David C. Sheldon is a Medina injury and criminal lawyer who continues to focus his practice on personal injury and criminal law for more than 32 years. He grew up in Medina, Ohio and is well-known in the community. His father also practiced personal injury law in Medina and Cleveland in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Mr. Sheldon watched his father’s success in the courtroom and decided to attend Cleveland Marshall College of Law. He clerked for the personal injury firm of Stuart I. Garson & Associates during law school. Since graduating from law school, he has been a Medina injury attorney devoted to upholding the rights of the citizenry and helping the seriously injured obtain fair and just compensation from juries of their peers.
He began his criminal work when he served as an assistant prosecuting attorney for the Cuyahoga and Medina County Prosecutor's Offices from 1988 to 2000. In 2000, he left the prosecutor’s office and began doing criminal defense work in addition to his personal injury practice. He won acquittals and dismissals of individuals accused of rape, witness intimidation, aggravated burglary, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, OVI, and felonious assault. He has argued cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, the Ohio Supreme Court, and several appellate courts. This Medina and Strongsville criminal defense attorney’s experience has taught him how to build strongcases.As a result, he has built a successful practice in OVI, criminal defense, and personal injury, probably winning more OVI dismissals than any other attorney practicing in Medina today.
Mr. Sheldon is an experienced Medina lawyer, passionately dedicated to protecting the rights of his clients who are facing a criminal charge. As the government continues to enact laws that erode our rights to fair trials, just compensation, and protection from unreasonable searches and seizures, Mr. Sheldon will continue to battle the government and advocate the rights of the common man.
