Posted by Nathalie,
Ms. Shelton provided me with prompt and impeccable service and I am happy to recommend her services to any and everyone. As a budding author, I needed an expert to review a literary contract and fortunately, due to Ms. Shelton's assessment and attention to details, she helped me avoid a potential pitfall that could have bound me in an agreement that provided no way to ascertain my financial responsibility to the agent. Thank you Ms. Shelton for your professionalism, accessibility, and wisdom!

Ms. Shelton was intuitive, kind, and honest. She worked hard for me and was earnestly invested in my case. She provided me numerous options and made me feel very comfortable. She was not money hungry and she took her time to make sure I understood every aspect of my case. She was wonderful!

I was referred to Attorney Shelton by a mutual acquaintance. Although I arrived for legal representation only a short time before an impending court date, Attorney Shelton graciously accepted my case and showed up extraordinarily well prepared and organized (I thought I was thorough...) but the order in which she arranged all files (8 years' worth of emails, 5 years' worth of time cards, pay stubs, and bank account statements) caused the defendant to change his demeanor from one of arrogant indifference to humble respect tempered w/ fear and, by the end of our negotiation, one of admiration (he actually requested her business card and asked could he call her for legal representation in any future litigation he may have!)
I was very pleased w/ her calm, confident command of ALL of my documents, the chronological order of all pertinent interactions leading up to and including this legal action, and the pleasant manner in which she negotiated my favorable complete and immediate settlement; she did not permit it to drag out over months-years of a payment plan that may or may not ever materialize. Her follow up was comforting, her integrity was refreshing, her knowledge of the law silenced the defendant and his associates as they wrongly accused me and misquoted the rules of employment engagement.
I can't say enough...but I don't want to be too lengthy. I was fretful before I was referred to Attorney Shelton b/c I'd already given my honest sweat equity for which I was consistently underpaid (and falsely, yet repeatedly promised restitution) for 5 years -- and now had to fight in a court of law (spending additional funds that I did not have for this purpose) to get paid for services already rendered. It was a daunting task. But she stood on principle w/ me and fought for me as aggressively as if it were her own wages that were stolen. I am grateful for her time, attention to detail, diligence and care that ended with the defendant refusing trial/agreeing to settlement b/c of the overwhelming volume of evidence Attorney Shelton presented during our mandatory pre-trial negotiations. As she began to speak on my behalf, I quickly realized that she actually HEARD every concern I had spoken to her previously, researched the legal foundations of each concern and voiced each eloquently, unfailingly countering and rendering impotent every argument the defendant raised. Her fee for services was extremely fair (again, something that was refreshing and unexpected). I highly recommend her, thank her and pray God's continued excellence and success in her work!

Ms. Shelton is a very competent attorney and she is as professional as they come. She is handling my employer discrimination case for me. At this point we're waiting on the EEOC, but when my case does eventually come to court I fully expect to come out victorious.

Ms. Shelton had complete knowledge of the law in my case. As my advocate, she prevailed and I won my case.
Her performance was without exception, and my life has been comfortable due to her representation as I sought, and ultimately, found, good employment.
I have only the highest respect and offer the highest recommendation to Ms. Shelton!

Ms. Shelton was very professional and knowledgeable. She spent the time to become familiar with my case and all the special nuances it contained. At my hearing she stated my case very well and in cross- examination she was able to show the inadequacies of my accusers. She won my case! I would definitely recommend her to a friend or use her again if the need presented itself.
