Landlord/Tenant Information
Colleen provided me with insightful advice over the phone in regard to a Landlord/Tenant question. I found her perceptive, and her suggestions clearly stated. Thank you.

Responsive and Effective
I am an out of state lawyer who retained Colleen to assist on a case for one of my clients. She got the issues quickly and turned out excellent work.

Excellent, Fair and fast
I found Colleen thru Avvo and I was really impressed. She actually cared to hear about my case and gave me realistic expectations. She was fair and wasn't out to gauge me either. Overall, I had a really positive experience and she took a huge weight off my shoulders.

Everything I wanted in an advocate
I needed to evict a tenant that decided she'd like to live for free and take me for a ride. I didn't live in the area and this situation put me in a tough spot. I hoped I'd find a good lawyer. I didn't know Colleen, but we met and her experience quickly cut through the noise and she immediately got the process started. She was responsive to me in every manner - by phone, email, text. She gathered the facts, discussed options, and handled the case from beginning to end to my satisfaction. Through my experience, I've found Colleen to be honest, smart, responsive, and effective. I highly recommend her.

Colleen Shaw stood up for our rights against a slum lord
We were very pleased with Colleen Shaw's assistance. She was knowledgeable, professional, assertive, and effective. She went above and beyond the call of duty. She even visited our home, on her way home from work, to further assist us! She is an awesome attorney, the most involved attorney we've ever had represent either of us. She's devoted to working diligently on behalf of her clients. It's because of Colleen Shaw that we won our case. Thanks Colleen.
