Testimonials

  • Peter Miller

       Sheri provided a very personal approach to our Estate Planning. She is very knowledgeable about disability issues and my wife and I enjoyed the time we spent with her.  - 12/12/2017

  • Pamela Blum

       We are so grateful we found Sheri Abrams. Having been diagnosed with an chronic illness it became impossible for me to work. Sheri walked us through the steps and gave us wonderful council in getting a disabled decision in court. It was not an easy process. It took some time. Sheri was patient, understanding, respectful, and a well of knowledge. Because of her firms hard dedicated work, we are now free of the additional stress of our financial well-being. I highly recommend Sheri Abrams firm.  - 10/11/2018

  • Joel Michael

       Sheri took care of everything, making the process easy. Communications were prompt. She spoke with me multiple times, some calls were 30+ minutes, answering all my questions without charging me additional hours. I have worked with many attorneys and that was a first!  - 3/19/2019

  • Denise S.

       Sheri Abrams did an excellent job for my brother and I in developing our our estate planning documents. She was very thorough in leading us through the various decisions that need to be made, particularly the "what if" scenario's that may occur as we age. Documents she prepared for us were our wills; power of attorney; medical power of attorney; medical directive; etc. These documents were done in timely manner; and she explained who needs copies. We left assured that she will be there should we have any questions or need future legal advice or guidance. It is nice to know you have professional like Sheri on your side! I would recommend her to anyone getting their estate planning documents prepared.  - 7/16/2016
