Maria is the epitome of compassion and professionalism. She helped us through the adoption process with ease. She knew everything we needed to do and advised us on what to expect. Her counsel was spot on and we recommend her highly.

Maria reviewed previous will and trust documents and fully addressed our concerns with documents prepared by another attorney. We decided to prepare new documents. Maria' guidance and patience was greatly appreciated. She addressed areas that the previous attorney never addressed. Very satisfied with both she and Connie in ease of working together. Thanks for making this a good and understandable experience.

Maria came to my mothers house and helped to complete the end of life documents for her. She explained everything to my mom and made sure she understood what she was signing. She did all the necessary paperwork for title transfer of house, avoiding probate, right to die paperwork and power of attorney. She also notarized the paperwork and filed the documents. This helped to give my mother the peace of mind that her estate was being handled properly and that her wishes were being carried out.
I later used Maria to prepare all my estate planning and wills.

We highly recommend Maria Shinn. She is extremely knowledgable when it comes to estate planning for same sex partners. Everyone in the office went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The estate planning process was quick, extremely accurate and fairly priced.

Finding Maria Shinn was such a blessing for my wife and I. We had so many questions surrounding our up coming marriage and estate planning. We didn't even realize how much we didn't know. Maria walked through all of our concerns and raised points that we had not thought of. So grateful for her patience in taking the time to answer and explain our questions and concerns. She spoke in a language that we could understand. Getting an appointment was simple and we were able to be seen right away every time. We will hire her for any future legal needs that may arise.

Maria is friendly, supportive, and professional. She makes you feel like family. My divorce was the most difficult life event I've experienced so far, and she and her staff made it a million times easier. The will was detailed and thorough, she made sure I understood every portion of the will. I would not hesitate to recommend Shinn and Lanter to all my family and friends.

Ms. Shinn was very warm, kind and calming in my interaction with her when preparing my prenuptial. She insisted that I ask questions and seek clarification every step of the way. She was patient with my novice understanding of this part of the law.

Maria was so kind and caring and she is not even a therapist. She was generous with her time, available, and compassionate in my separation with my partner. She gave sound and timely advice.

Maria Shinn is a rare find. We were so impressed and put at ease by her extensive knowledge, competence, trustworthiness, and warm, personal, down to earth style. She came highly recommended and we can see why. We will definitely work with her again in the future.

Marie Louise Shinn helped me by writing my will as I was looking at spinal surgery in the very near future. She not only took all my info but also asked questions on matters I had forgotten to include. I was kept abreast of the process as she completed each section so I could check accuracy of info. The whole process was completed in a reasonable amount of time. At the completion of the will, Maria sat down with me and went through each area in detail to be sure I was satisfied. I would highly recommend Maria Shinn for any legal advice.
