Columbus DUI Lawyer

A DUI can haunt you for the rest of your life — unless you enlist the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. I am Terry K. Sherman, a former prosecutor and veteran criminal defense attorney. Attempting to fight the charge on your own or pleading no contest will cost you far more in the long run.

Franklin County Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

People often fail to understand just what a profound impact a DUI can have. The consequences of a DUI are far-reaching. In addition to mandatory jail time and fines, a DUI can affect:

  • Auto insurance
  • Future employment opportunities
  • College enrollment
  • A driver's license

In a competitive job market, employers look for ways to narrow the field of candidates by conducting background checks. Employers are far more likely to reject a candidate with a DUI on that basis alone. Therefore, the effect that a DUI can have on your financial future far outweighs the cost of hiring an attorney.

For DUI cases, there is a 6-year lookback. In other words, if you were arrested on suspicion of DUI 6 years ago and were arrested in connection with the same charge today, today's DUI would be considered your second offense. Simply put, a DUI leaves an indelible mark that never fades. As a Columbus DUI attorney, I take forceful action to make DUI charges disappear.

I will investigate all aspects of your case to determine whether the police followed the law when they stopped you and administered the field sobriety tests. Backed by 40 years of experience and more than 300 jury trials, I have what it takes to provide you with an aggressive defense.
