Michael Reagan: How I Overcame Child Abuse

Every 10 seconds in the United States, a call is made about a child being abused, but the laws “always seem to be helping the adults,” — a trend Michael Reagan hopes to change.

Note: Michael Reagan is failing to realize that quite often best way to help abused or neglected kids is to help the parents to become better parents. If, for example, a child is “abused or neglected” and that “abuse or neglect” is misunderstood poverty or stress that is due to the parents inability to make enough to pay for adequate food, housing, daycare, what have you, than it is much cheaper in the long run to help the parent provide adequate food, housing or daycare than it is to remove the kid and throw them into foster care or a children’s shelter. It’s also better for the child.

It is really sad Mr Reagan is able to use his adopted fathers fame and notoriety as a springboard to launch his campaign against real parents who are having a hard time, as I do believe that Former President Reagan had a much kinder heart than that, and was a much wiser man who would have at least listened to both sides instead of jumping on the bandwagon of the System Sucks as their national spokesperson simply because he didn’t get enough love and attention while growing up.

This is sadly just another case of the blind leading the blind and preaching misinformation which rallies the stupid to avoid doing the right thing. It’s also people like this who make our fight harder as these are the people that the System Sucks (those who profit from CPS) hide behind as they capture the spotlight while others run their little scam in the shadows.

A Judge’s View of “Best Interests of the Children”

Please be sure to read the editor’s note at the end.

Highlights of a speech by San Diego’s Honorable Lisa Drunk on June 31st

I am honored to appear before you tonight at this meeting of the San Diego County Bar Association. Thank you for inviting me to speak on my views on the best interests of children as judges see them. This is a very important matter as it is essential to our careers as jurists, attorneys, and court service providers.

As an experienced family law judge, I am tasked with upholding the law in my courtroom and serving the best interests of children. This is a difficult job, one to which I must give a great deal of consideration and attention to creating the best possible outcome to the people who really matter, judges and our friends.

When litigants enter my courtroom, they must understand that I am God and the law is what I say it is. If they question this, I will take their children, property, and other privileges away from them. They have no rights, only privileges which I allow them to have. They have no right to trial by jury, no right to due process of law, and no right to anything except to bask in the glow of my presence so long as they do not annoy me.

If one dares annoy me, I will quickly arrange for arrest and imprisonment. This is why I have armed deputies in my courtroom, to silence anybody who dares to annoy me, just as I did to that unruly mother Joanna Slivka who dared speak when I told her to be quiet. I decide who can talk and what they can say. The five days she spent in jail for thinking otherwise is only a down payment on what I’ll do to her if she ever sets foot in my court again.

My dear friends and colleagues Judge Christine Goldsmith and Judge Lorna Alksne have recently done likewise to that nasty man who wrongly believes that the US Constitution is the law of the land and dared challenge them.

In our courts, WE JUDGES ARE THE LAW and people like him should remember that.

We family law judges have all discussed the necessity of arrests and incarceration at length and know full well our roles in handling such annoying people. We are thankful to have the support of law enforcement, including our friends Sheriff Gore and Chief Lansdowne, in such matters.

clearing throat, sipping water

Children are property of the state…

Wild cheers from audience, Judge Lisa Drunk pauses for a moment for quiet

Let me say that again, to be clear.

Children are property of the state, and this is good for the community.

The law clearly establishes that I can do whatever I fancy with children. There is no right to a jury in my court, and as we judges ensure that litigants are intimidated and bankrupt there is no right to appeal. This helps save taxpayers a great deal of money each year, by the way.

This duty to make decisions about children is well-understood by the entire family and juvenile judiciary across the United States. It is exemplified by the outstanding records of my esteemed colleagues Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan. They know that children are in our courts to enrich judges and our friends and have for many years skillfully extracted millions of dollars of profit from the kids appearing in their courtrooms on such ghastly serious charges as treasonous rebellion against school authorities. Kudos to them for their fine efforts!

Hearty applause from the audience plus a few loud cheers

As we judges rightfully demand, lawyers who appear in our courtrooms give campaign contributions to us and are careful to always support our re-elections. My friend, retired Judge Randa Trapp, was ever so right when she asked the lawyers appearing in her courtroom to give a show of hands in support of her re-election. They all supported her fully, and today she strongly supports incumbent judges. We judges here in San Diego are confident that our friends in the San Diego County Bar Association trust us to make the best use of children to ensure maximum profitability of the family law community.

If for some odd reason a short-sighted attorney dares oppose us, he will lose in court and may, if particularly annoying, be quickly arrested and cast into jail as our friends in law enforcement will see to that.

If an attorney supports us, he will be rewarded with ongoing profitable work as we judges endeavor to take as much time as possible to settle any matter before us and to maximize potential for continued conflict. Children appreciate this, I hear their gratitude when I speak with them to explain how we judges help them. They long to help serve justice and know when their parents fight, our whole community benefits.

The practices that I as a judge apply daily benefit the community. There are many, but I will highlight the three most important.

First and foremost, children are the property over which I can ensure parents will war with each other. War between parents is good for the court and community as it ensures the income and job security for court administrative staff, law enforcement judicial security staff, as well as judges and all of my attorney, mediator, and mental health professional friends in the community.

As a judge, it is my first obligation to uphold government power. By stripping children from parents and rewarding them for attacking each other, I can decide how to best advance this goal consistently. The children are grateful as they know I am powerful and want to help them meet their highest potential to enrich the community. They wish to serve me in any way they can and tell me this every time I meet with them.

Secondly, we judges must reward skilled story-telling. It is the foundation upon which conflict is built. Conflict is good for the courts and our friends and is therefore good for the children. We must encourage it by all means. Any parent who blesses us with another accusation of domestic violence or child abuse is particularly worthy of reward as these are the issues we can use to make ourselves known as protectors of women and children, gain ever more votes, and ensure our continued ability to serve our community.

Thirdly, we must avoid clarity in our court orders. Clarity endangers conflict. This is simply unacceptable and unprofitable. Further, clarity in court orders requires more careful thought. I am simply too busy considering how to reward stories and claims without evidence in thousands of cases before me so I can ensure continuing conflict to have time to waste on expressing clear court orders. Also importantly, my attorney friends like to write and argue over their versions of orders to increase their billable hours and profits. As a judge who derives my income and campaign contributions from their work, I want to keep them busy so they keep my campaign support flowing in.

Cheers of “thank you Lisa!” from audience

My SDCBA friends each year send cards with campaign contribution checks to thank me for thoughtfully applying these practices. I want to you all to know that I very much appreciate this and remember carefully who contributes to our community.

I would like to deeply thank all my supporters for their campaign support checks and referrals to my friends. I particularly thank Sheriff Bill Gore, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, and our esteemed friendStephen Doyne who have all done so much for our community. Thank you also to the entire San Diego County Bar Association for yet another solid recommendation for my re-election.

Thank you all for your continued support!

Wild applause, slowly dies down

Next to speak will be my esteemed supervisor, Judge Lorna Alksne, who has taught me so much about being a good judge and who is a fine example for all of us.

Audience applauds quickly, spotlight shifts to black-robed woman walking up to podium

Editor’s Note: We realize that some of our readers have been so traumatized by judges like the fictional Lisa Drunk (based upon the real convicted drunk driver Judge Lisa Schall) that they can see only how real this “speech” seems and might have missed the clues that it is a dark satire. Many of them may have lost their senses of humor along with their children, finances, and health and see only the reality of what the family law courts did to destroy not only their lives, but the lives of their children, too.

While this “speech” is indeed fictional, it includes links to many articles and other sources that illuminate that it is very close to the actual mentality of many officials of the corrupt and abusive judiciary and government of San Diego County, California.

Joanna Slivka, named in the “speech”, is but one of many victims of the abusive San Diego courts. In her case, she was arrested and jailed for five days on the orders of Judge Lisa Schall because she was so emotionally upset about being told she could not tell her side of the story. The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly admonished Schall for abusing her contempt-of-court powers against Slivka. Yet Slivka’s family has suffered far more court-assisted abuse than just this. Possibly the worst of it is that her daughter was reportedly sexually assaulted at a group divorce therapy session at a church that she was ordered by the court to attend. Like some other families, they have been abused by family law courts in multiple California counties as the corruption in family law courts is widespread across California and the entire United States.

San Diego judges are working with each other and their family and friends in law enforcement to attack the growing number of parents who are calling for reform of the courts. Family law courts in San Diego are a form of organized crime that violates US and state laws as well as the human rights of children and parents. Local law enforcement will never, ever protect the children and parents of San Diego from the ongoing violation of law and human rights by these judges. That’s because they are in the pocket of the judiciary, exchanging favors with each other to quash political dissent in the region.

Most parents are unable to mount an appeal when their children and they are harmed by the frequent abuses in these courts. Even if they are able to obtain the funds to appeal, the judges have often stacked the deck by wrongly manipulating the admission of evidence and testimony to create a flawed court record that supports their prejudiced opinions. Some even go so far as to order clerks and court reporters to alter court records and transcripts. Further, records are often “lost” or “misplaced” as necessary to support a judge’s opinions. The court records in San Diego cannot be trusted, just as the judges cannot be trusted. In such a climate of corruption, appeals are likely to often be ineffective because the court records are relied upon for appeal.

The San Diego courts and law enforcement will not do their jobs competently or fairly because of the family connections and revolving door between the courts, district attorney, and senior law enforcement positions in the county. DA Bonnie Dumanis is buddies with City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, a former judge, who is married to family law Judge Christine Goldsmith. Sheriff Bill Gore, Judge Lorna Alksne, the County Board of Supervisors, and many others are connected in this web of corruption and abuse.

Many of the judges and law enforcement officials involved deserve prosecution and imprisonment. Instead, the nepotism and corruption in the county provide them with aid in politically persecuting their growing numbers of enemies composed in part of many parents who are fed up with the abuses and injustices being inflicted upon their children and their families.

Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony and the Rape of American Justice

Booklist Mini-review

A take-no-prisoners condemnation of psychiatric experts being waved into the witness box, this account trashes psychiatry in general as a quack profession. Hagen (a psychology professor) assails most of the diagnostic tools of the field in her text, which roams among court cases whose outcome hinged on the testimony of mental-health experts. Her fundamental contention is that psychiatry is a junk science whose theories when extended to matters of legal culpability go against common sense. Indeed, Hagen assumes the posture of that legendary legalism, the “reasonable person,” and her prose is peppered with exclamations and rhetorical questions like “Who could believe that?” which might annoy as many readers as it might convince about whatever points are in question. Among them are such topically current items as battered-wife syndrome, recovered memory claims, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and urban psychosis claims. The average person could easily encounter in divorce and child custody litigation the situations Hagen vigorously complains of, so her energetic attack could gain considerable attention.Gilbert Taylor

Guess what group is among top of those showing contempt of court?

Family Law Judges!

Family law courts in the United States are a disgusting and abusive mess. While we can’t blame it all on the judges as many problems are caused by lying litigants, the judges are ultimately responsible for most of the problems. They should be upholding the law, ensuring that people’s rights are not violated, and requiring reasonable proof of allegations before they are acted upon. But in the United States today, that’s not the function of family law judges.

Family Law Judges Rubber-Stamp Civil Rights Abuses

Today’s family law judges are generally rubber stamps for civil rights abuses. It is routine for due process to be violated. Unequal protection by the law is the norm. The judges generally think this is all OK because family law courts aren’t criminal courts.

Judges complain they don’t have enough time to handle the numerous cases they have. They complain about budget cuts. They complain about needless litigation. Whose fault is all of that? They should look themselves in their mirrors as they have created the problems that have lead to the family law courts being overwhelmed with destructive litigation.

Family Law Courts Reward Criminals, Punish Victims

For starters, their failure to punish perjury results in massive increases in court hearings. It also results in far more complicated cases in which innocent parties who are being truthful are abused by lying litigants with the assistance of incompetent judges. And all of this adds up to spiraling legal costs which often don’t end until after all of the marital assets are depleted.

The judges who don’t punish perjury are often the same incompetent judges who think they can tell the truth without reading court filings and without strong evidentiary standards. Such judges are enablers and co-conspirators of government abuse against honest people. They may argue that they “don’t have time to punish perjury”, but their arguments are invalid. Failure to punish perjury guarantees there will be a lot more of it and that injustices, countless unwarranted court hearings, and abuse of innocent children and parents will be the norm. Failure to punish perjury means the load on the family court system is higher than it would have been if perjury was punished all the way along.

Because incompetent judges reward perjury, dishonest litigants quickly learn that whenever they are unhappy, all they have to do is make up a new set of lies and tell it to the judge who, in his or her “exercising extreme caution” will likely violate the US Constitution, throw due process out the window, and strip those falsely accused by family court liars of their rights.

Typical Family Law Abuses Include “Kick Out” Orders

The victims often don’t even know destruction is coming until after they are served with papers kicking them out of their homes and banning them from seeing their children. Their “due process” consists of being persecuted and severely harmed prior to a chance to defend themselves from false accusations, often months and sometimes years later. And those are the ones who can afford attorneys — many others can’t and have their civil rights totally trampled as the lying ex, her or his attorney, and the incompetent judge skewer people who are already badly harmed and weakened by severe financial and psychological damage caused by the aggression, dishonesty, and lawlessness shown towards them.

Courts Ban Parents From Seeing Children Without Due Process

What rights do people lose because of incompetent judges? They usually lose their access to their children and most of their income for “child support” payments calculated with zero custody time based upon false accusations. Add to those falsely obtained child support payments the horrendously expensive supervised visitations that can cost more than a person makes per month, often at $30 to $100 (or more!) per hour, to be watched like a hawk by strangers while they are with their children. This can last for months or years, bankrupting these victims and eventually meaning they can no longer afford to see their children. Then the courts are likely to rule that they will continue to have zero custody because they didn’t care enough to see their children!

Courts Encourage Financial Victimization by Aggressor Spouses

It’s also common to be kicked out of one’s home with no advance notice. As a result, one may lose all of his or her property for months or years or forever. When this is brought up in court, the judges whine about how they can’t talk about property issues until the end of the divorce case. By then, likely years later, much or all of the property will have been lost, destroyed, sold, and stolen — hmm, it was all already stolen with help of the court — stolen yet again. All of this can’t really be proven because the liar who requested the court to abuse his or her ex didn’t document what the property was, the victim didn’t have a chance to do so, either, and the court will seldom if ever require such documentation and seldom if ever gets neutral third parties to create it. Even if they did, they would provide ample time for the liar to make property disappear prior to a neutral third party showing up to photograph or videotape the property.

Further compounding the damage, the debt on the home one can no longer enter or approach and property which one can no longer have is often ordered to be paid for by the victim of family law courts. The lying ex will be living in it, possibly with the person with whom he or she had an affair. But the victim will be paying for 50% or more of it, sometimes even 100%.

How to Report Bad Family Law Judges

None of this is going to change unless the courts and specifically the judges are held accountable for their incompetent and abusive actions.

How are we, the victims of family law courts, supposed to hold judges accountable?

Generally speaking, except for extreme abuses, it does not appear that state judicial boards take most complaints seriously. However, if they receive massive quantities of detailed complaints about a judge, perhaps they will take note.

You can fill out surveys and post comments about judges across the US at Courthouse Forum.

You can find similarly abused parties in your area and protest the court. Picket it. Be sure to put the name of the abusive judge on big signs when you picket the courthouse. Although death threats may seem appropriate, don’t use them because you might end up with local law enforcement causing even more trouble for you.

Contact local media and explain to them how abusive and irresponsible a judge is being. You might actually get an article written about it, especially if there are many people being abused by the judge. For example, see the Sacramento News & Review article Down by law: Beaten by the system, four fearless Sacramentans coulda been contenders.

Campaign Against Bad Family Law Judges

Most judges at some point have to run for re-election. You can campaign against them. Rally together with people who have been abused to hold them accountable and ensure they are not re-elected. Expose their dirty laundry during the election. Even if it does not affect that particular election, if enough of this is done consistently, it will probably result in candidates in future elections focusing on compliance with US law, punishment of perjury and contempt of court, and use of evidentiary standards of at least “clear and convincing evidence” before people’s rights are stripped away.

It’s up to those abused by the courts to force change. That’s because politicians don’t care and most people have no clue how evil the family law courts in this country have become. They won’t find out until they end up in them, and that’s too late to do much to force change as then they are in the middle of a war that will likely destroy their lives.

FROM THE ROTH SHOW

Kids are being yanked from homes – Money is made and families are lost

By admin, on August 8th, 2013

This week on my weekly crime segment I interviewed the Activists behind www.corruptct.com.  They have asked to remain anonymous due to the evil they confront on a regular basis.   Using only first names they exposed what seems to be a growing and real conspiracy to yank kids from good homes without due process and common sense.  Cases of absurd withdrawals of children from perfectly good homes are growing through out the country, rendering it unsafe to even raise your kids in a normal manner.  Parents be very concerned.  Kids are now widgets to be used to make money.

The Corrupt CT activists shared the unbelievable and ongoing story of Jamaal Jacob who had his young daughter apprehended by DCF (Department of children and families)  in response to a call.  Someone reported seeing a bruise on her head.  (I was asked to keep her name and age out of the article since this is a case in progress)

I talked with Jamaal Jacob who said there were other kids in the house and the bruise on his daughter’s forehead was simply from Childs play and rough housing between the children.  It wasn’t serious enough to even go to the Doctor.   The daughter was taken  by DCF regardless of what the Dad said happened.  She has been forced to stay in the system, away from her home since November 2012.

It gets worse

Jamaal Jacob and his fiancée (who was not in the home at the time) were both criminally charged with ‘Risk of injury to a minor’ and are in the middle of a trial.  One court date has already occurred and the trial is continuing.  They both face 10 years in prison if convicted.  Jamaal’s daughter has not been allowed home since November 2012.  When interviewed by DCF the daughter also said it was Childs play and her Dad had not hit her.

Jamaal was denied due process, lied to repeatedly and is now facing 10 years in prison if convicted.  All this because his young-school age daughter was seen with one bruise on her forehead.  I kept looking for what else could possibly be in this story to make DCF act as literal kidnappers and ignore the simple and seemingly honest explanation from the Dad and the Daughter.  “Does Jamaal have a criminal record or abuse background in anyway?”  NO.  “Have there been other noted bruises noticed on his daughters body?” NO.  “Is there money involved here?”  YES.

The Corrupt CT team told me of Title 5 funding available to the states from the Feds given up for each child in the system.  DCF gets money peppered all over their ‘child seeking’ business.

I know as a ‘Foster adopt’ parent myself, that the state pays money per month to assist with health care, mental health needs and expenses.  This is appropriate and having walked through the system with my Husband to adopt our kids many DCF workers and Foster families operate with compassion, common sense and inside the law.

Things are very different now  – more money and more corruption

Corrupt CT said that cases involving kids being yanked from families and stuck in the system for a year or two are becoming much more common.  These cases are started and financed by Title 5 funding for a simple call in reporting a bruise.  No one wants a kid stuck in an abusive home of any kind, but we are talking about a system now that is ignoring due process,  ignoring common sense and ignoring reasonable testimony .  I call this a national conspiracy to make money on children and destroy the rights of families.

I shared with them story after story of bruises and injuries I got as a kid while playing hard.  I went to school with occasional bruises and a sprained ankle or two.  My parents weren’t arrested and I wasn’t yanked from our home.  For that matter, I have a 10-year-old boy who also plays hard, tearing around the forest that we live in.  I know he has had a few bruises and scratches.  Am I to be arrested now and my boy yanked from my home?   The way things are going now is that good parents should be scared.  Spies are everywhere and Teachers, Counselors; authorities are intimidated to report literally everything.  The tragic part is that the system the kids are being thrown into are often times the real abusers.

Kids are a money making commodity

Corrupt CT Judge Ciavarella was sentenced to 28 years for selling kids to the Prison System.    Unbelievable as it is he unjustly sentenced over 5,000 young men and women to maximum prison sentences, making big bucks.  He received millions of dollars for giving these long prison sentences.   The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has now overturned 4,000 of these convictions.

Pathetically,  Judge Ciavarella’s attorney asked for reasonable sentencing, saying that the ‘media coverage’ punished the Judge enough.  He then said he would be forever thought of as the ‘Kids for Cash’ judge.  I guess we are to feel sorry for him now. Oh baby…how unfair…how cruel and inconvenient for his career.  I simply hope that he enjoys being someone else’s girlfriend in prison.

The FBI recently rescued 105 children from a national Sex Trafficking ring at a Saudi Compound in VA.    The Blaze and other news sources covered this in depth and linked this Sex network to over 76 cities.  This is just one of the networks broken up.  There were also 12 MS-13 gang members arrested and involved with child sex trafficking.

Kids used to be our protected treasures, now they are inventory to sell

There are many tentacles to this very real conspiracy of using our kids to make money.  The Child Protection groups, who use lots of various initials — is making big money all through their system to yank kids out of perfectly good homes and keep them flowing through the system.  Damn families – Damn the truth and make money.

Apparently, at least one Judge (no doubt there are more who haven’t been caught yet) was making millions of dollars in bribes for sending kids off to maximum prison sentences.

Finally, Sex trafficking rings are growing and deadly all through  our country.  Thankfully the FBI recently rescued 105 children from the Sex Trafficking ring in VA, but there are many more and dangers everywhere.  Money is to be made on ‘children’ by the Government, DCF, Sex Trafficking rings, Judges, Illegal aliens- MS-13 Gang.

Stealing children is a nation wide concern, how do WE stop it? What happened to the rights of parents, why is this agency immune to our civil and constitutional rights? WE the people need to speak out, stop allowing this agency DCF,CPS,DCYS,DCFS, any department name that is after our children. The child protection agencies are not out to “protect” children they are stealing them, silence has given them the power to continue to steal them. Praying for all the children that have been stolen from their families and fighting for each and every one to bring them home.

50/50 time with our god given children is hard to object to unless you hate children

Illinois Fathers · 425 like this
  • FROM: Todd Bottom

    I’ve read on several pages and sites (from both men and women) opinions about “50/50” parenting. Often, but not always, its dads contending that they should get 50% of the time with their children and 50% should go to the mother. Dads argue that it’s their right and that the children benefit from having him in their lives; moms argue that it’s disruptive to the (often young) child’s life, and often that the dad is not a good parent.

    As a divorced non-custodial father with an M.A. in psychology (3 months away from completing my Ph.D.), I’m compelled to weigh in. I’ve been researching the outcomes of divorced and non-custodial fathers for several years, and my dissertation is a 2-year project in the making in which I’m assessing the parenting experiences and psychological well-being of fathers. My dissertation bibliography alone includes over 200 peer-reviewed research articles.

    Here…in no uncertain terms…is why we CANNOT say that 50/50 parenting does not work. Keep in mind that I’m not saying it DOES work. I’m saying that no one has shown that it DOES NOT work. There is a huge difference.

    Quite simply, there is no evidence showing that 50/50 parenting is not in the child’s best interest or outcomes. Some people have written such claims, but it’s all theoretical. Sure, both sides of the argument may sound good and logical based on personal experience or what you’ve heard and read from others. But most such claims come from people who are not trained to make that assessment. They are disillusioned parents, armature bloggers, life coaches, media personalities, or professionals outside of research and psychology (i.e. social workers, attorneys, politicians, etc.).

    A very limited number of trained researchers and those with clinical degrees may claim that 50/50 parenting is not best for children’s outcomes. However, such claims are based on: 1) case studies of individual experiences, or 2) on the situations of several clients over several years. These are biased approaches for at least two reasons. First, individuals in case studies are intentionally selected to assess the extreme ends of an issue…no one wants to study Average Joe. Second, clients of clinical psychologists are also typically at the end of the spectrum which indicates that there are more issues at hand than custody.

    Here’s why no credible evidence exists to show that 50/50 parenting won’t work:

    1) There is an extreme lack of cases to study. This type of custody/parenting is nearly non-existent, which makes it hard to assess.

    2) This type of custody rarely exists because fathers are not given the opportunity to have it because: 1) they do not ask for it, 2) the mother objects, or 3) the courts do not favor it.

    3) Even if there were enough such families to locate, recruit, follow, and empirically assess 200+ of them (enough to start generalizing to the general population), it would take 30 or more years to do so. It is extremely time consuming and expensive to track children from 50/50 homes from their early childhood until mid-life to know whether or not 50/50 affected their adult outcomes. (My professional guess is that it would cost more than $5M to study this over a 30-year period.)

    4) Even if – after 30 years of tracking and assessing these children of divorce – it would be extremely difficult to show that the 50/50 arrangement was the cause of any positive or negative outcome in adulthood. Over that much time, too many other factors could also contribute to long-term outcomes…including race, socio-economic status, parents’ levels of education, geographic location, and many other variables.

    So…My response to any person who tells me that 50/50 is not in children’s best interest (and my challenge to those of you who believe it is) is that no evidence supports your opinion. Until you can show me with empirical evidence based on sound research assessed over the lifetime of enough children to generalize to the population, I will continue to believe that 50/50 IS in the best interest of children. If you have any evidence to support your own opinion or to contradict my professional one, please let me know.

She has mental problems!
★☆☆☆☆
I am not surprised to see such negative reviews about her. When I met
her, she was so mean and so demanding. I have never met anyone who is
just as terrible as this woman. She didn’t help much with my case, she
just wanted to take my money for doing nothing.
If you need a lawyer who cares about your problems and would do
everything they can to help you, then that woman is not the one for
you. She’s nothing but lazy and miserable.
Do not hire her.

I have to agree with all the negative reviews. This office takes more
time to handle a case then needed. My divorce case was a simple cut
and dry case yet took over 6 months to close. The office never kept me
updated on court dates or the status of my case at any time… the
only reason i found out about my final court day less than a week
before the date was because I called the office to find out what was
going on. This office is so quick to bill you but can’t do their job
of keeping their clients updated. My final court date the hearing was
quick yet I waited in the hallway while Judy did other personal work
on other cases before we went downstairs to get my final paperwork…I
waited in the hallway for almost an hour and was charged for her time
working on other cases! If you have any common sense you will not use
this office for any legal needs!!! For the money this office charges
they should do a better job of keeping their clients updated and doing
their cases in a timely fashion. If your personal life interrupts with
cases than don’t take on cases you can’t handle or don’t bill you
clients for your personal time!

Get a real Divorce Atty
★☆☆☆☆
Do not hire Judy Goldstein you may as well attempt a pro bono for the
fact that she is not efficient and that is a compliment. I would
stress to anyone, the first impression she portrays like she is a
professional and until you deal with her it is like the devil herself.
On 2 occassions she missed court dates and had the nerve to bill and
then carried the case into nearly two years. Didn’t return phone calls
although fast to submit billings. I was later fortunate to have her
removed. She did not work in my best interest at all!

Do Not Hire Judy
★☆☆☆☆
I would strongly suggest you do not hire Judy Goldstein. I hired her
to represent me in a divorce. Her inability to remember key data
proved very expensive to me. After spending thousands of dollars I
severed my relationship with Judy yet still feel betrayed by her. Her
billing practices border on fraud. She will not help you.

You found her that good? Really?
★☆☆☆☆
While it is possible… doesn’t it seem odd that all these people
would have years and years experience with a family law attorney? How
many divorces did they have? Or are these just attempts to counter the
reality?
Our experience is one of disregard, lack of respect of others time,
and a disintinct inability to deal with matters in a timely fashion.
