One of the worst judges in the state of nj. Fails to consider precedential law and has a rude and confrontational temperament. Fails to address legal arguments raised.

Absolute bully. Decision made prior to hearing. Does not even allow you to speak without rudely interrupting you. Hardly impartial to pro se litigants...says on the record that she has to hear these things because they paid their 200.00.
