Personal Injury Case
Mr. Sher represented me in a personal injury case. I suffer from several, chronic health conditions due to negligence. Mr. Sher was extremely knowledgeable regarding the law. He is a hardworking and ethical attorney. Mr. Sher always kept me informed throughout my case, regarding what to expect and made himself available to answer any questions and/or concerns that I had. He worked tirelessly to secure a successful outcome for me. I will definitely recommend Mr. Sher to family members or friends who are in need of an attorney in the future.
