Sheri was absolutely awesome. I had a lot of stress going into filing for bankruptcy, but, Sheri helped me feel better about the whole situation and really relieved the stress that had plagued me for so long. Thank you again, Sheri. I recommend her if you are looking to file for bankruptcy - she will get the job done, no doubt.

She helps a bunch
I am very appreciative of Sheri and her empathetic nature. I called a lot of offices and they are always answered by someone who is not the attorney and not empathetic to my lack of knowledge in the situation that I'm facing. Sheri was a great help she listened to me and gave me advice and pointers on how to proceed. I am definitely hiring her for this (if needed) and other matters that might arise in the future. A sympathetic ear goes a long way and I feel that other Firms and attorneys need to take a page from Sheri.

An attorney that truly cares!
I initially went to Sheri with the intentions of filing for bankruptcy, after working with her for a while we were able to make a few negotiations with a collection agency and I ended up debt free and totally paid off! Sheri helped me through every step of the way and I never would’ve gotten here without her. Sheri truly is an attorney that cares about her clients and I would recommend her to anyone who is considering filing bankruptcy.

Awesome Results and Easy to Work With
Sheri gave us all the options in as clear and objective a manner as anyone I've ever met. She is a wealth of knowledge and will research unbelievably thoroughly until she feels comfortable with a choice she presents. She does not hand your case over to a staff of subordinates. She IS your lawyer, full-time. We never felt like some step in the bankruptcy process was not well understood by us. We just had to give her the data and she filled out all the proper forms and double and triple checked each step with us. Sheri is very easy to communicate with and most importantly, she answers each and every question we asked, no matter how stupid it might have been. I can't imagine ever going to a big city law firm with a dozen lawyers shuffling us around, when we can go to Sheri and get personal, friendly, expert attention every day. Awesome experience.

Rockstar results.
Sheri was a wonderful help correcting a self filing that I did. I had filed my chapter 7 bankruptcy on my own assuming that I could complete the paperwork without consulting a lawyer. My case turned out to be more complex then I realized. Sheri did all the further research on the out of state property that my husband owned and how it would affect my case. She was absolutely wonderful.

above and beyond and absolutely amazing!
We needed Sheri's help back in 2011 and she was very knowledgeable and our experience went very smoothly. What is amazing is that I have needed some documents and help since then and she has been right there with help, advice, and prompt callbacks and just unbelievable customer service in the years following. I could not give a higher recommendation for professionalism, courtesy, follow-through, and thoroughness. She has never acted like I was putting her out or even hesitated to answer questions, email documents, or give helpful advice, not even 7 years later. If I could give her 10 stars, I would!

Smooth Process
Sheri made our legal process a smooth and relatively stress-free process. She is prompt in communication, and clear in her message. I would utilize and recommend her for other legal matters in the future should I need them.

Couldn’t be more pleased
Can’t say enough good things about Sheri. She was very attentive, informative and punctual. She was able to answer all my questions. Get back to me in a timely manner as well as come through on everything she assured me of. As skeptical as I was about filing a bankruptcy she was very helpful and I owe her a lot for giving me my life back, as well as a positive outlook on the situation I was involved in. I am very thankful in my decision to work with her and would do it again in a heart beat.

Patient and Helpful
I appreciate the Sheri was patient while I weighed my options, sometimes needing it to be explained repeatedly. She was compassionate and professional through the entire process. She met deadlines, gave me prompts of how to be prepared, and followed up on action items in a timely manner.

Absolutely Awesome
Ms Sheri was very personable. She was there whenever I needed her. It was a smooth transition from a Chapter 13 conversion to a Chapter 7. I would absolutely recommend her! I wish I'd hired her originally. I cant thank her enough.

Very Helpful & Very Professional
Sheri was amazing in helping me figure out which chapter was best for me to file in. She took her time to explain the difference between a 7 & 13. Filing bankruptcy isn't something to take lightly, but her professionalism through the whole process made me have the confidence to know that I was making the right decision. It always feels good to leave an appointment feeling like all your questions were answered and having a clear vision of what the next steps will be and what to expect. Sheri was referred to me and I'll definitely refer her onto others in my circle who may one day need her services.

Quality support and guidance
Sheri was very helpful in providing me with valuable perspective and guidance for how to proceed with a garnishment issue. She was attentive, engaged and proactively supportive with a result of me feeling that I had more of a understanding of my context and options.

Very Professional
Sheri Nevlin was very professional when providing legal representation in my chapter 7 bankruptcy. She kept me up to date and informed about upcoming court dates and required items. She handled all my sensitive items and information accordingly.

Very grateful!
Sheri was great to work with, she made a very difficult situation easier to get through. 3 years later I needed her assistance regarding my case. She responded quickly and was very helpful.

Ms. Nevlin is great!
Ms. Nevlin was outstanding in helping my with my situation. She was very helpful and caring about all aspects of my situation. I would use her again in any situation, and would instantly recommend her to anyone.

Professional and compassionate
Ms. Nevlin’s professionalism combined with her compassion for my situation was exactly what I needed. Bankruptcy is a scary and stressful thing to go through but with Sheri’s help I didn’t feel like I was going through it alone. She kept me informed and gave me to tools to monitor some items myself. Sheri has been very available to answer the naïve questions that I have had and answered them without making me feel silly for not already knowing the answers as others have. I have been privileged to have Sheri on my side and would highly recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.

We should have called you sooner!!!
My husband & I were referred to Sheri by friends who were happy with the help that she had given them. After struggling and drowning in debt, filing for bankruptcy was an extremely difficult decision for us to make. Sheri was exceptionally positive and helpful, supporting us through the process. She handled our case with both professionalism and compassion, and made herself available when we needed her. There is such an unbelievable burden lifted off of our shoulders, and our only regret is that we didn’t call her sooner! Thank you Sheri! We highly recommend Sheri Nevlin!
