This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Shelley’s comment: “In 2009, my firm had financial difficulties and I chose to make late payment to the state and federal government for payroll taxes instead of laying off employees or reducing benefits. This resulted in the bar disciplining me in 2012.”

I hired Shelly to help my niece with a messy divorce - restraining orders, lies, arrest warrants - the works. She has been fantastic. Very knowledgeable and supportive. I'm so glad we found her.

I have retained Shelley Fuller for several different types of cases. I would not go anywhere else. She is thorough, persistent and professional. I have the utmost confidence in Shelley and her paralegal Tara.

Shelley heard about my situation--a debt that had gone bad after I was hit hard in the recession--and immediately jumped in to help me reach an agreement with the creditor. She knew what needed to be done and wasted little time in doing it. Her knowledge and negotiation skills kept things moving quickly, and the problem was resolved much more easily than it would have been had I tried to advocate for myself. Throughout it all, Shelley was warm, respectful, and understanding.

I have had several cases against Shelley over the years. She is a tough advocate for her client, but also has common sense and is willing to work through problems to reach a solution that both sides can agree on. Shelley was disciplined by the bar because she failed to pay her payroll taxes on time for several months when she was having financial difficulties. Although our self-regulating bar holds attorneys to a high standard, (which is good) sometimes, we attorneys have tough times and make mistakes too. I believe that Shelley has learned from this and I have no hesitation in saying that she is a smart and capable family law attorney.
