My law firm operates with a commitment to aggressively seek justice, and further the legitimate interests of every client through the ethical, effective and honest application of the law.
As a criminal lawyer, I utilize my experience as a former assistant district attorney and former police officer to build you a solid defense.
You can depend on me to vigorously defend your rights in court.
I have extensive trial experience due to my background as an assistant district attorney.
This allows me to view your case from a defense and prosecutorial standpoint.
Additionally, I have a strong understanding of police procedures and their practices.
This can be a valuable asset when evaluating the strength of the prosecution's case against you, as well as the extent of the police officer's actions during the investigation or while making the arrest.
Divorce and family law cases are handled with sensitivity and respect, serving the best interests of each client.
This includes protective services. I file emergency petitions and protection from abuse (PFA) actions on behalf of clients whose family law matter endangers their well-being.
I am a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and of the Dauphin County Bar Association, where I served two terms as a member of the Board of Directors.
I have been a guest lecturer at The Pennsylvania State University's Dickinson School of Law and have guest-lectured Magisterial District Judge continuing legal education.
I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and have been named to Who's Who in American Law 2005-2006, 2007-2008, 2009-2010 and 2011-2012 editions.
The Law Office of J. Michael Sheldon upholds the highest ethical and professional standards.
I am dedicated to providing you with legal solutions that offer the greatest possible benefit to you and your family through the ethical, effective and honest application of the law.
