Mr McFarland is an excellent attorney, with the utmost in integrity. I have complete satisfaction with his work and that of his staff. He has represented me for over a decade in an ongoing, highly confrontational case, and he has constantly worked to defuse the drama and grief brought on by an adversarial system. Both he and his paralegal are easily accessible, and are excellent at bringing understanding and order to this chaos, and helping his clients gain an understanding and confidence with the process. Mr McFarland's gifts not only include a genuine dedication to his clients, but a pragmatic sense of what can be accomplished, where to compromise, and where to stand your ground. Mr McFarland treats all parties with respect and dignity, and it is clear that Mr McFarland has the respect of his peers in this field of law, which also works to reduce conflict and achieve workable solutions. In fact, Mr McFarland demonstrated a knack for finding mutually acceptable alternatives, not only with a highly adversarial party, but with the many other parties involved in family law disputes, such as Guardians ad Litem, visitation coordinators, doctors, counselors, and CPS and the police. When discussing my experience in family court with others that have been through the divorce process, it is clear that Mr McFarland has consistently had my best interests at heart.

He helped me reach agreements that were best for my situation and did not encourage me to rack up fees that were unnecessary or wasteful. His staff kept me informed and was helpful when I was overwhelmed by the process of my divorce and custody case.

Shane McFarland was the lawyer for my divorce. He took the time to explain what would happen, and helped me to understand the process. I found him to be affordable, professional and timely in his responses. His assistant also showed the same level of professionalism and care. I would recommend him to anyone who is not quite sure how to proceed from here. He and his staff helped to make this not so great experience go as smoothly as possible.

Hard to communicate with and didn't offer, advise, or instruct me with any legal advice. Didn't take the case serious which was obvious in his work

Shane handled my very complex divorce and child custody case with ease and professionalism. He is very easy to talk to, and his legal assitant is excellent. They took my extremely difficult situation and helped me turn my life around. They treated me with patience, compassion and respect. I interviewed 3 attorneys before choosing Shane. He stood out from the others because he cared about the welfare and safety of my children and me above all else, not so much the value of my estate. I have the highest respect for Shane and have noticed he is highly respected by his peers and the judges. He and his assistant helped make this difficult time in my life a positive turning point. The terms he negotiated for my final settlement were incredible. I'm so grateful to them both for all of their help.
