Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9660
Thinks she is much smarter than she really is. Tries to torpedo Plaintiff's cases if she believes demands are too high for her liking. Not impartial.

This Judge should not be assigned to Special Trial Part. She does not look at both arguments and overtly sides with the defendant regardless of what the facts are. Her efforts are counterproductive in what she is assigned to do, settle or send out cases. She does not have the temperament to be a judge, in my opinion as a former sitting member of the Bronx Judicial Screening Committee.

She is tough but fair. Very accessible, prompt and professional. Knows the law and doesn't tolerate nonsense in her courtroom. She is respectful to everyone she comes in contact with.

This judge lives up to her reputation as someone who speaks before thinking. Zero common sense. No control of the family courtroom. Easily baboozled. I prayer for the next femal that is in worst position then I was. She doesn't belong in the court room. She is either bedazzled by men in suites are intimidated. Screaming at people
doesn't mean you are knowledgeable of the law. God bless Judge Eddie McShan who in two months ended my divorce what Gonzales was not capable do in 4 years because of her bias towards her defendant. "What goes around comes around" is what she said after she said she hated me without listening to the facts and therefore enableing the defendant. She also punished me for dropping my first lawyer who was taking advantage of me and Judge Gonzales kept using it against me throughout the four year trial. Shame on you.

Sits around with the defense attorneys all day, brazenly pro defendant, with a very nasty demeaning attitude. Will belittle your case and your client and pressure you to ask for as little money as possible. Essentially she will try the case for the defendants. How someone like this can be elected a judge is beyond me. Overall she is an aberration to the bench.

Recently assigned to trial part in Sup. Bronx. Pro defendant. Tries to overly pressure Plaintiffs to settle.

Comment #: NY1186
Fair. Tough. Good common sense approach in Criminal Court. Efficient and is able to perform her duties quickly without compromising her duties or the rights of any of the participants. Will listen to her staff, protect them but not afraid to admonish them when necessary.

No nonsense judge who uses common sense.
She cuts through the endless paperwork
and resolves her calendars with lightening speed. She is not easily
intimidated and dispenses fair and
equitable justice.
