Rating:Not Rated
An awesome judge who has made my life greater.


Comment #: NY2936
She is one of the worst judges. A crual and uneducated blue collar dictator. She tries to protect herself and her own interests to destroy families and children.
I have never seen a judge with a dictator agenda to destroy the core of family justice.
Every dog have a day and judge Knipps day will come.


Comment #: NY672
Being in court is never a win win situation, and I didn't always like how Judge Knipps always made both of us pay for evaluators etc. I felt like it should have been the non-custodial parent's obligation to pay since it was his motion. However, I think she makes decisions squarely, fairly and definitely in the best interest of the children. This is something that many judges, in my experience, don't manage to do properly.
