Defense lawyer
This wonderful lawyer is handling several needs for me and he is on top of his stuff. I needed the best lawyer I could find for the defense I needed and I was on a budget, but Jack P. Sherman still handled business beyond expectations. There is no other lawyer I would recommend.

I have an ongoing case,He is in it for the battle!!He calls me back!He texts if he can not call!He resonds any matter how many times i repeatedly texts w/concerns! My case was transferred from another division.There was some miscommunication;I did not receive the court summons & Mr.Jack did not contact me to come to court on expected date,I dont know if he even knew about the court date!I received a call from the bounty hunter/bails bondman that The court put out a warrant for my arrest!!Mr. Jack baby worked tireless w/the courts,He is up front & humorous @times even in middle of my horrible situation.The judge was very understanding,leniant & recalled the warrant.. ok fast forward,Y'all!! Heey!! I went to court July 31,2018.I returned home 30 minutes after appearing in court before the nice handsome judge!! I get a call from the fugitive task force Mr. M:he was very nice!!He asked when was i going to return to Memphis because i had unfinished business! Wheeet?? He said they were looking for me!@ huh?.. i said well i am cute!!So im sure he is/they are!I asked who is joking! Playing on my phone! He assured this wasnt a joke & that The fugitive task force is looking for me.. Y'all for the same situation above i just mentioned!A INDICTED WARRANT FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR IN MARCH 2018!! SCREEEEAMING,YELLING,BLOOD PRESSURE UP,BELL PALSY CRISIS.. WHEEET?? My lawyer & the judge HAD rescended the warrant back in April but Y'ALL somehow the RESCENDING OF THE warrant slipped thru the crack downstairs & stayed "on the wall" downstairs. SO THE WARRANT WENT TO THE GRAND JURY & SLIPPED PASSED THE JUDGE,HIS STAFF & THE BAILIFF: I STOOD BEFORE EVERY MONTH SHOWING UP IN COURT IN MAY,JUNE,JULY. THEY DIDNT EVEN KNOW ABT. IT. SMH.. The gentleman Of fugitive task force said it was an indicted warrant & looking at all the court dates of me showing up & that no one had said anything to me when i showed up in court. He knew it was a miscommunication as it had been issued on 7/20 & i was in court in Msy,June & on July 7/31. Again no one knew the warrant was active,had not been rescended downstairs & transferred to grand jury from the bailiff to even the judge of the court that i appeared before that day..The same court it was issued out of.The kicker although a mistake it was perfectly legal.I could be arrested. The warrant had a hold on the warrant meaning no bail,no release i would be held unti lmy court next date of Sept.18 almost 2months away.. I called Jack Sherman texted him,called him..texted him.. each time he responded.. answering or immediately calling back. Within 24hours he sent me a picture of paperwork having warrant dismissed!!He worked on issue while in court on other cases!!He satisfied me!!He worked with me!He did what i needed him to do!Yes, Now i need him to really focus l,be there & keep answering my questions!! Beast the rest of this case out!! Oh Im innocent of all charges!! First time in trouble trusting a friend,wrong place wrong time! Watch your associates!!Im pleased so far!! I will let u kno the update & HIS CONTINUED PERFORMANCE as my case progresses!! So FAR EXCEPTIONAL!!

This is the lawyer to use for criminal matters!
Jack Sherman is by far the best criminal attorney I've come across in Memphis! He's well respected at 201 Poplar & handled my case with dignity. He's a class act and was upfront with me about everything. My case was completely dismissed and I would recommend him to anyone needing representation for a criminal charge!

The best criminal defense lawyer in memphis
I hired Mr. Sherman on my fiance's criminal case. He was really straight forward and honest with me. He didn't sugar coat anything. He did everything that he said he would do. He was always available when needed and very helpful. I would recommend him to everyone needing help on a criminal charge. He won the case for my fiance and I couldn't be any more happy. He is great at what he does and I am thankful that I hired him. You should to! I give him a 99.9 out of 100!

This Attorney is by far the BEST!!!!!!!
After going through two attorneys that were awful, Jack worked hard and got me a great settlement on my automobile accident case. i was severely injured and Jack made me feel at ease and worked so hard to settle my case and he got an awesome result. I was so pleased and to this day he answers any legal questions I have. He is a really good honest & trustworthy attorney. I would recommend him hands down.

Really Good Lawyer In Memphis For Criminal
I hired him from ad in Yellow Book Pages. Pleasantly Surprised the way he went out of his way to make sure my case was dismissed and off my record, He was always on time to court and returned my calls promptly. I was very pleased with how he handled my case and he made it very low stress for me. I'm very thankful for him and was very lucky I hired him. He also handled a case for my friend and did an excellent job for her too! I would definitely use Jack Sherman again and refer him to others!

I hired Mr. Sherman on a misdemeanor DUI. He charged me not a lot of money 750.00 but that's because he didn't do crap on my case. He tried to get more money every time we came to court but I had to keep reminding him I paid him in full. He then tried to explain why he needed more money. He told me for $500 more he could get DUI dropped. I paid him and he told me not to worry that he would handle it. I thought that meant case was over. Four months later I got pulled over and had a warrant for missing court. He is a quack. A liar. I hired a new lawyer to handle the case and she got the case reduced to a reckless driving. Everybody at 201 Poplar laughed at me for hiring that clown. So beware of this attorney if you fall for his false advertisin like I did.

Don't waste your money
I hired him for a criminal charge for a friend of mines. Do not waste your money. In two court appearances, my friend spoke to him for a total of 30 seconds. He never went to the jail to visit him. He would have been better off using a public defender. Just continuations. Don't trust him with your life. Don't pay him to save your life, it would be cheaper to just jump off a bridge. When you call, he only wants to discuss money and then rush you off the phone when you want to discuss the case.

Don't use him.
I used Jack in a criminal case. Much like the other person, he always seemed to leave me having questions. My case should have been easily dismissed. I was only given a day to make a decision. I chose to take a plea, and now I have a record (a misdemeanor, but it's still a record). I had been in no trouble before (other than minor traffic tickets). I have been advised to turn him into the board of professional responsibility. To put it bluntly, a prosecutor called a person I know. They said they couldn't believe I had been arrested, charged, and indicted. That same prosecutor called him two days later to thank him for knowing me, because they had recused themselves from the case, since they were "close" to me. Don't use Jack Sherman!

Jack failed to inform me of the situation at every appearance and made me feel like i was not important to him.
Jack Sherman had a good first impression. I paid him up front. The second court date he did not even show or let me know anything in advance. He sent his friend to inform the judge that he couldn't make it. He always made me feel like I didn't have an option to a better outcome. After every court appearance I was left asking myself questions. He never explains to me in detail whats going on with my case. He likes to put you off and extend your court date. I had a very small charge that i have had to deal with for a year and am still dealing with it. The only good experience I had was having conversation with his receptionist. She was very welcoming and seemed to acknowledge me more than Jack Sherman. To this day my case has not been resolved. Jack wanted more money for the same case so I am now in search for a more trustworthy attorney.
