We aggresively represent the interests of our clients both in and out of court.

I am a founding parter at Shorb & Connor and make it a point to get to know every client that walks through our firms doors. We are a small firm and offer small firm personal service but have the technology and team attorney approach of the larger firms. Our goal is to help our clients, and what better way than to provide them with our entire firm's knowledge, not just their single attorney.

I practice Family Law exclusively and have for many years., However, I have litigated countless cases and obtained sizable awards for my clients in cases ranging from Medical Malpractice, negligent loan servicing, and financial elder abuse to administrative appeals before the Office of Administrative Hearings. 

As an experienced family law attorney with extensive trial experience, I use that same tenacity I developed as a civil litigator and public defender to better the lives of my clients. Whether seeking divorce, dividing marital assets, or battling a messy child custody matter, I am always a tireless advocate for my clients and believe that getting to know every client and personally investing myself in their cases is what has led to my success.

I have a high conflict divorce. I filed 2017, had a lawyer that was not able to get me the judgement. Fired that lawyer and hired Atty. Shorb after I interviewed at least 5. Got judgement on 2021, with division of assets still on the works/pending because ex was not cooperating. Assets finally got divided 2024 with Atty. Shorb discovering community funds that the Ex was trying to keep for himself. YOU'LL NEVER GO WRONG IF YOU CHOOSE HIS REPRESENTATION. I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL.

Above and beyond
Shorb and Connor were recommended to me by a friend while I was in a painful and difficult divorce that had been going on for two years with another law firm. Mr. Shorb had an immediate plan of what needed to be done after our initial meeting and he implemented the plan immediately. Motions, subpoenas, communication with the opposing counsel all happened at lightning speed. The attorneys in this firm work together on your case; one in the office and one in court -- it was all done with such precision, professionalism and excellent communication --I was updated often as things moved along. Divorces are painful and overwhelming. Andrew and Kristin made it much more less stressful for me and I felt really safe with them advocating for me. All issues, including the fight over support (which I NEVER thought we would be able to settle outside of a trial) were wrapped up and agreed to within a month of retaining this firm. If you want ethical, professional attorneys on your side that win with their knowledge and sophistication rather than those other attorneys that are aggressive with "tricks up their sleeve" You will not go wrong with Shorb and Conner. They quickly settled my nightmare of a divorce and were so kind to me. I highly recommend them... I am actually going to miss them.
