Shauna is an honest, professional and caring attorney. She has integrity. Shauna helped me through a difficult dissolution of marriage. She did everything she said she would in a timely fashion. Her staff is great about responding to inquiries and answering questions. I would recommend her to friends and family.

After wasting money on my previous lawyer I came across Shauna through AVVO and was grateful that I did. I had a child custody case that got me so nervous and confused because of the whole legality and I had no idea what rights I had. Upon taking to Shauna, I was immediately put at ease because I knew she understood me right from the start. She was more than what I paid my previous lawyer but I definitely got what I paid for with that one. Shauna is worth every penny as she is compassionate, knowledgable and considerate throughout the process.

I live in Texas and trusted her with every detail of my divorce. It was impossible to take care of business living in Texas 1,700 miles away, so I had to hire someone to take care of my needs and protect me and I feel she did just that.

I hired Mrs. Shauna Albright a few months ago to handle my child support and custody case. I was unsure about hiring a lawyer. My friends had bad experiences but I knew I needed one. What I liked about Mrs. Albright was that she was easy going but knew her stuff. My ex was trying to get more money and say that she made less money. Mrs. Albright was able to prove that my ex was hiding income from her business. I WON MY CASE! I didn't have to pay more child support. Also, she made it possible for me to get additional time with my two kids. I didn't think the system was going to be fair to me but it was and I owe it to Mrs. Albright for her being there for me. She's a great attorney and knows how to argue in court.

Going into my lawsuit, I knew it would be very time consuming and a tough journey. My case was extremely complicated seeing how the mother of my late husband deceived me and obtained custody of my son in Texas, who was 4 at the time. She soon after skipped town and I found her 2 years later in California. After a failed attempt in 2006 in my hometown court to regain custody of my son while I had him on a summer visitation, the grandmother returned with him to California where orders were put into place there. I was given supervised visitations of him just because I tried to do the right thing and hired a rookie attorney from out of town, and the grandmother retained the County's previous District Attorney, whom had served Hood County for over 15 years. He had seniority and favor in the judges eyes so I was never given a fair shot at any chance of regaining my son. Many years passed trying to get my life together and mediate with the grandmother some type of compromise and trying to work with her to give my son back. Finally I was able to obtain legal counsel in March 2013 once my son was able to communicate his wishes to come home and was of legal age to make a choice in court. I had created a profile on Avvo.com and other sites and had spoken to over a dozen attorneys, most of which were unwilling to accept the case or were very distant and uncaring. I received a call one afternoon from a woman that I will always refer to as "God Sent". Gwen Terry, Mrs. Albright's secretary had called me out of the blue and we talked for awhile about my case and the overall situation. This was the moment I knew I had found the perfect person. Within days I had my telephone conference with Mrs. Albright, seeing how I live in Texas. Our 15 minutes went well over an hour. She showed genuine concern, compassion and interest in not just the case but my situation as well, she even cried when I cried. Since I lost my son in 2003 this was the very first time I had ever felt I had someone who cared and was willing to fight the injustice handed to us from the judicial system and "Hometown" Lawyers. She worked with me on the fees and understood my financial situation from being disabled. Over the next few weeks I know I sent probably over 1,000 pages of documents and info to her and her team and they worked tirelessly to get my case going. She obtained emergency orders to go to court and within a month of our first conversation I was in California in front of a judge. I Was filled with hope and confidence in Mrs. Albright and the work her team put into my case. That Monday it was continued, on Thursday of the same week I was back in court with her by my side and won my son back. He is now 14 years old, enrolled in school and doing great. Our case was settled out of court, however I am 100% confident that had it not been for the thorough knowledge of the law and the work put into my Declarations and Supplemental Proofs to show the judge, we would not have settled. I know the grandmother knew she had no chance and finally realized it after seeing all the work put into the case against her. During the process, Mrs. Albright was always available to answer questions and concerns, which I had many. She even called me back on Easter Sunday to give me advice, and one night stayed up past 11pm talking with me trying to reassure me and calm me. Her and Gwen both were angels. Gwen would call just to see how I was holding up and offer her kind words. For the months we worked together they became family to me. I hope to never have a need to use Mrs. Albright again but would recommend her highly to anyone. I never felt put off or uninformed for a moment, I could feel the genuine compassion and earnest drive to win at any cost for my son's sake. I am honored to have worked with her and her team. They honestly restored my faith in the system and there are very few lawyers I have ever spoken with that had heart like her. Compassion, Knowledge and Integrity!

I hired Shauna Albright to represent me in my Child Custody/Divorce case. I could not have hired a better attorney. She has demonstrated herself to be highly professional and extremely knowledgable. Ms. Albright has been detailed oriented inl handling my case. As a legal professional, I was very satisfied with her ability to alleviate my concerns with the legal process. One of her best attributes was to exude a personal commitment. If you need a legal representative that will fight for your rights, I recommend Ms. Albright.

I have hired over 10 attorney during my lifetime for various reason. Mrs. Albright is my second divorce attorney. I wish I would have used her services during my first marriage.She is right on point and protected my interest from the very beginning. She put together a settlement plan that saved me from losing one of my companies. I owe her many thanks!! She has the respect of judges and the clerks in the courtroom. She is professional, highly intelligent, courteous but not a push over. She is a bull dog when she needs to be. She is reasonable and will try to affilitate a settlement. However, if you need her to go to court, she will argue your case very well. The only negative which I do not see as I negative is that she will ask the court to relieve her as the attorney on record if your balance on your bill is unpaid. She will work with you with payments plans so long as it is reasonable. However, she will not give your case all of her attention if you fail to pay and avoid her phone calls. I don't see this as a negative because I wouldn't go to work happily if I were not getting paid. This may be a problem for people who don't like to pay their bill and then want to complain later. However, as I said she is reasonable. She will even reduce your bill if you explain your situation with her. She does alot of pro bono work in the community for people in need.
Mrs. Albright is worth every dime!!

Mrs. Albright is a very knowledgeable divorce attorney. She treated me as if i was the only client she was working with. She took time to explain my case to me, and was always available when i had any questions. Mrs. Albright always made sure i was aware of both the positive and negative aspects of my divorce, and explained all of my rights to me in detail. I would describe Mrs. Albright as a very organized, knowledgeable,dependable, caring attorney. I would refer Albright and assoc. to any of my friends and family, or anyone that I know who needs representation.

I had a very difficult family law case, and felt totally lost until I met Shauna. She didn't just represent me; she guided me through the process and made sure the best interests of my children were upheld. Her preparation, understanding of the law and courtroom presentation were superb. I am a single father and because of that, faced an uphill battle. Shauna helped me get custody of the children, doing so in a way that protected their interests. I give her my highest recommendation.

Once you pay the $8,500 retainer, you get an attorney who is disorganized, forgetful, unresponsive, un-strategic, unethical, and a very poor performer, even to the point of being unfamiliar with family law code. She has a lot of good ideas she puts out, which makes you think you've got effective counsel, but she does not implement them. She seems overwhelmed. She lacks confidence in front of the judge. She arrives late to scheduled court dates. However, she does apologize for the numerous mistakes she makes and is a nice person.

I was disabled and needed my social security disability benefits. I was told that I was not going to receive my disability benefits. I called Ms. Albright and hired her to appeal the decision. She always returned my call and was always there when I needed questions answered. Needless to say, she won my appeal for me. I, now receive my disability benefits. She is extremely intelligent, organized and honest. These are the qualities I was looking for in an attorney and she has them all. Her staff was amazing as well.

Seven months ago, my estranged husband abducted our two children and took them to another state. I am a single mother and have been since my husband and I separated. He received court documents from a court in another state granting him full custody of the children. I had no idea he had even filed documents in another state. I had little money and little time to fight this case. Ms. Albright, without any hesitation helped me out without charging me anything. She prepared my paperwork and gave me advice on how to win my custody battle. I now have my kids back with me and I have custody. If not for her, I don't think I would have my kids back today. She is professional and most importantly, she listens to your concerns.

Ms. Albright was friendly and appeared to be knowledgable when I retained her. My case had become bogged down and was not moving forward and she said she would work my case. I experienced trouble right out of the gate as it took the office 17 days to send the substitution of attorney to my previous attorney. I had requested both in writing and in person to have a subpeona of wages issued by Ms. Albright to my ex's employer. After weeks of calling and speaking to her paralegal, Samantha Rodriquez, I was told that they were in contact with the employer to get the records. Months after I requested the subpeona (and was billed for it) I called the employer myself and found no subpeona was ever submitted. Ms. Albright agreed to make "it" right with me and said she would resubmit the subpeona. Later I contacted the same person at the employer and they said that Ms. Albright had requested via telephone all employee records devoid of any payroll records. I have also been double-billed.
