Review on Cheryl
Cheryl took the heavy weight off my shoulders with her knowledge and recommendations. She was very professional, non-bias, and very compassionate. She gave me all the tools I needed to make informed decisions. Advised me on all the necessary documents I needed and who to get them from she went through it step by step with me, repeating in a kind tone if needed. Was not in a rush either. Amazing interacting with her. Thank you Cheryl. PS Will definitely be tell everyone about my experience with this firm.

Not just for money
Very impressed... I contacted them for help with an L&I claim. They spent time reviewing the file and provided guidance on how to proceed, along with work product. They refused to bill me for what must have been at least a few hours work. They actually mean it that you don't need to hire an attorney to get their help. Cheryl was so helpful. Treated me like I was their biggest client.

AWESOME HELP !
Thank you for helping me with some L & I , POOR service. The provider after L & I should loose there license. Extremely poor service!
Response from Christopher Sharpe October 5, 2020
We appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance. We like to help. If your provider continues their poor ways, you can file a provider complaint with L&I. Bad providers should find another job. Keep up the good fight. Chris Sharpe

Todd taylor on sharpe law
My name is todd. About 10 yrs ago i was injured while building hi voltage power lines. I was unable to take care of my self for years. Mr sharpe and his staff fought very hard against a deep pocket company. And i was awarded . Medical for life on my.on going injuries and 80% of my monthly wages. Although they are tax free now. I was referred to shape law by another law firm. It was the most important referral of my life. Cheryl helps me mainly with any problems that come up. Usually a problem getting meds or a doctor has a hard time with billing. They are immediately handled. I truly cant say enough about the people in this firm

How helpful you are
I'm taking my time to let people know how helpful you have been with me,without asking me to sign, giving me information an how to right letters when they stopped payments, telling me how things work when I should sign what I should expect

Prospective Client
I sent an inquiry to Attorney Sharpe regarding prospective representation and within minutes, Attorney Sharpe provided a response. Unfortunately for me, Attorney Sharpe could not represent me however, he provided information that was invaluable! If Attorney Sharpe is this timely, generous and responsive to non-clients, I can only imagine how excellent it would be to have him represent me! Thank you Attorney Sharpe!
