Throughout a very difficult and lengthy divorce proceeding, Patty was more than just my lawyer. She was my guide through a difficult and painful legal marathon. She always had time to explain complex legal problems and actions to me in a way that I could process and understand. Her help and caring as well as her amazing legal expertise and knowledge allowed me to focus on the rest of my life knowing that all the legal matters pertaining to my divorce were in her capable hands. I can honestly say, I would not be where I am in my career or in my life if I had not had her to lean on during the pendency of my divorce proceedings. She listened to all my concerns and helped me understand what things were important and what things I needed to let go of. I cannot recommend her more highly for her professionalism, caring, and legal expertise.

Walking through a divorce will be the most stressful thing that you will ever have to navigate. I would not have made it through this process without Patty's wisdom, experience and incredible knowledge and understanding of not only the law, but of my situation. She brought calm and clarity to a situation that was highly stressful. When it came time to go before the judge I was absolutely blown away by Patty. She commanded the room. She had researched complex international law and explained it in a way that I believe even the judge learnt from. She used her words as a sword to pierce right to the heart of the issues. I was incredibly impressed, and you will be too.

When Patricia Shewmaker was recommended to me I didn't know what to expect. What I found out was the I was being represented by and experienced and personable attorney who was compassionate and considerate to my needs. I felt comfortable and was reassured during the whole process. Her expert advice guided me through the process without feeling the anxiety that accompanies the divorce process. If I had to choose an attorney again rest assure it would be Patricia and her firm.

Mrs. Shewmaker was phenomenal with her advice and knew immediately what actions I needed to take. I didn’t have to wait for her to get back with me while she researched my complex issues of international relocation with my minor children. Her knowledge of my situation was really comforting after talking with several other attorneys that did not have a firm answer on what needed to be done. I would absolutely use Mrs. Shewmaker for any child custody or parenting plan modification issues.

Ms Shewmaker (Patty) is "AWESOME"! She helped me with a very difficult contempt of (divorce) court action that involved military retirement benefits. Her knowledge of the laws, her preparation, and her patients and candor with me were most impressive. Her professionalism and court room presence stood head and shoulders above opposing counsel. Suffice it to say, all of the above led to a win although the odds were not in my favor. Great job! I highly recommend her services.

I was lucky enough to have a friend recommend Patty Shewmaker as an attorney during an extremely difficult time for my family. I have to say that I attribute the positive outcome of my case and the continued well being of my family to Patty. She is professional, compassionate, knowledgeable and extremely dedicated to her clients. She led me through what could have been a bitter and prolonged process with dignity and respect and achieved an outcome that was far better than could have reasonably been expected. My case involved not just myself but small children as well as a senior citizen. Patty's knowledge of the law and her concern for the emotional and physical well being of our entire family was extraordinary. She lead us through a complex and daunting process in such a way that there was minimal disruption in our lives... which was of the utmost importance to me and my children. I just cannot say enough... other than if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing a family lawyer please do yourself a favor and have a conversation with Patty before making any final decisions.

I hired Shewmaker and Shewmaker a few months ago to handle my family law case. Patty has more legal knowledge than any attorney I know, and I know a lot of attorneys. On more than one occasion, I personally witnessed multiple experienced attorneys turn to Patty for guidance on the law. Most people do not think about what could happen after a judge issues a ruling; however, there is always a risk for an appeal that can reverse a judgment and ruin everything the trial attorney accomplished. Moreover, if any case moves to an appeal it can continue to cost money. Patty’s knowledge of the law and procedure is utterly complete in my humble opinion.
If you are looking for an attorney that has a pure legal mind and will reduce your chances of a higher court reversing the trial court’s ruling (which also reduces your costs), Patty is a must have in your corner.

"I am writing to thank you for the outstanding work you did for me. Words cannot give my appreciation. You were superbly efficient and professional. Your foresight on all matters on my case was truly remarkable. I owe the success and victory of my case to your dedication and perseverance, which you showed while handling my case. It goes without saying that I will always refer to your firm if the need ever arises that I shall need any legal assistance again. Once again my heartfelt thanks and appreciation."

Patricia Shewmaker and her husband and law partner Steven Shewmaker handled my divorce in Atlanta, Georgia. I was a military spouse for the full 20 years of my former husband's active duty. The Shewmakers led me through the divorce process with a commanding knowledge of my military rights and benefits and gave me the all important confidence that the proper military paperwork would be filed to receive these benefits.
It can be very difficult to find a lawyer that has the specific knowledge of the military rules that directly effect the benefits issued in a military divorce. Not only do both Patricia Shewmaker and Steven Shewmaker have that expertise, they also lecture and teach this law.
I feel very fortunate to have had them represent my interests in this matter. They treated me with respect and gained my respect in return.
