I have known Shelly for approximately ten (10) years now. She is a highly respected personal injury attorney and deservedly so. I have practiced personal injury law exclusively for the past 31 years, and have practiced a total of 32 years. I would not hesitate to recommend Shelly, or to refer prospective clients to her if a conflict or other issue prevented me from representing. Thorough, dedicated, extremely bright, aggressive when necessary, and a litigator. All of these fit Shelly. Dave Bufalini
