Sherr Law Group’s Cases of Note
Our team of defense lawyers defends municipalities and businesses from claims made by individuals.
Our experienced team has helped clients successfully win their cases in a variety of circumstances, including:
- Karchnak v. Swatara Township, 446 Fed. Appx. 432 (3d Cir. 2012): A case involving a Civil Rights lawsuit against our client by a female Sergeant. Our team aggressively defended our client, resulting in a verdict finding our client non-liable.

Our group employed a national expert in playground safety to win the case at trial after proving that the surface was not the reason for the accident.
