Children have died under this persons direct supervision and judgeship. He should be disbarred.

Worst family court judge i have ever seen in my life. My personal opinion is that she is responsible for the death of Kyra Franchetti. She has zero training in domestic violence. She is told in open court of domestic violence situations and disreagards the facts. How on Gods earth she became a family court Judge and is moving to Supremem court is beyond comprehension. If you are in a custody battle and Danielle Peterson is your judge I would be requesting a new Judge. She clearly does not have the experience or training to be in charge of what happens to your child.

God Bless Kyra Franchetti.
If Judges listened, really listened to domectic violence survivors and did not form an opinion on one hearing and make statements they have no right to make, it could prevent tragedy. I dont wish domestic violence on anyone, Judge Peterson:you have no idea what it is like to me in my shoes... i hope you never experience it, and if you do God help you and give a judge that is IMPARTIAL, unlike you.

I have one question for this Judge:
How do you sleep at night????
Judge Peterson should be thrown off the bench. She is a self righteous, biased, horrible Judge. She does not go by what the law is but what her own personal opinion is. She makes comments that are unwarranted and feels she can say whatever she wants to anyone. This Judge needs to be removed from the bench before she puts more children in serious danger. Her cases and transcripts should all be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

This judge is biased against fathers. She believes everything mothers say regardless of how absurd, ridiculous or impossible. She listens to the mothers' accusations and doesn't even bother hearing the fathers' side of the story. Accusation = conviction in her court. She does nothing to stop mothers from abusing the system and blatantly lying. Men are dirt in her view and deserve this treatment. She puts on a good act pretending to care about children but only does what the mother wants.


Comment #: NY10460
I found from experience, this judge does not follow the guidelines of the law. I found her to be abusive of power and does not consider the best interest of the children, which I have proof of. If this judge was assigned to you I would recommend requesting a different judge.
