What others have said about Hon. Mara Zazzali-Hogan


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NJ2452
The only reason Mara is a judge is because of her father. I went Before her. She read none of my motion . We put in documented proof . She ignored it. Instead smiling at the attorney she new and made sure that my Ex attorney with no proof of anything got his way . She eventually had to recuse herself from my case because of bias due to emails we found of my Ex attorney and her law clerk . She has no compassion for children even though it is family court. She is there to protect them. Finally got a decent Judge named Justus. And I thank God I never have to go before Zazzlli again. Make sure you hire an attorney she's in with. She is not fit to be on the bench and she truly thinks she is above the law because of her father . A pity she forgets there is a place in hell for her !!

Stunning example of incompetence. She obviously does not or can not read a single word of the documentation presented. The bias is blatant and without shame. This judge makes up the law and rules as she goes. Good thing her father got her as far as he did.


Comment #: NJ2166
This judge is another Bias judge who does not read motions . Facts are put in writing before her , she ignore. Favors lawyers who have been before her. I wish these judges would read motions carefully, instead of relying on their clerks. She does not follow the law, only her own bias.
Another dud .
