Practice areas

Since 1998, Mark D. Sherman has been a member in good standing of the State Bars of Connecticut, New York and Florida.

His practice focuses on criminal and civil litigation, serving clients in the Connecticut and New York metropolitan areas. Mark has successfully handled scores of serious and sensitive criminal and employment matters, some of which have received high profile media attention.

  • In 2010, Mark made history by procuring the largest whistle-blowing bounty award in SEC history on behalf of his client for her participation in an SEC insider trading investigation.
  • In 2008, Mark received national attention for his representation of Leonard Trujillo, Jr., who faced capital murder charges for his role in the death of Greenwich businessman Andrew Kissel. The capital murder charges were ultimately dropped, and Mr. Trujillo pled to reduced charges.

Mark prides himself on the time and attention he gives to all of his clients—whether high or low profile—and recognizes that while the legal profession is primarily technical and academic, it is also a service business. To that end, he works to ensure that all of his clients receive the highest degree of service, time and attention, seven days a week.

Mark has also appeared as a guest commentator on Court TV, Fox News and ESPN. He also routinely lectures to schools and parents’ groups on cyber-safety and the dangers and perils for kids growing up in today’s techno-centric society.

Mark graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 and subsequently earned his law degree at the Fordham University School of Law in 1998, where he served as President of the Student Bar Association. After law school, Mark joined the litigation department of the New York law firm of Pryor, Cashman, Sherman & Flynn, practicing in their litigation group and later left to start his own practice.

Mark regularly lectures to public and private schools in Fairfield County on cybersafety, anti-bullying initiatives, and alcohol and substance abuse prevention. For information on having Mark present to your group or school, please call Christine Bartlett at the number below.

I was in a particularly difficult couple of years back . Mark took very good care of us and ensured we got out of it intact. He was very responsive and made us feel comfortable throughout thr process. I called him very recently to get some legal advise on another matter. He immediately responded and told us the best direction to take. He is the best out there, no doubt!!

Super Sherman
Mark is a therapist/lawyer and makes you feel at ease. He is simply the most personable and caring attorney in the tri-state area. Mark will call you back ASAP. If you are being bullied by law enforcement or a large corporation......call Mark. Do not talk to law enforcement with his expert representation. They are not your friend. His presence alone intimidated the detective. As a medical professional he saved my career when a representative from a large corporation abused his power because of a personal vendetta. Mark was confident from day one that we would win the case.....and he was right!! He waived his magic wand and the charges seemingly vanished. Worth every $$$$$.

Mark Sherman - super responsive and effective
Mark returned my call immediately after I left a message. My questions were answered quickly and in an understandable and logical form. Which also put me at ease. This was a call on Saturday - they really do mean 24/7. Really, I should say 24/7/365 because this call was made on Christmas day. Would absolutely recommend this firm.

He is a magician!
Had a traffic violation. Called Attorney Sherman. He explained the process, and made it so easy! So accessible despite being such a rockstar. Better than expected results. I had heard from many others, including trusted lawyer friends, that he is the BEST IN THE BUSINESS! It's true.

Outstanding Support!
Mark and his team were phenomenal end to end. They consistently informed me of the process, set expectations, and pushed for the best possible outcome at every turn. Amanda managed to get online records removed from search and Mark brought it all home with a successful motion for early dismissal. Thank you!!

Results Driven, Aggressive, Assertive
Mark is a fantastic attorney. He works for his clients and aims to garner the BEST results. I retained Attorney Sherman last year and I wish that I retained him sooner! His staff is professional and zealous in the discovery process. His team was unrelenting and tirelessly worked at gathering all of the testimony and evidence to support my innocence. Throughout my case, Mark kept me abreast of the developments and advised me throughout the process leading up to the closure. Mark is honest, forthcoming and direct. He works for his client 100%! His associate, Caitlyn Murphy is fantastic. She kept me in the loop and was very understanding toward me and my plight. I recommend Mark Sherman and his impeccable team without reservation. He understands the DCF system and yields positive results. Thank you for presenting the truth in my case, which provided me with vindication. I appreciate you and your team!

Mark Sherman, hands down... is the best attorney in Stamford!!!

Helping neighbors
I contacted Mark Sherman's office on behalf of a neighbor one evening at 9pm, the night before a 9am hearing re: a disorderly conduct citation stemming from a domestic situation. The office not only responded right away, but was able to appear the next morning, and defended their client with both sensitivity and effectiveness, allowing the client to go back to home that morning, and ultimately getting charge dismissed. 5 stars!! I would definitely give the highest recommendations to this office.

Unfortunately, the saying "Bigger Kids, Bigger Problems" could not be more true. Faced with the unthinkable, we are so, so fortunate Mark helped us through this process. He's straightforward, knowledgeable, professional and accessible. And we are so thankful for the verdict received at the Stamford Courthouse. Thank you, Mark!
