Knowledge, Support and Human
After encountering a less than ideal situation I reached out to Bill to see if he would be able to help. His professionalism and knowledge were extremely comforting. I knew he would be able to help me. But more than that, he is a great person. He was comforting, honest, and very supportive. I would very much recommend him.

Bill Sherry helped me in a very tough time in my life and he was good life counselor to me when we meet or talk.
“Bill Sherry is a best attorney, honest and know what he is doing. He defenses me on a Domestic Abuse in Felony level. He explained to me everything and what to expect at the end of the case, he was a good counselor to me, even advised me to read this book “Stop Walking on Eggshells”, This book opens my mind and gives me a new beginning of my life. He is a straight talker who will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you exactly need to know. Sharing his experience. He really cared about my family(kids) and everything going on in this hard time. He talked to me through every scenario. He is a great lawyer, I highly recommend him, I had positive results and gives me a new hope and now we are happy again me and my family. He will always be blessed with his family. Amen

Fantastic Criminal Defense Attorney
Bill Sherry is a fantastic criminal defense attorney, who not only zealously defends his clients, but also genuinely cares about his client’s well-being. Facing criminal charges is one of the most scary and stressful situations an individual can experience; but being represented by Mr. Sherry with his 30+ years of experience, sound advice, and calm and collected demeanor allows the accused the ability to exercise their constitutionally protected rights. If you are ever facing criminal charges, I highly recommend you contact Bill Sherry.

He's the best!!
Hired Mr. Sherry for my DWI case, he did an amazing job getting me the best possible outcome. Matter of fact, my outcome was MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED. 100 TIMES BETTER than I expected. He always answered my calls, texts or emails. He eased my anxiety and fought for me in the courtroom. I highly recommend Mr. Sherry, he will not let you down.

Honest, diligent, & highly skilled
I was very pleased with the way Bill handled my case. He worked hard to prepare a good defense for me and I was ultimately acquitted of the charge. He is honest and knows very well how the legal system works. He displayed a great deal of confidence when working with me and he never gave up. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone.

Excellent Attorney--Excellent Person
I am an attorney in another state and hired Bill for a serious charge against my son. Neither I nor my son were easy clients! Bill was patient, thorough, experienced and fully up to the job. He cares and has the respect of the court which is VERY meaningful to a good resolution. He's a first class attorney and a first class person. As lousy as you feel being involved with the criminal law, your situation will improve with Bill on your side.

Highly recommend
Being completely unfamiliar with the legal system, Bill came to us via a referral. Upon meeting him, it was clear that he could provide the representation that we needed. He is intelligent, tenacious and very realistic. He walked us through the process in detail with experience and compassion. I would highly recommend Bill Sherry.

The Best
I was in some deep trouble. I contacted Bill and he went to work immediately. Bill is honest, thoughtful, thorough, well versed in the law, and diligent. I could not and would not recommend any other defense lawyer. I now consider Bill a good friend, not just a lawyer.

Traffic Violation
I was in a situation were I got a traffic citation and if I was convicted I would have lost my job. I contacted William Sherry and we met and he was up front that it did not look good and with what his fees would be. But we took it all the way to trial day and he was able to get the charge reduced to a violation that would save my job. I was very satisfied and would recommend him to anyone he will give it to you a straight about what your situation is and you options,

Excellent attorney and life counselor
Bill Sherry is a man of wisdom and integrity. He was my son's defense attorney on a drug charge, but he was so much more than that. He was a counselor to our entire family. He is a straight-talker who will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to know. Sharing his experience, he guided us through a nightmare and his compassion was remarkable. He really cared about what happened to my son and his future. He talked us through every scenario. It was not what I had expected, but definitely what we needed. I had no idea an attorney could have that much caring and compassion for a client. I told him he could be a life counselor if he ever left the law profession - but then again - why would he?? He is a great lawyer! I highly recommend him, and feel fortunate to have hired such a competent and compassionate person to defend my son. And yes - it was a good ending!

More Than Just A Lawyer
Bill changed my life. He was able to not only get me a lesser sentence from a judge known to be harsh, but he acted as a confidant and kind of a coach. The way he is able to empathize and speak about life situations will make you feel valued. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs a lawyer.

DWI case
Mr Sherry did a great job explaining to me everything that was happening, what was going to happen next, and negotiating my case. I would highly recommend to someone else, but hope I never need him again. :)

Amazing Attorney
So glad that Mr. Sherry was in our corner during this difficult time. He always took the time to make sure we understood everything and allowed us to ask as many questions as we needed to make sure we were making the right choice. I highly recommend him and will call on his help again if needed.
