Several years ago a developer proposed a land use that was acceptable to the local Planning commission. The proposed development would have been devastating.
Mr. Sherlock is the only reason that developer did not prevail and build his monstrocity. The local county seemed only concerned with the improved tax base and could have cared less about my neighborhood.
Mr. Sherlock took the developer's legal team to task before the county. He became personally involved in this, instead of simply viewing it as a paper shuffling exercise. His knowledge of the process and the law allowed him to force them to appear before the Land Use Board of Appeals. They defended the development well, but, each time Mr. Sherlock appeared, he won.
Mr. Sherlock's efforts won a major decision with statewide impact preventing this developer, and others of his ilk, from dropping these messy little developments all over Oregon.
I'm sure Mr. Sherlock has also done an excellent job representing corporate interests, but I am equally certain he did so without compromising his own integrity.
I do not hesitate to recommend Mr. Sherlock for any legal matter. If he is not right for the case he will see to it you get the right representation.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I had the pleasure of meeting Liam as opposing counsel on a case involving a conflict between boat owners down on the coast. I found Liam not only very thorough in his representation of his client, but also very well versed in the law. Even though we were on opposit sides of the case, I truly enjoyed working with him toward a resolution. I would recommend Liam to anyone. He will take very good care of you.
