Commissioner Hillman is a fair and non-biased Commissioner. Something it seems the Family Court system is lacking at times. He rules by the law, and reads everything submitted to him. He is great at seeing through lies, and artificial testimony that is build around just trying to hurt or cause power and control upon the other party. King County needs more Commissioners like Hillman on the bench in Family Court. My rating would is an 8 instead of a 10 just because he can get a bit cranky sometimes. However having to deal with the people he has to deal with on a daily basis, I completely understand.

I have been in front of many commissioners and Commissioner Hillman ranks near one of the worst. His cavalier and condescending attitude are beneath the position he holds. His ability to grasp complex areas of claw and court history are well below average. His, frankly, well over his head.

Comm Mark Hilman ordered my 3 yrs old daughter to travel out of the united srates to the philippines with her mother for 2 weeks vacation and ignor my pleading and the warning sings of parental child abduction/kidnapping. I have not seen my daughter or here her vioce since march 17th of 2016 when i dropped her off after visitation. I warnned him for over 3 yrs we have been coming to court because she continues to find away to abduct my daughter and he simple ignor me because i am a black men protecting my daughter. Because of his order the TSA could not stop the Abduction and the security in Taipa could not stop the abduction. I droped my daughter off on march 17th 2016 at 4pm, crying and begging the mother of my daughter not to kidnapped my daughter because i no my daughter will not see me again. All because comm mark hilman has ordered my daughter to travel to philippines for a so called vacation which i warnned him is all lies and she is kidnapping my daughter. A reporter contact him to let him know what he has done to me and his response was he has no comment because the case is now criminal. How can we protect our children when comm like mark Hilman are making then venurable to be kidnapped and abducted.

Commissioner Hillman is not motivated by law, but by the own powers of his own beliefs. There does exist patterns of extreme bias against men. Moreso, his biasness increases based on the race of men. He tends to judge at points in the areas of color of self oppions as law and ordinance has nothing to do with selected cases.

He is a worthless commissioner, who not only ruined my life when I was a child by being sexist then and placing With the wrong parent but now having him again as a judge yet again for a close family member and has now screwed her as well with his sexist ways. He needs to be investigated. Absolutely the WORST commissioner in this state!!

Commissioner Hillman is fair, non sexist, and does what's best for the kids. He is very well experienced reading through false DV claims, and figuring out Narcissists.

I should have commented two years ago. However it's taken me this long to come out of shell-shock.
I too contend that this is the worst commissioner, I also agree that he glosses over pertinent facts and acts oblivious to the merits of law.
My daughter now lives with her father whom she not only made clear discloser of sex abuse by him,to authority figures, and others including me. Any "reasonable" person ( i use the term lightly) would not have possibly let it go unheard. Even her art displays red flags and screams in volumes alone. "HELP".
I know that Judge Hillman has been the project coordinator for several years of the King Co DV and maltreatment response team. I believe he still writes the opinions on how the courts use their protocol in DV cases. He is a shame no doubt!!!

I went to court to support a friend and was shocked by how this judge just seemed to gloss over the information, otherwise he would have ruled it a clear case of contempt. Instead, he said he was on the fence about it and after well over a year of the husband disobeying the parenting plan, he has been given months to prove that he can comply, which he still isn't doing. It's the children who are suffering in this situation.

I won in his court. He did not catch anything that my ex stated. Although he ruled in my favor -- he is certainly a jerk and perhaps is truly biased towards men. Haha

This is the worst commissioner in all of Washington. I have been stuck with him two times, and both times I stood no chance right from the beginning. I am a women and I saw him judge against women over and over again before I went up. I saw him arrest a women for a simple bench warrant, saw him give custody to a man who had a severe history of abuse on his ex wife, and I have seen him being rude to multiple female attorneys. If you are female, you stand no chance.

He gave a male who was behind $10,000 in child support a $3,000 temporary reduction over 6 months because he took a lower paying job. The law is clear on what is to happen when someone is underemployed and seeking to get child support reduced. Hillman's job is to follow the law not make exceptions for dead beat dads.

Yes. Commissioner Mark Hillman has and continues perpetrating grave injustices towards the women (and kids) in his courtroom. He's doing tremendous damage and so far has been unchecked by any upper authorities. He needs to be removed from the bench ASAP! I heartily agree with the previous lawyer's comments. Somebody needs to help us reverse all the illogical orders Hillman is enacting. He's ruining people's lives by letting the perpetrators go unpunished (not held accountable for their bad actions at all)!

I and other women (and children who're affected by his extremely poor judgments)have been biased against due to our gender. I have been (unfortunately) in his Kent Family Law courtroom 4 times now and seen how the women (and kids) are victimized further (are penalized more) while the male perpetrators (domestic violence abusers, driving under the influence of alcohol w/kids in their cars, escapees of paying child support or maintenance due to their wives, etc.) are just about totally let off of the charges brought against them. He's dismissed my visual and professional evidences (professional doctors and police reports included)as well as the last CASA findings ordering my abusive husband to attend the domestic violence perpetrator's program.
