What others have said about Hon. Kathy C. Qasim



Comment #: NJ3136
This is a horrible judge. She made a bad decision and my daughter is in a home now being abused and I am still fighting. My ex wife does drugs drinks and fights her parents. This one sided feminist doesn't care about children only her agenda. Didn't listen to any common sense no matter how much it made during the hearing. No matter how many police reports I have to prove the abuse this judge didn't care about anything but selfish reasons


Comment #: NJ3110
Great judge. I was mostly before her in juvenile court but heard good things about her trials/PCRs in law division. Reasonable and fair


Comment #: NJ3109
Horrible judge, very one sided. Does not read any of the case materials and makes completely one sided decisions without any reasoning.

Our adversary was pro se and Judge Qasim handled a messy non-dissolution case with grace. Amazing BS detector. In one day she did a hearing, child interview, and we left with a full order by the afternoon. No unexpected plenaries and everyone gets a chance to speak. Hard as nails but VERY accommodating to parents... spends time with the P/T minutia of exchanges, transportation, school, etc. so people don't come back to court later.


Comment #: NJ3084
I had a terrible experience, I think she means we'll but she completely ignored the case history. I would say is 100 percent bias on favor women. Be careful, previous court which had been violated were blatantly ignored. You will need a very strong attorney and even than you can have your case completely undone. I believe that she thinks she means we'll but I just don't think she has the experience when it comes to dealing with conieving mothers. You may use strong language in court but ultimately she will not enforce a court order. Good luck and kiss your kids goodbye along with your case.

Pretty sloppy work. Orders are completely biased and without any strong reasoning. Saw multiple orders with lots of mistakes.

cool lady, I had a custody hearing and left with closure. she seems busy but will work with people who don't have lawyers. cares about kids and listens to people but also takes other judge's orders seriously

Down to earth and good at resolving cases expeditiously and correctly. Judge Qasim knows trial practice and the rules of evidence. Detailed orders and helpful staff. We will miss her in family court!

The case was disposed of quickly, efficiently, and frankly fairly. The lawyer and the client were satisfied with the outcome.
