    In addition to being a expert in adoption, Sherriann is well-versed in all aspects of child welfare law. My first introduction to Sherriann was as co-counsel in a post-adoption child welfare matter. I was and continue to be very impressed by her trial skills, professionalism, and passion for the rights of adoptive families and their children.

    Sherriann is a Fellow in the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys. I've known her since 2006 and she is very friendly, competent and hard working. When it comes to adoption and infertility law, she knows her stuff! She always goes the extra mile for others and is available even after hours in cases of emergency. How many attorneys do that? I highly recommend Sherriann for any adoption or family law related matter.
