  • John William Kydd

    Joe has the mind of a lawyer and the heart of a psychologist and this helps him understand issues that many trained only in the law will miss. His understanding of the humanity of conflict helps him to assist his clients in a deep and abiding manner. He is becoming a major voice in the bar for conscience in our practice and he is pioneering a number of innovations that will make the law a more effective tool for helping families in conflict.

  • Debra Kay Synovec

    I know Joseph Shaub to be an outstanding and compassionate collaborative law attorney. He is not only dedicated to compassionate and skillful client advocacy but he has also demonstrated his commitment to the field of collaborative divorce itself. Joe graciously shares his knowledge and expertise with colleagues at conferences and trainings, helping others to be better able to support their own clients. Not only does Joe have skill, empathy and integrity, he also has a keen sense of humor. I highly recommend Joe!
