What others have said about Hon. Robert Nahman


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY12060
He was a terrible Supreme Court judge and an even worse Surrogate. His sucessor as Surrogate, is even worse. Uses his position to dole out political patranage assigments and awards overly gneroous fees. Should be removed as a JHO.

Rating:Not Rated
Judge Nahman, as of 2010, is no longer Surrogate.
Governor Paterson appointed him to the Supreme Court, Queens. He was then certificated twice to continue past the mandatory retirement age for two more years, next expiring Dec. 2014 (when he will be eligible for only one more extension).

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY3832
Rating:Not Rated
Another loser judge who made it to the bench via politics


Comment #: NY3208
A very temperamental, disrespectful individual who is showing signs of Alzheimer's. He should not be on the bench
