Above and Beyond
Ms. Lewis really aided me in my case in Rockwall County. Even though it was merely a motion to adjudicate guilt, she was still able to get a more than fair sentence on such short notice. With these troubling times, no one wishes to be incarcerated longer than truly necessary. Due to a hiccup in my past, I needed to get ahold of some paperwork from another state and county of a disposition to finalize good time. An attorney’s most precious asset is their time and she truly went above and beyond to ensure I was able to obtain what was needed. Her tenacity and word are things to count on. Thank you, so much Ms. Lewis again! Sincerely Sal G.

Resolved On 1st. Court Date
Ms. Lewis promptly returned my phone calls (personally) instead of a paralegal. I contacted & retained Me. Lewis two days prior to my daughter's court date and explained the circumstances & urgency to resolve the matter quickly & if possible on the 1st. Court Date. Ms. Lewis arrived at the courthouse promptly (before us), & had negotiated an awesome plea agreement w the prosecutor! We gladly accepted & my daughter's theft case was dismissed, leaving her with 18 months probation for false ID. My daughter received a job offer but it was on hold pending the outcome of her court appearance. She is now back in New hire status & is doing quite well for herself. I highly recommend Ms. Lewis as a no nonsense attorney who quickly & carefully gets the job done for a very reasonable fee!

Sheridan Lewis achieved good results for me
Summary review: Sheridan Lewis achieved a dismissal in my 2013 Dallas county DWI case. I am very pleased and thankful for Sheridan Lewis and how she handled my case in the Dallas county court system. Full review: After receiving a DWI in Dallas county I began searching for attorneys to handle my case. I went to several big name, tenured DWI attorneys but felt like my case was being handled like a cattle call and they just wanted me to take a deal in the case, pay my legal fees and move on. I also met with some up incoming, “fast talking” younger DWI lawyers that just didn't seem take care of the case on a personal level. I interviewed with six different lawyers and didn't have a good feeling with any of them. I actually found Sheridan Lewis on Avvo and decided to meet with her. When we first met, I described the situation and told her my desired outcome. Sheridan took the time to get to know me and truly understand the case and it's curcumstances. Right away, Ms. Lewis knew what questions to ask me to help in building a defense case. I could really see a deference from the other attorneys I met with and signed for Sheridan Lewis’ legal services the next day. My case had evidence against me but also happened to have some significant evidence that was in my favor. Ms. Lewis found these vulnerabilities right away and began to pursue filing motions to suppress within the court system. During the handful of times I spent in court with Sheridan Lewis, I could tell she was well known, respected in the Dallas county courthouse from the clerks, to the judges and in between. The fight in this case took about two years, so it takes some time and patience to achieve the result you want sometimes. In the end, I received a conditional dismissal which I was gladly accepted! I truly believe my case wouldn't have been handled as carefully and personally with the other attorneys I interviewed as it was with Sheridan Lewis. Thank you Sheridan!

Thank you Sheridan!!!
After dealing with not one, but two different attorneys in regard to a DWI in 2013, neither of whom I felt did their job, I was finally referred to Sheridan by a friend. Sheridan has done EVERYTHING she's told me she would do. She always returns my calls and keeps me informed on everything going on regarding my case. In the midst of a difficult situation, Sheridan has been honest, trustworthy and dependable, not to mention very fair about price and payment arrangements. I hope to not need a trial attorney ever again but should the need arise I wouldn't want anyone but Sheridan to represent me. If you need a great attorney, you NEED Sheridan Lewis!!!!

Sheridan made my life easier and saved me mucho dinero.
I called Sheridan about what I believed to be an abdsurd traffic ticket. The fine was going to cost me over $550... Sheridan was able to get my fine reduced to next to nothing. Pays to have someone like Sheridan one your side.

DWI Dismissed
I received a DWI dismissal after over a year of fighting. Sheridan left no stone unturned to win this case for me. I was lucky that her will to win this small case was as strong as her will to win her big cases. She put a lot of time and effort into winning my case and I am thankful. Thanks again Sheridan!

Helpful & Hardworking
Sheridan helped me through a difficult case. She kept me informed on what was happening throughout the five month ordeal and was always available when I had questions. She made it clear that my case was important and her passion was evident. Dependable, stable, and trustworthy.

A New Respect
Sheridan has shown me that everything isn't about money. She openly gave me excellent advice before I retained her, she didn't know if she would hear from me again. I have a new respect for attorneys. Even though she kept me informed there were things she was doing behind the scenes for the good of the case.

Wonderful and Knowledgeable Lawyer!
Sheridan was great and always there when needed! I would highly recommend her firm in handling just about any legal advice and needs. She is my first go-to with questions and concerns. Knowledgeable, trustworthy and accessible. A+!

Sheridan Lewis represented me in a DUI case
Sheridan was very responsive and informative which is huge to me. I never once felt in the dark about my case. She is naturally demanding in the court room and she knows the law very very well. I have already recommended her to anyone I know who might be in trouble. I can't say enough or thank her enough for what she did for me.

Outstanding Attorney
Ms. Lewis exceeded my expectations! I felt confident with her representation. She was knowledgable and kept me informed, and made me aware of all possibilities in my case. Ms. Lewis made precise, accurate decisions in my case that proved well. My case was dismissed. I couldn't be happier with the outcome! I have since recommended her to another friend, and highly recommend her to anyone who gets into a bad or compromising situation. Very pleased.
