Charlie helped me navigate the divorce process. He was sensitive to my needs and was able to adjust to the changing dynamics with my ex.

I am a CLC Member and contacted Charles Shane for consultation on a semi-complicated, small claims issue. The issue: months ago my husband, while in the country for a short time, made a verbal agreement with a local gym to only pay a month at a time for membership using his credit card. When he left the country, the gym continued to charge his credit card each month, which he unfortunately didn't notice until months later when he was back in the country and they had sent him a "failure to process payment" email. The gym's third party payment service would not refund my husband the roughly $1,200 amount, saying that it wasn't their fault he didn't notice the unauthorized payments. Charles gave me some great advice by suggesting I first, go straight to the credit card company and report the payments as unauthorized transactions and see if the credit card company would "fix" the situation. Then, if that doesn't work, go to court and sue the gym owner. Since my husband didn't sign anything, not even a liability waiver for the gym, we wouldn't have a problem succeeding in court. Charles spoke very "matter-of-factly", was very easy to talk with and answered all my questions. I left the conversation feeling confident that I could take care of the issue myself, and that if I did end up needing an attorney, he would be there to help me.

Charlie was an amazing advocate for me throughout the process of my obtaining an emergency restraining order, temporary parenting plan, and ultimately a permanent parenting plan. We had many different moving parts in our case with police involvement, CPS, children's counselors, drug treatment and evaluations, along with a very difficult and uncooperative other party. Charlie was professional and helpful throughout the stressful ordeal and went above and beyond for us to handle things as efficiently as possible. He made the very stressful situation much more manageable. In fact, he made everything very easy, which I will forever be grateful for. I have gone through the process of creating a parenting plan before and worked with two other attorneys previously, Charlie definitely takes the trophy for best attorney to work with, with the best work product and attention to detail.

I was in a position where my ex denied me all contact with my daughter for over a year, and after retaining Charlie as counsel, I almost immediately was able to renew contact with my daughter. The court case was difficult, but at the end my ex wife and I were able to come up with a parenting plan we could both live with, thanks in no small part to the efforts and advice of Charlie Shane.

Several years ago I married someone I considered the perfect match. That turned out not to be the case. After a long period locked inside a twilight zone episode, I decided on divorce. After some searching, I came across Charlie. I always like to talk to people face to face and before a decision. I don’t like choosing someone over the phone. Charlie agreed to a meeting. We discussed my situation and decided to move forward.
In this process, there were episodes of faux reconciliation. I made decisions based on sunny optimism and not earnest reality. However, Charlie would listen and work with me, and, when necessary, convince me to lay the groundwork for the next phase. Charlie was quite prescient as to what we needed to do now and how to plan for the future. His planning and decisions were extremely helpful when the time came.
He worked the problem. The cost was reasonable to me and I could have lowered my expenses if I had listened to his advice and not my own wishes. But, all in all, this ended better than I feared going in and I’m happy with the results.

I have been dealing with a contentious custody matter for a number of years. In that time, I have worked with different attorneys who have been too busy, unprepared, and unresponsive to my needs and requests.
Mr. Shane was just the opposite. He was attentive, understood the case inside and out, was focused on the best interest of my daughter and I, and was always prepared with a well thought-out course of action.
In the past, it has been next to impossible to talk with attorneys who filter emails through paralegals and secretaries, and are never available by phone. But Mr. Shane was easily accessible and quick to respond. This is a rare and desirable trait to have in a lawyer. He was by far the best family law attorney I have utilized. My case was quickly finalized with my desired outcome. If I ever need legal service again, he would be the first person I would contact.

Charlie was very knowledgeable and professional. He went above and beyond to help us with our court proceedings and provided excellent support throughout the whole process. Having him on our side made everything easy and so much less stressful. We will definitely be contacting him again in the future if we should ever need legal services again. Thanks Charlie!

I hired Charlie Shane after consulting with him about my case over the phone. He was very straightforward and clear on what actions need to be made in order for it to be successful. After knowing how complicated it would be to achieve it successfully on my own, I felt that there was no other way but to hire him to take this on for me. He is very knowledgeable and has a very skilled way of approaching each step of the way to be done in a case. And because of this he has successfully achieved all our goals throughout my case. I couldn't be any happier and trusted another lawyer other than Charlie. I would beyond no doubt highly recommend his serves to everyone I know that needs a sharp and dedicated family lawyer. I hope I don't have to go through this kind of ordeal again but if I do, I would absolutely choose him again. He has been there every step of the way and is always reachable. His quality of work and time spent on your case will be a pleasure to work with him. His is very organized, always well prepared to take on every possible outcome, and creates a clear plan to achieve goals. Thank you Charlie, I couldn't have done it without you. I am truly grateful to have found a lawyer like you!

Charlie was extremely friendly and helpful in explaining the process as my divorce progressed. He was extremely professional, respectful, understanding of my situation. Myself having no experience with anything legal, he kept things easy to understand and moving smoothly. He and his staff were always available when I needed them and helped me reach a fair and desired settlement for my divorce. I highly recommend Charlie for your legal needs and would definitely come back to Charlie for anything that comes up in the future! Thank you Charlie!
