Why I Became a CWLS – Sherry Powell

Sherry Powell


I am an Attorney Supervisor with the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services. I have practiced law for 23 years and for the last 19 years I have devoted my career to child welfare law. Because I strive to provide the highest quality legal representation to my client, DCFS, I sought CWLS certification. Recognizing child welfare as a distinct legal specialty provides credibility to practitioners in this field. The CWLS certification process promotes competent counsel for children, parents, and social service agencies, which collectively will lead to better outcomes for the children and families we serve. I am honored to be recognized as a CWLS, which allows me to reflect to the bar, judiciary, and DCFS my personal commitment to Child Welfare.
