Fast, thorough, respectful legal help
Our not for profit organization engaged Ms. Shackelford to file 5013c paperwork with the IRS to obtain tax exempt status. We were on a very tight deadline and unable to fundraise until this designation was acquired. Not only did she meet our tight time constraints, she was thoughtful, respectful and incredibly thorough while working with us. Needless to say, we were awarded the status and have accomplished many projects because of our ability to raise funds. We are most grateful for her expertise and her work ethic.

Excellent colleague
I used to work with Stella, and she proved herself time and again to be a very capable and dedicated maritime/oil and gas attorney.
