The worst!


Comment #: NJ2577
I am not sure the term for a woman who hates women, but that is Judge Julie. Especially if the ruled upon party is smart and pretty. Funny though seems she did some couch time to get the job, as she is one of the worst. Cringe if you see her name as judge that you will be working with.

Rules as if she has an important dinner date instead as a prudent, impartial judge. Allowed an abuser to walk, and child was abused immediately thereafter,sickening.

She was my divorce attorney while she was in private practice. I am looking for other clients in her divorce cases between the years of 1998 and 2002. Please contact me at carleenkelly@aol.com

Judge Marino is by far the worst judge I have ever seen. I appeared before her twice on domestic violence. The defendant in my case was a police officer and she was extremely biased in his favor. I believe that her bias was due to the defendant having been a police officer. I am a victim and she totally trivialized my victimization. She intentionally set out to embarrass, humiliate and belittle me. Her words and actions against me, in front of the defendant, served to validate his victimization of me and will encourage him to consider future abuse of me and/or other innocent victims. Judge Marino is irresponsible and mean-spirited and her behavior in court borders on criminality.

I have had the pleasant opportunity of going before her on a few occasions. She is absolutely awesome! She has a lot of patience; she is obviously overwhlemed being the presiding Judge; therefore, whomever saw her as biased, must be joking themselves. I have had Judges who could care less about matters, but love the power they get - not Judg Marino. I see her more like a problem solver than problem creator. She was very, very, very fair in all the opinions I have seen before her. I amy not have ruled like she did, but I understand her reasoning and logic! Know your stuff before going before her, because she knows hers. Be polite to her and she is always friendly in my opinion. 99.9999% of lawyers I have spoken with feel the same as I do.

Extremely intelligent and focused on helping litigants see through the emotions and get to resolving the true issues. Very fair and ethical. Highly respected among the great majority of the attorneys who practice in front of her with any frequency.

I have only appeared before Judge Marino a few times so my knowledge is limited in many areas. However, from my limited experience, she seems competent and is doing a good job for the bar.

She is the most biased judge that I have ever seen! She is absolutely horrible! Likes to communicate with the plaintiff outside of court. Illegal!
