She is the most HONEST attorney I have ever retained....period!
Going above and beyond what I would ever expect was such a surprise. She truly cared about me and my situation and did far better than my expectations. One of the few times I can say that my money was well spent.

Takes care of business!
I'm very pleased to have hired Shelley for my legal matters. In addition to the charges, a clerical error by the court added to the stress and urgency of my situation. Shelley promptly took care of the error and did an amazing job representing me. Shelley advised me throughout the process and always communicated updates etc... The situation resolved itself nicely and Shelley was able to get me the ideal outcome I had been hoping for. She is extremely knowledgeable of the San mateo court system and I would recommend her to anyone I know who is in need of a lawyer.
