Sharon is a highly skilled, knowledgeable and caring lawyer. She is very protective of her clients and in every case, seeks the best result possible with earnest diligence. She is well-respected by judges. prosecutors, and her peers. When you are looking for a lawyer who will really fight for you--rather than merely lead you into a guilty plea--you cannot go wrong with Sharon. I strongly recommend her.
