A Life Savior
I am beyond thankful to have had Mrs. Shako as an Attorny. If Mrs. Shako is representing you, rest assured that you are in great hands. During trial, she literally controlled the court room. She is well respected by the Judges. It was easy to see who the lead attorny was in the courtroom. I will never forget Mrs. Shako and i hope the most high blesses her for assisting me save my younger brother life.

Thank you so much Mrs. Shako
Mrs. Shako was the best attorney I have ever come across because without her, I would be under the jail right now. From day one I had confidence in her and she walks me through everything and she took the time to answer my many questions. Her fees are reasonable and she provide zealous representation and that combination is hard to come around. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a defense attorney.
