Jeffrey S. Sheridan of Sheridan & Dulas, P.A.—one of the most recognized and respected criminal defense lawyers in the state—has a long list of successes in Minnesota’s courts. His achievements include an impressive list of landmark U.S. and Minnesota Supreme Court decisions, resulting in the courts striking down major portions of DWI laws as unconstitutional.
Sheridan’s innovative arguments and tenacious nature have proven successful in trial courts, courts of appeal, and before the United States Supreme Court throughout his 33-year career. In addition to being included in The Best Lawyers in America© list every year since 2007, he was named the Best Lawyers® DWI Defense “Lawyer of the Year” in Minneapolis in 2013 and 2019. He’s also been repeatedly recognized by Minnesota Super Lawyers and was named an Attorney of the Year three times by Minnesota Lawyer.
Sheridan believes that a lawyer should not just stand next to you while you plead guilty. A good lawyer fights to protect your rights and fights to win every time. His philosophy is simple: “I don’t judge you. I don’t lecture you. I defend you. Period.”
If you’ve been stopped for DWI and had your license revoked, Sheridan counsels: “See a lawyer immediately. The worst thing you can do is wait until your first court appearance. Important rights that may determine the ultimate outcome of your case will disappear soon after your arrest.”
