Caleb

(I apologize in advance for my bad typing skills) This man was absolutely tremendous, I had a false OFP put against me from my ex-GF, she wanted to make me seem like a bad person and ruin my life where I would not see my kids for 2 years and it was an act of evil against me. I have never had a lawyer before and I took my chances with Randall Kins and prayed this was the lawyer to help me and he did tremendously. He was honest and respectful and professional to a T, he knew what to say and how to say it and had the face of a confident lawyer it really put my mind and heart at ease and my family to know he was that confident in the case and we WON, I get to keep my gun rights, see my kids with visitations and am no longer feeling down or depressed and I thank God for giving me a chance to meet an amazing man such as Randall Kins. Thank you so much Randall.

One year ago today, l stepped over a line l thought l would never cross again. It would have been a much, much worse experience without the help, expertise, and guidance provided by Jeff Sheridan and the team at Sheridan & Dulas. Where there was hopelessness, Jeff provided hope. Where there was embarrassment and guilt, Jeff was nonjudgmental and without bias. Where there was fear of the unknown, Jeff provided a calming presence. Where there was a lack of know-how and knowledge on my part, Jeff provided the requisite skill and expertise to navigate the complexities of our legal and judicial system. Where there was great stress and feelings of foreboding, he helped to alleviate that strain. Jeff gave me back a normal life.

Randall was extremely helpful regarding my DUI case. I had no idea how to precede or what to expect as this was my first offense. He gave great advice regarding my case and he never rushed anything and kept me updated along the way throughout the long process. He was able to negotiate to get my license back while we waited for the final ruling which was very helpful. I had a great outcome on my case and would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

I was unfairly charged with a domestic assault misdemeanor and I was really terrified. Attorney Randall took on my case and he was very transparent throughout each step. Knowing what to expect and what my options (good and bad) were was very helpful to me. Randall really advocated for me and even went further to ask other third parties involved to help prove my innocence. I will forever be grateful to him. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about your story and is willing to go the extra mile then please consider Randall to represent you. He is a real Shark and he is very persistent in ensuring the best interests of his clients.

Randall took what looked like an unwinnable situation and was able to reduce my DUI to reckless driving. I highly recommend retaining him. He talks to you straight and gives you the facts and what your options are.

I could not have asked for a better outcome with a committed lawyer. I would highly recommend Randall Kins to those who need the right representation. Thanks again Randall for the great job you have done.

Bruce

I hired Attorney Randall Kins for a criminal matter involving a Felony. Not only did Attorney Kins handle this matter in my favor but did without even a court appearance from me. He was upfront from the start and remained very professional throughout. Thank you Attorney Kins.

Peter

I am a retired college professor who ran into some legal issues late in life. I searched for and hoped to find a professional attorney, someone who is intelligent and knowledgable. The best thing I did was hire Randall Kins. He was not only intelligent and knowledgable, but he was well-versed in laws and courts and a nice, congenial attorney. I had two cases that Randall covered and both ended up very positively. I am in awe of someone who can maneuver their way through laws and the courts. Randall showed that he is well-trained and respectful. At every step, he was open and helpful and always kept me well-informed. My cases were somewhat unique and Randall waded through both of them. For neither case did I have to serve time in jail and it was because of Randall's skills and training and pure professionalism. I would encourage anyone to hire Randall. He is the real deal.

Mary

I met with Randall due to my 3rd Degree DWI charge. I was shaken, I was scared (because who wouldn't be). He made me feel at ease. He was very informative on how a DWI case goes, there are 2 cases to be fought out. When I told my peers about that, they were surprised because they didn't even know there were 2 sides to a DWI charge. He will fight tooth and nail to get every piece of evidence, study all that is given to him and make sure that you are satisfied with the outcome. I would just like to say that the outcome that I received on my case is the best that I could have ever hoped for. It went from a 3rd Degree DWI down to Careless Driving. I won my case with a lesser charge and I am truly happy about it. All this could not have been possible without the knowledge, trust, and hard work that Randall did for me.

Matthew

Randall listened to my case, gave me honest feedback, and helped me along the way. I was charged with a domestic, got the charged down to a misdemeanor and a minimal fine. The charge will also be removed after a year. Randall does an excellent job in negotiations in the courtroom. Is demeanor makes him a winner! Thanks Randall for all of your hard work and communication. Would highly recommend.

Domestic Assault

An accusation of domestic assault or violence can have a serious impact on your personal and professional reputation and lead to severe criminal penalties.

Boating While Intoxicated

Operating a vehicle while intoxicated, whether on land or water, is a crime, and if you are caught doing so you will likely face significant criminal charges.
