Our Company

Originally established in Chicago, JS Sherman and Associates was founded and formed by Jeffrey S. Sherman, CLU. We have proudly been a South Florida business since 1975, local to Boca Raton since 1979, and Central Florida since 2008. Our business has always serviced both corporate and individual needs.

Our Philosophy

Our business philosophy is simple. “We listen to our prospect or client. We understand what he or she is asking; and we make every effort to find a satisfactory solution. No double talk, no fancy confusing language.”

Each insurance product offered to individuals or companies is developed through a series of in-depth meetings. The nature of the insurance need determines how much and what kind of insurance is appropriate. Once the need is agreed upon, we select the best company or companies to fill that need.

During this procedure our clients will gain an overall understanding of how various insurance products will fit their needs. What's most important is that the solution is economically feasible, and that it satisfies their primary requirements.

We continue to meet with our clients on a regular basis. Changes in the economy and insurance environment are ongoing. Therefore, we regularly contact our clients to keep them abreast of changes, and how they can affect their plans or programs.
