My husband and I attended a course on Wills & Trusts that Lynn taught at the Berkeley Adult School. The information she gave us was clear, concise, and current. We have worked with Lynn on our wills, taxes, and other issues through the years. We have found her to be easily accessible. She explains things very clearly and uses humor to help lighten the mood. We are always pleased with the resolution of our issues and the cost of Lynn's services. She is trustworthy and knowledgeable.

I hired Ms Sherrell for a CA personal injury automobile case. She guided me through the medical treatment to ensure that the treatment was correct, she was very easy to work with in general.
I had no trouble to communicate with her and she kept me informed at every step of the process which took over a year to conclude. Her work and excelent knowledge of the law resulted in a reward which went beyond what I was expecting . This might have had something to do with the fact that Ms. Sherrell prepares every case for trial which makes an out of court settlement more probable.

Lynn Sherrell changed my life. She made sure I received medical treatment after my injury on the job and helped me through one of the
hardest experiences I've ever faced. She truly cares about doing the right thing by her clients and I feel completely blessed to have found her. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and keep her name at the tip of my tongue for anyone needing an attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Sherrell has long demonstrated a gift for zealously protecting and furthering the rights of her clients throughout her years of practice. She works tirelessly to achieve the best possible result for those she represents. I have no hesitation in enthusiastically recommending her.
