Martin Shellist is an absolutely brilliant lawyer in many levels. I had been involved in lengthy and drawn out lawsuit that looked like it would never end and was financially debilitating and caused enormous levels of stress. After over two years, we brought Marty in and within a matter of weeks the suit was wrapped up. He looks at things from every angle. He does not allow manipulation and will call out whomever needs to be called out. He knows the law and how it works. He addresses issues through various angles, so that strategies are in place and issues are handled and not dragged out. I trust his guidance, knowledge, insight and intuition completely. I highly, highly recommend him.

I hired Martin to settle a rather complicated divorce from my previous company. Like any divorce, there were issues that needed to be negotiated. Martin was on top of it all. He was super sharp and most importantly took the time to understand all the issues, the players and the priorities. He set the gameplan and executed it so well.
Martin is a great lawyer but he's also trustworthy, responsive and really kind. I've met a lot of lawyers and it's not easy to find this combination. When it comes to employment law, he is simply the best.
