David Craig Sheldon

About me

I have dedicated my career to helping both the injured and the accused. My twenty-six years of experience encompasses work as a plaintiff's attorney for Cleveland personal injury firms (Stuart I. Garson, Jones Day Reavis & Pogue, and Smith & Condeni) and a Medina injury firm (John Cameron & Associates). I learned how to try criminal cases as a prosecutor at the busiest county prosecutor's office in the state, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office. I served as a prosecutor in Cuyahoga and Medina Counties. The Law Office of David C. Sheldon, established in 2005, has been helping clients obtain fair and reasonable compensation for their injuries and defending the rights of the accused in traffic, misdemeanor and felony matters.  I have won cases for injury and criminal clients in municipal and common pleas courts, courts of appeals and the Ohio Supreme Court. 

As an experienced trial attorney, you will have a dedicated, zealous, tenacious advocate on your side who will always place your best interest first. 

I am available to help you with your legal needs, day and night.

    I have known Dave for more than a decade and have always respected his work in the area of personal injury, so much so, that I have referred some of my clients to him when they experienced an accident and needed an attorney to protect them and fight for their interests. Outside the practice of law, David is also a good friend, father and family man who is trustworthy and honest.
