Contract and Employment
Shiven is trustworthy and professional. He called right on time for our appointment and explained his duty with regard to attorney-client confidentiality. I’m an attorney, so I know how it works, but he didn’t take that for granted. I so appreciated that he tended to me as his client and with complete professionalism. My complicated questions were answered during that phone call. He said he’d follow up with me via email, and he did. I’m so relieved to gain insight to my legal issue. He provided an explanation of each process, the potential timeframe, and made clear suggestions on how to move forward. So grateful for Shiven!

Former Client
Shiven represented my daughter and I in an special education case last year. He did it Pro Bono. He was very communicative and willing to go above and beyond to help me and my daughter. He ultimately helped us in getting what we wanted from the school district. He is phenomenal!

He was very professional and respectful regarding his communication and is very well versed in the subject matter. He also went above and beyond to ensure he provided quality work and advice on decisions regarding my responses to my employer. I would definitely work with him again.
