Excellent Attorney!
Shayna helped me navigate the complex and often contentious family law court system. She was responsive, well prepared and tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. She practices law with high moral and ethical standards. I will be forever grateful to Shayna for helping me defend my parenting rights and recommend her without hesitation. Thank you Shayna.

Phenomenal Bulldog in court!
I won! I won EVERYTHING! Thank you Shayna Cavanaugh for always looking out for my kids best interests. Entirely because of you... I can now play hide and go seek with my kids. I can now read them We're Going on a Bear Hunt at night again. I can feed them breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I can walk them to the school bus and pick them up. I can make healthcare and education decisions on their behalf. I can be there 24/7 and hug them when they cry. I can kiss every one of their boo boos. Their suffering has ended! With all my heart... I love you for what you have done for my kids and what you accomplished for me as a father.

Best Divorce Lawyer
Shayna has a thorough knowledge of Family Law and is compassionate in helping women & children in DV cases. As difficult as the process of divorce, child support and visitation issues can be, Shayna goes above and beyond to ensure everything is finalized in the best interests of all parties. I have used her services post divorce for Family Court and have always been satisfied and have referred friends.
