A true liberal with her own adgenda for using the Courts to legislate. If your a mom or female you will always win.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

She is disrespectful and rude. She has a superior attitude that she is not worthy of having. She also let abuse of a child go on in her Court rooms. She is a disgrace.

An excellent, fair, extremely well prepared and courteous judge. She read ALL the papers for a huge summary judgment motion and made the right decision, which required a lot more work on her part.
