    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 from the first moment I met her portrayed an honest attitude and would tell me like it is no matter what. She is very thorough and was very accessible throughout the whole process if I had any questions concerning my disability case.”  – 11/04/2015

    Tamara Feliciano

    Sheri helped us with Social Security problems and Guardianship. When I hire a lawyer I want someone who is straight forward and a fighter . Sheri is all that and more.  – 10/15/2016

    James B.

    Sheri helped us attaining guardianship of our autistic son. The process was incredibly effortless because of her… it all went down just as she said it would and so smoothly we asked "is that it?" at the end of it. She was very knowledgeable of the process throughout and was able to answer every question we had as we had it, none of that "I’ll look it up" or "I’ll get back to you" stuff. Anyone looking to get the guardianship process done without any hassle, I highly recommend Sheri.  – 12/31/2018

    Jennifer OConnor

    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

    John Sturman

    Sheri is very knowledgeable and professional. She was very helpful in working out our guardianship. It was an efficient process.  – 10/29/2017

    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

    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

    Olivia Alegria

    Vito Menzella

    Sheri and team developed two Special Needs Trusts for me, and answered many questions along the way. The process was informative, and very timely. I’d recommend to anyone needing a SNT to work with Sheri, as her depth of knowledge on the subject is most impressive.  – 8/09/2019

    Sean Niles

    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

    Judd Fuoto

    My dealings with Sheri were fantastic. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and fantastic to work with during guardianship proceedings for a loved one. We were so pleased with her service that we went back to Sheri for a Special Needs Trust.  – 6/13/2017

    Debi S

    Sheri has been extremely helpful to us in making future plans for my husband and I, and our disabled adult child. It can be very difficult to unravel all the regulations and requirements with regards to Social Security and disability planning. Our son receives SSI and Medicaid and it is important to us that we make the best decision for his (and our) futures. We appreciate her care, concern, and expertise. She is very patient and knowledgeable, and we highly recommend her.  – 10/25/2019

    B G Christie

    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

    Laura B

    Sheri exceeded my expectations and delivered as promised. She clearly knows her way around disability benefits, how to go after what is reasonable, and prepares her client through out the entire process. I highly recommend her,  – 6/13/2016

    Sheri helped my husband back in 2007. She was a great source of info & comfort back then. Thank you for helping our family.  – 3/21/2017

    Peggy S.

    Wonderful service! I started the process of obtaining legal guardianship of my mentally retarded brother last summer. The first lawyer I hired forgot about me, so I fired him. Went to the ARC website and found Ms. Abrams. She made everything so easy, working over the phone and email (since I live out in Warren County). Fee was set, so nothing to worry about later. She answered my questions almost immediately. Ms. Abrams made everything easy for me, especially since my Dad passed shortly before our court date. My brother & I showed up at court, met Ms. Abrams for the first time! Went into court, judge granted guardianship, We said "Thank You, Your Honor" without having to explain anything, then over to the probate office quickly, and we were out of there! Don’t look elsewhere – Hire Sheri Abrams! She also has a GREAT website, with lots of very helpful articles.  – 5/01/2019

    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

    I have consulted with Ms. Abrams over the past couple of years on a continuing Social Security Disability matter.

I would highly recommend her and will continue to seek her advice with any continued questions I may have.  – 10/01/2016

    A M.

    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

    Wendy S

    Sheri R Abrams did an awesome job preparing Guardianship for our 18 year old twin boys who have autism. She was very knowledgeable and relatable. We would highly recommend her to anyone who has to go thru this process. Thank you Sheri!  – 11/25/2019

    Susan Phillips

    Sherri is well informed about the way special trusts need to be written to help those with special needs retain their social security benefits. She’s easy to work with and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend her services.  – 3/04/2019

    E M.

    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

    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

    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

    Stuart Saltzman

    Sheri was very helpful and really knows her specialty- She helped us get my Nephew on disability and is now helping us keep him on disability as well as create a special needs trust. something very few attorneys know how to do  – 10/03/2016

    Terry Harler

    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

    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.

    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

    Joseph Zimmer

    I owe Sheri everything. She went to bat for me at my disability hearing. I thought all was lost but Sheri did not give up. To make a long story short we won my case. I would recommend Sheri to anyone in need of an excellent Social Security Lawyer. Thanks again Sheri!!!  – 10/15/2016

    Mary K.

    We were quite impressed with the Sheri Abrams Law Office. We used Sheri to prepare two Special Needs Trusts. One was required for retired military pension survivor benefits. Our appointments were on time and the legal expertise was worth the cost. I will use Sheri Abrams again.  – 10/18/2017

    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
