Comment #: NY5247
I'm not sure why she is there. Doesn't anyone see how unfair she is?


Comment #: NY5175
She is the worst judge ever, and very biased in favor of women. She never ever listens to the men's side.
She treats lawyers with no respect whatsoever. My experience with her is rated zero.

She treated me as though I were sub-human. She was rude and condescending. Yes, this judge gave me the impression that she is pro-women. Does this judge know how vindictive the custodian parent (the mother) was to me in the past? I am a good man and a law-abiding citizen. I am appalled by these type of support judges who bring their personal attitude to their jobs, and who are making decisions based on my monetary livelihood. This support judge was very disappointing in the way that she handled my case. The system is broken and needs serious reform. Something really has to be done, because these support judges are destroying lives.

She is very biased and favors mothers, even deadbeat mothers. It seems like she is biased against men who fight for their rights.
