REPRESENTING INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL BUSINESSES

Our law firm advocates for individuals and small businesses. Litigating against powerful corporations and governmental entities can be intimidating to less experienced lawyers. In the past, we have represented clients against large oil and gas companies, including BP, St. Tammany Parish Coroner's Office, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, Nextel Corporation, Vodafone Group, T-Mobile, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

    When we needed to navigate City Hall and apply for the liquor license for our restaurant, Ms. Sherman helped us to successfully navigate a complex and somewhat obtuse and frustrating process.

    Kea has represented me for several years. The nature of my business has me working in and around several different “unrelated” industries - music, film, real estate, technology.

    I was involved in a vehicle accident with injuries on the job. I was referred to Kea Sherman with the Sherman Law Firm. Thank God they took my case. They had me under medical care and getting worker's compensation immediately. Kea led me through all of my medical and legal rights and settled my case quickly. If you need a law firm that will hit them like a lightening rod, then you've come to the right place.

    In selecting her as my attorney, I also got some peace along the way just knowing that she was handling things for me, and handling them with fortitude and relentless perseverance. I am forever grateful for what Kea did for me. Because of her, I now have closure with my husband’s death as well as financial stability for the rest of my life. I have such respect for her, her work ethic, knowledge of the legal system, and her ability to represent me as her client.
