  • Charlotte Rose Ruble

    Shawna was opposing counsel in a difficult custody case. Both parents were actively involved in their children's lives, but had very different parenting views. Shawna vigorously advocated for her client while remaining professional and courteous. It was a pleasure working with her and I look forward to our next case.
