Extraordinary gifts of patience balanced by scholarship. Not sure if a settlement would have been reached without her.

I had a class action with Judge Beeler. She's hard working, organized, smart, fair, and friendly.

Have had one case with her which is still ongoing. So far I am very impressed. Biggest thing for me is I trust her to exercise her intellect and common sense for an appropriate result. She seems very balanced, and she listens.

Judge Beeler is a model judge who has an uncanny ability to find common ground between parties. She is sharp, gracious, and treats everyone in her court with respect. I have seen her work through lunch and past court hours without a word of complaint. The people in this district have reason to be proud.

I have nothing but respect for Judge Beeler. She is relatively new to the bench here in the N.D. Cal., but she is already a favorite amongst many practitioners for her ability to find solutions for complex problems and her good nature.
