    NEW YORK, NY, November 12, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sheryl R. Menkes has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

For more than 30 years, Ms. Menkes has served as an attorney and the owner of Menkes Law Firm in New York City. Currently, Ms. Menkes specializes in prosecuting cases that involve nursing home abuse and neglect, an area she became passionate about as a result of her own mother's mistreatment in a nursing home. Moreover, Ms. Menkes has also achieved exceptional verdicts and settlements for her clients involving medical malpractice, injured workers, and falls down stairways, in addition to motor vehicle accidents. Ms. Menkes is able to give each case in her firm the attention it deserves so that her clients will get full justice by imposing strict limits on her caseload. This also enables Ms. Menkes to maintain a familial atmosphere with her clients within her highly esteemed firm.

Ms. Menkes obtained a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Case Western Reserve University in 1972 and a Master of Business Administration from Baruch College in 1984. She then spent several years working in advertising and marketing while simultaneously teaching business arithmetic at Washington Irving Night High School in New York City. In 1989, Ms. Menkes completed a Doctor of Jurisprudence at Brooklyn Law School. She completed her education in 1992, at which point she obtained a Master of Laws from New York University School of Law.

Her professional accomplishments include membership on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Institute where she also conducted a seminar for other attorneys on prosecuting nursing home abuse and neglect cases. She also holds membership in the Kings County Inn of Court where she lectured to attorneys and judges on various topics. Ms. Menkes is also active in the New York Women's Bar Association where she is a member of the Solo Practice Committee, and is a member of the American Association of Justice and the New York Lawyers Nursing Abuse and Neglect Litigation Groups.

Since the establishment of her law firm, Ms. Menkes has secured multimillion-dollar settlements for a myriad of clients. Her very first trial was published in the Daily News for a $3+ million verdict for a city worker who injured his thumb in a bathroom as a result of the building owner's negligence. She achieved a multimillion-dollar settlement for the mother of a nineteen-year-old son, who died from undiagnosed Meningitis after seeking treatment in the emergency department of a city hospital. In 2012, Ms. Menkes obtained a settlement for an injured construction worker in excess of $8 million. In 2017, she achieved one of the top ten jury verdicts in the entire state of New York for a client who fell down a flight of steps in a store. In 2002, Ms. Menkes made law in a case she handled through appeal titled James v. NYCTA, 294 A.D. 2d 476 (2nd Dept 2002). In that year she was recognized in Strathmore's Who's Who of American Women.

Ms. Menkes has never lost any of her clients' cases. She attributes a great deal of her success to her never-ending fight for justice. In the coming years she hopes to effect legislation that improves the life of patients in nursing homes.

Her law firm's motto is: The small law firm with a big heart…and big settlements.
