I watched this judge engage in ex parte communication with the prosecution on the bench. She whispered to the prosecution, while defense counsel was talking to their client, that the prosecution should increase their bail app, which they did, which she then went with. Such blatant partisanship is a disservice to to the criminal justice system; she should be sanctioned.

Judge Fischer was compassionate, caring, and fair. She made me realize what my problem was and helped me get my life in order. Thank you!!

Every defendant is guilty until proven innocent in Judge Fischer's courtroom. She is the absolute worse judge I have ever had the misfortune to appear in front of. She is contemptuous of defense attorneys and makes sure they know it. Even the prosecution is more liberal than she is and that is saying a lot in Nassau County. She has no clue of what being a judge is. She is ignorant and power hungry. She must have cheated her way through law school because I can't think of another way how someone of her intellect became a lawyer.
