About Me

I was an oil/gas landman for a couple of decades.  Being a landman exposed me to a plethora of conflicts between corporations, landowners, employees (as a manager) and criminal actors.  I'm also a real estate broker and have negotiated many transactions.  I excelled in writing, trial and appellate work in law school. I've taken all this experience and rolled into helping people.  I look for resolution outside trial when possible but embrace going to trial optimistically because the "truth will set you free," and many people are falsely accused.  Fight rather than ruin your clean record.  If you did what you are accused of, perhaps the evidence doesn't support the charge or complaint, so you should still fight.  I handle every case with the care I would expect to be afforded me if I were in that position.

  • David Michael Ryan

    Do not let her quiet demeanor fool you, because this lawyer is a fighter well versed in the law who gives no quarter. Understated and soft spoken, opponents learn quickly she has the skills and persuasion to win her argument.

    I endorse this lawyer.without hesitation. I have been practicing for over 30 years and I have seldom encountered the level of professionalism displayed by Toni Sharretts in what was a very difficult matter. She is wise in the practice of law, a rare quality. She is tenacious, up to date on the intricacies of the law, and procedurally very knowledgeable. Her zeal at defending her client's interests is to be commended, but her tempering the zeal with intelligence and understanding of the matter is exceptional.
