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
Dealing with a disability is never easy. Sheri has the patience and compassion to face facts and then help you understand options. She provided a ray of hope when things seemed pretty dismal. Sheri was recommended to me by a respected employee retirement association. i would send friends and family to her without hesitation. – 5/13/2017

Sheri led a productive discussion with members of the Northern Virginia Post-Polio Support Group. She immediately developed a rapport with her audience and demonstrated compassionate understanding of the issues facing the disability community. She delivered clear, concise information exhibiting a keen professionalism and expert knowledge in Social Security Disability appeals as well as the acquisition of Wills, Trusts, and POAs. I would highly recommend her services. – 11/10/2015
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
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
I have been to see Sheri Abrams several times. She is a Disability Lawyer, however,
she has done my Will, Power of Attorney and Medical Directive.
I also have used her to do Estate Planning for me.
I don't often write on Yelp, but I believe when a person excels at being able to
help people it should be recognized.
I would not hesitate to recommend her as a lawyer. – 1/18/2016
Sheri Abrams represented me in a Social Security Disability claim. She is a very smart and compassionate attorney who knows her stuff. She was always available on the phone, email and responded to my queries promptly. Above all she is a great human being who genuinely cares for her clients. I would definitely recommend Sheri as an excellent attorney. – 1/26/2016

Ms. Abrams is wonderful! kind, thoughtful, and understanding. She worked very hard for me so that, in spite of my difficult physiological conditions, I was approved for Social Security Security Disability Benefits without appearing at a hearing. A hearing would would have resulted in an extremely high level of panic and discomfort for me. On a scale of one to ten, she earns the highest rating. W. Christie Ms. Abrams was a pleasure to work with through the difficult process of obtaining benefits for our son. She is a master of the process itself, and is also a master of customer service. My husband and I recommend her without reservation. – 2/17/2016
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

Ms. Abrams is the best. I have been divorced for many years and a single parent of a son with multiple disabilities. I met with Ms. Abrams and immediately knew she was the best attorney to handle my request for guardianship. She listened to our needs and ensures the guardianship process was seamless. I would high recommend Ms. Abrams if you or a family have a disability and are seeking sound legal advise and excellent services. – 9/08/2017
I am a lawyer and have an effective way to find good lawyers. In this case, I combed through Virginia Continuing Legal Ed presentations and found a person who was clearly an expert because she presented in her specialized field to other SSDI lawyers. In our case, Sheri helped a family member with a fairly complicated SSDI case. She worked with us for a number of years, reviewed stacks of files, was always professional, patient, kind, and had great advocacy skills. Sheri is the kind of person you meet and think about later hoping they have all the best come to them because they work hard to help the underserved and needy. I highly recommend her. – 2/14/2017
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
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
Very accessible and straight forward. I was very pleased that I could email questions as they came up as my documents were being finalized. Sheri seems truly dedicated to this field and I have been quick to refer social workers and other parents of special needs children to her. – 6/21/2017
I am a fellow attorney in the community. I have both referred social security cases to Sheri and hired her when a need arose for a family member. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. Give her a call and she will tell you whether or not you need an attorney and if so, what the best course of action is. – 2/12/2017
Sheri recently created a Special Needs Trust for my handicapped brother. I could have gone to a lot of lawyers, but I’m glad I chose Sheri. She took the time to listen to my brother’s story so she could better shape the Trust. I would definitely work with her again. She actually gives lawyers a good name…. – 10/13/2017
Richard Weldon Davis
Sheri represented us in our guardianship case for our son Nick. She also drew up a 3rd party special needs trust.
The entire process could not have been any easier. Sheri was able to answer all our questions and put us at ease.
I highly recommend Sheri for any and all legal needs. – 5/28/2016
I can’t say enough good things about Sheri. Truly one of the most competent, knowledgeable and compassionate professionals I have engaged in the area of disability legal services. A 5-Star rating seems insufficient to express how happy and satisfied I am with the assistance she provided. Thank you, Sheri. Well done! – 11/13/2016
Sheri Abrams has been a godsend to us in the whole disability journey. She was recommended to me by a former coworker / friend, and by a friend who contacted one of her own clients for a recommendation in my area. When out of state lawyers know who to call … you know you have a winner. Sheri IS a winner!! – 9/21/2017
We were faced with a medical emergency that required legal assistance. Despite the short notice, Sheri met with us and prepared the required documents almost overnight. Sheri was professional, thorough and efficient in our dealings with her. I would wholeheartedly recommend Sheri to anyone needing legal assistance. – 8/01/2017
Sheri is absolutely amazing. Not only is working within the realm of disability law difficult since it is in a state of continuous change, but the issues that are brought in by clients are never simple. We were referred to Sheri and were absolutely thrilled with her professionalism, honesty, and ability to connect with us. Without a doubt, we will be back when we need further legal advice and have already referred her to a number of our friends. – 5/06/2017
I have consulted with Ms. Abrams over the past couple of years on a continuing Social Security Disability matter. She has always responded promptly and helped me with whatever questions I had at the time. I would highly recommend her and will continue to seek her advice with any continued questions I may have. – 10/01/2016
We were relieved to have found such a caring, knowledgeable, patient and experienced attorney to guide us through the SSDI process. Sheri walked us through each step, patiently explaining the process (sometimes over and over and over to us). We are happy that Sheri had no problem telling us like it is and shows genuine concern. We highly recommend Sheri. – 11/30/2016
Wow! Sheri Abrams knows her stuff!! Sheri is knowledgeable in all areas of her practice, and she has a compassion and humble strength that is exactly what one would hope for seeking legal help. Sheri is familiar with specific diseases and issues that can cause permanent disability, knows the legal system, and listens!! Sheri is very efficient and straight forward on what needs to be done for the specific situation. Sheri has also volunteered her time, which I have attended, to share her expertise in disability and special needs. Sheri is exceptional and I could not ask for an attorney with more knowledge and understanding. I absolutely recommend Sheri Abrams, and have done so to a number of people in need. Many blessings to Sheri indeed, and to all who need her. Thank you Sheri! – 3/15/2016
After having several back surgeries, a heart attack, open heart surgery and a chunk of my lung removed, two bad knees and a bad hip, I was STILL denied my disability. Sheri Abrams took over at that point and made a VERY difficult process REALLY easy. She took care of all the paperwork and ultimately got me my disability. I was SO thankful to her and how sympathetic she was to my situation. She always listened and took care to answer all of my questions. I would recommend her, and her alone, to anyone facing the gauntlet of government bureaucracy. She is also a great lady with a lot of class. – 7/20/2016
Sheri recently prepared a number of documents for us that enabled our family to face a medical issue with confidence. Her work was thorough, professional, and Sheri presented alternatives that we had not considered. We were very pleased with her professionalism and would recommend Sheri without any reservations. – 8/01/2017
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
