He is weak-minded, and easily confused with relatively simple facts. Ultimately both sides reached a reasonable settlement, but this had nothing to do with insightful judicial work.

This judge represents cronyism at its best. It's not what you know, but who you know. Otherwise, your case will go south. There is blatant favoritism in his rulings if you participate in the political arena -- otherwise, take a seat and watch how a judge fixes the rulings to sink your case.

He acts more like a federal judge, except he understands the laws. He is an "old school" judge who demands respect and absolute decorum in the courtroom. He has a strong sense of justice and will not take B.S. from "slick" lawyers. He is one of the most fair and respectable judges in New York state. If you are not a jerk, consider yourself lucky to be assigned to him.

I can't say enough about judge palmieri. For two years I had been telling my lawyers the absolute truth about the ex and his shennanigans, and they all tried to strong arm me to settle custody with a shared arrangement, even with parental alienation...( minimal to moderate, nothing outrageous , yet still soul crushing to our innocent
Children). The judge saw right thru the lies and B.S. and called the ex out on the carpet in the courtroom. He was incredibly professional in the courtroom, and obviously an accurate judge of character who did what was best...AND to the letter of the law. No politics will affect this Honorable Judge with unheard of integrity in this horribly unjust divorce system of NY.

Upon his election in 2010, Justice Palmieri was assigned to the Matrimonial Part of Supreme Court, Nassau County. That assignment is about as close to Hell as most judges want to get. But during his service there, he has proven to be a hard working, dedicated jurist, who has taken a remarkable interest in this field of law. Like few before him, he attends every seminar and is always digging for the right (and the just) answer. Don't let the stern exterior put you off, he is a great trial judge.

He is a very hard working judge. He can be a bit too serious and sometimes heavy handed. I would take him over most of the judges in the downstate area every day. He turns around complex motions in a short time with full, reasoned decisions. a credit to the bench.

I really have no comment I wish I could talk to the Judge Palmieri, about my case. I really need some help my lawyer has not called me back. I would like to go according to the papers that the Judge signed off on. I am doing every thing I can according to my paper work but the other person is not. What do I do? This case is draining me of my health and our resources. We're retired and can not continue like this. We lived and worked on Long Island all our lives. Please help us.
Sincerely

Judge Palmieri is a hard-working, well-meaning judge. He often lacks a sense of humor, and over-thinks issues which should not require such deliberation. He performs reasonably well given his abilities. He is a good man, but lacking.

Judge Palmieri is industrious, hard-working and above all, even-handed and fair to all. He runs a relaxed courtroom, and lets the lawyers try their cases.

Palmieri is a great trial judge. He is astute, respectful (though sometimes he can get cranky) and truly respects lawyers who really try cases. He works very hard and expects you to do the same. Though he rarely hears criminal cases anymore, his way with witnesses and litigants is very respectful and courteous. When you are in his courtroom you feel like you are in a federal court. He belongs on a United States District Court bench.
