You’ve probably heard of the famous Judge Lynn Toler. If not, she is an American Lawyer, judge, and television arbitrator. She is widely known for her outstanding role in the longest-running courtroom television series, Divorce Court.
Before she became a television star, Toler served as the only Municipal judge in Cleveland Heights for eight years after working as a civil attorney in cases involving misdemeanor crimes, traffic, and small claims civil cases. Additionally, she served as a fair, competent, and caring arbitrator judge for the Divorce Court series from September 2006 to March 2020. Toler has lived in Mesa, Arizona, for several years, and she said in an interview that she loves the town because she can live quietly and anonymously.
