I would recommend her and have. Sheryl Traum has represented me in two related building defect cases and now is working on another, unrelated case that came up.
I think Ms. Traum believes deeply in fairness. She is smart, compassionate, well informed, a patient guide and a clever strategist. She couples those attributes with a great sense of when to discuss and when to fight.
She has routinely gone the extra mile to study up on cases and to keep me informed of plans and progress. She sees the broad overview of the case and does a great job explaining the context and options. She has kept me apprized of the risks, the outside factors at play and the potential strategies we might encounter from our opposition.
Sheryl Traum is a pleasure to work with. While we haven't always "won" outright, through her technical competence she has kept my mercurial expectations realistic and I believe achieved the best possible "real wold" outcomes. I'm very glad to have her on "my team" and to count her among my friends and associates.
