The Law Offices of John Sheeran is different. Our priority is creating a defense strategy that is tailored to the unique facts of your case by personally meeting with you. We will review the evidence with you. Then we get to work. We investigate because things are often not what the government says, and we research the law because there are often ways to beat the charges without going to trial.
It’s not okay with us just to take the government’s accusations at face value. The police and witnesses may not have an accurate recollection of events. In some cases, they’re inexperienced and make errors. They may even not be entirely truthful in their reporting of events. That’s why we conduct our own investigation of events for every client.
We can reach out to witnesses to ask the questions that the police didn’t ask. With more than two decades in criminal law John has the experience to evaluate the investigation that was done in your case to identify law enforcement errors and witness inconsistencies.
DUI: Client charged with DUI and Hit and Run. John Sheeran got the case and went to work, interviewing witnesses, getting the insurance company photos, as well as 911 and police radio recordings. This investigation paid off and the case was totally DISMISSED once John exposed the poor investigation.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: Client charged with two counts of Assault in the Second Degree with firearm enhancements. He was facing 7 years in prison when John Sheeran was hired. Less than five weeks later the client was out of custody and back with his son. Pierce County Superior Court 19-1-00416-1.
PROPERTY CRIMES: Client charged with two felonies including Trafficking in Stolen Property. Because he had seven prior felony convictions, the prosecutor wanted to send him to prison for 13 months. John Sheeran came onto the case and exposed how the government couldn’t prove the case. The client got out of jail after serving only 68 days. Pierce County Superior Court 18-1-01943-7.
POLICE MISCONDUCT: When officers alleged an 18-year-old man threatened them, the client with no criminal history was charged with a felony and facing a life changing consequence. After investigating the case, John Sheeran got the charge completely DISMISSED.
If this careful assessment is not done, you could be rammed through the criminal justice system in a way that is convenient for your attorney, the prosecutor, and law enforcement, without a care for your interests.
