Q: How would your clients describe you?

A: Our clients will tell you that we are tenacious in achieving the best results. We pride ourselves on being trial lawyers for the people and our door is open to folks from all walks of life. “Anyone who needs compassionate, brilliant and super professional help should call the Sher, Cummings and Ellis Law firm.” —Perry S.

Q: What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?

A: Achieving the best possible result for our clients. Recently, we achieved a $3 million recovery for a severely injured bicyclist, a $330,000 recovery for a client injured by a defective escalator and a $300,000 recovery for a dog bite victim.  

Q: What has been your most notable challenge?

A: We recently achieved a rare trial victory in federal court against the Securities and Exchange Commission for an investor falsely accused of insider trading. Our tenacity also secured a seven-figure settlement for Hugo Princz from the German government, who endured years of labor at a Nazi camp during the Holocaust. Also notably, I was on the trial team that defended W. Mark Felt, later revealed to be “Deep Throat.”

Q: What sets you apart from other law firms?

A: We are a teaching law firm. I have been an Adjust Professor at George Mason University Law School for over 22 years teaching Virginia Practice and Virginia Remedies. We routinely employ several law student externs in our office. The partners also both serve on state-wide legal committees which are dedicated to educating and improving Virginia lawyers.
