Diane Kiesel makes a mockery of our judicial system. She doesn't follow the law. She does what is easiest for her. She goes with the flow, instead of what's right and just. She is a disgrace to the bench!!!

Probation or Pretrial Officer

Comment #: NY5928
She is truly bias towards men as is the law guardian Erin burkavage who is the children's attorney as I wrote them both a letter stating of anything happens to my children I am suing them and this corrupt court system as I have documented cases of abuse towards the children from their mother Yexenia pubill and it's disgraceful on how bias the court system is for mothers and how the system treats the fathers.

She does not make decisions based on evidence, and causes the separation of children and parents. She makes a joke of the court system, and when you sit there and see how lawyers fool her, it insults your intelligence.

I have no confidence in her judgment capacity; she is always referring to a legal book or to her clerks to provide the needed info at hand, and is unable to make a decision on the day of the final verdict. She delays proceedings and emails the decision one to two weeks later, or needs more time to make a decision -- and by more time, I mean months.

In God she does not trust. I don't know how she sleeps at night. I'm a good person and a law abiding citizen. These things should not happen to someone like me. This is very unfair.
