Ohio Criminal Defense Lawyer

As a criminal defense attorney with more than 40 years of experience, I have handled crimes ranging from misdemeanor marijuana possession to high-profile murder cases. I have tried more than 300 cases in both federal and state courts. I am Terry K. Sherman, and I have been practicing criminal law in Ohio since 1978.

The types of cases I handle in my criminal law practice include:

  • DUI: Whether you were recently arrested on suspicion of your first DUI or your fifth, I will work to ensure that you do not pay too heavily for your mistake.
  • White collar crimes: I defend clients accused of crimes such as mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, embezzlement and mortgage fraud.
  • Theft: If you have been charged with shoplifting, robbery or burglary, I will aggressively defend your freedom.
  • Drug crimes: I represent clients accused of possession, possession with intent to distribute and other drug-related crimes.
  • Crimes on campus: College students often make mistakes that get them into trouble, but such mistakes should not derail their futures entirely. I defend young people accused of underage drinking, date rape, assault and other crimes that commonly occur on college campuses.
  • Sex crimes: Crimes involving, sexual battery and gross sexual imposition, child pornography and importuning, rape and child molesting require an aggressive defense strategy.
  • Mayor's court: Cases that appear in mayor's court typically involve crimes such as domestic violence, marijuana possession, underage drinking and traffic violations.
