Ms. Wood is a seasoned negotiator adept at resolving legal disputes in either the pre-litigation stage or through the various stages of litigation. She is an experienced trial attorney handling all aspects of commercial litigation, employment disputes, personal injury, family law, legal malpractice and criminal defense matters (specializing in white collar and financial fraud) in state and federal courts. Ms. Wood began her career as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney's Office where she worked in a trial bureau and then in the Investigations Division in the Special Prosecutions and the well-regarded Frauds Bureau.

Ms. Wood then served as Vice President, Managing Director, and Office Head of Kroll Consulting Services' Washington DC office. At Kroll, Sheryl led multi-million-dollar client engagements involving compliance consulting and investigative matters. After Kroll, Ms. Wood became a Partner at two law firms, where she served in several leadership positions and started a Women General Counsel Brownbag Luncheon series, before starting her own law firm in 2009.
