This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Excellent, Knowledgeable Attorney
Ms. Shellberg is an exceptionally skilled attorney with incredibly good people skills. We hired her to manage our immigration petition and she was not only wonderfully reassuring throughout the entire process and answered all of our many questions and concerns, but she was also impressively successful in achieving all of our goals. Ms. Shellberg was also hired by us for a family matter and she performed expertly throughout the lengthy process and was once again ultimately successful. She is knowledgable, resourceful and frequently thinks outside the box. She is a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond to make her clients feel secure and well cared for. Ms. Shellberg is an incredibly skilled writer and prepares accurate and consise documents with great skill. Additionally, she conducts herself very professionally and appropriately in the courtroom environment. I can not possibly praise her skills as an attorney enough, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone requiring her services.
