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.

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!!

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!

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.

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.

Michael Steven Sherman was worth every penny. Me and my boyfriend were extremely impressed with Mr. Sherman. He was upfront on all scenarios and his first instinct was right. 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!!

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.

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.
