What others have said about Hon. Keith R. Raines


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OR161
Keith Raines is not an impartial judge and it horrified me to see that he was recently re-elected. Power trips, and a thorough lack of impartiality (he's pro-father no matter what that father has done, no matter the expert witnesses that testify to the fact -- likely due to his own bloody divorce) do not belong on the bench. Too many innocent lives pass through his courtroom for him to go, apparently, without judicial review.


Comment #: OR141
Always late, and always rude. Appears to run his courtroom without regard to Oregon law. It becomes obvious that private discussions have gone on that exclude a defendant's attorney. The general impression is that of an out-of-control bully.


Comment #: OR117
Condescending, arrogant, highly inappropriate comments to female petitioner, biased toward father


Comment #: OR98
extremely paternalistic,misogynistic, and biased toward father.
