I was before this judge on a child support matter. I received very unfair treatment and I think the judge skirted the laws and overinterpretted on various matters. Generally speaking, she was punishing me for other fathers who are very much behind in their child support.

This Judge lacks logical judgement, makes illogical decisions and appears to decide her cases, not on the facts or the law, but rather on who she likes or doesn't like, whether that be parties or the attorneys who come before her. In the long run, time and again her decisions appear to lead to poor results and she is proven wrong. She has stereotypical view of the world even when the evidence shows otherwise. She is more concerned with her ego than with getting the outcome right. She picks a side or a lawyer in the beginning and does everything in favor of that one side no matter what as demonstrates the exact opposite of evenhandedness.
