What others have said about Hon. Betsy Barros


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY5730
I was before Hon. Barrios in a civil case whereby the plaintiff was incapacitated and her husband was appointed guardian. She did a great job with presiding over the guardianship proceedings during a difficult time for the family. She (by way of her staff) was always available by email with regards to scheduling issues and really shepherded the guardianship, supplemental needs trust and underlying case to the best resolution possible. She is a compassionate and even handed judge.

Rating:Not Rated
judge Barros makes up her mind before the case appears before her and then tells litigants that they are wasting their money and her time AS HER MIND IS MADE UP. Don't bother with stipulations as she may agree but goes back on her word.

Overtly biased with covetness & predjudice. never jave I seen the law so overtly disregarded & abused. This judge is a clear example of why they need to be held accountable, & enable the public to sue them civally. This would keep judges like this in check.

Probably one of the worst judges out there -- its scary they let her deal with guardian matters. She should be removed from the bench for incompetence.

Dumb. Doesn't know it. Chooses sides early and without much basis.
