Sheri Warsh is a partner in the Trusts & Estates Group where she concentrates her practice in estate, gift and income tax planning and business succession planning matters.
Sheri’s work often involves many moving pieces, which can add a level of complexity to situations that may already be emotionally difficult for her clients.

Whether she is working with individuals, families, or major institutional clients, Sheri bases her practice on the client first approach. With that, Sheri pays close attention to the unique values and goals of her clients and structures a strategic plan to meet those goals. Sheri also has significant experience in the administration of estates, trust, disabled persons and minors.
Sheri actively participates in speaking engagements to inform audiences spanning to the national level about her knowledge in Trusts & Estates. Most recently, Sheri spoke for the American Law Institute (ALI-CLE) on ‘Representing Estate and Trust Beneficiaries and Fiduciaries.’
