    • I recommend Maria Shinn.
    • I hired Maria 6-12 months ago.
    • Maria handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    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.
