I retained Sharon after being charged with a felony assault with a deadly weapon charge in 2014. She worked nonstop on my case for close to a year and it resulted in a plea bargain that lowered my charge from a strike offense to a non-strike offense. My case never went to trial and I served no jail time. I now must complete probation and community service when I was looking at years in prison initially. Sharon provided great guidance and counsel and I highly recommend her services.
When Sharon was hired she was only given two weeks by the Judge to prepare to represent me for my preliminary hearing in a felony case (due to excessive continuations by the DA and my previous attorney). In the shortest of time she fought ethically and got the bail reduced by a million dollars. Then she continued to fight getting the entire case dismissed completely. I thank God for her efforts and zeal. Sharon is far above average and is afraid of no fight.
If you need a lawyer for a case involving domestic violence, I highly recommend you hire Sharon Appelbaum. I was falsely accused by my abuser and Sharon worked hard on my case until the charges against me were dropped. She is an excellent lawyer who really knows both the law and court procedures as well as the difficulties domestic violence survivors endure. She is as steady as a rock, which made me feel safe for the first time in a very long time! She went over and above for me!
Sharon was extremely helpful throughout my case. After our first conversation over the phone, there was no doubt in my mind that she was a confident, intelligent, and compassionate lawyer that was going to do everything in her power to help me. Sharon is a great communicator, easy to talk to, and efficient in every way, shape and form. I’m lucky to have had her on my side.
