I was referred to Shauna by a colleague for my move-away case. My child's Father and I currently had a 50/50 custody arrangement and I was seeking primary custody. Shauna was up-front about everything and did not "sugar coat" any possible outcomes. She showed a geuine care and concern for my situation, which I had not seen in previous lawyers I had met with (which was why I usually opted to "do it myself.")Child custody cases are never easy, but they are very scary- especially when they deal with YOUR child, or any loved one for that matter. She explained how this process would be, and kept me "in the loop" as much as possible via phone/email. Despite having to actually move away before the trial date, and later coming back to the area- Shauna and Deloris took great care of me. They ensured all the court documents (which can overwhelming to look at) were in order, which allowed me to keep my sanity preparing for court. Hiring Shauna was not cheap by any means; but there is a saying "you get what you pay for." She was very dedicated to my case and we were able to get the outcome we had hoped for! I highly recommend Shauna for any family law issues.
When my ex took me to court, I was nervous and unsure of how to handle things, but Shauna and Deloris both worked with me, helped me, and made me feel better about the situation. Shauna understood my issues and pressed forward with confidence. I am content with the settlement Shauna got for me, and greatly appreciate all that was done to help me. I definitely feel I had the better attorney of the two of us, and am grateful it worked out in my favor to the extent it did.
Relationship went from courteous to unresponsive to disinterested and finally to where it seemed she was a better advocate for the other side. Good showing at the first meeting, then a rapid spiral downward to the point I could no longer suffer the poor representation and I fired her.
If your spouse gets the lawyer you wanted to retain, I'd strongly suggest finding a different second choice than this one.
I would hire her again. Honest, hardworking, quick on her feet in court.
