Exactly what I needed
I am young designer who recently entered the IP world. Sheri has been instrumental in guiding me through the process of protecting my ideas and designs. Her rates are straight forward with no question marks or small print. This provided me with piece of mind and allowed us to move quickly as a team from initial conversation to completion of a set of provisional patents. Thank you and I am looking forward to continuing the partnership in the future.

Brilliant lawyer
I have had the pleasure of working with Sheri for a number of years now. I am a 20 year corporate counsel who hands out millions in work each year, and I am exceedingly picky and demanding in what I want. Timeliness. Communication. KNOW THE LAW. She is one who sets the standard on all of these. A tireless worker, gracious and unflappable, who would take whatever technology I gave her, learn it quickly and generate a great application, at a fair price. Exactly what every lawyer should strive to be.
