“Sherry’s in-house experience, coupled with her employment law and litigation knowledge, allows us to meet the expanding needs of our clients,” said Elizabeth N. Hall, Chair of the firm’s Labor & Employment practice area. “She adds significant depth to our California employment services and we are thrilled to have her on board.”
