Majority of the comments about the DIS-honorable Andrea Plumlee is 100% spot on. After riding the Obama coat tails to office, she has only brought disgrace, and lack of public confidence to the 330th District Family Court. Please bear in mind, Plumlee is not the Court; but a poor steward of the Court. Plumlee demeanor on the bench is a clever rouse to disguise her apparent "incompetence" and blatant, willful disregard of rules and laws. Plumlee also can't decide whether to be a judge or legal advisor/counsel while on the bench. This lack of impartiality and violation of judicial canons not only hinders; but damages the Court's legitimacy before the public. If you would like to find out more about how to restore fair, honest, legitimacy, impartiality, competence, and integrity back into the 330th District Family Court contact friend330th@yahoo.com... Friend of the 330th is looking for testimony of adverse experiences before Plumlee and/or her associate judge Johnese Howard. Affidavits of wrong doings, improprieties on and off the bench, back chamber dealings, bias and/or partial legal advising or counseling, failure to follow governing rules, procedures, and LAWS, case on appeal or adjudicated on appeal including mandamus.

Why is it that Andrea plumlee is allowed to send out invitations to get out the vote on county computers on county time. She has a luncheon and demands attorneys attend and she has it at the juvenile justice courthouse. This is the sort of back door dealing this woman practices, in the courtroom of the people. Please help remove this incompetent woman and replace her on March 4th. We will need to watch her helpers in the primary where she will try to buy votes using Teddy Hawkins who then pays the member of a church and then he gives the money to the preachers. This is how,she thinks she will win!!! We r watching you all!

This Judge should not be on the bench. She is very ignorant and a drama queen.

This Judge has no business drawing a paycheck from the hardworking property tax paying residence of Dallas. Her court and rulings are laden with racial intrigue, Judges from her own Law Book, is either ignorant to Texas Law or does not work to protect the legal rights of citizens. What is happening in her court is shameful and she should not be reelected to make such heavy and heartful decisions on people's lives.

I didn't think it could get worse than Marilea Lewis but Plumlee ties with her. She seems to be too lazy to read the documents before her and is ignorant of the law. Dallas County children and families deserve better.

If Judge Plumlee knows the law, she certainly doesn't follow it. If you are a FATHER in Dallas County and if you think you are going to have a meaningful part in your child's life and your case is in the 330th District Court . THINK AGAIN!!!! IT WAS BAD TO IMPOSSIBLE IN JUDGE HOWARD'S COURT HER ASSOCIATES COURT, BUT DON'T EXPECT PLUMLEE TO CLEAN UP ANY MESS HOWARD HAS MADE. SHE SIMPLY RUBBER STAMPS IT AND MAKES IT WORSE.

If Judge Plumlee knows the law, she certainly doesn't follow it. If you are a father in Dallas County and if you think you are going to have a meaningful part in your child's life and your case is in the 330th District Court . think again it was bad to impossible in judge howards court her associate judge but don't expect plumlee to clean up any mess howard has made. She simply rubber stamps it and makes it worse. I can't even give these women one star. My attorney is aware that I am posting this and asked me not to fill in my name because if it is known who represents me and my case is checked out, he believes that Plumlee will be vindictive to his future clients.

I have been in the 330th and Andrea plumlee is unfair and has disregard for the law. She took my attorney and yelled at him for no reason. She doesn't work on Wednesday's and yet Imjad a case set and waitedm3 hours just to,be told she had to take care of her mother. I checked it out and she was not doing so. She has been married twice to the same man Charles and divorced him twice. She hates men and has no business ruling on family matters when she had a bitter divorce. Help us vote her out. Go to Randall Grubbs for Judge and get involved. You will never get a fair trial in the court as long as she is there.

Very poor judge. Her associate judge, Johnese Howard, is a moron. Both need to be removed.

Please look up the case of Joy Scott and I bet you won't find anything. Why?? Because Plumlee had it sealed for no reason. Ms. Scott was put in jail for not paying her house payment!! Yes.!!! The woman stayed in jail over a weekend. This is Plumeee's pattern that if Her lawyer friends have a case they will always WIN. Poor Ms. Scott was finally brought in on a Monday and paraded in front of all the litigants and then let go. Because Plumlee broke the law, yet she gets away with it. Ms. Scott had to take her case all the way to the Admin Judge just to get Plumlee off her case and sent to Judge Lopez's court. Please help us vote her out. She gives favors only to her black friends. I wish today we could say there is no racism but Plumlee is FULL OF BLACK FRIEND PRIDE. She only does favors for her friends. Like Tom RAilsback and LaDetra Adkins. Look it up. She doesn't even get a rating. I am a mom with a child....

I have seen this Andrea Plumlee in action. She is not a nice person. I don't know why she hates men. She would rather you have a black attorney represent you instead of a white attorney. She also thinks that she is untouchable. She is not. Let's make her term the last term she has. No more hurting families like her partner Lynn Cherry. Let's get servants for our sake that can help families and allow the fairness and integrity back in the 330th. The prior Judges would be appauled at how this court has gone downhill. Andrea Plumlee got reviewed by her peers on the Judicial Poll it is public information, and she was unfavorable. Meaning that attorneys don't even like her or want to go there. Let's get a fresh start and bring back the court to where it was. No matter if you are a democrat or republican it is our duty to vote her out. She is unfavorable.

This judge made me feel very at ease. She was very patient in hearing my case. Although she did not rule in my favor, I might have to agree with her ruling. I appreciate how she handled things and hope she is around a long time.

1276. attorney (private practice)

I have appeared in front of Judge Plumlee and Judge Howard. Both have the appropriate judicial temperament, are patient, correctly apply the law, and both took the time to hear the issues. The "outcomes" was just and right. We all understand emotions are up front and center in family court, but you would never be there if you and the other party could have resolved the issues. So, the question is: to whom should the blame and anger really be directed?

The Honorable Judge Plumlee is a wonderful public servant and fair in her proceedings. I was represented by an attorney but represented myself Pro Se for half of the life of the active case. Judge Plumlee, regarding Pro Se litigants, is patient, kind and has a wonderful demeanor to those who act accordingly; you are in a court room, there are standards and first impression do count; those are on you. I might add that I am the Father in this case; was awarded Managing Conservator of my child and judge Plumlee sustained that ruling several times. These accounts of her being, unfair biased against fathers - are completely unfounded and most likely the result of the common human emotion of anger at the result of being told something you didn't want to hear or further being ordered. One must also take note of the court rules and procedures. If she didn't read something of yours "in your opinion" most likely it is due to - she already familiarized herself with the case; YOU didn't file it correctly or within the rules and procedure of the court or you just don't have a leg to stand on and the best option for you is to defame the person who has been charged by the public to sort out YOUR dirty laundry. All in all Judge Plumlee is a wonderful public servant in the MONSTER that is Dallas County Family Courts. Lastly; its not whats in your personal interest but the best interest of the child. A third party Non Lay person such as Judge Plumlee is far better qualified to sort it out then you; if you could, you wouldn't be before her at the bar now would you.

Hi: My name is Darion Stephens. My uncle is a Public Defender. He was let go because Ms. Plumlee thought it would be better if she let private attorneys be the attorneys. Only attorneys who gave to her campaign fund. There is a reason we need public defenders. There are citizens who have low funds and some who are mentally ill and don't even have a chance at getting a fair trial with this Judge. She has never been family board certifed which means she shouldn't even be a family divorce Judge. You want a lawyer who has gone through all the requirements of cetification. She only got the bench when All the democrates won the county. She needs to be replaced. Please help me and others vote her out on March 4th and early voting starts on Feburary 18th. Please, Please. We need our Public Defenders back. I haven't the money to try to get the relief I need from that court. There is no one worse than this woman. She ranked last in her bar polls which means she is not a good lawyer and doesn't know the law and how to use it.

Judge Plumlee obviously knows the law extremely well. I have witnessed multiple cases in her court and she always conducts herself with decorum and grace. She is always fair and just. Watching her on the bench is like a breath of fresh air from Marilee Lewis and her associate Randall Grubbs. She is always prepared and so respectful of the lawyers, their clients, and their time. She is perfect for this bench.

I cannot believe this woman is allowed to be a judge. She is asking for donations to her campaign on the Dallas county premises. She has been asking for money donations to help her. This is wrong and criminal. She must be stopped. This woman thinks she is above the law. Half of the time the courtroom dark and locked and the clerks don't know where her staff is . This is all on our dollar. Us the real people who work 8 to 5. This Judge deserves a zero rating. She is never there om Tuesdays. She is pandering on county time.

The Honorable Andrea Plumlee is understanding of both law and humanity. She has my highest praise. Compassion and respect are second nature. Your Honor, thank you for your contribution to the American justice system and family law. We are all better for it.

@ A.K. I beg to differ, no one is emotional, angry or blaming as you put it. However everyone has a right to express how they have been treated by Judge Plumlee. You are right no one would be in court if issues are resolved amicably with the other party, but understand that as adults no one has any control on what the other party chooses to do. Therefore for this reason we have a judiciary and a justice system. Now justice the last time I checked means "The quality of being fair and reasonable or just behavior or treatment" However this is not the case with this particular Judge Andrea Plumlee. Instead she is very vindictive toward fathers, does not pay attention to details and facts before her and threatens you off the record. As law abiding citizens who pay taxes that pay Judge Andrea Plumlee's wages we jointly demand and work towards her removal as Judge of 330th come March 2014. Now if she paid you A. K. or TT to write this crap it's pointless because she will be REMOVED!!!!

This is a sick woman believe me. She does not know what she is doing, she is a very mean, rude and ignorant woman. she talks over you and against you in the court dont not to mention belittle you. I'm from another county and had to go testify i was in shock when i acturally saw how this woman acted in the court compared to judges in our county, she is not fair and she thinks she is untouchable because she is a judge but believe me there is someone higher than her that will make it right. This woman needs to be removed she is a terror something has to be done we cannot let someone like this represent the courts. on the overall ratings she gets zero from me, so lets try and get this woman removed.

All I can say is that plumlee is not board certified and that means she has never in her life as a juvenile attorney ever tried a custody case or a jury trial or a property case. She has no experience and we all know she doesn't stdy the current updates on the law based on her rulings. She was ranked second lowest by her peers. Attorneys. She has no regard for the law because she makes it up. Her associate judge,is worse. She could,study forever and never make it. She listen only,to,what plumlee tells,her to. I will give them both a zero.

Zero. This woman needs to be removed. It was miserable for me and my family. She has no knowledge of the law. She is not certified in family law and can't understand a property case and my daughter did not have huge estate. Please help me vote her out on March the 4th. Let's make a change for the better. If Plumlee would just come to work and not have us wait for over an hour because she forgot we were even on the schedule for the morning. I am still supporting my daughter and we still have another hearing in her courtroom. zero

This woman obviously loves family and this is evident in every one of her rulings. Judge Plumlee always does what is just by legal standards, keeps the children in mind, and offers the families the best legal and just solutions for their situations.

2263. witness

She truly implements the law in every decision she makes and gives the appropriate amount of time and respect to each person who walks into the 330th. She truly lives by her campaign promise to ensure that "each case receives the highest degree of justice possible, and each individual is treated with respect and dignity."

This is a sad day to know that a judge who has the power for the young children automatically sides with a mom who has admitted in another court that she is in an abusive situation. Her associate judge removed the child from this home and this judge never heard a word the other parent said and decided before all started that the child should be in the abusive home. Because a child needs his mother. Well, when that child grows up and is either an abuser or in the system because of the abuse I am certain this judge will have no remorse. She does not deserve to be in charge. If she had even pretended to listen and care it would have at least been an easier pill to swallow. She made it completely apparent that she was not help accountable for her decisions. A sad day for the citizens of Dallas. It is already a broke system making decisions for broken families; this judge is not a solution, she is part of the problem. I pray for all who have to go before her. Even if she rules in your favor, it is not about the children. And they are the ones who we must protect.

Unbelieveable, but Plumlee's associate Judge Howard was trying to tag me in my case with sex abuse allegations from another case. Apparently Howard can't keep her facts straight from one case to another. I agree with Peter that something needs to happen. The papers need to know about what is going on here. Unless you happen to be represented by one of the (chosen few) You are in a world of hurt in Andrea Plumlee's court. It is so bad I can't even rate those two women as Judges.

I've been reviewing some of these comments about Judge Plumlee. You need to send your comments to the State Commission on Judicial Conduct. Also Randall Grubbs will be running against Judge Plumlee in the March 2014 primary. Mr. Grubbs could use another 200 signatures, people to put out yard signs, speaking engagements, radio shows, fund raising parties etc. Contact me at declark1@sbcglobal.net with more info about your specific case or if you can help with the election in March.

I agree with everyone who says Andrea Plumlee needs to be voted out. Let's do it. I will ban with anyone to get this woman out. She is downright mean and vicious. She got rid of the public defendant. Now that was a move in the direction. we are entitled to representatation. She did this so she could make have her friends appointed and then have the tax payers pay for representation. There is a fund for these public defenders and she once again is malicious and making a court for her friends only. Cynthia Allen is one of her friends and so is Darlene Darensburg. They too need to be rated as bad attorney.

I have personally seen Andrea Plumlee ask attorneys from her bench to step back in her office and ask them to donate to her campaign, which I believe is an ethics violation. She will be having a thanksgiving lunch and I hope it will be her last one. There she will be asking for donations for her campaign. I am hoping someone will record her and get it on tape to be used for facts to the grievance board for judicial conduct. I really don't understand why she hates men and women with white attorneys, but she does. Help us give her her last day on March 4th, and vote her out.
