Exceptional Legal Representation: An Outstanding Lawyer
If you’re seeking legal representation, look no further - this lawyer is an absolute gem. I had the misfortune of having a complaint filed against me at my university while being only about a month from graduation. From the moment I engaged with Sherri, it was evident that her expertise and knowledge was unparalleled. Before I had even hired her after my consultation, Sherri drafted a challenge to my university’s unwarranted intermediate measures against me - she’s fast. She’s also effective, because we not only won on that challenge, but we won the case! One of the standout qualities of this attorney are her exceptional communication skills. Sherri was able explain legal concepts to me in a clear and concise manner, ensuring that I fully understood every aspect of my case. Whether in person, over the phone, or via email/text, her responses were prompt, thorough, and highly professional. Sherri actively listened to my concerns and provided valuable insights, instilling a sense of confidence and trust throughout the entire process. What truly sets Sherri apart is her unwavering dedication and commitment to her clients. She treated my case with the utmost importance, demonstrating a genuine concern for my well-being and a determination to achieve the best possible outcome. Sherri’s work ethic was evident in the hours she dedicated researching, strategizing, and preparing my case. Her attention to detail was extraordinary, leaving no stone unturned. Ultimately, the measure of an exceptional attorney lies in their ability to deliver results, and Sherri did just that. With her remarkable legal acumen and strategic approach, she navigated my case with precision and tenacity. Sherri left no room for doubt that she was fighting for my best interests. Her advocacy resulted in a favorable outcome that exceeded my expectations, and I am immensely grateful for her exceptional representation.

Thankful client
It was a call no parent wanted to receive. My daughter had gotten arrested for underage drinking and fake ID as a student. We called Sherri on a Saturday night frantically looking for legal council. Sherri called us back within 10 minutes and has helped us through the entire process. Each step of the way, Sherri took time to explain the process so that we knew what to expect.She has expertly managed to have my daughter's arrest record expunged and has kept great communication through the process with an out of town parent. We can't say enough good things about Sherri. We feel that she really cares about us and our case. Thank you again, Sherri!!

My go to attorney
Many years ago Ms. Romano helped me with a simple traffic violation. The experience was so positive that any traffic violation or general legal questions I have, I first contact her. Fortunately, I haven’t had many traffic concerns recently, however, Sherri has continually helped me with many other legal questions and always sends me to the right attorney whenever the need is outside the scope of her expertise. She is honest, diligent and hard working. Always my first call!

Hire her without hesitation! You'll be glad you did.
I'm a professional and hired her to handle a very important case for me that would impact my career. She did an amazing job and got my charges dismissed. I would trust her in every situation.

Excellent Representation and Ethics Superb
Attorney Romano represented me in a Civil case where I was arrested for Felony-Stolen Property when in fact - I was innocent. after the humiliation, damages I suffered she actually traveled to N Fl to clear the charges. She is an excellent listner, secures facts quickly AND PERFORMS BEYOND ONES EXPECTATION.

star only review
She was quick in her response but she was unable to assist me. I would refer for some one who’s looking to see if she can take the case, wouldn’t be able to refer in more of a way because i was unable to see how she worked and how successful she is. Quick responding but she was also unable to refer me to someone else who might be able to take my case.

Response from Sherri Romano July 12, 2019
Dear Anonymous, You were not a client of mine but it appears that you contacted my office and I generously took the time to speak with you about your case. I informed you that I do not handle the type of matter that you had. Unfortunately, I only handle certain cases: criminal defense and college discipline defense which is detailed in my AVVO profile.
