Divorce with ease
Shawn was extreamly helpful throughout my devorce. I was terrified that it was going to be a nightmare, but he made my whole experiance stress free. He's an amazing lawyer, and a great person.

Had my interests in mind from the start
When I started my divorce I was very lost. After explaining my situation to Mr. Reinke I felt much more secure and comfortable in what was going on. He was understanding and non-judgemental through the whole process. He also had my interests and concerns in mind the whole time. He made sure that I knew exactly what was going on every step and that I never had outlandish expectations. He was honest and straight forward. I was as pleased with the outcome as a person can be in a divorce. I also know if I need assistance down the road with custody or child support I can count on him.

Lots of billing...little movement
Shawn spent most of his time during my divorce sending endless proposals back and forth to the ex's attorney that he knew weren't going to be accepted. If he would have been more proactive, he would have just taken the greedy %+&$* to court and we would have easily had a better outcome. Months into my divorce, I get an email saying he's leaving the firm I hired him at to start his own practice. It all made sense's tough to believe he was really working as hard on my case as he could; fighting for a favorable outcome for me when he's busy, secretly spending his time starting a business... Would not recommend...

Response from Shawn Reinke December 3, 2017
I sincerely apologize that my representation of you left you with such dissatisfaction and resentment. I recall the circumstances of your case quite differently, but I will not dispute those circumstances in this forum. If you would like, I would be happy to take you to lunch or coffee so we can discuss your case along with my departure from my previous firm in order to come to a mutual understanding of the facts at hand and put this issue to rest.
