SHERRY V. NEAL is the managing member of Neal & Wright LLC. Experienced in both the private and non-profit legal sectors, Sherry specializes in assisting families who want to grow through adoption and enjoys representing adoptive parents in all types of adoptions as well as the occasional birth parent who needs legal advice to facilitate her adoption plan. Sherry is widely recognized as an expert on Title IV-E adoption assistance benefits and is a regular speaker on this topic. Sherry also provides legal services in the area of estate planning, focusing on middle income estates. Through these practice areas, Sherry’s goal is to assist her clients with creating families and protecting the rights of family members, particularly those with special needs.
As an outgrowth of her adoption practice and because of her commitment to Georgia’s adoptive families, Sherry is the founder of the Georgia Council of Adoption Lawyers and was the Charter President of that organization. She is also a Fellow in the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, which allows her to work at a national level on issues affecting children and families in the adoption community, and serves on the Board of Trustees for the Family Formation Charitable Trust. A charitable outgrowth of ///A, the Family Formation Charitable Trust provides financial assistance to those individuals and organizations seeking to create families through adoption and assisted reproductive technology, to provide educational programs in support of this mission, and to provide grants and sponsorship for innovative and meaningful family building programs.
