Judge Nicastro has been working with community leaders since June 2020 to develop the Garfield Heights Community Advisory Committee.  The Committee was officially created by Court Order on May 13, 2021. 

The mission of the Committee is to act as a bridge between the community and the court by ensuring equitable access to justice, strengthening the voice of our citizens and advocating for fair and positive change. 

In pursuit of this mission, the Committee is focusing on creating a survey for court users, including attorneys, which will be emailed at the end of the case to all persons appearing before Judge Nicastro.  The survey will be based on sources recommended by the Center for Court Innovation.


Email to submit feedback to the Committee.  The Committee cannot address requests for legal assistance, requests for judicial action on any case, and cannot intervene in any case.  The Committee will collect your information and submit a report to Judge Nicastro on all feedback and comments.
