Mr. Sherman kept me informed every step of the way. He was very thorough in covering every aspect of my case. The case went on for a while, but his encouragement never faltered. Without him I would never had such a positive experience or outcome with the courts. I would highly recommend Mr. Sherman to anyone in need of his services.
Great Trail Lawyer

I am a former client of Michael Sherman and I would highly recommend this man. First off, I had a DUI charge that I knew to be false and I wanted to fight it. Before arriving at Mr. Sherman's office I had visited and spoke with a few other lawyers. Mr. Sherman was the only one that truly listened to my testimony and recommended for me to challenge the charges and take it to court. Every other lawyer told me that I could get house arrest which in no way was what I was looking for. To be frank, I had a very long and challenging case. Mike was always there to answer my questions (I had alot) and also was polite and answered questions that my parents had as well. My case went on for almost a year and a half and I have to admit I started losing faith. Mr. Sherman was there to pick me up when I was down and continued to remind me what I was fighting for. Without his knowledge and enthusiasm I might have taken a plea deal. I was facing 6 months of house arrest and a loss of my license for 18th months. When my case finally went in front of the judge I was blown away with Mike's knowledge. He is an unbelievable trail lawyer. After a year and half and countless trips to the court room Mike got all of my charges dismissed on account that I was not in physical control of the vehicle. If you are in a tight spot and want an attorney that truly has your best interest and will fight for you Mr. Sherman is the lawyer for you.
A LAWYER YOU CAN TRUST

When I hired Mike Sherman, 2 other lawyers told me there was nothing I could do to fight my case. They told me to plead guilty. Mr. Sherman told me he couldn’t guarantee the outcome but we at least had a chance if we hired an expert to fight the blood test result. I feel I wasn’t drunk and I had witnesses with me to prove it. I hired an expert and when the state got the expert’s report, the case was dismissed. I strongly recommend Mike Sherman if you need a defense lawyer.

I did not hire Mr. Sherman but would recommend him to anyone as he was prompt in returning my inquiry, helpful and thorough in assessing my particular situation and directing me to the appropriate services. My particular needs were not his specialty, however I was quite impressed with him!
Above and Beyond

Attorney Sherman was honest and extremely knowledgeable in the handling of my case. I appreciate someone who gets to the point without sugarcoating the truth and that is exactly what you get with Attorney Sherman. Down to earth and honest explanantion of possible outcomes, best case scenarios, and step by step contact to keep me informed of what would happen with the case. The process of going through a DUI is not easy by any stretch but having an excellent attorney made it less painful to handle and still get results that were significantly less than anticipated.

I was facing my 3rd DUI. I was at risk of losing my job, my house and my whole world. I found Attorney Mike Sherman online and arranged to meet with him to discuss the details of my predicament. From the very beginning, Attorney Sherman was very understanding. He was not judgmental, and was very welcoming and kind. He walked me through, step by step, as he prepared my case. Even though this was my third DUI he did not pass judgment on me. I was charged in July 2010. The DA’s office kept continuing my case month after month, hoping to frustrate and discourage us from fighting the charges. Attorney Sherman never fell for their tricks and saw my case through to the end. It was not until October 2012, that it all came to an end. During these two years we went to court several times, Mike also appeared on my behalf a few times. (He understands you have to work, if you don't need to be there he will let you know). His expertise, experience and background of the DUI Laws and court system is second to none. He believed in me and he believed in my case. He investigated every possible avenue before deciding on a strategy to challenge my DUI charge. Mike attained an expert witness and the evidence to prove the inaccurate procedures/ problems with the testing devices used by the crime lab in testing my blood sample. As a result, my case ended in a Nolle Prosse (an admission that the charges cannot be proved, that evidence has demonstrated either innocence or a fatal flaw in the prosecution's claim). Mike’s skills, ability, knowledge and experience are exceptional. After all he used to work for the other side as an attorney for the PA State Police. These qualities combined with his efforts to do his very best for his client gave me the best representation I could possibly have had. He is highly skilled and comfortable presenting/explaining the facts and evidence in the courtroom. He was always organized, prepared and never once became unsettled by the DA’s remarks. If anything, the DA appeared apprehensive by Attorney Sherman’s expertise and calm, yet confident demeanor. As evidenced by the DA’s petition for Nolle prosse. My previous experiences with lawyers and the court system have been less then favorable. I’ve always been encouraged to take the plea offer but that wasn’t the case with Mike. He encouraged me to fight the charges and in the end we won. My charges were dismissed. Hiring Attorney Mike Sherman was the best decision I could have made. I recommend his services to everyone and encourage you to listen and take his advice. It’s the best out there.

Being charged with a DUI is embarrassing and overwhelming for someone with no criminal history. Mike Sherman eased my mind. He was very understanding and armed me with information about each step in the process. I knew Mike was working on my side and would certainly work with him again in the future.

I was facing a very hefty DUI charge with a case that included many complicating factors. If convicted of the DUI, I would have lost my job and likely have had a very large black mark on my record. Attorney Sherman was always positive and always told me everything was going to be fine. When we went to court he was persistent in talking with the prosecutor and never backed away. When we went before the judge, attorney Sherman successfully challenged the validity of the charges against me, and the case was subsequently dismissed. I am still in awe at the result and would recommend attorney Sherman to anyone who is found in a similar situation. His fees were reasonable; he always answered my questions in a positive way and had a positive attitude towards helping me through my situation. He always assured me that I would be fine in the end, and tried to dismiss my fears. I greatly appreciate his efforts and will always be grateful for his excellent legal talents.
If only he called back...

We tried for 1.5 months to have Mike Sherman represent my husband on his first DUI. After initially responding very quickly to our e-mail, it was then sporadic when we could reach him. We would call, leave messages, leave e-mails, and wouldn't get a response - only if he answered the phone himself could we talk to him. It seemed like he was going to work with us, but we finally realized he just wasn't interested. We're now 1 week away from my husbands court date, and have given up on Mike. We've tried reaching another lawyer, who didn't show up for a meeting this morning...guess none of them need the business...
