Cheryl began her law career concentrating in the area of Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation. After working for over 20 years representing major companies, she wanted a change to a more personal field. She believed it was time to dedicate her efforts toward helping people and making a personal difference in people’s lives. As she had spent time assisting family members in drafting 504 Plans, the area of Special Education Law seemed a perfect fit.
Cheryl currently focuses her practice on special education law, specializing in cases arising under IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, as well as matters involving Discipline and Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying. She loves working with families to help them navigate difficult situations and uses creativity and compassion to help come up with practical solutions to difficult issues. She gets the most satisfaction by helping children achieve their greatest potential.
Cheryl earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Tufts University, cum laude, and a Juris Doctorate from Cornell Law School where she concentrated in Business Law and Regulation and served as a member of the Journal of Law and Public Policy. After law school she earned an L.L.M. in Taxation from New York University Law School while working full time for a law firm in New York City.
Cheryl lives in Union County with her husband, twin daughters and labradoodle. She is a member of the bars of the State of New Jersey and the State of New York.
