Sherris Legal, P.A. \ Empowers those who need it most.
As a first-generation Greek-American, Mary Sherris knows firsthand the sacrifices that her parents made so that she could enjoy the rights of being an American. She seeks to use this gift to make a difference. Mary is a licensed attorney with the Florida Bar and managing partner of Sherris Legal, P.A. Alongside her attorney brother, Jim Sherris, Mary is proud to navigate the complex issues in the areas of Personal Injury, Immigration Law, and Social Security Disability. Sherris Legal, P.A. is a downtown Orlando-based law firm that is more committed than ever to fighting for the underdog and those in dire need.
Mary began her career in central Florida as a prosecutor with the State Attorney’s Office fighting for victims of crime. For the last 17 years, Mary has been fighting for justice for victims of negligence and helping others realize the American dream through lawful U.S. citizenship. Mary believes that her position as an attorney gives her the opportunity and the responsibility to place control back in the hands of those that have lost it, lifting her clients up from a position of powerless to powerful.
You can expect realistic and honest explanations as you work with Mary, who values transparency to help build a trusting relationship with her clients. “My connection with my clients is about much more than just their case,” she says. This is why Mary takes great care in getting to know her clients’ needs and providing services above and beyond those needs.
As an avid traveler, she has had the opportunity to see the world and connect with people from many different cultures. “I was brought up in a very tightknit Greek family. We believe in treating all people like they are family,” says Mary. “When my father passed, I realized what was really invaluable to me; my relationship with God, leaving the world behind just a little better than when I started and spending quality time with my loved ones.” She credits her mother, Vana, for instilling in her that anything is possible if you just believe and to never ever give up.
Mary’s love for helping others fuels her direction in all life’s pursuits. She values the time she spends helping others in and outside of work. Some of her favorite charities include The Nature Conservancy, which is one of the most effective and efficient environmental organizations in the world, and United Against Poverty, which gives a ‘hand up’ to people in poverty through employment training and by providing household subsidy through their member grocery store. These charities are closely tied to her own life mission: “Empowering others through a more satisfying and long-term solution…Empowering others to take charge of their own lives again.
