About Sherry

Learn Sherry’s areas of practice.

I have currently been practicing law for 25 years in the family law and real estate law field.  I like the small firm atmosphere and personal results vs. large firm.  I practice in Harris and surrounding counties. I owned a title company for 20 years and represented CTX Mortgage company for 10 years.  I was the first female judge appointed to the City of Pasadena Municipal Court and currently hold the position of Municipal Judge for three small cities.  As a municipal judge, I preform weddings most weekends, so I stay really busy.  I also hold a Director on the Porter SUD, Montgomery County Development District, and other community organizations. 

I have a wonderful team to assist my clients and make sure that their experience with the legal system goes smoothly and that they are treated with respect.

Great attorney for adoption of a stepchild!!
My husband had been planning to adopt my daughter. We spoke to Sherry Tavel about the adoption process, and she was very knowledgeable. She was able to explain the each step, and tell us what we were going to need up front. It was comforting to have her on our side. When we came to any roadblocks in the case, her knowledge of the law made them minor. The process was quick, and we couldn’t be happier.

Protective order and Divorce
I met with and retained Sherry Tavel at the end of March 2015. At that time I was asking her to represent me in a divorce case. The reason for filing was my wife had assaulted me with bodily injury and she was arrested. However, being a vengeful person who can not accept responsibility for her own actions filed for a permanent protective order against me. This could have been a very haunting experience that would last a lifetime. Sherry directed me to get all the facts, data, facebook postings and witnesses I could acquire. She even went so far as to make a phone call to one witness. I got busy and did my part for Sherry getting the requested information she had requested. I met with her and we went over it all. In court, my ex tried to claim that the reason she beat me was because I had hit her in the knee. Sherry was able to ask all the right questions and the judge could quickly see that the information my wife was giving had no validity. He began to question her and she was very confused. The protective order was denied. I cannot thank Sherry and her staff enough. They were all aware of my case and they could answer questions and would always follow up. I would highly recommend Sherry to anyone.

Mrs. Tavel and staff were very helpful! I had a child custody case. The other parent lives in a different state and had not seen the child in 2 years, Mrs.Tavel helped me feet agilmanaging custody. It took a couple months and in the end I got exactly what I wanted. Mrs Tavel and staff were on top of everything, calling me everytime there was a change or anything. I'm very satisfied! I will be recommending Mrs.Tavel to anyone who needs her!
