What others have said about Hon. John F. Simon



Comment #: FL4997
Rating:Not Rated
Judge Simon appears to have a relationship with the attorney for the plaintiff in my case. The other attorney mentioned on several occasions that she did in fact have a very good relationship with Judge Simon and would never lose in his court. He did not seem to know and did not appear to follow the law in my situation.


Comment #: FL4752
Judge Simon takes the honor out of honorable. He holds no regard to the laws and statues he swore to uphold. I have the displeasure of seeing him destroy innocent people's lives daily. Not only does he not follow court procedures,prosecutors are freely allowed to break the Florida statues on perjury, admissible evidence and whatever else they decide to insure a convictions.you base outcomes on your personal opinion of what the law means and not what is written in black and white.
