About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

Our primary focus is family law: dissolutions of marriages and domestic partnerships, child custody, division of community property, and other issues related to dissolutions. Additionally, we handle matters in criminal court such as DUI, domestic violence, bankruptcy, and others on a case-by-case basis.

Although I graduated from law school in 1999, I didn't become involved in the legal field until 2003 when I began working in civil litigation in both state and federal court. In mid-2006, I began working in family law on dissolution matters, primarily as a volunteer at Pro Bono Project in San Jose, then individually.

Example cases
Generally, my cases involve parents seeking to either establish or modify a custody arrangement. Such cases can be highly emotional, volatile, and the outcomes can be unpredictable. As such, the best approach is to be realistic on goal setting, be patient, and be well-organized.

I offer a free, 30 minute consultation (by appointment) 

Services Offered For Fixed Fees?
I utilize the typical retainer method, where you essentially pre-pay for a certain amount of my time. As work is performed and fees earned, I create an invoice and transfer the fees from the retainer deposit into my working account. Anything remaining in the retainer account is returned to the client at the completion of services unless other arrangements are made. Occasionally I will do certain work for a fixed flat fee, established at the start of the representation, upon agreement with the client.

Law Office of Mark N. Shebby
Mr. Shebby began handling my case about seven years ago. In that time he has provided invaluable advice and guidance from a disputed divorce settlement transitioning to custody issues. In the beginning, Mr. Shebby was very honest with me about his experience and had been very fair with his billing. Being pregnant and unable to work (a biological hazardous lab technician) to a sleep deprived could not find employment single mother, I struggled to pay all of my legal bills; Mr. Shebby did not stop representing me nor sending it for collection. Instead, he set up an installment plan with me. His legal secretary is very punctual. She took care of the paperwork and kept up with all the submission deadlines to court. There was not an instance where we missed a court appearance or response to a filing. It was an incredibly stressful and trying time for me, Mr. Shebby was and continues to be exceedingly supportive and successful. Mr. Shebby won an argue for an ex parte move away order in my case, getting permission from the court to move out of state with a minor child in a custody dispute is very, very rare. I am greatly indebt to Mr. Shebby. He had allowing me to have a new start in life with my child again.
