I think an accurate description of her is to describe her as an Italian American Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter books and films. Mercifully, she doesn't punctuate her comments with the vile, twittering laugh perfected by Imelda Staunton. Add in the laugh, though, and her soul is revealed. Runs a tight ship as presiding judge and allows the judges beneath her to run rough shod over litigants' rights and ignore clear, competent evidence of perjury established by competent documentary evidence.

I found Pitchford, won't even call her a Judge or use the keyword honorable when I mentioned her.
The lady is married to another judge, which is her third marriage, and believes she is unpunishable by the law. She worked as a criminal prosecutor for a about 18 years, yet at the same time, she violating the law in the court rooms continously.
If the American happy family will chant "black lives matter, when is the state of New Jersey supporting the continous abuse of an African American woman, Pitchfod, to abuse mulsim middle eastern males just beacuse they want to divorce their muslim middle eastern abusive wives! Where is the presiding judge and state family court executives from all of this?

Not sure how she became a presiding judge. She has municipal court background and possibly good political connections which led to her judgeship. She does not have the depth and sense of fairness and justice that an accomplished judge would exhibit. Run of the mill low caliber judge who is incapable of recognizing even the basic issues a case presents. Looks like her focus is how to wrap them up no matter what the cost to a litigant may be. Dark indeed.
