Sherri L. Warfel, Chair of the Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect practice, is a skilled trial attorney and litigator with 25 years of experience representing victims injured by negligence.
I have always been driven to advocate for those in need and am happy to work for a law firm that has a lengthy history fighting for injured parties. For the past 25 years, I have represented the vulnerable population of elder and infirm individuals in nursing home neglect and abuse cases. I am a skilled and seasoned litigator and trial lawyer willing to confront any medical facility who has caused harm to the people it was meant to help.
