Won’t regret it
Getting charged with a DUI can be worrisome. The stakes are so high that you have to be certain that every move you make is the right one. Hiring Mr. Sherman is the right move.

Saved my career and life
I was SO relieved picking Michael Sherman. I had a felony & 7 other charges. At the end of the day, I ended up with no felony and 2 charges. I could have been in jail for 10 years. I got 1 month house arrest with work release & probation. I wanted to plead guilty, even though I wasn’t and mike advised me we could win, I myself couldn’t risk going to jail putting my hands in a jury with the case against me. The victims had 2,000 pages of medical records. Mike Sherman is the best decision I made and only good thing about 2020!

2nd DUI Charge and Getting it Dropped!
Getting my 2nd DUI charge was definitely a sadtime in my Life. Especially coming only after a year from my last one. Only thing I could think about was losing my Job, not having my drivers license, and what people would think of me. I was so depressed. So I did what anyone would do and that was find the perfect lawyer for me and my case. After looking around I found Attorney Michael Sherman. Someone that taught classes on DUIs, wrote books on DUIs and is rated PRO here on Avvo by his peers. Let me just say, they are right. He is a pro. What better Attorney could you have then having someone that wrote the BOOK! Being a Army Combat Veteran Michael took me under his wing. He knew all the questions to ask and key points to bring up in my case. He even Had the arresting authority shaking in his seat when he was throwing questions at him about the integrity of my pull over. I remember the cop saying inside my preliminary hearing to Mr. Sherman, "you really know what your talking about", I knew then I chosen the right Lawyer. As my case went on Mr. Sherman found flaws in the officers statement and dashcam videos suggesting the cop had no probable cause to pull me over. He was right , Mr. Sherman found evidence that other attorneys might have missed, and if he would have missed those key facts I could be sitting here on house arrest with a 1 year suspension on my Drivers License and no job. But that's not the case. After a few months of court dates and deliberation the court and the district attorney agreed to Drop my charge. All thanks to Mr. Sherman and his law firm!! I never felt so happy And relieved in my life! I couldnt believe I walking out of that court room with no DUI charge! I bet the judge was even thinking how this happen haha. Putting my trust in Attorney Michael Sherman was the best thing I could have done. And I mean it when I say "He's worth every penny!" When the future of your near life is in jeopardy money means nothing when choosing the right Attorney. Michael Sherman is that RIGHT attorney for any DUI case and I will always refer people to him and his law firm. I am so thankful to have chosen Attorney Michael Sherman and his Law firm. Without them I wouldnt be where I'm at today. I Still got my Job and my Drivers License! Very Happy Veteran! Thank You Attorney Michael Sherman for all that you done for me! You really do give back to America's military and its veterans. Thank you!

A skiled DUI Lawyer
I was facing 2 DUI's within a 3 year time period. Attorney Michael Sherman along with his office staff are a team of professional, knowledgeable and skilled experts. With my first one that Attorney Sherman assisted me with he proved to be the cutting edge in DUI defense, we hired an expert to defend the blood results for BAC, we won the case in court and had everything dropped to a favorable outcome. The 2nd DUI was a much different story that I knew to be false, with myself facing this charge my life was in jeopardy along my job and everything else that I worked so hard for; so I turned to Mike once again after everything with the first was settled and put behind me. I trusted Mike so much with his previous experience that I knew he would get me the results I asked for, during the 9 month period that it went on for Mike requested the discovery of the police video, breathe and blood tests. He filed a motion solely due to the commonwealth not having enough evidence to convict me and that everything after the traffic stop was of an illegal nature. The officers affidavit of probable cause did not match what we saw on the video and the video proved to be in our defense along with other flaws, Mike and I went to court knowing what the outcome could be, once the court received our written motion the Judge and DA dropped and dismissed all charges. I was more than thrilled of the outcome. Everything that I had asked of Mr. Sherman was met with professionalism and in the end he got me the result I wanted in both cases that I hired him for. He gave me a clean slate at a fresh beginning with no black marks. I consider Mike a true friend. He is very honest and will tell you straight forward how he thinks your case will go, he and his office staff will keep you informed every step of the way from start to finish. If you are looking for a honest, trustworthy attorney who will work for you and get you the best result in DUI defense, look no further than Mike Sherman Law. Well done!

Dream Team
I was facing a 2nd DUI offense, highest tier. As a prominent businessman in a small south central Pennsylvania community, a conviction on this offense would have been devastating to my career. I, immediately, did an intensive Internet search for DUI attorneys. Several names showed up but one name stood out: Mike Sherman Law. I called and, initially, discussed my case with Mike McFarland, Mr. Sherman's extremely capable associate. Mr. McFarland listened intently to my story and indicated that they could help. My preliminary hearing was scheduled but at this point I was still unaware what my BAC was. At the preliminary hearing, I was told it was .178. I knew that there was something terribly wrong with the reading. Mr. Sherman indicated that I had two options: Plea and receive a reduced sentence or go to trial and use an expert witness to challenge the reading. After a lot of thought, I chose to go to trial. Mr. McFarland and Mr. Sherman, immediately went to work. Retaining one of the premier lab audit experts in the country, retaining the services of a board-certified emergency medicine physician, obtaining background information on the police officer (DUI training, number of DUI arrests, etc.), filing motions to suppress the blood alcohol evidence which the state was using against me. It was as Mr. Sherman stated it would be, "an uphill climb all the way". After 3 long and tense hours of arguing, cross-examining and presenting evidence, I heard the words "Not Guilty". Mr. McFarland's and Mr. Sherman's preparation and skill in the court room made all the difference. The experts who they retained were leaders in their respective fields and their fees were extremely reasonable. If you find yourself in a situation similar to mine and you want the best possible outcome, then there really is only one name you need to know: Mike Sherman Law.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
I give a very high recommendation to Attorney Mike Sherman and his entire staff! Over the 1 ½ year time period it took to navigate the legal system to bring my case to completion, they have been very professional , and were very willing to answer any questions and help me understand the issues that came up during this time. In the end, through the expertise of Attorney Mike Sherman, all charges against me were dropped before this went to trial.

Best Call I ever made....unbelievable!!!
I contacted Michael about 10 months ago after researching hundreds of lawyers as my case was unique and I knew I needed the best. My case was almost 14 yrs old. I was accused of a DUI and several other misdemeanor charges that I felt were not legitimate. For years I was scared, confused and lost as to what steps to take next to resolve a pending case . Im a business man in the community and could not have this become an issue that could affect my job or even worse end with jail time, loss of driving privileges, fines, embarrassment and the list goes on. I called Michael and he immediately dropped what he was doing and made time for me to come down and see him. He saw that I was an emotional wreck and proceeded to calm me down and help me understand the process even before we discussed the details of the case. After getting all pertinent information from me he said "just let me handle it and go on with your life, I will contact you soon". I did. Shortly after I was contacted by Michael telling me exactly what needed to be done and how we should proceed. Even after that call he made a prior lawyer I hired look as if he never practiced law. I needed a lawyer that will fight for my liberties and excel with a challenge...this 100% was Attorney Sherman! After a few hearings Mike got my case to be completely dismissed...yes a dismissal of a 14yo case!!! His vast knowledge was so compelling that the court couldnt even argue and they knew if they did they would lose at trial. In the end I had No jail, none, no penalties of any kind and most importantly his team follows through to help with the expungement process. Thanks Michael for being the ultimate professional and getting the absolute best results. I would without hesitation recommend your services to anyone who finds themselves in the place I was in. If you're reading this review then you have found your lawyer...look no further!! Thank you!!!!

Even Good People Can Make Mistakes
About a year ago, I was charged with my second DUI. As a result, I reached out to Mike Sherman, who had represented me for my first DUI some years before. The first thing I remember Mike telling me was "Even good people can make mistakes. We will take care of you and stay positive!" The stakes for a second DUI are very high. I would advise anyone who find themselves in that situation, or even a first offense, to reach out to Mike and his team right away. Don't wait! Because it was my second offense, I faced 30 days house arrest, a one year driving license suspension and almost certain loss of my job. My whole quality of life was at stake. After discussing my specific circumstances with Mike, he recognized that I was in trouble, however, assured me that he would do everything within his ability and within the law to fight for me without ever giving me any false hope. Mike knows the law inside and out. That is without question. I would encourage anyone in a situation described above to consult with Mike Sherman. Most importantly, and no matter how bad the situation is, you must maintain a positive attitude. Over the last 12 months, I used what could have been a negative life changing situation into a positive one, and a lot of that is because of Mike Sherman's & Mike McFarland's counsel and support.

Highly recommended! Attorney Sherman always returned phone calls, answered all my questions, and made me feel calm about my case. If I ever find myself or a loved one in any trouble there's no other attorney I would even consider!

You can’t afford not to hire Attorney Michael Sherman!
Attorney Michael Sherman along with his associate Michael McFarland saved my life. I made a stupid mistake a few years prior and now I was facing my second DUI. I make my living driving, so if convicted I would have lost my drivers license for a year which meant I would have lost my house and my life as I know it. Mr. Sherman was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about all aspects of DUI law. He attacked every angle of my DUI stop and arresting officer. It was a long road, but in the end Mr. Sherman convinced the DA and the judge to acquit me of the charges before my trial even started. I would recommend Mike and his team to anyone facing DUI charges. There are different aspects to every case, but if your freedom and privileges are at stake you can’t afford not to hire Attorney Michael Sherman.

Atty. Sherman - Excellence at its best!
I highly recommend Attorney Mike Sherman. I was charged with DUI and originally hired a different attorney. My first attorney tried to convince me to simply plead guilty even though I had told her from the beginning that I refused to do that and I wanted (and paid) to go to trial. I ended up firing her on the day of the scheduled trial, since she was not prepared and was still trying to get me to accept a plea. That is when I found Attorney Sherman. I called him in a complete panic and he instantly gained my trust and set my mind at ease. I actually hired him over our first phone conversation. My case was already almost 3 years old at that point with no results, only constant postponements. Attorney Sherman had very little time to prepare before my next court date. He was extremely thorough and paid attention to small details of my case which had been overlooked by everyone previously involved in my case. As it turned out, those small details Attorney Sherman focused on were the key to the truth of my situation. Attorney Sherman ultimately won my case without us even having to go to trial! My nightmare of over 3 years was finally over thanks to Attorney Sherman. He did all of the work in just a couple short months. I honestly cannot thank him or recommend him enough. He is an outstanding attorney, whom you can trust completely to handle your case thoroughly with confidence, excellence & utmost respect for the client. I absolutely, confidently, recommend hiring Attorney Mike Sherman for your case.

He got the DUI dismissed in the first half hour of court. He is worth every penny, if not more. I highly recommend you hire this man and let him be in your corner. I know I will recommend him to anyone and everyone in the area. Thank you again Mr. Sherman we really appreciate your help in this sensitive matter!!

Saved my CDL
Hired Mike for a 1st dui offense. I would have lost my CDL if I had been convicted and ultimately lost my job. As the breadwinner for my family this was very scary. I previously hired another lawyer who had advised me to take ARD and told me I would not be able to beat the dui charge. I decided to have Mike represent me as my case progressed through the system, and it was the best decision I could have made. Mike was able to not only able to overturn the Dui charge, but also made it so I walked away with a clean criminal record. I walk away from my hearing with a fine and probation.

Michael fought and won!
When my husband was charged with a 3rd tier DUI last year, needless to say, we were in complete turmoil. My husband's work requires him to maintain a CDL and the notion of losing it and potentially his job was overwhelming. Everything he had worked so long and hard for was at risk. I made appointments with several lawyers and started researching as much as I could on each of them. Michael's credentials were so impressive he stood apart from all the rest, and frankly, I was ready to hire him before the interview. Our meeting with Michael came last and there was no comparison. The other lawyers advised us that ARD and sacrificing the CDL was the best option while Michael immediately started reviewing the police report looking for ways to defend my husband. We were so impressed with his strategy and the way he proceeded to pick apart the details of the arrest...he wanted to fight and we felt confident we had found the right attorney! I am thrilled to say Michael resolved the case with no DUI charge at all! Michael's expertise in DUI defense coupled with his professionalism is why my husband is free of this nightmare.

well done sir!
Mr. Sherman came highly recommended to me by a couple of people. He discussed my case with me thoroughly, he gave me the best advice he could, and was very personal as well as professional. When it came to deliver in court room he brought out all the points we discussed and more. His motions, fact finding, and case sightings were outstanding. I felt prepared for what I was facing and like I had a friend representing me. Thanks Mike!

My third DUI charge within ten years.
I was facing my third DUI charge within ten years. My third charge was at the lowest end of the scale from a breath analyzer. I watched the machine fail in front of me twice. I had a case here I wanted to fight. My previous lawyer was one who always wanted to plea. I hired Mike and he was a god send for me. He proved to me to be cutting edge knowledge for DUI cases. Mike steered me in the right direction.. Mike hired Jimmie L. Valentine for an expert. Mr. Valentine's findings on reviewing my case were very impressive. In the end the prosecution did reduce my charges to just traffic tickets. Without Mike's expertise I do not think my case would have turned out for my favor so well. Mike is a super nice guy. You give him a chance his knowledge will prove well for you!

The best decision I made
I was facing my third DUI and a year in state prison. My future was looking very bleak. However, unlike the contemptible attorneys I've hired in the past who simply take your money and plea you out, Attorney Mike Sherman, and attorney Nick, challenged the prosecutions evidence against me. With the added help of an expert witness, Mike had my penalties reduced to time served (I did 21 days of inpatient rehab at Greenbriar) and 6 months probation. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Funny story, Mike even had the police officer who arrested me saying he would hire Mike if he was ever in trouble. Without a doubt it was difficult going through this near 2 year long process, but Mike kept me informed every step of the way, which helped put me at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone going through a similar experience. Hands down, hiring Mike was the best decision I could have made.
