Civil Litigation - Private

One of the best judges I've ever practiced in front of. You won't find a judge more knowledgeable on the issues and facts of a case. He has a firm but fair hand on court matters, always with an eye towards a full and fair hearing of issues. You will rarely find a jurist of his intelligence and work ethic. I appreciate his habit of shaking hands of the parties who appear before him. Judge Urbanski merits Circuit promotion at the next available offering.

Great judge. Hard working, fair, pays attention to the issues. I practiced before him while he was a magistrate and am excited to see that he received a well-deserved promotion. Sometimes things work out like they're supposed to.

Judge Urbanski handled the litigators extremely well, I don't think if we'd had another judge that a settlement would have been reached. He was enthusiastic, fair, extremely plesant to deal with.
