It would be overstated and a lie to say that Judge Vincent Ochoa’s conduct, on the Bench in family court, was anything remotely close to being acceptable, unbiased, impartial, honorable or competent.
As a litigant in Judge Ochoa’s courtroom, I have, on a regular basis, been personally threatened, prejudged, maligned, insulted, belittled, lied to, cheated, and discriminated against; had wrongful TPO’s placed against me, and had unfair judgments and court orders levied against me; my court documents were ignored and disregarded, my attorneys were manipulated and intimidated; the legal process in court was convoluted and was replaced by Judge Ochoa’s personal bias against me, all done without any regard for the health and welfare of my daughter, Makayla, by keeping her separated from her mother, and placing unlawful and discriminatory legal court-ordered barriers and sanctions against me, in order to keep an innocent mother away from her minor child, for unknown and unsubstantiated reasons.
Judge Ochoa is widely known for not thoroughly examining crucial submitted documentation, along with randomly turning off the court recording devices at crucial moments during litigation; also unlawfully altering the courts minutes and records to justify his actions and inactions.
These actions, by Judge Vincent Ochoa, were formally submitted in a complaint and sent to the Nevada Judicial Disciplinary Committee for review by me earlier in the year.
I actually pity any party that is forced to be judged in Judge Vincent Ochoa’s courtroom, as this would be like entering the “nightmare from hell.” I especially warn and advise anybody that is considering voting for Judge Vincent Ochoa in order for him to continue his reign of terror, to seriously re-consider, and vote for anyone else but him.
Family Court Judges do not have an easy task, but unless all parties are treated fairly and equally by the court, and are afforded their due process rights, the system will fail each and every time.
