Court Staff

Comment #: NY9845
This judge is gender racially discriminatory and plays identity politics from the bench in violation of judicial oath.


Comment #: NY9365
She will destroy woman's and children's life in favor of man. Your children will be forced to drive 5 days a week for visitations with abuser father. She will ignore children's best interest, law guardian opinion, forensic reports. She will put women in prison for impossibility to comply with her own orders. Her rulings are always in favor of man, not children.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY8752
Based upon my appearances before her in Criminal Court and discussions with colleagues, I recommended that my client waive a jury for a domestic violence case in the IDV Part. The Judge was fair to both sides and excellent with objections - she knows the law well. The Judge did not simply accept the word of the female complaining witness. After considering the mounds of evidence that undermined the woman's credibility the Judge found my client not guilty.
