Helping me start up my company. Shoffner and Associates where incredible. Freya is a force of nature, but also very down to earth. Looking forward to life long relationship with Shoffner and Associates.

Freya does twice as much and better!
The non-profit I lead needed an attorney. We're located in a small town out of state and no local attorney would bother with our cause or our case. Freya listened to us and our needs. Since she accepted our case, the legal service we receive from her and her office is excellent and thorough, at prices we can afford - and at prices other attorneys scoff at. Her reports are the most informative and easily understood I've ever read.

Ms. Shoffner has been consistently honest, straight forward, trustworthy and fair in her work for me, members of my family and friends. Issues are taken care of in a timely fashion and billing has been consistent with the work delivered. If something is not in my best interest, she tells me - even though a less reputable lawyer might go for the $$ instead. She has successfully handled Real Estate transactions, Wills and the legal work needed upon my husband's death. I have never had to think twice about recommending her services to anyone needing a lawyer and have done so whenever the question arose. If you are looking for a "Good and Honest Lawyer" she is one of that rare breed. Don't hesitate.
