Judge McAllister
Yes, sounds very similar to my experience with Judge Nancy McAllister. She was rude, pompous, didn't follow court rules and didn't appear to know the law in regard to what was being discussed. I look forward to voting her out in the next election.

Awful! Demand change of venue
Absolutely awful! She gives less than 10 min to state your case regardless of evidence disputing the allegations. And in those 10 min, she did not listen to any of the statements we made which was obvious when she asked questions that required us to make the same statement again (sorry I can't be specific due to concerns of retaliation by this poor excuse of a judge). She came into the courtroom with a clear bias and only knowing one side of the story....A judge is supposed to ensure fairness so that the parties' legal rights are protected. She could not be bothered with listening to both sides of the story. It's not like she has a busy case load. We arrived 30 min early for our hearing and sat in an empty courtroom. She entered the courtroom 10 min late and had a chip on her shoulder from the get go. The trial lasted less than 25 min and at the end she left...again an empty courtroom. Elections have consequences and this is what you get when an elected official runs unopposed.

Masters Level Social Worker
I was dealing with an renter who was mentally ill and causing havoc in my home. I did what was suggested by an attorney. I drove to the courthouse in Long Beach WA. I was in the hallway when Judge McCalister came to the front desk and gave me legal advice I did not request. Nancy McAllister told me "the Superior Court takes care of cases like mine." I merely said, "OK" since I never asked her for her advice and have no intention of following it. Maureen McCaslin, MSW

The worst attorney you can get
Nancy didn't attempt to contact me and after numerous attempts by me I found out that she was contacting my mom that was trying to put me in jail-long story short I tried to live with my dad and she used the court system to force me to stay with her. Anyways she was telling me that my mom wants me to call her and she told me to call my mom and talk to her then after one meeting she didn't meet until the week before court saying she doesn't even have a plan say she would request 3 days in jail. I then got a new atterney and didn't tell her, my atterney told the court to delay for a month and we came up with a plan that turned out better than I can imagine I'm living with my dad in Montana now and working towards my GED.

Stay away, poor ethics IMO
Well, opinions and experiences can vary. This woman's professionalism did not impress me, in fact I dound it beyond disgusting. The impressions I came away with was one of unbelieveable arrogance, a total lack of ability to feel empathy as an emotion and a desire to achieve aims that were at best of dubious legality. In my opinion whe would have made more substantial and meaningful contributions to making the planet a better place if she had chosen to spend her life working as a hotel maid or some other occupation where interacting with inanimate objects was the primary focus.

Complete failure as representation
I hired her to represent me in a paternity case and she was unresponsive, did not develop a strategy after repeatedly requesting one, lied about what court hearings were about, did nothing to negotiate with the other attorney, disappeared before a hearing that required her input and discussion, and basically did everything she could to damage my case. She also modified her billing to eat up my entire deposit. I am filing a complaint with the ABA.
