“I can’t say enough about what a positive experience it was to work with Cheryl. She is responsive, compassionate, detail oriented and most of all knowledgeable. She’s never condescending and always happy to explain the legal process in a way that non-legal people can understand. She makes you feel like a part of a team instead of just a passive participant. I’m not sure what I would have done without her and if I’m unfortunate enough to again need legal expertise I will at least know she will be there working her hardest on my behalf.“
“I hired Cheryl to assist with a business dispute. She was very thorough and competent . Cheryl was always attentive and easy to communicate with. An articulate and knowledgeable professional, who asked the right questions. The outcome of the negotiates was favorable and I always felt I was in good hands.“
“We hired Cheryl Garber to serve as local counsel on a matter that we could not handle for our client (because we are VA/DC/MD attorneys). Ms. Garber is exceptionally intelligent and efficient and clearly an expert in the fields of law that she practices. She worked hard to negotiate a very positive outcome for our client and we had piece of mind throughout the entire process. She was also extremely communicative and responsive. I would recommend her 100 times over!“
“Ms Garber worked tirelessly in the pursuit of justice for us. We presented our case to her and she immediately came up with a game plan she felt would yield us a most successful outcome. She communicated with us every step of the way. During the litigation process she had a respectful rapport with the other side’s attorney which helped during our long, drawn out case”
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value.
Cheryl was wonderful in helping in a legal matter I had. She was very responsive and always answered my questions promptly, 10/10 would highly recommend.
I was extremely pleased with Cheryl’s responsiveness and legal guidance. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of legal assistance and is seeking the utmost professional representation.

Superior Court of PA Win
Despite the odds, Cheryl A. Garber, Esquire secured a remand for her Appellant client because the default judgement entered against her client as defendant in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas (before Garber Law represented the client) was pulled out of thin air and not based on an amount pleaded by plaintiff in the Complaint or determined at an assessment of damages hearing. Thus, the Superior Court of PA agreed with Garber, finding that the Prothonotary in the lower court lacked the authority to enter default judgement in the amount of $450k, and remanded the case to the lower court for a trial to determine what damages, if any, plaintiff is to be awarded.
