Absolutely phonemical lawyer!
Sherlyn is a lawyer and beyond. She does what is right and is fiercely loyal to her clients! She tells you what is reality, not just what you want to hear, which for my case is exactly what I needed. Her personality put me at ease the moment we spoke and that is what I needed during this high stress and emotional time in my life. I can not say enough about her expertise, knowledge and passion for her job and for her clients. You are not just hiring a lawyer with Ms. Sherlyn Smith, you are hiring a counsel at law, she will guide you, help and advise up and beyond anything you will ever expect.
