What others have said about Hon. Mathew Harter



Comment #: NV44
My divorce/child custody was with judge Harter and I have to say that he was pretty fair. Though I was the victorious party I don't believe I won unfairly. He took the time to read through the motions and didn't start our proceedings half cocked on his own options. Don't get me wrong he was harsh, to me and the other party. He did not pull his punches nor did he sugar coat anything. The other party tried saying I was a drug addict abuser that never took care of my child, and the judge did not over look the accusation. And he did not play around when he said I had to be to the drug testing facility within 15 mins of the ending of court, or when he checked with cps about false reports to cps. He made the amazing effort in checking the records himself because he wanted to make sure the i wasn't the abuser the other party spoke of. But he was fair, and looked at the big picture. I am very happy with judge Harter and am thankful that I did get him as a judge.

I appeared before Judge Harter without an attorney. Harter was obnoxious, disrespectful, and condescending. When I brought up some valid legal points he became angry and decided to invent his own interpretation of a court order to inflict monetary punishment upon me. Thisman is a disgrace to the legal profession!


Comment #: NV11
He ruled in favor of a child alienator, liar, cheater and slime bag. He also ruled that a good mother only have "skype visitation" with her children 3 days a week for 1/2. His ruling was hostile towards a mother that loves her children very much.
