Judge Shumacher is the epitome of what a good state court judge should be. I can only imagine how much better of a judge he could be if he just had the resources. A class act all around.

Judge Schumacher is an outstanding judge. He reads and takes the time to understand everything that is submitted to him. And, understanding his role in the judicial process, he never allows his ego or frustration with parties or counsel to get in the way of fair and speedy rulings. If not the best, certainly among the top five on the Miami-Dade County bench.
