After my positive experience with Mr. Sheridan and your firm, l have no hesitancy in recommending your services to others. I feel so fortunate that a kindly ER nurse steered me in your direction. l will forever be in your debt for all you have done to bring about a better than hoped for resolution to my case. If that nurse hadn’t referred me to your firm, l hesitate to think about how badly this could have played out.

Brian J.

Peter

I hired Randall Kins to clear up an old charge that was on my record for over 30 years. He was very quick, professional, and kept me informed of the status of his investigation. I was very pleased with his service.

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 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.

Mr. Kins was a fantastic attorney! I lived quite a distance from his office so most of the initial conversations were by phone which worked out wonderful for me since I requested it. Mr. Kins truly cared about me and my case and responded to all my phone calls no matter what time I called him. For someone who has never been in any kind of trouble, I was truly grateful for Mr. Kins. He explained everything to me and got me the best possible outcome I could have asked for. If anyone needs an attorney that will take a personal interest in your case and do the very best he can for you I highly suggest you hire Mr. Kins.

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.

Vanessa B.

They made a very difficult time for me as quick and as painless as possible.

DWI Defense

If you have been charged with a DWI, it may seem only thing to do is accept the accusation of a machine and plead guilty. It is far from your only choice. At Sheridan, Dulas & Kins, P.A., we don't seek plea deals for DWI charges. We will actually fight your DWI charges with the aim of a not guilty verdict.

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. In addition, there are serious hidden collateral consequences, such as a lifetime ban on the possession of firearms. You should not ever try to face these charges alone.

Juvenile Defense

A juvenile record will adversely impact your child’s future opportunities, including educational opportunities that are so critical to their future. We understand that your child means everything to you, which is why we will build a vigorous defense on your child’s behalf.

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. In addition, you will face driver's license consequences regardless of whether the craft you were piloting even required a license. An experienced attorney at Sheridan, Dulas & Kins, P.A. can help you fight your BWI charges.

Expungements

A criminal record can have major impact on your ability to seek an education, get a job, and secure housing. With the help of one of our experienced lawyers, you may be eligible to seal your record through an expungement.
