About Sherwin

Learn Sherwin’s areas of practice.

I am currently an Associate at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. where I deal with auto and premises liability cases.  My last position was at GEICO Staff Counsel, where I practiced in No-Fault arbitrations and insurance defense litigation since July of 2009.  As a senior attorney, I handled all personal injury suits from start to finish, achieving an undefeated trial record.  In giving back to my community, I volunteer my time as a member of my condomiinum board and am an active member of the New Jersey Association for Justice, New Jersey Asian Pacific American Lawyers Assocation and the National Asian Pacific Bar Assocation.  I also served as a member of the Montclair Zoning Board from January 2012 through December 2014 where I heard variance applications and deliberated on either approving or denying said applications.  In my spare time, I enjoy snowboarding, travel, and a round of golf when the weather permits.

Excellent and Admirable opposing counsel
Tenacious and congenial as an opposing counsel. Always goes to bat for his client while remaining professional with opposing counsel. Passionate about the law and respects his peers.

Former adversary
Sherwin had been an adversary of mine on dozens of cases, if not hundreds. He is known for his integrity, honesty, decency, and ability. While he is exceptionally knowledgeable and was always very well prepared, what I found most impressive was his ability to think quickly and counterpunch, so to speak, when it came to actually arguing a case. One needs to be highly prepared in order to do this,but thinking on your feet is a skill but you either have or you don't. And Sherwin has it.

He knows accident law from both ends of the spectrum
Sherwin is an elegant professional with a keen eye for the law. If he takes your case, he believes in it and will work it to sweet fruition. His competitive advantage is the years he spent in house with the defense. He knows their playbook and the games they play to minimize claims. Sherwin takes that experience and know how and capitalizes it to your advantage at the negotiation table and courtroom.

Professional, hard-working, and a pleasure to deal with
I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Tsai for two years as both a friend and co-worker. He is known in the legal community to be a very amicable person who knows his law and puts forth a great work product. As a former co-worker, I can attest to the fact that he takes his work very seriously and with a very professional demeanor.
