I live in Texas. In June 2013, I was visiting my brother at his request in Fairhope, Alabama after the death of his wife. One of my brother's deceased wife's relatives falsely accused me of a criminal act. And, unbeknownst to me, an arrest warrant was issued for me. I heard a rumor about the arrest warrant which shocked me as I did not know the person who issued the warrant. And, I did not know the reasons for it. I believe the relative was trying to harrass me and to intimidate me. But, I was absolutely afraid for my life as I've never even had a parking ticket or a speeding ticket in my 73 years here on Earth!! A friend recommended Mr. Joseph Allan Shaw to me. I called his office, and I spoke with his assistant, Deborah. She was very knowledgeable...she contacted Mr. Shaw...My brother and I met both of them at his office. Mr. Shaw, too, is very knowledgeable. He took my case. He kept me informed every step of the way. As I had never been in that part of Alabama, Mr. Shaw drove my brother and me to Bay Minette, Alabama to a bail bonding company to post bail...walked me across the street to the jail where I turned myself in...I was "processed," i.e., fingerprinted, photographed...took several hours...Mr. Shaw waited for me. We returned to his office at 10:00PM that night. A preliminary Hearing was held on Thursday, July 25, 2013. Mr. Shaw had witnesses to testify on my behalf that I did not commit the criminal act. But, they didn't testify because Mr. Shaw did such a GREAT job cross examining the prosecution's witness that the Judge dismissed the case right then for lack of evidence. I'm eternally grateful and thankful to Mr. Shaw for his help. He can help you, too.

Attorney Shaw took my call, listened attentively to my issue, read my case file and asked all the right questions to get to the bottom of what I needed. What I thought would be a complex multi-state emergency custody petition got satisfactorily handled and concluded by Mr Shaw and I even got a refund on my retainer!!! Mr Shaw was immediately responsive and took my time seriously. He did not spend his time frivolously on non-essential work or questions. I went into the case feeling completely over my head but once Mr Shaw got involved, this changed completely! He worked with my other attorneys in other states to line up his case and was able to explain all the details to me in clear and concise terms so that I was able to make confident and informed decisions. Mr Shaw's office was exceptionally helpful in facilitating my payment options and wend out of their way to provide very clear and detailed itemized invoices as well as clear and up-front communications about both payments and refunds. I was very impressed with Attorney Joseph Shaw and is entire office. They worked together to make an otherwise emotionally difficult and stressful process as easy as possible. I will definitely hire Mr Shaw again should I need representation in Alabama!
