Virginia Social Security Disability & Special Needs Attorney

Sheri R. Abrams, Attorney At Law


Sheri has worked for over twenty-four years in the areas of Social Security Disability Law, Special Needs Planning, Elder Law & Estate Planning. Sheri’s niche-within-a-niche is Social Security Disability Law and the special needs area of estate planning (Special Needs Trusts & Guardianship), which require additional care and experience, to properly understand and meet the needs of the community involved. She is committed to her clients and their families and works to make sure that all of their needs are met and their rights are protected.


When clients meet with Sheri, they generally present problems beyond the need for a will or a power of attorney. As a Special Needs Planning Attorney, Sheri is familiar with the multifaceted aspect of this complex area of the law, as well as a network of services and providers who can assist her clients effectively.


Sheri has assisted hundreds of clients with their Social Security Disability appeals and special needs issues. She assists clients with guardianship cases in situations where an adult is not able to make decisions for themselves. Sheri also establishes Wills, Trusts & Powers of Attorney. Sheri has a solid record of professionalism, ethics and compassion for her clients. Sheri has spent her career working tirelessly on behalf of those in Northern Virginia who have not received their promised benefits or who have a special needs family member.

Testimonials

  • Matthew Stevens

       We engaged Attorney Abrams to assist with obtaining guardianship for our adult disabled child. Throughout the process, Attorney Abrams was professional, and demonstrated a high degree of competence and experience. She clearly has a passion for this work! We will engage her again, as we pursue further special needs and estate planning.  - 1/15/2018

       Sheri is amazing! She cares deeply about getting families what they need. She is incredibly knowledgeable and is able to explain even the most complicated aspects of the law in simple terms so that people can understand. Sheri has come to speak to our school a number of times and each time I learn something new from her presentation. She has helped so many families and I most highly recommend her!  - 4/11/2016

       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
