A Practiced Hand In Oklahoma Criminal Defense
Being charged with a criminal offense in Oklahoma can be scary. Even a relatively low-level misdemeanor could impact your freedom, your finances or your community standing. Representation as a defendant can make the difference between having the opportunity to rectify a mistake or a misunderstanding or suffering penalties that are far harsher.
I am Sheila Shoemake, founder of Shoemake Law Firm. I have worked as a public defender, so I have extensive experience in defending clients facing a range of state or local-level charges. I am diligent in doing research for your case and persistent in seeking negotiated solutions if that is possible. Throughout my career, I have established myself as an aggressive litigator for my clients.
My family has been involved in the legal system for three generations. My brother is a lawyer, my father practiced law for many years in Pawhuska, and my grandfather was a judge in Bryan County. I have seen how proper legal representation can assist those faced with criminal charges or those grappling with a family law matter such as divorce.
Protecting Your Due Process Rights, No Matter What The Charge Is
As a defense attorney, I work with clients faced with both misdemeanors and felonies. Some of the charges I have handled include, but are not limited to:
- Domestic violence
- Drunk driving offenses
- Sex offenses
- Drug offenses
- Theft offenses
- Violent crimes
- Victim protective orders
- Petty larceny
- Traffic violations
When I represent you as a client, I listen to your side of the story, examine the prosecution’s evidence against you and search for innovative solutions that will provide the most optimal outcome for you. I have an excellent rapport with many district attorneys due to my previous public defender work, which enhances my ability to negotiate on your behalf.
Providing you peace of mind about your case is important to me, and I will work diligently to minimize the stress involved with the criminal defense process. I settle most cases, but I will not hesitate to fight for your rights in a trial. No matter how far your case goes, I will give your case the personal attention and aggressive defense it deserves on your behalf.
