Kramon & Graham

M. Natalie McSherry is known as one of the state’s preeminent trial lawyers, but she has also been a tireless advocate for Maryland families living in poverty through her practice at Kramon & Graham and on the board of nonprofit organizations, including the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) and the Maryland Legal Services Corp. (MLSC).

McSherry said she is fortunate to be part of a firm that values each attorney’s contributions to the profession, community and society at large. She has worked to expand access to justice by focusing on legal services, poverty, and education. For example, she has fought for ongoing funding for MLSC in the Maryland General Assembly and helped guide MVLS as it increased the scope of its services.

“Working through nonprofits organizations including MLSC and MVLS, tens of thousands of low-income Marylanders have benefited from access to stable, efficient, and effective civil legal assistance,” she said. “This work has resulted in the delivery of legal services programs that protect children, seniors, veterans, immigrants, and victims of violent and sexual assault, and helped prevent home foreclosures.”

McSherry has more than 30 years of experience as a trial lawyer. She was elected to the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2005, which she considers her most significant professional accomplishment, and has been honored by numerous legal ranking guides for her work in litigation, alternative dispute resolution, health care law and medical malpractice.

McSherry is also a respected and effective mentor to new and less experienced lawyers in her firm, said Philip M. Andrews, chairman and principal, Kramon & Graham P.A. “She actively contributes to their professional growth and leadership development, both as a one-on-one mentor and as the head of our firm’s Mentorship Program.”

McSherry is also an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, where she helps develop aspiring lawyers. “She serves as a role model to law students and lawyers, encouraging them to embrace her high standards, imparting knowledge and wisdom, and providing support and career counseling,” Andrews said.
