    Bankruptcy case

    I hired Mr. Shaw for my bankruptcy. I was in a financial crisis and extremely overwhelmed at that time. He eased all of my concerns and seemed genuinely concerned. The staff simplified the process which at first appeared daunting. I would highly recommend him for legal help. He is fair, honest and very intelligent. I have recommended him to other family and friends because I know first-hand that he is trustworthy and capable.

    Class A Attorney!

    I decided to use Mr. Shaw regardless of the negative comments on this website as I was referred from a good friend who had used Mrhim in the past. I am happy to say that not only did he win my case, he proved that he is a great attorney and was very knowledgeable in criminal law. I would suggest anyone seeking legal advice to give him a shot!! Thank you Mr. Shaw!

    Very Satisfied Divorce and Custody Client

    Ed Shaw was a fantastic lawyer to have on my side while I was going through a very difficult divorce and custody issue. He always kept me informed and reassured me through every aspect of the process. He always responded to my calls and emails promptly and was very professional while in court. He got me a terrific outcome on my case and I would definitely recommend him to anyone going through a difficult family matter! Thank you Ed!

    Chapter 7 client

    Ed knew the ins and outs of my Federal chapter 7 case and helped me do all of the pre-filing things I needed to do in order to avoid a chapter 13 that I never could have afforded. While not a complex bankruptcy by any means, there was enough going on to where I needed Ed's expertise and he provided it at a fair price. Ed and Marcia called and emailed any time I had a development in my case and promptly responded to my many questions.

    Good divorce lawyer

    I hired Ed for my divorce. My husband and I had been living separate lives for quite some time, but just hadn't filed for divorce. Ed fit me in as a walk-in appointment and met with me immediately. He let me know the divorce process and made it much less scary to think about. From start to finish he let me know what was going on and his staff was always available to help. I greatly appreciated his help on this.

    Never hire attorney Edward Shaw!

    All he cares about is pocketing your cash. Once he runs through your original agreed upon retainer (rarely less than $2500) he sends you monthly bills in the mail. I had an outstanding balance of $32 which I paid, and he wanted me to send in another retainer for $800. When i questioned his secretary, he sent me a post dated motion removing himself from my case as a ransom for the money! This man is the worst kind of sleaze!

    Edward Randolph Shaw’s response: “Francine, I regret that our relationship seemed to have ended poorly. I do my best to be reasonable with retainer fees, but some cases and matters do have costs above and beyond the original retainer amount. This would have been specified in the fee agreement that we both signed. I appreciate your feedback on this issue. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.”

    Excellent, professional representation

    I was not looking forward to having to filing for bankruptcy protection, but when I had to do it, Ed and his staff helped make it as easy as possible. They were great in making sure I had every detail covered and I felt well prepared as a result. They helped guide me through any questions I had while filing, and kept me very well informed as to what to expect. Marcia deserves praise for a job well done, and Anna really went above and beyond, driving thru a blizzard to help in my representation. (Thank you again Anna!!) I could not be happier with the service I received.

    disappointing

    I did not find him very helpful in the process I was going thru. I had to ask pointed questions and that wasn't something I should have had to do. Wasn't forthcoming. And a good lawyer would tell you where you should start. Give you the process and help you thru it. He did not. Was not satisfied. I would would keep looking if I were you.
