  • Sally A. Lanham

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked with Shelley for more than 5 years. I find her to be thoughtful, concerned about her clients and very knowledgable about her areas of concentration. She is much more than an estate planner and has all the practical common sense that it needed to guide clients through this difficult area.
