Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK1443
Fair. Reasonable. Appropriate demeanor.


Comment #: OK1432
Pro men. Is not educated in serious matters of domestic violence. Refuses to look at the history of a long term case. Continues to stall and drag cases out, putting off critical matters. Tends to side with men that are irresponsible and lying to the court. I have watched her in handling multiple cases. Tends to have favortiism with certain lawyers. Has jeopardized the safety and well being of a clearly at risk teenager and innocent mother due to partiality with father and his lawyer. Now the teenager has been arrested and is in a serious state. She judged against facts in case and kept looking for inexperienced counselors in domestic violence and teen drug addiction to help her make decisions. She needed to recuse herself from this case and continued to make matters worse for the innocent parties.


Comment #: OK1413
This judge should be disrobed and barred from participating in anything having to do with minor children. She injects politics and her own bias into every case. She has never been fair and never will be.


Comment #: OK1367
This judge was told that a child was using drugs. The child had disclosed this to a parent. The other parent argued and she ordered NO DRUG TEST? What kind of person would do this? He has been suspended for drugs from his school, OD'ed 2 times..what more evidence do you want???

Rating:Not Rated
Horrendous judge and shouldn't be allowed in this position. Very one sided and does not look at the big picture. If you get her demand another judge. very biases.


Comment #: OK1304
Will not hear children in the making decisions. Will allow abuse parents to remain in control of the kids, causing them many problems.


Comment #: OK1192
In Oklahoma it all comes down to money. I lost custody of my son due to the fact that I was a stay-at-home mom, because my husband wants me to pay for leaving him. My poor son is being kept from me and my family. It kills me, but it will do irreversible damage to my son. In what world is a good mom ripped from her child? And when the father has been a proven abuser? All because a mom making $11/hour can't beat the money that her ex makes. And myself, my son and my ex are all Canadian. What right do any of them have? They helped that monster continue the pain my son endures. This is just wrong and disgusting on every level!

Well prepared. Knows each cases throughly before taking the bench. Writes well reasoned decisions, comparable to Federal matters. If you lose you know why. Generally, an excellent judge.
