What others have said about Hon. Katie A. Gummer



Comment #: NJ4300
Great Judge (and not just because she ruled in my favor, but mostly I guess). She ruled against my 3 cousins in an estate matter. She saw right through the lies of these deceitful evil women. Didn't fall for their schtick. She is not friendly but not mean either. An evenhanded Judge and not biased.

I appeared in front of Judge Gummer twice, once when she was in the Chancery Division and once when she was in the Law Div. She was rude and unpleasant in both of my dealings with her. She berated me on the record for being 5 minutes late and made a legal error in one of the cases, despite my arguments to her that she was incorrect.

Judge Gummer is incredibly industrious and has cleared the backlog in General Equity. Sometimes very serious, but only if you have repeatedly missed deadlines or are discourteous to adversaries. She always reads all the papers. Even when losing, it usually is the right call.
