Attorney Sherry Lankford is an Alabama native breathing new life into Georgia’s bar. Through years of work in retail management, she learned just how important client interaction and satisfaction are to success. After graduating from Auburn University in 2003, Sherry moved to New York City where she practiced interior design and began laying the foundation for what would become her mantra: no matter what you’re given, find a way to make it shine! Searching for ways to make a more significant impact in the world, Sherry enrolled at the Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2010. Taking her research skills to the next level, Sherry applied and was hired to work in the school’s law library. Seeking an inside glimpse at how the legal system worked behind the scenes, she also took on a clerkship with Judge Truman Hobbes, Jr. of the 15th Judicial Circuit Court of Alabama. While clerking, Sherry learned just how important having a great advocate is for steering the outcome of a case and vowed to be such an advocate herself. In an effort to further broaden her perspective, Sherry moved abroad to study international law where she took a course with Chief Justice Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court. Following her graduation in 2012, she continued clerking for Judge Hobbes before ultimately moving into private practice where she learned civil litigation. Wanting to reach more people, Sherry took and passed both the Alabama and Georgia State Bars and then moved to Atlanta in 2014. She found a home with Daniels & Taylor, P.C. in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and immediately put her skills to work helping clients throughout metro Atlanta. Sherry’s practice centered on family law (including divorce, child support, child custody, alimony, spousal support, guardianship, contempt actions, modifications, temporary protective orders) and criminal defense. In 2017, Sherry left Daniels & Taylor, P.C. to be a founding attorney with Lankford & Moore Law, LLC, so she could have the freedom to put her broad range of experiences to work in serving her clients. As a member of both the Alabama and Georgia bars, Sherry brings a unique perspective that lends itself to helping clients when no one else can find a way. No matter the case, she can find a way to make it shine!
Sherry has recently moved outside the perimeter to Gwinnett County. In her free time, Sherry is a devoted yoga instructor and practitioner. She also owns Performance Power Yoga, a fitness-based yoga studio, in Lawrenceville’s downtown square. When she isn’t sharing her gift of yoga with other yogis, Sherry can be found cooking fantastic blends of American and Filipino cuisine, designing creative spaces for friends and family, spoiling her cats, Alistair and Maki, and roaming the aisles of Target for the next great thing. When asked how being a yogi helps her to be an astounding lawyer, Sherry mused, “You learn clarity through perseverance. By never giving up, you always find the answers you are looking for.”
