What others have said about Hon. Edward Nicholas


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL9680
If one of the parties before him is part of the old Manatee County establishment, he is very biased in favor of the establishment

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL8367
He is fair and well-respected in the community.


Comment #: FL7982
The sooner he is removed from the bench, the more the justice will benefit. He is the most terrible person, and he doesn't hide that the only thing that matters to him is BIG MONEY.


Comment #: FL7318
He was a real jerk to me as also was his bailiff in a divorce hearing. Very mean to me as if he hated women. One of our customer's where I worked at the time, reiterated that he had been the same way to her. Horrible man.


Comment #: FL7246
If you are Pro Se you just as well not be in front of him. He is rude and steps over all your civil rights.

He does not judge based on evidence. He judges for Lawyers that represent business.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL3665
This is a competent criminal trial judge. Civil matters are outside the wealth of his experience.
