Shawna was a Godsend. I was fortunate enough to be referred to her while I was pregnant with my daughter, who's father was less than receptive to her imminent arrival into the world. I had never needed an attorney for anything in my life before and even as a grown adult, established in my career, I felt alone and afraid. Shawna was kind, patient and simultaneously matter of fact and compassionate. She walked me through everything, and answered all of my questions and more. She was always mindful of my tight budget doing her best to stretch my dollar as far as possible. She did not tolerate any paternal attempt to diminish support and made it clear what was and was not acceptable on his part. I could not be happier with the expertise and skill she provided.

I retained a significant law firm to represent me and they completely blew me off. Ms. Woods was able to turn the case around.
I owe her for that.

Shawna Woods is incredibly experienced, professional, and compassionate! She helped my loved one gain primary custody of his three year old son when other attorneys told him it was next to impossible. She fought for what was right and through her knowledge, tenacity, and expertise my nephew is in a safe, stable, loving environment where he is thriving. Thank you, Shawna Woods!
William Head, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
Shawna is a fighter, and LOVES being in court. That reputation is why and how she is able to successfully handle domestic and family law cases with such skill. A self-starter with good instincts and even better judgment. Hire her with confidence.
Charlotte Ruble, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
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.
