What others have said about Hon. Gaetan B. Lozito



Comment #: NY9091
This judge is not prejudicial. I can tell that although she is disappointed in my behavior, she wants the best for me. Its odd. I committed a second criminal offense and was arraigned by her. I felt guilty for letting her down after she gave me a chance. I can tell she wants me to do well. In order for people to not recidivate, you need to endear them to the police and the justices who will be serving the community. I like Lozito. She scares the crap out of me, but I can tell that she is a good read of people. Don't expect her to hold your hand, but if you respect her, listen to her, appear as told, you'll be ok.

Another example of a moody and arbitrary Suffolk judge whose attitude infects the rest of the court personel. Well, except for some of the court officers who often look as if they feel sorry for attorneys and clients. This judge creates conflict where none exists and makes personal comments out of either deep insecurity or general nuttiness. A number of older attorneys, including the husband of another (more professional) District Court judge told me that Lozito actually has calmed down since ten years ago. Glad I was not around then! Shame that so many terrible judges in Suffolk remain on the bench indefinitely with zero oversight.
