Sheri has worked for over twenty-four years in the areas of Social Security Disability Law, Special Needs Planning, Elder Law & Estate Planning.

Testimonials

  • Kathleen Boyer

       I did a lot of research and talked to many lawyers in the Washington metro area when I was working to resolve a potentially disabling medical issue this year. Sheri was by far the most personable and articulate of all of them.
    She focused on the relevant issues and did not try to sell me legal options I did not need.

    Her rates are the best in the DC area for high quality professional services in elder law, estate law and disability law. Her common sense approach was really refreshing and I did not walk out of her office with more questions than I had walking in. I now feel informed and equipped with the right information and defensible tools in place for whatever the future brings.

    Sheri operates out of an office building that supports a coffee and gift shop run by persons with disabilities. It creates a lively and warm hearted atmosphere and demonstates Sheri's involvement with the disabled community. Lovely person.  - 8/14/2017

  • John G

       The legal issues associated with Special Needs Trust had concerned us for years, so we were greatly relieved to find Ms Sheri Abrams, Attorney at Law. She is a remarkably-gifted special needs attorney. She skillfully guided us through the process of completing a Special Needs Trust for our daughter. We could not have been more pleased with her work and her guidance to us going forward. Sheri fully understands the law specific to those with special needs and disabilities, and we were grateful, indeed, to find her. Our daughter is the very center of our lives, so we would not have entrusted the legal matters of her life to anyone else. We are pleased to enthusiastically recommend Ms Sheri Abrams to anyone seeking expert legal counsel for special needs and disabilities.  - 6/20/2016

  • Steven Phillips

       Sheri Abrams and her staff were phoeminal in assisting me with a special needs trust. I had called multiple lawyers in several states and ultimately decided to go with Abrams. I’m extremely glad I did, she and her staff were precise and efficient. Highly recommended if you’re in need of her services.  - 12/19/2018

       I can't say enough good things about Sheri Abrams. She has helped me with
    several legal issues. I have also recommended Sheri to several people and they
    all called me and told me how pleased they were dealing with Sheri Abrams.
    I would highly recommend Sheri.....check out her website to see what her specialties are.  - 10/09/2015

  • Susan Seiler

       I contacted Sheri after my disability application was denied and it was time to appeal.
    From the onset, it was clear this is not her first rodeo. She is all business at first meeting -- I encourage you to take this as evidence of Sheri's long experience and excellent track record.
    Sheri ALWAYS returned my calls, she communicated clearly and made sure I understood what was going on. It was easy to forget that she has many other clients with the same worries and anxiety.  - 10/16/2017
