Cheryl is a seasoned trial attorney who has won millions in verdicts and settlements on behalf of plaintiffs since she began practicing. Cheryl has taken numerous asbestos cases to trial in Northern California over the last decade, championing the rights of injured workers and their families to compensation for their occupational exposures to toxins. She communicates and works with asbestos plaintiffs' attorneys all over the country to provide her clients with the best possible representation. She also has taken on, and successfully litigated, difficult family law and real estate cases, often when no one else would take them.

After cutting her teeth in a prominent Bay Area plaintiff’s firm, Cheryl opened her solo practice in 2001, continuing her quality representation of injured workers, injured motorists or pedestrians, family law clients, and people involved in real estate disputes. No client is too small; each person who seeks out Cheryl’s counsel receives individual, thorough preparation and advocacy.

For two years, from 2005-2007, Cheryl assumed management of the San Francisco office of a plaintiffs' firm headquartered in Texas, Brent Coon & Associates. In addition to overseeing the growth of the office from four to over forty employees, she took over from other law firms the prosecution in Northern California of the claims of injured workers suffering from silica-related diseases. She worked tirelessly to overcome adverse legislation, investigations, and court orders from out-of-state jurisdictions to earn these Northern California cases respectability by both the court and defense firms. She also continued to try or settle numerous asbestos cases on behalf of injured workers with mesotheliomas, asbestosis, and lung cancers.

Cheryl has been an active volunteer since beginning to practice. From 1995-96, she served as a Family Law Judge Pro Tempore and Family Law Settlement Officer in Solano County. She has presented programs on solo practice and beginning family law for MCLE presentations sponsored by the Alameda County Bar Association. She continues to serve as a pro bono advocate for indigent and low-income family law litigants and people needing adoptions, TROs, AIDS-related help, health care, wills and trusts in Solano, San Francisco, and Alameda Counties, and is one of the original family law courtroom volunteers to draft orders after Alameda County family law hearings for the “Day of Court program”, which she still continues to do regularly today. A dedicated teacher, Cheryl still volunteers to judge moot court and advocate of the year competitions, Mock Trial, and teaches regularly at USF’s Intensive Advocacy Program. She has also taught trial advocacy at Stanford University’s Advocacy Program.

When not trying cases, Cheryl enjoys being Josh and Elizabeth’s mom. She also roots for her beloved California "Cal Bears" teams, goes wine tasting, cooks, and makes music with friends and family.
