Terry Sherman, The best of the best!
Terry Sherman is one of, if not the HARDEST WORKING DEFENSE ATTORNEY you will ever come across. Terry and his team give more to their clients than you can imagine. There is no such thing as giving 100% with Terry Sherman. This man puts 500% of himself into his clients. Not only does he give all he had (and then some), he treats you like a human, with real care and Thoughtfullnesss. You are not just "Another case or Another paycheck". To watch this man and his team work is Equivalent to watching the Creation of the World. It is so amazing to see how this man's mind works. We are so very Thankful, Greatful, and Appreciative of what Terry and his team has done for us to get our life back. Thank you Terry Sherman and your team! God Bless! Kelly,Kindra, Kourtnee and Kacy Ray

Best Attorney
I have worked with many attorneys both professionally and personally!!!!! Attorney Terry Sherman is by far the best. Attorney Sherman has a very personal balanced approach, and works well with prosecutors, probation/ parole departments, judges, and family members!!!!!!!!!!! This guy is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! My son was facing 14 years, and attorney Sherman was able to work with everyone involved and still hold my son accountable!!!!! I’m an African-American male and my family and I have had an awesome experience with attorney Sherman, the prosecutor, the probation department, and the judge!!!!!!!!!!!

Terry Changed My Life
At only 20, I had gotten myself in a situation which would have been detrimental if convicted. Then I found Terry. He not only got my charges reduced, keeping me out of prison, he also helped me seal my record when I was eligible. He knows his stuff & he will fight for you tooth and nail. He will not judge you but he will be a straight shooter. But here I am now, 8 years later and I am licensed in insurance with the state and have been able to live the life I’ve been waiting for. I can’t thank Terry enough for what he’s done for myself and my family. I owe him everything.

The Best Criminal Lawyer in Columbus, Ohio
I had heard about the good quality of work of Terry Sherman for years before I had to retain him. I had heard previous praises from past clients, read news articles, and reviews prior to retaining him. I retained him on two separate occasions, and he is the very best! Terry is honest, full of knowledge and experience, a true beast in the court room, and highly respected by those is the legal system and in the community! If I had not obtained him, my family member would have been a pawn in the system and I would not have the peace that I have now.
