Hon. Howard Aison Amsterdam City Court, New York


822. other

Judge Aison treats professional law staff and law enforcement professionals as subordinates and conducts himself inappropriately and often acts downright childish in his treatment of professionals he deals with on a daily basis. "If Judge Aison is not catered to beyond his pampered style he becomes childish and storms off after throwing papers at others." The greater than thou attitude and his demeanor within the public safety building is unacceptable. In his law knowledge and expectations the Judge is certainly adequate if not more knowledgable than most. His expectations within the courtroom are acceptable, his conduct with other professionals outside of the courtroom is deplorable.

Your Honor: It was a pleasure to serve in your court on Tuesday and Wednesday for the DUI case. I learned a lot about the law regarding "driving while intoxicated" and your personal statements made during voir dire and at the end of the trial showed your charisma and passion for what you do. Keep up the great work! Respectfully, Thomas Ross

819. party to case (pro se)

I recently wrote Judge Haddock a letter about the impact she made in the life of my child over 5 years ago. I wanted her to know that because of her decision, my child has thrived despite the abuse and abandonment of his mother. I want everyone to know that Judge Haddock is a judge of strength and wisdom and my son and I are so grateful that she was the judge in our case. I thank God above for her everyday.

very fair judge

I agree with the other post....If you get Comissioner Robert Harrison in a small claims matter, you should say you want to have a judge hear your case and not stipulate to have a Commissioner hear your case (all parties have a right to have a judge hear the case instead of commissioner or pro tem). If you then get Judge Kenji Machida you should use your right to strike one judge for any reason (CCP 170.6 -each side can strike one judge preemptively for any reason), to get a different judge...Whether he is knowledgeable or not is irrelevant, because he uses his knowledge to ignore the law and the facts.

bright yet quick to react / overeact

Hon. Deborah L. Christian Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, California


815. attorney (private practice)

All the other reviews are accurate...this is probably the reason she was transferred from her role as a criminal judge in Pasadena to a traffic judge in downtown L.A.....The way some judges "practice" law is an absolute disgrace..... especially in Southern about well hidden corruption....

814. witness

I accompanied a friend to court. I was his witness. The officer agreed with everything I said and the judge smiled as if she agreed with me and my friend. Then the judge ruled and found me guilty. Outside the officer came up to me and said he felt bad because he thought my friend was not guilty after hearing my side of the story. Needless to say this judge is worthless. She has no other words to say except "guilty." She does not know the meaning of "not guilty" and I feel sorry for anyone who appears in front of her.

Hon. Albert J. Wojcik Superior Court of California, County of Riverside, California


812. courthouse employee

Anyone familiar with Judge Wojcik knows his disregard for the law, his unprofessional demeanor in the courtroom, and his attitude towards those he predetermines to be guilty. I wouldn't want to stand in his courtroom as a defendant for any reason whatsoever, given his heavily slanted record against defendants and unwillingness to allow legal arguments to be presented by the accused. But knowing his propensity for guns, concealed and otherwise, and blatantly disrespectful attitude towards the POTUS, few are willing to challenge him and bring his misbehavior to light.

I watched this judge for a few days dealing with numerous cases and she deals with them all in the same way, she picks a side and then pushes for the side that she thinks is right giving no power to the other side. She is very bright but does not use the law she goes by her opinions not he law.
