Lovely captivating man and judge. Very thoughtful clear and concise. I was a jury person in a murder trial and he made sure that we fully understood everything that was expected of us and took the time to inquire if we had any questions or concerns. My very first jury duty and very first murder case but I was grateful to have Hon. Piazza

Overall, Judge Piazza is an excellent judge. Sometimes he seems to favor certain lawyers, but he is ethical and ultimately he will make correct, legally founded decisions. A bit soft on enforcing the rules in civil cases. Former prosecuting attorney who divorced his first wife and married a deputy prosecutor who was on his staff - but he did the right thing and recused from all criminal cases while she was still in the prosecutor's office.
