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.
