Worst judge on the bench. Beware if he is the one making decisions in your case!!! He should be locked away!

Honorable Jack Helinger, was one of 3 judges I had through out my child support case of almost 3 years and in my opinion was the best judge and the only one who really gave me a fair hearing that I deserved..

Unethical, bias, prejudice and corrupt is unfortunately the Judge Jack Helinger I know. I pray for him and all of his victims.


Comment #: FL3796
This judge is smug, arrogant,liar who is rude and obnoxious, ignores bona fide evidence and makes up his own who has the audacity to say in open court, there is no justice i my courtroom. Maybe he has forgotten he works for the citizens of Florida

Comment #: FL3686
This judge has been repeatedly unfair and unprofessional to say the least, so much so that one attorney has filed a stipulation in one case stating this judge has not done "anything close to what would be fair or in the best interest of these children," "going in front of this person again "would make undersigned counsel physically ill," and the rulings "are not consistent with the Court's own findings or the prior judges' findings."

This dishonorable man believes men should raise their children via text messages. This person has significant issues.
