Finding Maria Shinn was such a blessing for my wife and I. We had so many questions surrounding our up coming marriage and estate planning. We didn't even realize how much we didn't know. Maria walked through all of our concerns and raised points that we had not thought of. So grateful for her patience in taking the time to answer and explain our questions and concerns. She spoke in a language that we could understand. Getting an appointment was simple and we were able to be seen right away every time. We will hire her for any future legal needs that may arise.
Maria is friendly, supportive, and professional. She makes you feel like family. My divorce was the most difficult life event I've experienced so far, and she and her staff made it a million times easier. The will was detailed and thorough, she made sure I understood every portion of the will. I would not hesitate to recommend Shinn and Lanter to all my family and friends.
Ms. Shinn was very warm, kind and calming in my interaction with her when preparing my prenuptial. She insisted that I ask questions and seek clarification every step of the way. She was patient with my novice understanding of this part of the law.

Maria was so kind and caring and she is not even a therapist. She was generous with her time, available, and compassionate in my separation with my partner. She gave sound and timely advice.

Maria Shinn is a rare find. We were so impressed and put at ease by her extensive knowledge, competence, trustworthiness, and warm, personal, down to earth style. She came highly recommended and we can see why. We will definitely work with her again in the future.

Marie Louise Shinn helped me by writing my will as I was looking at spinal surgery in the very near future. She not only took all my info but also asked questions on matters I had forgotten to include. I was kept abreast of the process as she completed each section so I could check accuracy of info. The whole process was completed in a reasonable amount of time. At the completion of the will, Maria sat down with me and went through each area in detail to be sure I was satisfied. I would highly recommend Maria Shinn for any legal advice.

Maria not only helped my family with probate, wills and living wills, she had the compassion to come to the hospital to get a signature from my dying husband. Not just once, but twice. Her service was invaluable to my family.

We found Maria a simple Google search as we started to navigate the complex world of becoming same-sex parents to a beautiful baby boy. Maria is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I highly recommend Maria to anyone, but especially to anyone in the LGBTQ community who are parents, interested in becoming parents, or just interested in better affirming your legal rights as a partner. I can't say enough good things about Maria and her work.

Maria was extremely thorough completing our legal paperwork. She was sensitive about our situation and made sure we understood everything. She is the only lawyer that I trust.
