One of Sheri's strengths as a writer is the ability to write about complex subject matter in a way that makes clear to the lay reader the issues at hand without "dumbing down" the discussion. Sheri's writing uses the art of storytelling and prose to seamlessly immerse the reader in the discussion without the reader having to parse out difficult language in order to be engaged by the issues. Sheri applies her writing style to any project she tackles, including legal writing, in which she has had the most experience as a writer.

Sheri has excellent writing and research skills and has handled a variety of legal matters. Her appellate briefs, and points and authorities submitted to a variety of jurisdictions have resulted in favorable decisions for her clients.
