About Me

I enjoy competition, whether I am involved in trials, negotiations or arbitrations or various athletic pursuits.  I am an avid tennis player and enjoy singles and doublesl, personal training and photography.  I also enjoy travel, photography, reading, music, movies and theater.  I try to spend as much time as possible socializing with my family, friends and acquaintences I meet through varous activities. It is always a bit of a stretch to have the time to do everything that I enjoy and to aintain professional excellence in my law practice.

  • Eric L. Pines

    Mr. Sherman is the type of lawyer that all lawyers should aspire to be. He is highly skilled, honest and ethical. These character traits are not found together as often as they once were but Mr. Sherman is the type of true professional that existed more often in previous generations. I have chosen him as a mentor in the field of Labor and Employment Law because of his years of experience and expertise and the fact that he always makes time for his clients and students. I highly recommend him to any individual client or labor union. If you hire him I am confident you have hired a lawyer who is amongst the best in his field. His skill, dedication to his client and high ethical standards make him a great choice as an attorney.
