You have made a difficult situation somewhat simple. I never held lawyers in high regard, but you have brought me around. You truly are great at what you do and we appreciate all the hard work.

The initial phone interview was very thorough. I had a number of questions regarding our circumstances and Mr. Shields took a great deal of time to give me relevant information. He walked us through the process with warmth and consideration.
In addition to being knowledgeable he always kept me informed! If I had a question or just wanted to check on the progress of my probate matter, I always received a prompt response. I could not believe the amount of paperwork that is involved! Could not have gotten through this without them. If you ever want a professional, reliable, trustworthy, and honest lawyer, make sure to give Mr. Shields a call!!!!

I have read many of Mr. Shields' responses to posts on Avvo. His answers are accurate, concise and free of excessive legalese. His client reviews show his clients think highly of him. I endorse this lawyer.
