In 2007, SiebenCarey was handling a large toxic tort case and Sheri Peterson came on board as a paralegal. For most of that case, she was the only support professional and she interviewed over 200 potential claimants, ultimately pursuing 45 claims.
“Sheri’s ability to analyze tens of thousands of pages of Minnesota Department of Health and EPA documents enabled us to focus on what was important for our litigation,” said Shannon Carey in nominating her as an unsung hero.
Peterson says she has a nearly photographic memory so she scans everything with her eyes.
She is now working on medical malpractice and personal injury files. Having experienced a life-changing accident herself, she knows how scared the clients are. “It’s a real joy to hold their hand and reassure them to concentrate on their health,” Peterson says.
“Sheri’s patience and determination to ensure our clients were getting the benefits they were entitled to along with the services they needed makes her a great asset to SiebenCarey. Our clients trust Sheri and rely on her to walk them through confusing insurance-related benefits and to help them get through difficult moments of their injuries,” Carey says.
