About Us

Tom Sherwood founded this law firm to provide clients with practical and cost-effective litigation services.  Our clients range from individuals and closely-held businesses to national financial and banking institutions.

Tom previously practiced at two prominent New York law firms, where he regularly handled matters in areas including contract disputes, real estate litigation, construction litigation, development rights disputes, business divorce actions, constructive trust litigation, contested Surrogate’s Court and Supreme Court accountings, wrongful death actions, and real estate transactions.

Since the firm’s inception over a decade ago, we have continued to enjoy growth in our client base and our professional staff.  In 2018, the firm changed its name from Thomas G. Sherwood, LLC to Sherwood & Truitt, LLC, in recognition of longtime firm member, Jim Truitt.  In 2022, Amy Abbandondelo, who has been with the firm since 2011, was promoted to member.  

With a concentration in real estate, contract, trusts and estates, and tort litigation, we regularly appear in state and federal trial and appellate courts and before alternative dispute tribunals.  We represent clients in the counties of Nassau, Suffolk, New York, Queens, Kings, Richmond, Bronx, and Westchester, as well as in the Hudson Valley area.

We invite you to explore our service areas and to contact us for more information.
