What others have said about Hon. Pamela E. Loza



Comment #: IL2520
The system itself seems to have one purpose and that is to hold people down. I have watched Judge Loza for over five years and her courtroom behavior is atrocious, maybe her time on the bench has hardened her, but reading previous interviews and her speech about "family", "support", and the importance of both is not something she truly shares in the courtroom environment. She is unfair in her rulings, she is very degrading to council and their clients. She is also very rude and short with people at the bench. It is truly disgusting what goes on in that courtroom.

Rating:Not Rated
Definitely plays favorites with the attorneys. Doesn’t even attempt to hide her bias. Disgusting when people’s lives and families are at stake.

Judge Loza does not know law, is wild in her statements, allows for her favorites to not follow rules because she herself does not know the rules. At election time, she came into the Polling Place in Mount Prospect with donuts and announced, Vote for Me, Pam Loza, for Judge. She is terrible in the court room. She is late and brazen with false accusations.

Comment #: IL1002
Very even handed in difficult situations. Can get to the heart of the litigation and get the matter resolved.
