I recommend any one who is needing representation from a great lawyer. Anne Shevlin helped me with my case . I was dealing with cps and being a custodial parent of my 3 grand kids. I greatly appreciate all her hard work. She always answered any questions or concerns I had . Thank you Anne Shevlin for representing my case and helping me through this stressful & difficult time.

Knowledgable & Empathetic
I would recommend Anne to anyone looking for a divorce lawyer. She was very knowledgeable and empathetic. She was prompt in returning phone calls and emails. Anne made this difficult family transition to a single mother as painless as possible.

Awesome Attorney
Ms. Shevlin was great with handling my Adoption of Adult and Statutory Dual Power of Attorney. Before retaining Ms. Shevlin's services, she came to meet my soon-to-be adopted daughter and me at our home in the afternoon. At a time that was convenient for us. She was warm, caring, and understanding. She listened very carefully to why there was a need to petition for the Adoption of an Adult and to have a Statutory Dual Power of Attorney. My adoptee is a beautiful special needs lady I met in High School. We became remarkably close during our high school years, and she came to live with me in 2008. Ms. Shevlin agreed to accept our case before leaving our home. Shortly after our meet and greet, Ms. Shevlin sent over all the needed paperwork to be filled out by the MD and the Petition for Adoption. We felt instantly relieved that we had legal representation. Ms. Shevlin kept us very well informed of the entire process throughout the court's proceeding. Any concerns or questions that we had, she always followed up with answers and addressed those concerns expeditiously. Ms. Shevlin explained in detail what to expect in the court; proceedings she even prompted us that morning of the hearing. We were at a hearing to finalize the adoption within two weeks of Ms. Shevlin filing our petition, and the Statutory Dual Power of Attorney was complete. My daughter and I had a pleasant experience with Ms. Shevlin, and we would recommend her services to anyone that needs an attorney regarding Family Law.

Guardianship Expert!
Anne was extremely helpful in educating our family and guiding us through the lengthy process of guardianship. Her communication was always timely and she explained things with such pragmatism that we didn't need a law degree ourselves to understand. She is warm, personable and caring. We found Anne on Avvo after going through several different attorneys that advertised guardianship experience, but none impressed like Anne did. So glad we were able to find her and so happy to be able to review her for folks that may find themselves in a situation like we did. If you need a guardianship expert, call Anne.

My lawyer, Anne. Is an incredible extremely thoughtful cover all bases professional. She is a blessing from God. I felt as if everything that I needed to ask from her, she had already thought about and has an extremely empathic loving spirit that is truly for the sake of her clients and the children. I was so amazed with her and all her hard and dedication in her profession. This world needs all lawyers to think like she has. Amazed. She is a special gift for our community.

"I have worked closely with Ms. Shevlin for a few years and have found her work ethic to be reliable and for her to be very knowledgeable and well prepared for all cases she has been on. Even though we have sometimes found ourselves on the opposite sides of a case, she always treats others with dignity and respect."
