Shelley has been an exceptional resource with an incredible amount of intelligence in her field. Her knowledge in the areas of wills and estate planning are second to none. Her office was very warm and inviting and so were her personnel. I have been incredibly pleased to get acquainted with her and have all of my questions answered in a timely manner to make sure that everything went smoothly. Anybody who needs to update their will should have no problem getting it done quickly and with ease using Shelley. A+++

Shelley is an amazing attorney. She assisted in my business. I actually don't know what I would have done without her. She is fair, knowledgeable, the most trusting person I know!!! That is usually not the case for attorney's I have worked with in the past.
I have and will continue to recommend all her services to friends, family, coworkers and anyone that needs an attorney.
She also can help assist in recommending other attorneys if she can't help.
