About me

Sheryl Lam, esq. is known as a fierce litigator and is well respected by both her clients and her peers while in deposition and in court.  

Ms. Lam has experience in many areas of the law including immigration, family law, personal injury and criminal law. She currently devotes her time exclusively to representing injured workers but is able to apply her vast knowledge of the law to the many issues that cross over into workers compensation. In addition to English, Ms. Lam speaks Cantonese, Mandarin and Vietnamese, to assist our clients that speak other languages. 

Prior to becoming a founding partner at Silberman & Lam, LLP, Ms. Lam was a partner at Silberman Law Office, LLP, and the owner of Law Offices of Sheryl Lam. When she is able to get time off, Sheryl enjoys returning to Hawaii where she grew up and spending time cooking. 

In addition to Vietnamese, Cantonese and Mandarin, we have office staff that speak Spanish, Korean and Cambodian to assist our clients who speak these languages.


Languages spoken: Vietnamese, Cantonese, Cambodian, Korean, Khmer, Spanish, Mandarin
