What others have said about Hon. Mauricio Araujo


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: IL1193
This judge gave us a very fair jury trial. He knew the important issues in the case and he knew the law. He allowed the attorneys to try their case and sat back and called balls and strikes. His judicial temperament was pleasant and moved the trial along smoothly. During a jury trial this judge will let a lawyer work and that's all I can ask for. Im a fan.


Comment #: IL1111
I don't like this judge. I found him to be very condescending and rude. If you don't have knowledge of the law, he tries to make you feel inferior. Can't wait to vote Nov 4th. Certainly we can do better for the residents of cook county. This judge needs to go back into private practice.


Comment #: IL1094
This judge doesn't listen to evidence yet bases his rulings by gender preference. He is unfair and unqualified. If you get this judge in a domestic case, it is in your best interest to request a new hearing. He is awful and always sides with men, even if the men have done some awful things to women.


Comment #: IL1093
This judge issues orders of protection for liars and criminals. A man who claimed to be my ex-boyfriend, lied to this judge and told him we had been in a relationship when we never were. This man vandalized my car and home and got away with it. This douchebag judge believed his lies and ruined my life for 18 months. Note to all; go ahead and lie in court and you can absolutely get away with it! Get an order of protection against someone, even if there is documentation and witnesses that they put their hands on you! Dear Judge, you have no biz being a judge! You suck!
