Columbus Mayor's Court Lawyer

Depending on the crime you are charged with, you may be required to appear in mayor's court. I am criminal defense attorney Terry K. Sherman. Over the past 40 years, I have conducted more than 300 cases in courts at all levels, including mayor's court.

Cases that are often tried in mayor's court include:

Mayor's court is different in that it is informal, and as a defendant, you will be treated informally. Just because the setting is informal, however, does not mean you should go to mayor's court without a lawyer. If you attempt to represent yourself and lose, you can have a conviction on your record for the rest of your life. You can appeal, but it is likely that your appeal will be unsuccessful.

Franklin County Criminal Defense Attorney

To successfully emerge from mayor's court without a negative consequence, take it seriously and treat it with the same formality you would in a traditional court setting. That means having a lawyer by your side. When I argue a case before mayor's court, I do not take it lightly. I approach it with the same thoroughness and aggressiveness that I employ in any other case.
