Testimonials

  • Rich N.

       Sheri Abrams did an excellent job in preparing our Last Will and Testament along with the (5) other associated documents and directives. My wife and I were very pleased with her legal advise and personal recommendations for additions actions we may want to take to reduce the tasks our children will be expected to carry out at our deaths. Thank you Sheri and Ashley. God bless you both.  - 12/05/2018

       Ms. Abrams provided much-needed and well-organized advice concerning long-standing concerns within my family. She received a list of questions and concerns ahead of time and answered them knowledgeably and thoroughly. She was also well-prepared to answer additional questions raised during our conversation. She clearly has much knowledge and experience with all aspects of Social Security law and can speak from a frequent and diverse practice before these specialized tribunals. She set our minds at ease and gave us the necessary guidance for our next steps, in much detail. She has great communication and presentation skills, and I hope they can be utilized for further client education or even teaching purposes.

    It was a pleasure meeting her, and I look forward to recommending her practice to folks in her area. Thank you, Ms. Abrams, for your service to many clients in great need of help! Your care for them is obvious.  - 12/02/2018

       My Social Security Disability case had gone through the appeal process and had been denied. Now it was time to go before the judge. As always, everyone said, "No worries, you have a great case; you don't need a lawyer." Yeah right. My health issues were getting worse and the added stress was not helping. A friend of mine recommended talking to Sheri R. Abrams. Check her out you have nothing to lose. Best thing I ever did. She put me at ease. Took over my case and supported me right through the hearing. Guess what? We won!!! Thanks again Sheri and staff for all your support.  - 3/10/2018

       If you have applied or are going to apply to Social Security for Disability benefits, Ms. Abrams is definitely the way to go. True it took me 3 years but she explained the steps and made sure success was assured with an incredibly complex bureaucracy.  - 9/13/2016
