I was extremely impressed with the legal assistance and guidance provided by Mr. Shook. I could not have asked for better legal representation. He was professional and treated me with respect regarding all proceedings. He was knowledgeable as well as trustworthy; I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

I could go through the litany of reasons why Dave was such a bad decision, but I will save myself the typing and you the eye strain.
Keeping it to short:
- Unresponsive (days, weeks, months). I ended up filing a motion to extend my case personally a day before the hearing, which was rejected by the Magistrate, only to have Dave finally contact me the morning of the hearing.
- Unreliable, see above and below:
- I had to edit my own judgement document, and what ended up being submitted was materially different than what was agreed upon. This was egregious enough that I thought long and hard about possible punitive actions.
- Missed our filing dates.
The meat'n'potatoes: the case settled neutral. No worse than I was before, and no better. I'd like to say it was money well spent, however as the arguments were constructed by me, the headache of dealing with someone so unprofessional was immense, and the anxiety caused by the lack of communication all make this a net-negative in my books.
In closing, if you plan on hiring Dave think long and hard... Check his other reviews. When you have a polar swing between folks that engaged him you should tread lightly, if you are risky enough to tread at all.

A year or so ago i was looking to get legal advice on a divorce and every lawyer i called was rude and wanted a fortune just to talk. Then i finally came across David shook online and told him my situation. From the start he was understanding, very knowledgeable and professional. I'm so thankful that i continued looking for a lawyer because he met my expectations and then some. Very friendly and reachable guy at all times which is harder for some lawyers you pay your whole bank account to. I would and have already recommend David shook to whoever is in need of a lawyer that knows his stuff and gets the job done at a reasonable price. I will continue to use his service's when ever i need legal advice. This is the go to lawyer for people who don't want treated like money is the only reason they are doing this . The man really wants to resolve your legal matter so you can get back to your life. He actually cares for people. Again best lawyer hands down on knowledge, reachability, price, and resolve.

As a father, I can tell you that David Shook has done an exceptional job of representing me in gaining custody of my children. From my very first encounter with David, he gained my trust as an experienced lawyer. If you want an attorney that will go above and beyond and will do what it takes for his clients, choose Mr Shook. I also found his pricing to be fair.

My daugher had a traffic issue in Bowling Green that resulted in her license being suspension. When we became aware of this issue, we had no idea where to start. We called David and he brought immediate calm to our situation. He gave us advice over the phone in that first phone call, and made himself available for a court appearance the very next day. Due to his expertise, the issue was completely resolved, charges were dismissed and her license was reinstated at no cost. We were lucky that our issue was just a paperwork mixup, but there is no way we could have navigated the system that quickly and ended up with that result on our own. He made both me and my 20 year old daughter feel immediately at ease. My daughter was in very good hands with David. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I called Mr Shook on a Thursday morning in order to have a motion entered (to reverse a temporary custody Order) prior to 3:00 pm on Friday (if not done by this time, then the case would have taken much longer and many more visits to the court house). He was able to get the job done by 10:30 am on Friday. He and I had phone contact at least 5 times in those 24 hours to keep me informed of his progress.
He traveled over 50 miles from his home base to process my case with a one day notice. He stayed through to the delivery of children to my daughter and I.
I would hire Mr. Shook again if I needed any legal help in OH again.

Mr. Shook is an amazing attorney. He went above and beyond to help me get custody of my child. He was always available to assist me and was very knowledgable about child custody matters. He truly cares about his clients and works hard to get you the results you want. He always maintains a positive attitude and puts his clients first. I would highly reccomend Mr. Shook.

To be very specific when people use the phrase grabbed the bull by the horns that is what Mr. Shook did for me and my case if you are looking for a top notch lawyer without all the bullshit that comes along with getting one Mr. Shook is definitely the way to go I can assure you that you won't be dissappointed. He worked around the clock for me and my family I was able to get full custody of my 3 year old daughter

I have tried three prior lawyers all of which seemed like good lawyers came in with the bark but had no bite. David Shook did all and then some for what he said I was going to recieve. David was on time with call backs, had a great understanding of the majistrates decision making which in return helped him position our next move. Always on time, took the time to explain everything we did not underatand, was able to come up with questions on the spot in addition to the prepared questions. Great posture, very confident, relatable, good rates and a person worthy of this great review. Thank you David for all you have and continue to do for our family our path is forever changed due to your zealeous representation. Being a man in wood county and winning custody. if that doesn't speek for its self nothing will.

He treated me very unprofessionally in my case. Never returned my calls, was nearly impossible to get a hold of. He knew what he was doing, but it took him nearly 3 times longer than it should have to resolve my case. Was constantly "losing" and "misplacing" required forms to fill out. Very lazy, very disorganized. I would never work with David Shook again, and would never recommend him to anyone for any type of legal counsel. Stay far away.
