Mr. Sheridan is a solo practitioner, primarily in the area of Criminal Defense law, which includes dealing with police investigations and district attorney prosecutions. He handles personal injury claims, as well. There is no cost or obligation to find out whether he can help you, a family member, or a friend. Professional consultations are subject to arrangement. He represents individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life in typical Hall of Justice matters as well as the more serious cases. He’ll be happy to discuss fee arrangements that will be affordable to you. He will be happy to refer you to other counsel, if necessary.
If your call concerns someone who is under investigation, or has been arrested and has a court appearance coming up, or is in custody, it will be helpful to know when is the next court appearance and with which police department, district attorney office, court, or jail we're likely to be dealing.
While you are contemplating calling our office, please note that while there may have been exceptions where a person suspected of having committed a criminal violation has actually helped himself by talking to authorities, it is often of considerable importance not to discuss your matter with anyone further without the prior advice of counsel.
