I hired her to help me with a lawsuit and it was a huge mistake! I basically had to force her to do her job after she took a large amount of money from me. It would take multiple emails before she would even respond and then I would find out that she had not even done what she had said she would prior. Then she would charge me for each email! After months of this, i tried to tell her I did not want to continue her service any longer. And she told me that I couldn't. The case was finally dismissed a couple of months ago and I have yet to receive the unused balance of my retainer. I have sent multiple emails requesting payment and have not received a response or my money! She made an already stressful situation even more stressful than it had to be. So now I've contacted the state bar and they are advising me on how to handle the situation.

Andrea is just wonderful. She fought so hard for me and made a miracle happen in court when everyone doubted what we did could be done. She is a great attorney. Honest, good people sometimes go down for things they didn't do or lies get told about them a judge may believe. She made sure this didn't happen to me like it started to before I hired her. I'd say she saved my daughter's life. I have unending gratitude towards her.

Andrea represented me in a very contentious divorce action; and, was very successful in preventing scheming and unscrupulous manuvers from the opposing side. Not only am I more than happy with the way the case is progressing, but I admire and trust Andrea as an attorney and as a friend.

I hired Ms. Scheinbein for a custody case. The mother and her lawyer were trying to play all sorts of legal games to try and avoid the issue at hand. With her experience (AND SHE KNOWS THE LAW WELL!), she was able to maneuver and stop the wasting of money.
Ms. Scheinbein got right to the point, always returned phone calls promptly, and even gave me her personal cell phone (most lawyers donâ€™t do that.) Most of all, she is a fighter and a bulldog! She took my case very seriously and worked very hard on my case. She gave me excellent advice and, I must recommend this, listen to her advice.
I have dealt with many lawyers in the past, most of which seem to burn through money and not do much. She billed honestly, accurately and was very reasonable. She is an honest lawyer. When she showed up for trial, this lady was well prepared. I highly recommend her, she did an excellent job for me, did a great job preparing me for trial, was well organized and I got the outcome I had hoped for. Her legal assistant, Jo Ann, is great too. I shopped around for a long time to find a good lawyer like her! I got lucky finding her. Thanks for all the great work!

Andrea is a wonderful person and an awesome attorney. I was facing an ugly divorce and custody battle. I was told by friends, family and even attorneys I interviewed prior to Andrea, that just because I was a man, it would be impossible for me to gain custody of my 2 daughters (one being an infant). Andrea quickly debunked the general assumption, and advised that the court will see to what is in the best interest of the children. Boy was she right. My daughters are now both with me, where they belong, and fulltime. She was a pleasure to work with and because of her vast knowledge and experience in family law, I felt very comfortable with her in my corner. Andrea did a wonderful job and I would not choose anyone else if any future family or civil matter arose. Simply put, STOP YOUR SEARCH HERE! You have found someone that will fully represent the best interests of you and your family.

The bottom line in any dealings with lawyers is were they a value. Ms Sheinbein has saved or returned over $100,000.oo to me. This is in three cases alone. I also have used her in contract writing, contract review, buisness opinion and in all buisness matters. The choice here is simple. Hire Ms. Sheinbein and win... or wish you would have. Avvo will only allow so much room. Ms Sheinbein is the most Flexible Lawyer I have ever met. Child Custody ..Contracts...ect I consider her to be the winning differance in every aspect I have ever used her services
