigned to parking tickets, if anything at all. Words alone cannot describe how inept she is in the application of the law. Fellow Las Vegans, be concerned.

Its funny that most of the folks that take the time to rate judges on here are the ones that didnt earn judgement in their favor. People that think they should have things their way or no way. These are the people that make family courts a necessity.

This Judge is belligerent and self righteous. She obviously does not read the motions before her. She contradicts her own decisions from one hearing to the next. God help you if you present her with a transcript… she goes nuts when presented with the facts. She has waffled her position more than once on a moderately straight forward dispute and as a result, we’ve had four hearings and no decisions. No wonder the RJ found her to be the lowest rated Family Court judge currently serving.

She is a fair judge in my humble opinion. I am the other litigant in one of the before mentioned comments. The 24 yr old from Texas. I am the father in this case and the comment beforehand is obviously one sided. There is alot of detail missing. With that said, judge pomeranze has put my feet to the coals as well. She is stern but fair bottomline. We have only been in front of her twice, but there will be no crap in her court from either party or attorney. One had better be prepaired and follow all procedures.

One sided, She should not be on the bench, I am a single father of two little girls and I would do and doing everything I can for my girls, she does not look out for best interests of the children, she laughed in my face and took their mothers side, she has issues of her own and needs to definitely be evaluated, we need a judge that takes the responsibility of doing what is right , not some crazed lady with her own issues, we need a good judge with real concerns for the family and what is right ,

She ordered a 24 yr old with a one year old infant to return from family in Texas, to leave her full-time job, childcare, and home,and to return the child to Clark County in 7 days so that the boyfriend living with his mother (a traveling nurse - they're from Texas as well)can have visitation rights the 1st & 3rd weekend of each month. She has no car, and now no income, and no where to live. This judge has no good judgement at all seeing she did not even hear the entire case, and started using the "F" word in court when she got angry ( a habitual pattern from my research). She made a judgement that was NOT in the best interest of the child, only that of jurisdiction and of her own interests.
She should be disbarded.

This woman should not be ruling in any family issues. She is rude,and one sided . She allowed a known offender of domestic violence not only to my kids but to me as well to grant his custody and I didn't do a thing wrong. He is bipolar with a temperament that is truly freighting. He does not work and just by me saying that I was going to call his father, he wet is pants he was so scared. She needs to be thrown off the bench and arrested. How many more children is this judicial system screwing up because of her cold heart and absolutely no compassion. I pray for any and all of you whoever has to face that obnoxious monster in court. and to condone allowing a man to keep 2 kids hostage for 9 months is just inhumane and the only way i was allowed to see them is by his supervision. I had all reports. Domestic violence, character witnesses and even a lawyer. And she didn't care. At lease not about the well being of my precious boys who might I add, I am not allowed to see again because he doesn't want to let me. I have to find out their well being by their guidance counselor at school. Its heart breaking. Someone , If you can, please help me. I am heartbroken without my twins.

This Judge will not read the motions before her. She will not let people have their say regarding whats going on. She is very Pro Mother especially being a single mother herself she gives mothers chance after chance while will nail fathers to the wall. I really find it hard to beleive she is impartial.
