Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY9749
Hostile to both counsel. Everything revolved around an unknown “holiday” she insisted would end the trial after 3 days.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9602
I have commented only about those items of which I have knowledge. Neither I nor my adversaries ever needed to re-schedule any matters before Judge Sheares, nor have I seen her handle or attempt to handle complex litigation, and therefore I will not speculate about these topics.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: NY7655
She can't get a trial completed to save her life. Tries to play social worker from the bench and leaves children languishing in foster care for years.


Comment #: NY7031
This judge is by far the WORST I have EVER stood before. Chewing gum on the bench, yelling for no reason, not to mention LATE to the part and RUDE on top of RUDE. TAKE HER OFF THE BENCH PERIOD.
