What others have said about Hon. Martha K. Kilgore


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK350
I believe this judge favors her own gender, whether it be the complainant or the respondent. Attorneys and social workers like her, but most defendants don't. I still think that she is a good judge to have, and she has always been fair in my dealings with her.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK196
Judge Kilgore does primary family law cases and juvenile/deprived cases. She is a very good judge but has been accused of being against fathers (the Divorce Dads against Martha Kilgore put up posters against her last election), but while she may award custody to mothers more than fathers, this is a bad rap because she doesn't do so due to bias. She really does have an emormous amount of patience with parties and attorneys. Great judge overall.
