What others have said about Hon. Charles E. Burton



Comment #: FL6401
He catered to the demand of opposing party. It felt like a setup, or a pocket deal. Didn't take in consideration, that we had an agreement and that he is allowing an 8 y.o. child to travel 80 miles back and forth to/from school, just because her mommy wants to live with her boyfriend. No justice there. The rule was not taking in consideration my child, just her mother, that keeps ripping her child into pieces. Biased and incapable to empathy.


Comment #: FL3863
Judge Burton is stupid, biased, incompetent and advises litigants to engage in illegal activity.

Comment #: FL3035
Rating:Not Rated
Judge Charles Burton is biased against defendants and is definitely pro-prosecution. He lacks compassion and can be hot-tempered. But Judge Burton has a lot of people convinced that he is a "fair" judge.
