What others have said about Hon. Pat Kinsey



Comment #: FL5574
I gave this judge evidence of perjury in the court, her response was to do NOTHING. I paid for a reopen fee for her to say "not a party to the case" she failed to act on information provided, allowing the defendant to make a "mockery of the court" she failed to act or ethically report the felony that has taken place

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL3651
Just Google this judge and you will see the Florida Supreme Court reprimanded her for her campaign tactics. She was moved out if criminal for that reason, but good luck if you are an attorney or have an attorney who doesn't donate to her campaign. She has also said several disparaging remarks outside the courtroom about the Defendants in Landlord/Tenant court that makes you wonder if she should be the only judge handling the issue in Escambia. One of the worst judge I have ever had to deal with.


Comment #: FL1906
Judge Kinsey was very professional, explained things very clearly and treated everyone in that courtroom with dignity and respect. I was, quite honestly, impressed.
