Hired Shelly because she is the best. Can sum up information and gets on the ball as soon as possible. I am so thankful for all she is doing and has done to help in my legal problems. (And we won round 1).

I hired Shelly after having an attorney that kept me in the dark about my own rights. She helped me feel like I CAN ask questions and I CAN feel like I can fight for my kids rights. Instead of just dealing with situations.

Shelly is a true professional! Articulate and savvy, Shelly has the right mix of lion and lamb, she is fearless when she needs to be, and soft and kind when the situation calls for it. Shelly defended me in a child custody case where the opposing attorney and her client both lied and asked the children to lie. She encouraged me to stay above the "ugly" and she would deal with the rest. And she delivered. Shelly is well connected to the right outside professionals and was able to bring in the right experts to assist us. I would also like to mention that Shelly, unlike previous attorneys did not gouge us with legal fees, she was aware of our budget and never took advantage of us in any way! If you want an attorney who will fight FAIR for you, I highly recommend Ms. Collette.

Shelly is an outstanding litigator. She is focused and resolution-oriented, with an eye for detail and a philosophy of dedication to her clients.I was privileged to work with her as a law clerk prior to obtaining my license and I learned a great deal from her energy, enthusiasm and passion for practice. I would recommend her to any of my clients.
