What others have said about Hon. Jack R. St. Arnold



Comment #: FL3809
This judge was extremely disrespectful even to my 85 year old mother. can't find anything good to say since he has hurt so many people under his reign as a probate judge. I think he has deep pockets and he won't officiate at any of my future hearings as he is implicated in probate fraud.

My interactions with Judge St. Arnold have always been very positive. He is thoughtful and even-handed in his rulings. I have never seen him exhibit any favoritism. He is not vulnerable to flim-flam appeals to sentimentality or arguments not based in the law. It's refreshing to see a judge who is both a scholar and a gentleman.


Comment #: FL3626
Embarrassment to the system.


Comment #: FL3496
This gentleman has a heart of gold

Comment #: FL3198
My own experience with this judge made it very clear that he is corrupt and willing to cater to those with connections as a way of securing his position. Intellectually, Judge Jack St. Arnold is plainly lacking. However, far more significant is his lack of respect for the law, and his willingness to violate the rights of parties in order to score points with lawyers that he feels will assist him. He is dishonest, abuses his power and is the sort of man who brings shame to the judicial process.


Comment #: FL2720
He sets his buddies up with huge fees and enjoys parties and playing it up.Person with big ties, St. Pete. College, Fla. Bars, Guardianship Associations, they are all his groupies and he pays them well. He should be removed!
