About me

"I am passionate about my work and my practice. I understand and can relate to our client’s disability because I suffered through Stage 2 cancer. I feel compassion for disabled people having experienced hard times and the dark reality of being unable to support oneself due to illness. It has now been 7 years for me and I survived cancer!" - Sharmine Persaud

    I endorse this lawyer. I had the good fortune to meet Ms. Persaud when we both represented an individual that had been seriously injured on a construction site. Besides getting my client a fabulous result on his workers comp case, she always proved to be courteous, respectful and extremely knowledgable about the controlling law. Since then I have referred numerous clients in need of a lawyer to handle workers comp or social security disability matters. On each such occasion, she has made the time to carefully listen to the client, perform a diligent inquiry into the relevant facts, and research the law, in a way that only a seasoned, skilled advocate can. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Persaud to anyone looking for a top notch lawyer to handle their workers comp or disability case!
