Choose Shane!
I had the pleasure of working with Shane Boasberg for 19 months on a Family Law case centered on my divorce agreement to sell my jointly-owned house. We won!! Shane's experience, professionalism, and work quality were 100% on display when we arrived at court against the opposing counsel. He had a huge Trial Binder for the Judge to use and follow along during the trial, and over (10) exhibits to log in - more than doubling the opposing counsel's exhibits, and providing the ONLY binder to the Judge! Shane and I worked together to get evidence collected and sorted. We conversed long-distance since I live outside of Austin, but the house is near Austin. Emails, phone calls, and text messages were more than enough! Shane comes prepared to win, and is armed with knowledge, wisdom, compassion, and a fire in his belly! His help is worth every penny, and his rate is extremely reasonable.

Shane Wins
Shane came recommended by a friend, and was absolutely amazing to work with. I needed legal help with an eviction for a nightmare tenant, and Shane went above and beyond preparing an air-tight case. Although evictions are not the type of law he normally deals with, he learned everything about it quickly and got my tenant out in a timely fashion. He was in constant communication with me throughout the entire process, making sure we were overly prepared so everything would go in our favor. The judge also loved his wit and personal ability. After the eviction was ruled, Shane continued his involvement by following up with the tenant with a very stern, but professional email advising him of the ramifications if he didn’t comply with the judgement and move out. Done. Tenant gone. I was extremely happy with Shane – he was thorough, competent, and a pleasure to work with. I’d definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone needing legal help.

The One
I went through 3 attorneys which where unsuccessful & stressful..Until I met & hired " Mr. Shane Boasberg!" The other party had a private good attorney which leaves me to believe why perhaps the previous 3 failed. Shane Boasberg accepted my case late in the process & took on the wrath of the other attorney & turn everything around to my favor! Shane would call me back all the time when I needed.. even on holidays ( not many attorneys do that). Shane has a unique approach of how the family law works & how to WIN. Shane somehow knows how judges lean & utilizes it in his experience magical strategic approach in trial. He takes control & makes things happen even when the odds are against you.. its like he knows what the judge is thinking during the trial & applies it with his strategy. Many attorneys only care about retainers with no result.. but Shane Boasberg priority is to: 1) the welfare of the true victim "children" , 2) protecting your rights as a parent & 3) RESULTS IN YOUR FAVOR. if you read this far... Hire this man right-away & release the anxiety hell you present inherit. Quote from the Matrix... "THE ONE"... Thank you Shane!

Thank you Shane!!!
I hired Mr. Boasberg to represent me in two cases aned he has worked hard and always answers my questions. I never spoke to his assistant about my case I spoke with him directly which was refreshing and he always made sure I knew what was going on with my case. I didn't have to hunt him down to get answers, I would recommend him to anyone.

I was very pleased
Shane did a great job for me on my civil litigation case. He was affordable, accessible, and a straight-shooter, which took me off guard since I wasn't expecting a lawyer to be so honest. He's a great lawyer who I would definitely recommend.

Knowledgeable
Shane contacted me almost immediately after I entered my information and questions online. He was extremely helpful and compassionate with my situation. I was not looking for a settlement, but for answers. He listened well and provided as many answers as possible in this situation. He took the information he had and was able to get two settlements with different insurances. I had no involvement whatsoever, except for a signature here or there. He knows his job well. He's compassionate and very understanding. Keeps you informed, and will spare you of any unnecessary details. I would definitely recommend.
