I would like to thank Shana Black for helping me through my uncontested divorce. From the moment i first spoke to her till now she has been such a pleasure to work with. I am grateful to have a lawyer like her and her firm to back me up. I really have nothing but the nicest things to say about this law firm. I highly recommend them, especially if your going through a rough divorce as I did. She kept in touch with me every step of the way, always answered my questions quickly. Thanks again Shana for the amazing to work with.

Shana J Black has been wonderful!! My divorce is complete & it has been unexpectedly easy. She was able to break down all of the legal jargon & helped me understand the process. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome & my experience. I would highly suggest her & the firm to anyone!!

Shana J Black was professional, courteous, understanding and available. There is no doubt that she's always on top of the legal aspects involved in the case. Unfortunately the other party created drama and issues that were unnecessary and I must say that Shana was always open and available to help. They answer their phones and return messages. There are never winners in this deal but I can say that we achieved everything I was striving for. I would recommend Shana and thank her for all of her hard work.

I recently hired Shana for family divorce. Her legal team looked out for my best interests at all times. Her ability to listen and address my personal and financial concerns through a calm approach was worth its weight in gold. I will absolutely hire her again for any of my legal needs.

Attorney Shana B. was my representative in my recent child custody case. As a law professional, all I can say is that Attorney Shana J. is an outstanding one – competent, diligent, knowledgeable and very thorough. She is also accessible and promptly returns emails and phone calls. She would even arrange meetings that would accommodate my schedule. Even with her other cases, she made me feel that mine was important as well. She is easy to talk to and overall a nice person.

I worked with Shana on a recent child custody case and child support with my daughter and ex-husband. It was a great experience for she was able to promptly and properly address all the concerns I had and responded to them almost immediately. She also explained to me the process and was very helpful both off and on the court. On the court, Shana is aggressive – a go getter. Off the court, she is kind and very friendly. She excelled in everything that she did and do I need to she stayed on top when the case ended.

I am taking this opportunity to thank Shana, my attorney, for handling my very complicated divorce. She managed to work out an agreement that was fair and equitable without the rancor and bitterness that so often accompanies these trying situations. She displayed hard work, integrity, knowledge, and empathy. And finally, it was her accessibility and perseverance that led to such a great outcome. Now I left California and moved to New York to start a fresh new life and find the right mother for my kids!

I was surprised to see such mixed reviews. My personal experience has been nothing but positive and a wonderful experience in helping me get 100% Custudy of my child. Shana has shown her professionalism and expertise in this area.

I though I was going through my worst when the divorce came onto me. Shana seemed very friendly, talking about her single mother and woman issues that made me trust her.
I then read yelp reviews and openly discussed the negative reviews about her and she assured that it was a bad client who did not get the judgement in their favor.
I decided to give her a try due to her enthusiasm and myself being a woman, I wanted to have hope in another person.
She started with a bang and became unresponsiveness with reasons of illness, daughter etc etc.
by the end of my second deposit to her and about 3 months into the case, she wound not respond to my phones, emails for weeks, then months. It was a torture. real torture waiting for a response. worse I had moved to Seattle so I paid around sis expensive tickets to fly down and meet her on her slightest appt set up week but there was no show up. she would suddenly be quiet them for another long time.
By end of 7 months into the case, I realized the torture and game she was playing. I finally appeared to the court myself and asked her to quit from the case.
She is the worst lawyer. I have worked with @ 6-8 lawyers on different issues, like work, property, IRS etc, but she is real crappy.
CRAPPY AND VERY IRRESPONSIBLE. She does not understand ethics and is giving me a hard time to return my huge deposit she has now with her.

The absolute worst divorce attorney. I relied upon the reviews posted online and speaking with Ms. Black before hiring her and it was a mistake. I will begin with the bait/switch of a car salesperson. Someone that hooks you in with lengthy phone calls and an initial meeting and then doesn't bother replying or following up after you've paid the retainer. You receive no monthly accounting statements to reflect what services you've paid. My ex and I have been amicable and settled everything neatly, however Ms. Black is pre-occupied with her personal life (which is what she wrote me in an email) that she won't return phone calls, emails or respond for months at a time. One of the most painful times of your life should be made easier by a licensed/paid attorney. In Ms. Black's case, it is not. I have spoken with three other clients of Ms. Black's who testify to the same treatment. This person should not be practicing law if she discriminates against clients by choosing which ones she responds to and those to disregard. I would rather have my money back and move on to someone else who really has their clients best interest in mind.
