Sheryl’s heritage consists of Blackfoot, of the Blood Tribe in southern Alberta, and Pueblo, of the Pueblo Indian Nation of Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. Her First Nations heritage allows her to provide valuable insight on issues facing First Nation clients. Sheryl joined the Maurice Law team in 2006 after her call to the Bar of the Law Society of Alberta in 2004. In two intermittent years, she gained experience at a consulting firm engaging First Nations in consultation in major resource development projects and practiced as general counsel for a large First Nation advising on corporate and commercial issues, including contract drafting, establishing and advising on business structures, health and child welfare and Tribal governance and administration issues. At Maurice Law, Sheryl represents First Nation clients across Canada seeking resolution of their specific claims. Specifically, Sheryl’s practice is focused on Treaty and Aboriginal rights issues, including the negotiation and litigation of unlawful surrenders and expropriations of reserve land.
