What others have said about Hon. Janice Jimenez


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: PA174
Completely biased judge who had ex parte communications with police prior to traffic ticket trial. Refused to look at evidence and I could tell her mind was made up before I walked into the courtroom.
I didn't bother to appeal - it was a turn signal violation, but a 3-judge arbitration panel and my insurance company agreed with me (unanimously), when the other driver tried to sue Geico: The police report was useless because the cop failed to question me, the judge's ruling was arbitrary and capricious, (and, apparently, meaningless), the witnesses were lying, and the other driver was at fault, not me.
Meanwhile, she is not qualified to be a judge. While being a lawyer is not a prerequisite to being a magistrate judge in Pennsylvania, it helps to have some qualifications...in something....
Her claim to fame was a college education at Millersville, which she obtained for free while working as a campus cop.
I was not impressed.
