Great Judge. Litigation is always win or lose. For everyone that complains there is an opposing party that feels quite differently and there story is untold. If you truthfully exposed the details of your case on this blog we would probably agree with the judge.

She is the most unfair, unprofessional judge I have had to deal with. her abuse of power is disheartening. She rules without research, DUI says it all!! I will personally make sure she doesnt get re-elected!!!

Judge Sheehan is outstanding. Judge Sheehan does a great job at spotting BS.
And we the people elected her. She is fair and balanced and always sees the truth.

If you are a poor person who cannot afford an attorney you are in bad trouble with this judge. She will not let you get a word, will not hear your objections, deny your motions, and set you up to fail by ordering you to do things that she knows that you cannot do. She will set you up to fail so that she can rule in favor of the person whom she feels is the better person simply because of material means. She has no regard for domestic violence victims and is for the man and his "rights" regardless of putting the mother in more danger. It would appear that Tampa just threw out the trash onto Plant City. If she is so much for the children they need to put her back in that division or put her out of office. She is no judge when she cannot see when a person is lying and has been set up by their spouce. You would think that she would at least give the benefit of a doubt to the opinions of CPS and domestic violence personal. I thought their opinion counted for something. And, I guess it only matter for somethng when they are agreeing with her not against her.

This judge does not have best interest of children. She is a disgusting human that shouldn't be a judge. She isn't fair, she rules based on non facts and is usually one sided. She is extremely disrespectful and rude! She has no room to judge anyone's character and is incompetent after being found guilty and admitting to a DUI. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT???

Without an attorney you're doomed, even if it puts children harms way, and no regards for facts..

Exceptionally poor judge. She demonstrates a disregard for case law and the basic professionalism of the bench that is disheartening.

She favors the husband, she over looks a DUI and discrimination against Christians. Literally laughed and me because I attend church... she is a sad person.

I'm not sure what happened to Judge Sheehan. In Tampa, she was great. In Plant City, she has become bitter, one-sided (usually the woman who "boo-hoos" the most), and makes rulings that do not comport with Florida statutes and the case law. More than once she has told me that my clients "may take advantage of their rights of appeal" upon her rulings, over my clear objections. She regularly issues rulings where there were no findings of fact, and jumps to conclusions where no testimony or evidence was presented therefor. You're in for a long haul if you draw her as your family judge.

While in Tampa, Judge Sheehan was great. Ever since she got transferred to Plant City, if she does not like your client, she will find a way to rule against them. As such, she is not the cool, fair judge I first met in Tampa. Now she roots for whoever she feels is the underdog, regardless of the law or equity.
