The best lawyer out there
An incredible lawyer who goes out of her way to do everything possible for you. She emphasized with my situation. I felt like I was working with a friend rather than just my lawyer.
Posted by Drew | December 3, 2012
Professional, knowledgeable and courteous
Attorney Shore has given me sage, real-time advice and legal counsel on a variety of legalities from setting up an LLC to drafting a real estate lease. Aside from being accessible, she's extremely resourceful and has single-handedly taken the stress out of the legal element of my ventures. Even after the legal transactions take place, Shari has always been available for any questions or concerns I may have. Despite needing fairly limited ongoing consultation compared to many businesses and individuals, I've always felt like a valued client of Attorney Shore's.

True Professional!
Not knowing where to even start, I was luckily referred to Shari. We had a great consultation and Shari was able to give me some great advice and information. I would have been lost and in the dark if it wasn't for her professional advice. Thank you Shari!

Smart, professional, helpful, kind
I couldn't ask for a better lawyer or legal team! They helped me navigate the complicated waters of widowhood after my husband died with expertise and compassion. When, recently, another complex event came up in my life, I knew I would get the understanding and advice that I needed. They met with me immediately and helped me think through the problem. For me, it's very comforting to have other women to turn to for legal advice.

House Closing - Great Experience!
Shari and her office completed the closing on our new house. The process went very smoothly, and everyone was great to work with. We were updated and kept in the know along the way and we couldn’t be happier! We would recommend Shari and her firm to anyone looking for an awesome closing lawyer! Thanks again for all of your help!

A+ Service
I’ve worked with Wolf & Shore Law Group on a few different matters. They have handled a closing for me, a small claims matter to rectify a different closing that was handled by someone else, they drafted my estate plan and I consulted with them when I was contemplating a pre-nuptial agreement also. Their entire office has been great to work with and I call Attorney Shore anytime I have a question and she is happy to help. Her experience is evident through her thoroughness with each case and I would highly recommend her, and the whole firm, to anyone in need of representation.

Would Recommend to Family and Friends
I worked with Shari to close on my home. She worked with me in a comfortable environment, well organized, and explained every step of the closing documents without making me feel rushed. She also worked with both real estate agents to settle any issues on the spot. While I don't anticipate buying another home for a while, I would highly recommend her for anyone close to me.

Superb Service
Attorney Shore and her team were absolutely stellar. I had never been through this process before and had many questions, all were answered in a timely manor. I would have thought that I was her only client. She took the time to explain everything in full detail and her extensive knowledge was a complete asset. She took the time to get to know me as a person, listening intently to everything I would say. She really had my best interest in mind. The day of court, I felt completely prepared and she was there for me every step of the way. Attorney Shore is absolutely wonderful!

Seriously, she's AMAZING!
I have been a client of Wolf & Shores for a quite a few years dealing with several difficult/time sensitive matters. They have ALWAYS been super professional, very responsive, and very punctual. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. Shore (as well as her paralegals) are very well educated, respectful, and I personally give them the highest praise. I always feel included with each matter at hand and always feel prepared ahead of time.

Best attorney around
Attorney Shore helped me through a difficult time with a difficult a ex. My ex's demands were unrealistic, unfair and not equitable for our children. Shari made that clear to not only my ex, but her attorney as well. Due to her tenacity, a fair agreement was reached and continues to be working and manageable. You should never go through these situations without an attorney and I'm 100% happy I had Attorney Shore by my side to reach an agreement with a difficult ex. If you're considering her, I highly recommend hearing what she has to offer.

Excellent experience.
I have used Wolf & Shore, LLC on various occasions-for my estate plan, motor vehicle infractions, and also issues with purchasing a property and deed-related issues. Attorney Shore, and her entire office, have always been professional and courteous and have promptly completed my matters. Their service is top-notch and my inquiries were always addressed. Their prices were more than fair for the exceptional value I received. I would certainly retain them again in the future.

She's the best!
Shari and her entire firm made my custody agreements run as smoothly as I could have ever hoped. She was so supportive and knowledgeable and I truly felt like she cared about my case and me the whole entire time. I was confident in my case knowing I had Shari in my corner and everything turned out exactly as I had hoped. I can't thank her and the whole staff at Wolfe and Shore enough. I would highly recommend anyone hire Shari.

Made my post-judgment matter painless
I recently needed to modify my prior parenting plan due to the addition of a new child. I told Attorney Shore that I wanted to keep the matter amicable and she helped me to negotiate outside of court and then we only went to court to finalize the agreement. I really appreciated that she handled the matter the way that I asked her to and that she was non-confrontational to my ex. I think this probably helped keep my fees low too because there wasn't a lot of fighting back and forth. I had a great experience with Attorney Shore and would recommend her to friends or family.
