Shelly is a fabulous attorney. She fights strongly for you when she believes in you. I have been with her at 3 different law firms because she truly cares about my case, after several who just didn't want to deal with my ex-wife's attorney and encouraged me to settle. Shelly is not intimidated and she saw my ex wife for EXACTLY what she was/is-a parental alienator. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law and unlike other attorneys, is extremely ethical as well. She was able to call a time out when I'd be furious over my exes latest antics and redirect me down the right path. She found the right experts to prove her alienation and has been able to calmly and articulately expose the many inaccuracies that my ex and her attorney had put forward. She is a strong advocates for both moms and dads, but her main focus is what's right for the child. We have referred many clients going through contentious situations to Shelly, and she is always open to reaching a compromise. Unfortunately, she has never been able to accomplish this with the other side. Very professional and dedicated.
