What others have said about Hon. Honora O'Brien Kilgallen



Comment #: NJ4208
Extremely fair, courteous, respectful and just. Took the time to read all the paperwork, and all the evidence presented and did not allow any interruptions from either side to ensure that everyone received their time to speak. Level-headed and impartial based her decisions on fact not emotion and maintained order and respect during the proceeding. No excuse and no nonsense kind of judge and made sure to hold both parties accountable as opposed to just one.

A true liberal with her own adgenda for using the Courts to legislate. If your a mom or female you will always win.

She need to go.

She is disrespectful and rude. She has a superior attitude that she is not worthy of having. She also let abuse of a child go on in her Court rooms. She is a disgrace.

Comment #: NJ561
An excellent, fair, extremely well prepared and courteous judge. She read ALL the papers for a huge summary judgment motion and made the right decision, which required a lot more work on her part.
