When the cops want to throw the book at you, call one of the guys who wrote the book!
We’ve Been On Both Sides
Mike Sherman spent 8 years as an Assistant Counsel to the Pennsylvania State Police in Department Headquarters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Part of that time was devoted to prosecuting liquor code violations on behalf of the State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. No one has a better understanding of the case against you — Mike Sherman knows both sides of PA DUI Law.
We Understand the Science
Mike’s time handling cases for the State Police gave him an insider’s view of the aspects of a DUI charge. Mike has traveled across the country learning the science surrounding blood and breath testing. Mike truly believes that knowledge is power. In the pursuit of an acquittal, he has the know-how to challenge blood and breath test results. He knows when your case requires an investigator, accident reconstruction expert, or an expert in blood or breath testing to show why you couldn’t have caused the accident that led to your arrest. He’s also certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, the same certification held by police officers nationwide.
Our Knowledge is Up To Date
Lawyers graduate, and then they get busy. Maybe some lawyers just get lazy. While continuing legal education is required, what that means to each individual attorney can vary widely. We take continuing education extremely seriously because it’s what keeps us relevant to our clients. That’s why we seek out some of the most prestigious, hands-on education options available to keep us on top of our game. Mike Sherman is the only attorney in Western Pennsylvania and one of only 4 attorneys in the state to attend a 5-day course at the prestigious Axion Analytical Laboratory in Chicago. There he worked in a lab learning how blood samples are tested and analyzed. It may be a bold statement, but it’s backed up by facts. Compare Mike Sherman’s educational background in Pennsylvania DUI law to that of any other lawyer in Western PA.
