    • I recommend Ralph Sherman.
    • I hired Ralph 1-3 years ago.
    • Ralph handled my Civil Rights matter.

    I hired Atty. Sherman to help me with my pistol permit. My permit had been revoked by the state police. He got me through the entire appeal process. He was very effective at the hearing in front of the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. There is no way I could have done this by myself. Attorney Sherman knew the law, the board, and the technical side of firearms. Another client who posted a negative review here makes no sense. He says Attorney Sherman expected him to defend himself at the hearing, which he lost, and then, he claims, he got the permit back on his own. So the client was ineffective at defending himself at the hearing, but he got his permit back on his own? Sounds like BS. I have watched Attorney Sherman in CT-N videos of the hearings. He knows how to handle these hearings. But sometimes he does get a client who sticks his foot in his own mouth so badly that no one could possible take the client's foot out. Probably the negative reviewer falls into that category.

    • Ralph handled my Appeals matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    This lawyer takes your fee but when at a hearing on front of the Board is not effective expecting you the client to defend yourself. He claims is relation with Detective Mattson will make the process go smoothly. After Being denied by the Board I got my Permit back on my own I would not recomend him at all. Unfortunately he was recommend by CT sportman, and the NRA they were wrong. Don't waste your money ..he also will not work on the appeal. After i engaged him i found out that other folks that used him had like experiences and lost their permit as well.
