Important considerations when hiring a defense attorney:
Does your defense attorney make you a priority?
You have a thousand questions. You might be losing sleep, you’re stressed out, maybe you’ve never needed a defense attorney before. You want someone to represent you in the best way possible and get the best outcome in your case. You need a lawyer who is going to be aggressive in the courtroom and keep you informed.
Terry Sherman has been selected by the National Trial Lawyers as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer. We have represented clients from high profile prosecutions with significant media attention to traffic offenses such as DUI and reckless driving. Attorney Sherman will fight for your freedom, your future, and your reputation.
Is the attorney’s practice focused exclusively on criminal law?
Any lawyer with a law license is technically allowed to represent anyone in any kind of case. This is why you’ll see a lot of attorneys who work in the area of “General Practice”. They know a little about a lot of things.
When your freedom and reputation are at stake, nothing beats the experience of having handled hundreds of cases similar to yours and knowing exactly what approach to take.
At the Law Office of Terry Sherman, criminal defense is ALL WE DO.
Who in the firm will be handling my case?
All too often the accused will retain a reputable lawyer, and when the Court date arrives they are nowhere in sight. Instead, you are represented by the lawyer’s inexperienced associate.
When you hire Terry Sherman, you hire a professional criminal defense attorney who has tried over 480 jury trials, and that is who will be standing by your side throughout the entire process.
Does the attorney offer a free initial consultation?
It’s extremely important to sit down and have a face to face meeting with your lawyer in order for them to properly evaluate your case and get a complete understanding of all the facts. During our initial case consultation we will review:
- The charges against you and the specific facts of your case.
- The details if the arrest itself: conversations, police interactions, and possible rights violations.
- Your criminal history, if any.
- Your employment and pertinent life history.
Once the consult is complete, defense attorney Sherman will develop a winnable defense strategy, provide you with a fair legal fee quote.
At the Law Office of Terry Sherman, a free case review/consultation is always provided.
