I was represented by Shawntell Mckillop in a custody case against my physically and verbally abusive ex who is my son's father. She helped me a little during the hearing for the temp orders. After the temp orders hearing ended, she informed me that she had represented my son's aunt in her custody hearing which would be a conflict of interest. Between the temporary and final hearings, I attempted to contact her several times regarding my son's dad's family breaking the orders and she would never return my calls. During the final orders hearing, Shawntell didn't do anything she said she'd do and after the hearing was over, I found out that clauses were put into the final orders that I was not made aware of until after the orders were finalized. It seemed a lot like she was working for the other side after the temp orders hearing. I have since been afraid of hiring a lawyer because I fear going through another experience like I went through with Shawntell.

Mess-up, after mess-up! Horrible record keeping. They will lose half the supporting documentation they request including sensitive information (copies of SSN). She is so overbooked she is unable to keep simple facts about your case straight! It is impossible to get in contact with her & when you leave a message no one will ever contact you back. I have waited for a call back for over a month(checking in once a week) & and never received a call. And to top it off she neglected to write my final decree with the agreed upon terms!!! Absolute incompetence!!!!!

I paid for this attorney and she was late to court. Was not prepared and had nothing planned for a strong defense. She was still my attorney a year later and I was unaware. She is my current attorney and she has not responded to my calls since before Thanksgiving 2014, even with her secretaries assurance.
Her secretaries act as if they are irritated if called to often and have nasty dispositions.

She was amazing!
I went into the process of getting visitation with my step son thinking I had no chance. Shawntell was a pit bull. She not only fought for us but she was very confident during the whole processes. Her confidence gave me the will to fight when all seemed lost. If you have a case she won’t BS you. You will get the facts up front before she will take the case. If you have an uphill battle, I would recommend hiring her.

Ms McKillop has been completely AMAZING!.... During my fiances criminal case we stayed in contact and spoke regularly regarding the progression of his situation, and although she was assign to us as a public defender she has proven to be THE BEST in San Angelo TX... CALL HER! she's absolutely Fabulous! Thank U Shawntell.
