Judge Michelle Dowler of Albuquerque, NM; pompous loser


The state of New Mexico presented Michelle Castillo Dowler with a law license in 1998 after she graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law.


Gov. Susana Martinez was duped into appointing Michelle as Bernalillo County Metropolitan Judge in 2013. Michelle didn’t get the appointment because she was the most qualified attorney in the greater Albuquerque area. She received it because she had proved to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


FYI: Michelle has had her significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for the twenty-two (22) years since graduating from the University of New Mexico School of Law. Apparently, no self-respecting law firm in the greater Albuquerque area was about to offer he a good paying job.


During the 2018 judicial evaluation process, Michelle received the following ratings by her peers in the legal community.

  • Failed to treat participants in her court equally
  • Conducted herself in an arrogant manner
  • Failed to demonstrate an appropriate demeanor on the bench


Additionally, court staff rated Michelle as follows:

  • Rated her low in respecting court employees regardless of position
  • Failed to behave in a manner encouraging respect for the courts

Unfortunately, for the good folks residing in the greater Albuquerque area, this is exactly what you can expect when someone is appointed because they are a trusted political hack.


As we speak (ca. April 2020), Michelle continues to sit as a Bernalillo County Metropolitan Judge in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
