Personable, Professional and Knows Her Stuff
Divorce can be one of the most stressful things you ever do in life. Shana made it easy and understandable. Whether mitigating unrealistic expectations from the other side, answering random questions or just being a sounding board about the frustrations with the process, Shana was always available and quick to come up with a solution. While I never hope to have to go through this process again, Shana is the one person I'm going to call if I have to.

Custody & Child Support Representation
Ms. Curti assisted me in a recent custody and child support matter. She clearly explained my options, rights, and responsibilities throughout the entire process. She was empathetic to my situation, listened to my concerns, and advised me appropriately. With her help, I was able to reach agreements with my ex-husband by the second court appearance (very speedy!). Her extensive experience with the family court system here on Long Island makes her quite knowledgeable about how the court will view particular situations. I would definitely recommend hiring Ms. Curti for family court matters.

The best!
Shana was amazing from beginning to end! I had no idea where to start and was told about her and decided to reach out. She made it stress free by explained the process very clearly and was always available when I had any questions about my divorce. From the time we started it took about 3 months for my ex and I to sign the papers (amicable divorce). I would definitely recommend her! Thanks Shana!

Best Family Court Lawyer
I was referred to Shana Curti by a co-worker who is an attorney as well. I asked for the best family court lawyer and she sent me to the right person. Shana gave me the best advise, guided me through the process, constantly communicated and I won sole legal custody of my daughter. She is amazing, professional, knowledgeable and couldn’t have asked for someone better to fight for me and my child. With my case, she had done her due diligence, kept fighting for the welfare of my child for her to solely be mine legally. If I ever have another issue arise, she’ll be the first call I make. Thank you so much Shana for your time, your effort, your support, and advise. Without you, I couldn’t have done this alone. Emma and I thank you and will always!

Forever grateful
Contacting an attorney to assist with your divorce is no easy thing. You’re going through the lowest point in your life and feel like you’re going to lose everyone and everything dear to you. That’s where an attorney like Shana comes in. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable of the laws and procedures, but she offers intangibles that are hard to find: calmness, honesty, and authenticity. My fears were quickly replaced with confidence and I was ready for the grueling road ahead. From day one I knew exactly what to expect, I was informed of (and consulted on) everything along the way, and eventually all the dominoes fell in place. I am forever grateful for her advocacy on my part, and I highly recommend her.

A Great lawyer & A Great law firm
I’ve never had to consult with or hire an attorney for my personal life. My interactions with Attorneys have only been for business, I say this for a reason, it’s a total different feeling. You have a lot going on in your mind and it’s never easy when it comes a separation/Divorce And Totally let down by your spouse/Partner. I was scared/Sad and everything you could imagine dealing with once a relationship is over. That was till I met Shana. Shana is a great attorney, I was referred to her practice by a dear friend, I was consulted by Shana and after the consult, not only did I feel better about my situation, I hired her on the spot. she is very knowledgeable, understanding and transparent every step of the way. I walked out of her office feeling like myself again. During the few months of court and communication between Shana and my Ex’s attorney my matter was resolved in my favor. I highly Recommend Shana and her law Firm, she is extremely knowledgeable and professional.

Great attorney
Shana recently took care of a divorce for me. What I thought would be a complicated matter turned out to be just the opposite. With all the Covid issues and restrictions going around I was contemplating a long drawn out process. From The start of the process to the divorce papers being finalized in the court and being recorded it took about 4 months without any complications Shana is a great listener she is very professional very friendly and gets the job done. This past week I had her do some other legal documents for me as well. I’m really glad I found her and have only good things to say about my experience with her.

Ms.
Shana Curti was highly recommended to me by colleague of mine. Shana could not have been more sincere, honest, knowledgeable and trustworthy during a very difficult time. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, after years of attempts my marriage failed. Shana guided me every step of the way. She always responded quickly every time I reached out to her with questions. Most of the time I called her I was in a situation that required immediate guidance. Shana is very knowledgeable and always reassured me in a kind and caring way. Prior to my divorce settlement Shana was right on target determining what to expect according to the law. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking divorce.
