What others have said about Hon. Kathleen Ann Panozzo


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: IL2350
This judge allowed the defendants lawyer to write up the court order, then she signed it. The defendant didn’t abide by the order and she still ruled for him. This was a small claims case in which I believe her and the lawyer had some sort of relationship. She wouldn’t even look at anything I had to support my case. I think she was very unfair and unjust.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: IL757
This judge clearly has no idea what constitutes right and wrong. I watched her give custody of a minor child to a mother who stated before she was held at a mental institute, and that she would harm her son and herself just to get back at the father. She still returned custody of the child to the mother, after the mother had stated the child has lived with him from birth and hardly ever saw the mother.


Comment #: IL650
Judge panozzo acted without jurisdiction when she allegedly conspired with her Alsip police friends to unlawfully set me up as a favor for her neighbor, and my ex employer. You may read more about it at http://crookcounty.peperonity.com


Comment #: IL566
As a victim of domestic abuse, I have seen her get mad at victims for dropping charges against their abusers, yet let the attacker get off due to a "technicality" & let his criminal defense attorney argue a family law case INSTEAD of the criminal case that should have been presented!!!
