Title Founder and President

Sheryl L. Axelrod is an attorney, law firm owner (http://www.theaxelrodfirm.com/), internationally published author, public speaker, and diversity thought leader. She provides strategic, results-driven advice and representation to companies concerning their commercial, employment, bodily injury, and appellate litigation matters.

While only 5% of lawyers are recognized by their peers as Super Lawyers, Ms. Axelrod was rated one of the Top 50 Women Super Lawyers in Pennsylvania for the past three years in a row. One of her trials, a David versus Goliath commercial litigation victory for her client-defendant, was published in “Pennsylvania Jury Verdict Review & Analysis” which catalogs the most significant state verdicts.

She is a member of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA), a peer-selected honorary society of top trial lawyers. Vigorously vetted for skills, expertise, and service, less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers are accepted into LCA's by-invitation-only membership.

Ms. Axelrod received her undergraduate degree from Brandeis University Cum Laude in Economics, and her law degree from Temple University in 1993 after having won the 1992 Samuel J. Polsky Moot Court Competition.

Ms. Axelrod is the Immediate Past President of the Temple Law Alumni Association (TLAA), the fourth female to hold the post in TLAA’s nearly hundred year history.

John A. Fry shared his unique vision for the transformation of Drexel's campus and Philadelphia as a whole, and the importance of building an supports strong communities.
As he began his address, he said the following about JHP:

"For over two decades, Rabbi Schmidt and his team have undertaken really the most important work imaginable - ... building communities - and they do it by bringing people together around a shared heritage and culture ...They take a wonderfully broad view of their work, extending that community across a variety of domains, like education, the arts, and business ... It's also important to note that the great work of JHP started on a college campus, and that's a point of pride for anyone like myself... [My] thanks to colleagues from JHP for your inspiration, your support, and your great work."
