About me

Since 1995 we have helped clients in the Atlanta metro area resolve high conflict divorce and child custody cases. We are known for taking on the difficult and complex cases and getting results.  Call us to find out for yourself why we are the right attorneys.

Mr. Shaw is the founder and principal of Shaw Law Firm, LLC.  He graduated from law school with honors, and has an M.B.A. from Duke University.  Shaw Law Firm, LLC was awarded "Best of Atlanta" for the last three years running, and our practice is exclusively divorce and child custody cases.  Our clients are people with difficult or complex cases throughout all walks of life.  We are often called in as a second attorney on the case because the original attorney was unable to handle the difficulty or complexity or simply the stress of a matter.  Whether it be unable to understand the financial or business issues (such as dealing with complex stock options, or family owned businesses) to addressing child custody matters.  We represent both men and women, which we feel makes us more effective as we know the strategies to use from both sides of the case, and our results show this.  Call us and find out for yourself why we have been the right law firm to call for your needs since 1995.
