knowledgeable divorce lawyer
Shane and his team were very responsive and quick. He made the process smooth for me and was available to answer questions as things came up in my divorce. Plus he had an hour-long consult with me before I hired him and did not feel rushed at anytime!

Highly Recommend!
Hiring Shane Herbert was one of the best and most important decisions I have made in my life. I consulted with and researched many of Orlando's top family law practices. I chose Shane because he was able to meet with me and patiently explain the entire process of divorce and listen to my concerns with genuine empathy. He's one of those people that you meet and instantly know that he's descent, honest and has your back. The communication throughout was timely and clear. His negotiation skills during mediation were excellent. I am extremely satisfied with the results. If you are in need of a great attorney, I implore you to call Shane. You will be glad you did.

Grateful and Excellent experience
First off, thank you Atty. Herbert! Very appreciative for his time and service as he was professional, knowledgeable, attentive, kind and genuine. Our situation is a bit more complex and through the entire process he was calm, straight to the point and provided great advice. I can’t say enough good things about him, the reviews says it all but you absolutely must spend time with him to truly understand how wonderful he is and his team, it will be the best decision anyone will ever make- just meet/speak with him and you’ll understand why. There is no doubt your time and money will be well spent.

Family Law attorney Shane Herbert is reliable, communicates really well and will not let you down.
The brilliance of this attorney is remarkable. I hired Herbert law after my x-wife had sued me for a divorce. I was suddenly presented with some really complicated decisions to make in a really short period of time. I eagerly committed to Herbert Law after speaking to several attorney's to learn who I thought would be there when I needed them the most to present sound and realistic legal advise. I couldn't of make a better choice. This law firm and Shane Herbert delivered everything they said they would deliver and more. When things got heated up with other lawyers or other's in general Shane and his calm nature was the one that took charge and literally got things done for both side's. Divorce is by nature a messy, nerve racking experience, It's a horrible thing to go through but once your in it your basically at the mercy of your attorney's it'd be best to have one you can depend on....My advice to anyone looking to hire a family law attorney is Hire Shane Herbert. You wont be disappointed. For Character, personality and positive results There is no better attorney.

Supportive Divorce Representation
My experience with Shane was excellent. Throughout representing me for my divorce he was attentive and always quick to respond to any questions I had along the way. His communication was thorough and he truly helped guide me through the process with ease. I had selected him because of his high reviews and recommendations and I am now glad to say I can be one of those clients that can give him a glowing review.

Response from Shane Herbert March 9, 2021
I appreciate you taking the time to complete this review! Yes, when the situation calls for a very specific or particularly complicated issue in real estate, finance, or otherwise-it is sometimes helpful to seek the help of another professional in that area of expertise. This was definitely helpful in ultimately resolving your case. Thanks again!

Experienced and professional
I have worked with Shane both at his prior position with West Family Law Group, and his current independent practice. I have found him to be highly responsive, communicative, and professional. His calm demeanor is certainly an asset during contentious matters of family law. His fees are reasonable, and anyone who hires him can be confident that they will receive skilled and experienced representation.

Stepparent Adoption
Where to begin... My husband and I began the process for a stepparent adoption in August 2020 without any representation. My daughters biological father was never in the picture (never signed her birth certificate, never claimed paternity with the putative father registry and never filed for any custody/ child support) and made only a handful of attempts to contact us throughout her 12 years. After we initially filled, we located her bio dad and reached out to him in hopes he would sign away his rights in which he agreed to until the day came and he changed his mind. We decided to proceed and have him served with a notice of adoption which he had 21 days to respond to. On day 21 he submitted to the courts his rejection of the stepparent adoption... that’s when we made over 30+ phone calls to different family law attorneys across Florida. When I made contact with Shane I knew right away he was the attorney for us! I’m a no Bullsh*t kind of gal and after having dealt first hand with multiple attorneys for a separate family matter in the past I wasn’t looking for someone who would tell us what we wanted to hear but instead someone who told facts and didn’t mind putting in the work researching the laws to get us where we needed to be! Our initial phone call with Shane was refreshing! He was to the point, calm / not aggressive (nothing is more frustrating than an attorney using scare tactics to get you to hire them), knowledgeable and more than willing to do his research to find out exactly how he could help. We set up a meeting to interview Shane (I say interview because like I said I’m not one to put my trust into just anyone especially for something as huge as this!). We spent 2 hours in his office discussing everything that had been filed up until that point, bio dads relationship and what our game plan would be going forward if we decided to retain him. He gave us a ton of info and even went on to tell us how we may not even need bio dads permission as he never filed paternity and therefore had no legal rights. We retained Shane that day on September 16,2020. He kept us fully informed at all times over the next month and was quick to respond to any questions we had during that time. On October 19,2020 he set a time for a case management hearing that was scheduled for mid November. November 19, 2020 we prepared for our case management hearing which due to Covid was done over ZOOM. The judge, Shane, bio dad, myself and husband were all in attendance. Once we entered the conference via ZOOM and after about 10 minutes of Shane explaining our case and bio dad giving his reasons (or should I say excuses!) of why he never stepped up, the Judge made the decision right there that 12 years was long enough and bio dads permission in fact WAS NOT NEEDED based on the law Shane presented him with and the final stepparent adoption hearing was to be set. I keep playing that SUPER UNEXPECTED moment in my head over and over again and I just want to cry.... literally one of the best moments of my life! Shane calls us immediately afterwards letting us know his plans to get with the judges assistant immediately to schedule the final hearing. Guys, if you haven’t retained Shane just from the above break down... GET READY! Not even 24hrs later, Shane got back to us with a date set for our final adoption hearing which was to take place in 5 freakin days!!!!! Y’ALL, SHANE IS ON TOP OF HIS SH*T!!!! Today is November 24, 2020...my husbands birthday and the day he LEGALLY became the father to our daughter! Shane, words can not even begin to explain how thankful we are for you! You have changed our lives forever! If you ever find yourself in need of a family attorney, look no further! Shane’s genuine personality, honesty and strong work ethic is what makes him an amazing attorney and anyone would be extremely fortunate to have him by there side representing them through the situation that matters most!

Shane Herbert, Attorney at Law
Shane helped me to get a divorce which was very difficult as my ex husband didn’t want it and kept dragging it. Shane was always on top of my case and responsive to any emails/calls. He explained things in a way that helped me understand my options and most of all, advocated for my best interests. I think he did a very good job. Thank you Shane!

Fantastic Family Lawyer
I found Shane in 2015 when my high-conflict marriage was culminating in a high-conflict divorce. Coming from a family of lawyers, I was sent to West Family Law where Mr. West introduced Shane as his “prodigy” — Shane didn’t disappoint. He made the process as fast and painless as possible and secured the best settlement and custody agreement he could at the time. In the years that have followed, Shane has stayed current on my case and never misses a call when conflict re-appears, regardless of the time. Shane’s naturally calm demeanor is bolstered by his detailed knowledge of family law and his endgame, big-picture thinking. His trust in the law’s process gives him patience that I don’t often have with my ex. “It’s not enough to win [a custody hearing] yet,” he’s tells me. “But keep track of everything until it is. Otherwise, you’ll spend thousands of dollars for an uncertain outcome.” Last summer, Shane represented me in a mediation for better co-parenting. While nerves and anger at my ex’s outlandish accusations and requests got the best of me, Shane stayed as calm, cool, and collected as always. He was able to implement new procedures and protocols for communicating with my ex that should not only give me peace when dealing with my ex, but peace of mind when my son is with her. He genuinely has the best interest of my family at heart.

Great Representation!
I hires Shane to help with a very difficult and nasty divorce after my first attorney dropped the ball several times. I could have not been more impressed with Shane professionalism, negotiation tactics and knowledge of the law. He was able to get the divorce settled without having to go to court and negotiated an agreement that worked for everyone. Shane is the one of the most detailed oriented attorneys I’ve ever worked with.

But Shane also possesses a great deal of common sense and he effectively approaches legal issues from not just the legal analysis side, but also from a practical perspective. And he is self-possessed and has a great court room demeanor, to boot. A mediator with many years of experience as a lawyer/mediator recently told me that she was extremely impressed with how Shane handled recent mediations at her office, as well as with his knowledge of the law and his ability to effectively and clearly communicate with the client.
