Amazing, Professional Firm
Shelton Family Law provided the best family law services I could imagine. They were very diligent, informative, attentive, and comforting to every need and question I had. They were there for me, every step of the way, through my custody case. If you are looking for a very professional law firm that can provide upstanding service, look no further. I couldn’t be happier with William and his staff. All around great business, people and culture.

great attorney
Mr Shelton was better prepared than my spouse's attorney and he knew all the facts of my case. The judge clearly thought highly of him too.

Took 12 weeks to secure temporary orders. That should happen in less than 2 weeks. Did not appear familiar with his specialization. Constantly revising negotiated settlement, billing for more retainer.
