What Clients Say

Charged with DUI. Never been in trouble before. I am almost sixty years old. I go out with friends we had pizza and wine and thought I was ok to drive. I was not. Officer pulled me over for changing the lane wrong. It was humiliating. When I went to Sharon, her office is an oasis. Her folks working for her are skilled, kind and on top of what needs to be done. Sharon. I never met anyone quite like her. She is smart, I think gifted too. And her hair, brown Farrah Fawcett, curly, curly hair. I know that has nothing to do with her skill and still her presence , strong, no baloney, and down down to earth real. She iworked hard for me. When I would call her at times on weekends she answered and be as friendly as in her office. I am very glad I decided to go with her. she worked my case hard and I have no regrets. Her staff, well they adore her, genuinely and their care and work was lovely done.
J.V., a DUI client
From Start to Finish you could not ask for a better experiance. Sharon was very attentive to what I needed to do and to hear to make me feel at ease through the entire process. She maintained that things would work out and followed through with what she said she would. I can not ask for anymore than that.
Henry, a DUI client
Sharon and her team are amazing! When I got myself into a bad situation here recently, I contacted sharons office after realizing I had to appear that same afternoon, no questions asked, she was there for me. Sharon performed as a true professional, and an outstanding lawyer negotiating with the prosecuting attorney on my behalf. I would have been buried had it not been for Sharon, and her knowledge. The fact is, sharon reduced a very possible lengthy time of being incarcerated to no time what so ever. This to me, is amazing, and I am indebted to her for her knowledge, professionalism, passion, and true kindness. Thank-You Sharon!
