Rating:Not Rated
She is destroying my whole family. She is torching my niece, who is an excellent mother. She took my nieces and nephew away from their mother, who was a respectable teacher and has not seen her kids in over a year. She "RIP" the baby out of her mother's arms. NO VISITATION...WHAT KIND OF JUDGE DOES THAT. She does not follow the law when hearing her cases. She favors the fathers over the mothers. She is not fair (and I could go on) and should be remove from the COURTS for her actions. She should not be able to rule on cases. She does what she wants and doesn't follow guidelines/law. She doesn't even read the papers involving the case. REMOVE HER


Comment #: NJ2245
Has tortured my neice and sister with her refusal to deal with fact and has allowed the continued poisoning of the children to the point where, by the fathers decree, they don't want to see/reunificate with the mother.

She is despicable!


Comment #: NJ2217
She is biased towards mothers and rules from her beliefs not from case rulings. She should not be reelected to family court!!


Comment #: NJ2141
She did the same thing to me. She made decisions based on her own opinions of me and also tried to make DCPP open a fn case against me. They refused because they didn't want to get themselves I'm trouble. She left me with with no recourse.


Comment #: NJ2030
Judge violated civil and constitutional rights. Based decision on hearsay alone, refused to look at documents in front of her.
