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 worked tirelessly in our case to get opposing counsel and several judges to see the importance of a Father in his children's lives. She was a strong voice for the children, by recognizing that children need their fathers for more than shelling out money. She never stopped trying and she showed so much compassion and integrity throughout the painful ordeal. We will always be grateful for her hard work, yes, but her kindness.

I spoke with shelly about my son's case. very long story and i don't want to go into much detail. but i will say she is the most kind hearted woman i have ever met. she gave great advice and helped me prepare not only in court with evidence but also mentally and emotionally for future court appearances. she answered all of my questions, even if i had already asked. she was also very informative. she made a rough time in my life, not be as bumpy as expected. and even though i ended up not needing to hire her in the end, i will always keep her in mind for future references. thank you so much shelly.

Shelly is amazing. She helped me win custody of my daughter. My child's father was coming up with stories left and right but Shelly saw through the BS and proved that it was a bunch of lies. Her main focus is what's best for the child. I would recommend her to anyone.

Ms. Collette failed to appear for 2 court cases one was my trial date. When she did decide to show up she was always at least an hour late. She never returned one phone call that was made I had to track her down at her residence/office, but she never had any information for me. I ended up having to hire new counsel that cost me a lot of money on top of the money in which she was paid. She way over charged and did nothing for me! I am very disappointed with her services and I do not recommend and would not refer to ANYONE!

Ms. Collette represented me in a criminal case months ago and I must say i was very pleased. Along with being on time and very prepared for the case, she gave me the peace of mind that everything would be okay. I recommend Ms. Collette to anyone who has any doubt in their case. Again, great representation. Keep up the good work Ms.Collette.

With my child custody/divorce case Shelly used the nice guy approach, which at first I didn't understand. But saw why later on. While the other party and his lawyer were taking what I consider the wrong approach she wasn't moved nor did she stoop to their level or back down. She kept me highly informed of everything involving my case, even when I asked her the same question a million times. The other parties were throwing everything they possibly could at me and I was losing faith, Shelly turned it all around. She is the kind of Lawyer that will tell it to you like it is while providing great legal advice in doing so. My case was settled with an agreement by choice. When the other party went against the agreement already in place Shelly's genius approach she had written in the order (that she informed me of but I didnt fully pay attention to, silly me) threw even me off guard. If you want to retain the best lawyer I believe there is go with Shelly Collette.

Shelly is a fabulous attorney. She fights strongly for you when she believes in you. I have been with her at 3 different law firms because she truly cares about my case, after several who just didn't want to deal with my ex-wife's attorney and encouraged me to settle. Shelly is not intimidated and she saw my ex wife for EXACTLY what she was/is-a parental alienator. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law and unlike other attorneys, is extremely ethical as well. She was able to call a time out when I'd be furious over my exes latest antics and redirect me down the right path. She found the right experts to prove her alienation and has been able to calmly and articulately expose the many inaccuracies that my ex and her attorney had put forward. She is a strong advocates for both moms and dads, but her main focus is what's right for the child. We have referred many clients going through contentious situations to Shelly, and she is always open to reaching a compromise. Unfortunately, she has never been able to accomplish this with the other side. Very professional and dedicated.
