I hired Vicki to work out a prenuptial agreement with my fiance. From the start, Vicki noted how the relationship and my family would always come first. Throughout the year process there were definitely ups and downs, and throughout these I saw how she really did put our relationship and family first. She offered great advice, next steps, and would suggest breaks when needed. Vicki was patient and very knowledgable and although she was representing me, I felt that she understood my partner and his wants and demands and how we could come to a mutually beneficial agreement. I always appreciated her patient approach to working out a solution. And her experience in her field really shows!

I retained Vicki Shemin for assistance with a prenuptial agreement, as I trust her years of family law experience. Since it is quite difficult to entertain the idea of ending your marriage right as you are starting it, I was grateful to have Vicki's guidance. While I had come into the process thinking I had some idea of what my fiancé and I wanted, Vicki quickly raised many safeguarding issues we had not even thought to consider. I appreciated the fact that she walked us through the process, gave me the information I needed while also helping me in weighing options as a future married couple, while also advising me of my own rights under the law. While she always advocated for my needs, she never made the process adversarial and worked collaboratively with my husband and his attorney. Not only is Vicki a consummate professional and an expert in her field, she also has a calming and compassionate demeanor. She made a potentially difficult experience as easy and pleasant as possible and allowed us to enter our marriage without the tension this process can bring.

I worked with Vicki for my entire divorce, and couldn't have been more pleased with her work. She gave me a steady stream of wise input while maintaining her patience and sense of humor throughout what proved to be a difficult and contentious divorce. I highly recommend Vicki, especially if you are interested in a collaborative process, which is absolutely her strength.

I am a mental health professional who has consulted with Attorney Shemin for a number of years, and I know her to be "the whole package." As both an attorney and a social worker, her expertise in custody litigation is informed by great sensitivity and cognizance of interpersonal dynamics. She has been an extremely valuable resource with regard to legal standards, principles, and the very latest court decisions, and I am confident that her practice is state-of-the art. Alongside her legal savvy is wisdom. She is the rare professional who knows when to take the tough, hard line, and when compassion is called for.

Vicki is warm, skilled and a pleasure to work with. If you're going through the difficult transition of divorce, it's great to have someone who understands so well the emotional AND the legal aspects.

I have known Attorney Shemin in a Consultation capacity. I am a forensic psychologist who has called Vicki with complex questions concerning family law. Vicki is thoughtful and always ask the right questions to fully flesh out a case. She is able to gather information in a probative manner and able to formulate a case well. She has a significant amount of information at her fingertips - and if she doesn't know she says so and then gets answers. She is immensely helpful both in grasping the essentials of a case and helping determine the best path to pursue. She is smart, savy, and a great listener. She is able to succinctly offer information that gets to the "heart" of a situation with very helpful resolution.
