Mrs. Stein is a great attorney; she has helped me get 50-50 custody. During the X-mas holidays she was on vacation but still kept replying to my emails! She has a great assistant, Miss Kumar, she is also very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend Mrs. Stein to anyone who is seeking help. If I wouldn't be short on finances I'd like to stay with Mrs. Stein.
Thank you Mrs. Stain, I wish you all of the best.

She worked hard on my case. My x-husband & his attorney tried to stretch it as much as possible by delaying paperwork & playing games even the Judge took over a month to sign the Judgement BUT my Attorney kept at it, kept me informed on updates, gave me advice & explained in details what was going on. She was very professional & kept me calm when I'd be upset over the x & his attorney who would not cooperate... Attorney Stein is in a perfect location, easy to get to & plenty of parking, Five months... As of October 5th I am officially Divorced. I am grateful & I couldn't be happier to start my new life thanks to my Attorney.

I contacted Shannon with an aggressive schedule during a holiday season and got response beyond any expectation. The matter was resolved very quickly, professionally and without any delays. Shannon was very responsive over the phone and emails, and was able to accommodate my needs even if it meant for her to come to the office just for me on her day off. If needed again, will definitely go back to her.

Shannon has helped me with a complicated divorce process because it was involved 2 kids under age 18 oversea. Her profession helped my two kids to have safe and secure place to live. My ex-husband and his second lawyer tried to twist the story against me; however, the justice was carried out in the Court. This is the most import thing to me that I did fight in this divorce.
Shannon prepared my documents with caring and careful professional methods. She always presented herself with calm and encouragement attitude. She got things done right away and not delayed them. She was my second lawyer after I had a horrible first one. Shannon helped me turned things around. I trust her judgements and her profession completely. She showed me the light and hope when my first lawyer destroyed my things and just wanted my money.
I don't know how much I should tell people because shannon is the best lawyer in town. She truly care for me. Her kindness heart understands my pain in this divorce process. I do not want to mention how bad my ex was and is but Shannon showed me a positive way to deal with him. Therefore, justice can be served.
Divorce is a very difficult process which can make you mentally and physically impaired. However, a good lawyer as Shannon will ease a lot of obstacles for you. Thank you Shannon from the bottom of my heart. My life can be released from all the pain in the past and put behind me now. Shannon, thank you so much!!!

I was a client of Shannon's for two years and really dissapointed in the manner in which my case was handled. Please take the time to meet with and interview Shannon and ask for references. She is an disengaged in her representation as she appears when she meets you. She made some serious errors on my case. She doesn't check her work, files paperwork with the court with errors and then blames her clients for not catching her mistakes. She charges her clients for "reading" emails from her blackberry while she is in court and fails to respond to time sensitive correspondence. Overall, not organized and I suffered for it as a client

After two previous consultations with other lawyers I made an appointment with Shannon Stein and I have never met a better personable lawyer thus far. Eager to help me with my case, which involved divorce, child support, and alimony. I was feeling defeated before making an appointment with Shannon and was looking at only seeing my son 20% of the time and paying child support. My ex-wife hired a bully of an attorney who never replied to the case until last minute and also changed out the MSA agreement constantly. The opposing basically tried bully me into choosing options that were not fair. With Shannon’s knowledge and professionalism I was able to have my son on a 50/50 schedule and bring to realization that I was owed alimony and child support from the opposing side and finish the divorce on a positive note. Shannon was always available for appointments and responded quickly to all my concerns. Shannon was not concerned about a paycheck and viewed me/my case as a person that needed advice/help. Without the excellent lawyer that Shannon Stein is I would not have been able to see my son as much as I do now, I thank Shannon so much for all her hard work and dedication to my case. I would strongly/highly recommend Shannon as your choice for Lawyer due to her passion for what she does and the compassionate heart she has to help her client’s success. The entire staff at this office is great to work with as well, always giving the best customer service making one feel welcome. Thank you Shannon Stein!

Shannon was hired to help resolve a private school matter involving my 13 year old daughter, other parent was being petty and refused to even discuss the matter! They hired a " big name law firm".
After shannon reviewed the facts she quickly formulated a plan. She even went so far as to unearth some not so conveinent information to present to the judge on the day of the hearing.
Needless to say, we never appeared before a Judge that day at one point it seemed the opposing party was about to have a mini melt down! He had two big-shot attorneys! In a matter of a couple of hours that day my ex caved in completely!!! If Shannon did not have the experience and confidence she demonstrated that day I am certain things would have gone much different.
On a side note, Shannon seemed to be very well known around the Family Law Courthouse. Its obvious and clear that she is very experienced with difficult parties.
My daughter is now thriving in the school we both knew she should be attending! Thank you again for the spectacular and efficient work! Even her hourly rate was extremely reasonable!

I believe that any legal matters would be best handled by a respectful, professional, knowledgeable, and no nonsense lawyer who has a proven expertise and experience in the specific case field. Shannon possesses all these attributes as a Family Court lawyer. In all the direct and indirect interactions I had with her and her team, they were consistently courteous, straight to the fact, and effective. As her client, I trusted her completely and could concentrate to do my part which was to provide her all the information she needed in a timely manner so that she could perform her part well. She did her part exceptionally well and I am very grateful to have found and worked with her and her team in my divorce case.

I had never used a lawyer before and I had a consult with 3 other lawyers before choosing Shannon. I was terrified about going through a divorce and my soon to be ex-husband could out spend me (20 fold) and was very vindictive. My husband came in with a hard talking bully attorney with every dirty trick in the book and I thought I was doomed. Shannon was super calm and didn't back down. She held firm and basically called this other lawyers bull in lawyer terms. I was hoping she knew what she was talking about or I was in trouble. She would reassure me and calm me down when I would call her office after my ex-husband and his lawyer's threats. In the end, she was right. I got out of my divorce in a good position and better than I had hoped. And Shannon was clearly not all about money because she was very fair and worked with me to pay her.
