Cheryl Hess began her legal career in 1985, when she entered the field of corporate law. She received her paralegal certificate in 1990 and worked her way up to managing a large corporate legal department in California, working directly with the General Counsel and Assistant General Counsel. Cheryl provided support in preparing corporate disclosure documents and materials for board and shareholder meetings, assisted in mergers and acquisitions, and managed all departmental support staff. Her role led her to transition into the government affairs division, where she worked as a liaison with state and federal legislative staff, and she helped develop a legislative database for the corporation.
The transition from corporate law to elder law was an easy one for Cheryl, as she thoroughly enjoys the direct interaction she has with our clients. The ability to make a positive impact on someone going through a challenging time in their life is especially rewarding for her, and she enjoys working with Morgan & DiSalvo, which was recognized by US News & World Report as one of the few select firms in Georgia to achieve its “Metro Tier 1” rating in the area of Trust and Estate Law.
Cheryl resides in Chino, California with her husband and their three children. She enjoys traveling around the world and planning cruises with family and friends.
