He is a horable person and will not help children. He will act as if no proof was provided when proof is right in his face. He does not care and will not do his job what so ever.

[Redacted by Ed.]
Pathological egoist and demeans others by saying he is "a fact finder" and much more thorough than anyone else. Despite any evidence, he accused a victim of domestic violence as being a perpetrator too! Apparently motivated to impress everyone with his familiarity with case law and suggested the "newest commissioner" may have come to a decision he would not have.
His arrogance and hubris has resulted in ongoing potential for harm to a child.
He communicates as though he is the smartest person in the room and demeans others including counsel. As the parent of someone accused of being a covert violent person by him without a modicum of evidence, I was enraged by his abuse of power. I pray nothing further happens to my grandchild at the hands of an addict before justice is actually done. He judged against a Hispanic mother while refusing to amend the parenting plan of two Caucasian parents!
