Nicholas Palos is a real disgrace to the Law community. He should really be investigated.

Rating:Not Rated
Comments:
Obvious he is retaliatory and vengeful when his decisions are appealed. Shouldn't put a magistrate to do a judge's job- totally biased, unfair, unprofessional. Maybe someone needs to learn how to respect before expecting respect.

Clearly someone who is not deserving of a title befitting a judge. Clearly is oblivious and uneducated in the very law that he represents. Not only has he made numerous mistakes on my husbands case he has violated my privacy by disclosing all of my personal and financial premarital and current marital information to the opposing attorney and his client then tries to cover his own sorry ***

I keep reading he's biased against women. This piece of work is just biased period. No one double checks his numbers, no one checks him and he is one of the most arrogant, condescending piece of... I have ever spoken to in my life barre none. He didn't explain anything, OBVIOUSLY LIED, on his paper work and I just can't believe this guy. I'm a man and he is not biased against women, he is just biased against humanity, logic, reason, math, you name it. Anything that doesn't agree woth the great Nocholas J Palos is wrong and should be spat on.

This judge is so bias against women it's not even funny. He is extremely condescending, rude and tyrannical. You can't even speak in his court room and ask legitimate questions without him humiliating him. He did a severe injustice to my child and he is not capable of being diplomatic to both parties. In my opinion as a citizen of this country , he is not impartial , should not be appointed a judge and clearly abuses his judicial authority.

My rating of Palos is off the charts. He is below grade. He has made NUMEROUS errors in calculation of child support. I have gone to the trial judge, to the appellate division and here I am back in his part. He doesn't read the paperwork presented. He has not only cost me thousands in attys fees, but has garnished my salary for monies already paid. He is not only stupid, but he is arrogant and incompetent. How he ever got to be Magistrate is a mystery. He should be de-benched.

These numbers should be attached to my earlier comments. This magistrate does not even merit one star. An evaluation of his incredible incompetence and questionable conduct is not based solely on my observation, but I stand on the UNANIMOUS REVERSALS decided by justices of the Appellate Division. One justice said of Magistrate Palos: "I find the magistrate's work amazing, appalling, and incredible." He has many, many complaints against him. Every day that he remains on the bench anywhere in the New York State Court system, the rights and best interests of the people of this state are in jeopardy. He should be removed from the bench.

This man is one of the poorest excuses for a Support Magistrate that NYC can find. He is a screamer, belligerent, nasty, power-hungry, and incompetent. He yells to disguise his incompetence. Read the many websites that criticize his abilities.
