Shelly started practicing law because she wanted to help people through a difficult period in their lives. From the moment she takes on a new case, she makes sure you are being proactive, rather than being reactive. Shelly is open and honest and believes that working together and openly communicating is really important. Since she is detail-oriented, Shelly immediately starts focusing on the facts surrounding the case, researching case precedents and jointly strategizing on potential approaches.
Shelly’s goal is to make sure you arrive at an outcome where the benefits outweigh the costs. At every step of the way, she re-evaluates your strategy to make sure we are always keeping the end goal in mind, and that we aren’t wasting time, energy and money. She always considers all of our options, from arriving at an out-of-court settlement using a mediator, to arguing a case in court when necessary.
Shelly enjoys working with people from diverse backgrounds and takes pride in helping her clients succeed with fair resolutions and a path to a brighter and happier future. Shelly would love to have an initial meeting to hear your story, get to know you, and start working on the next chapter in your life.
