Divorce Journalist Interviewed SFLG’s Debra Schoenberg About Why High Net-Worth Individuals Retain a Private Judge

Request a Consultation

Divorce Journalist Ilyssa Panitz interviewed SFLG’s Debra Schoenberg about why celebrities and other high net-worth individuals would retain a private judge in a custody dispute.

Hollywood A-listers Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie remain embroiled in a highly contentious custody battle for five of their six minor children. Now their fight is focused on the impartiality of a private judge. SFLG’s Debra Schoenberg offered legal insight to Authority Magazine.

“There are several compelling reasons to engage a private judge for a family law case. The most common, particularly for couples involved in high-profile or high-asset divorces, is that choosing an experienced private judge can help keep many personal and financial details of the divorce out of the public record. Although we tend to hear about private judges, mostly in the rich and famous divorce cases, you don’t have to be a movie star to go this route. Technically, anyone can hire a private judge for their family law case, but there are many factors to consider in practice.”
