Great judge. Judge Uzcategui knows her calendar, prepares and understands her cases. She listens to counsel, considers their arguments and makes rationale, well-reasoned decisions. A star in what is otherwise an incompetent judicial probate panel.

Judge Uzcategui renewed my faith in the justice system. After a hideous experience in small claims court with inept Judge Walmark and an illegal ruling, Judge Uzcategui over-ruled his denial of our appeal and allowed us to have our day in court...after which we WON the case he found against us! Very grateful that she took the time to actually look at the evidence.


Comment #: CA38460
Very professional. She holds her courtroom well. Gets to the facts and lets everyone know the rules. She was hearing an appeal in my case. I had a horrible judge rule in the plaintiff's favor based on emotion and not one piece of evidence. I appealed and Hon. Uzcatequi listened to EVIDENCE and ruled there was not enough evidence and the ruling for the plaintiff was overturned. Justice was done today. There was no proof and the plaintiff was lying to get money. Thank you, your honor. It takes a woman to get it right.
