Irvine >Galindo Miriam
I was in the same experience and found myself at the mercy of a vindictive husband and the courts. Fortunately, I was able to be evaluated by Dr. Miriam Galindo. I found her to be fair and caring. She did a very thorough report and as a result, my name and reputation was cleared, and I have had custody of my beautiful children for 4 years now. We are celebrating the oldest graduation from high school in one month and acceptance into university. I couldn't be more grateful to her and the work she did on behalf of our family.

As parent Gary Treistman of Ulster County, New York who recently filed a civil rights suit against New York says, “Losing access to my children for no crime or proven allegations is a violation of my civil rights and my children’s civil rights.” Treistman continues, “I’ve not been convicted of any crime or any wrongdoing, yet a civil court is punishing me and my children more harshly than a criminal court could for most any crime based entirely on hearsay and unsupported accusations.” Treistman knows he has an uphill battle but like so many other parents seeking civil rights protections in divorce he has no other recourse. Treistman is hoping that the Federal Courts will uphold his child’s civil rights to due process and that Title 42 laws will allow him to seek retribution from New York State for taking his children away for years without due process or substantive cause.
As M says, a mother from New York who recently lost her children for no logical reason, “removing my child is the greatest punishment a court could impose yet due process is ignored and I have nowhere to appeal.” As the primary care giver for her young child M was shocked when a Judge made the snap decision to temporarily remove her daughter from custody based on vague and unproven allegations. In M’s case, like so many others in New York and elsewhere the Judge imposed an extra layer of cruelty by forcing the former stay-at-home mom to have her visits supervised. But with ‘visitation’ costing over $200 an hour and visits limited to only a few hours M finds it impossible to maintain a relationship with her young child and her child is under tremendous psychological stress from the situation.
After thirty appearances in Family Court that have led nowhere M decided to file suit in Federal Court for violation of her constitutional rights to due process and parental rights to protect her child. As M states, “Legal Guardians, custody evaluators and attorneys have tremendous unchecked power in New York without the protections of due process we are led to believe we have as Americans.” One baseless allegation to an irritated Judge from a connected attorney can lead to life-shattering decisions that are near impossible to change. With no jury or effective supervision of the courtroom behavior of judges or custody evaluators recommending such harsh punishments families have no guarantees of due process. Once the tables are turned against a parent and child by a Judge, legal guardians or custody evaluators there are no checks and balances ensuring the integrity of the cruel and unusual punishments that family courts can decree.
Though M is realistic about Federal Courts jurisdiction she wants change in the system as much as she wants relief from the pain of being separated from her child. “It’s my hope that this federal complaint will protect parents from their right to fair and speedy trial and raise awareness of the cruel punishments parents face without due process in cases where there are no signs of abuse.” It’s near impossible for children and parents who are banned from each other to contain their emotions in terse, supervised meetings yet New York officials notate every remark, touch, tear and comment and tend to use emotion against the banned parent. M hopes her appeal for due process for both her and her daughter will force New York State to look at evidence and not base their decision on hearsay. After thirty appearances in family and supreme court M has little hope to regaining a normal relationship with her child.
My tip..This is what the Galindos do ...they hurt children.This review is not written on behalf of the Galindos. This is an article to show that we are not alone.This corruption is everywhere.It is a violation of your civil rights to have your parental rights removed unjustly
The positive reviews are astroturf. Join the real grass roots efforts with the other victims and tell your story at stopmiriamgalindo at google. Anonymity respected. End the destruction of families for profit. Ms Galindo is the tip of an iceberg - a system that generates family conflict to make money. Help us melt it down.
She is a fraud. Who works the cases to
her advantage. Her husband/partner is no better. The only people that have positive things to say regarding her are the ones who aren't footing the bill or, having their name slandered. She works not for the child but to drain the parent with an income.
She doesn't answer phones, return calls, or letter mail. She lies to you and likes to turn around what you have siad to her advantage. She doens't stay in the scope of her investigation. Do not use this investigator!
Outstanding! If you feel that you have entered a process of legal review and orders that simply do not hear the real issues and are frustrated with trying to make sense of the common sense process-The Galindo and Associates are the resource you need to get your case on track. This group is non-bias, honest and has every intention of making the process make sense and get results. I would highly recommend the coparenting services, 730 review orders-limited or extensive and know in your heart that if children are involved, they will be treated with care, compassion and their respect will be restored. I urge you to seek relief from these professionals if you are feeling frustrated or defeated by the need for a clear, fair and judicially sound review and support system.
Upon reading the other statements about this professional, I have to agree. She would rather see you sacrificed than do her job. The experience I had was that she returns calls at her leisure. I decided to pick another person. I actually know someone who had a better experience with her husband who is in same practice. I believe if you decide Galindo & Assoc. proceed with much caution. Also, I read Elizabeth post. I'm not sure who you have for attorney, but want you to know it is not constitutional for a civil court to order any citizen to go to a private party and pay money for services. Why would we put decisions in hands of party we don't choose? There is no statute or law that supports the ability to order persons to leave the court of law and pay an outside party to make decision. And, shouldn't we be asking what are Galindo's qualifications to be "appointed" by a court. There is no process for this "appointment". There is mediation department and that is free. Not sure what is your situation, but recommend if you have to go to Galindo, don't sign any authorization with her to release your information, this may hopeful prevent her from doing something to harm your case. She should only communicate with court through testimony. She is not able to talk to anyone about your information without release. When I read on here about her actions with other, I think I could help someone avoid pitfalls. I think sometime we react without thinking when court tells you to do something, this is civil law, not criminal. Court can't order these things.
The other negative reviews mirror my experience exactly. The positive reviews read like resume fodder and I suspect were placed by the subject herself. If you have experience with her and want to join with other victims organizing to have her license revoked - contact us using google mail at stopmiriamgalindo. Help us prevent other families from becoming victims.
Doesn't look good to me. We were ordered to contact Dr. Galindo by the court for counseling. I called and left a voicemail, and she called back saying she had no room for us. That was months ago. I got a call from my attorney a week ago saying that I need to call Dr. Galindo. I said that I had, and she had no room for us. My attorney's office said, "Well she called us and said you need to contact her and make an appointment." I called immediately and left a voicemail. I called two more times with my name/contact info and also got the voicemail. She has not called me back. If this is the way she chooses to conduct herself, it says a lot about honesty and integrity, something a "Dr" should have. My experience so far is that anybody associated with the court system is incompetent. We pay our taxes for their salaries, entrusting them to make very important decisions in our lives, and they just take it for granted and get lazy. Many of them aren't very bright either, this being another scary prospect that influences court cases. Equality4Free is correct about the "respect/highly thought of" about these individuals. It means essentially nothing. The court deems them this way, but this is from the court and their colleagues! I would like to leave zero stars, also. Another thing that many aren't aware of is that these therapists call themselves "doctors", misleading people into thinking that they are medical doctors. Psychologists are NOT medical doctors. They cannot prescribe or administer medication like a psychiatrist (who IS a medical doctor) or a nurse (administer) or nurse practitioner. They exploit this gray area on their clients, when in fact they like to play "armchair psychiatry." Too many of them get their doctorate online by these mills that set up shop and will give a degree to almost anyone who is willing to pay the big bucks for it. However, it is the public that pays the highest price.
Perception is not reality.
I wish I could say no stars, but had to give at least one. It's amazing that certain people in these professional communities spread around the idea that other licensed individuals have such a high respect/regard in a particular circle.
When a person is continually held out to be "respected" and "highly thought of " by colleagues, that is worth nothing really. Certain groups keep their status by touting their reputations throughout their circles and it keeps the perception going. So, if you are in the right circle, then you'll get what you need, but if not, look out.
If your choice of her has anything to do with the court system, choose someone else. She will take the path of least resistance whether it is in the best interest of those involved or not. She will do what is best for her.
At least that is my experience. She will tell you one thing when she's talking to you, but drop the ball afterward. She is also not thorough, as she didn't read any of the information, but instead chose to believe whatever was best for her after the fact. She made a mess of things.
I agree with the other person on this page that said he will regret it for the rest of his life.
Fair, Professional, Listens to Children. Dr. Galindo was extremely fair and really did her homework on the situation. She listened to the child and helped guide the child into understanding the situation and making the right decision for him/her. She also listened and was extremely attentive to all parties involved. If accusations were made towards the other party she would research before accusing. I would highly recommend her.
