    Very expensive learning lesson here. Was charged for weekly meetings to discuss my case, between Jennifer, her paralegal, and their office assistance, but with nothing provided to me as to what was discussed and why a meeting was necessary. Since it is a small outfit, I was told that the paralegal would be able to handle the bulk of my questions and needs. Jennifer was out due to a surgery that was known to her, but not mentioned until after I paid the retainer. Paralegal was educated and helpful, but any work she created was redone by Jennifer, essentially charging me twice. Far too much costs for very little work. Have new lawyer now, and charges / retainer is much smaller and communications are much better. My advice, shop around, and realize that someone who charges $250~280 for a first time consultation has one objective in mind.

    Jennifer surpassed our expectations as out attorney. We hired her to work on a very complex case. She was passionate about our needs, and took our concerns seriously. I would highly recommend her to anyone and have given her name out many times. Jennifer was knowledgable about family law and DCFS cases and we did have and continue to have total confidence in her.

    Jennifer Shaw is a true advocate for her clients and their children. In my case, I could rely on her to provide accurate information, education about the law, and knew she truly cared about the well-being and safety of myself and my child as her highest priority.

    Jennifer Shaw and her legal team helped me understand the law, make decisions and reach my goal regarding the custody and support of my children. I'm so glad she was recommended to me by a friend and I am pleased to recommend her and her team of professionals.
    Available, helpful and always on top of my case - I couldn't have asked for anything more!

    Jennifer and her staff did a great job. I truly appreciated the personal attention that Jennifer gave when I met with her. She understood my problems and concerns and spoke to me on a personal level, which I truly appreciated. I know that I freaked out a lot over the course of my case, so I appreciated her calm and pretty quick responses. This was a difficult journey for me and my kids, and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Unfortunately, divorce is never an easy situation for anyone involved. I would recommend Jennifer and her staff over and over!

    Jennifer has worked diligently on my case while experience difficult matters of her own and has been very attentive. She is a selfless person that will go the extra mile to make sure things are done right. I have confidence she will get the job done and get it done right. She is a very informative individual full of experience and knowledge in her field. 2013 lawyer of the year and 2013 woman lawyer of the year proves she is top notch at what she does. I will not hesitate to refer her to anyone.

    Jennifer was my attorney for a partition suit, which didn't end the way I'd hoped, but I still highly recommend Jennifer. She's extremely personable, tries to help you in your situation to the best of her abilities, keeps you informed, and has a wonderful staff.

    Jennifer has represented me for the last 5 years dealing with my divorce and custody/support battles. She was aggressive in the courtroom when needed and always advocated for my families best interests. She made sure I was prepared for each step of the legal process and was completely upfront with me. She far exceeded my expectations!

    Jennifer an her entire staff were very helpful in getting me through my divorce. Although she is very busy, I always felt like she had enough time to answer my questions fully and completely. When you have her attention, you have 100% of it. Her staff is great. When Jennifer is not in the office, they can often answer the routine questions or can get a response from her in a timely manner. I had a great outcome and I would hire her again.

    Jennifer handled my divorce case in a straightforward and professional manner. She was up front about what was likely to happen and most of her predictions about the outcome were completely accurate. I could not be more pleased
