Why Clients Love Us

Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Thanks again for all you did for me. I am glad I found a lawyer who gets it. --- Darci B.

He Pushed when I Needed it

Mr. Shaw saw me at my worst, going through the worst time in my life, my divorce, yet he kept me focused on the real goals (not my overly emotional, unrealistic expectations) and pushed me to do the work it took to help him win my case.   He kept telling me it was my leg work that won, but really, it was his pushing me and keeping me strong even when I wanted to cave, that got the win. In hindsight, it was the most horrible time in my life, and I thank God I had Mr. Shaw there to get me through it.   He was blunt, to the point, called me out when I was wimping out, and was my champion. I highly recommend him.

Wife Took Son & Tried to Set Visitation

My wife took my one year old son and moved out, telling me I could only see him on weekends. Mr. Shaw went to bat for me and won full custody for me at not just one, but two trials, in front of two different judges. It is now my ex-wife who only gets to see my son on weekends! --- Raymond D. 

Killer Cross-Examination

Your cross examination and your closing arguments were brilliant. You knew the material and you made every point that you needed to make to get the results we got. THANK YOU! --- Sheri F. 

Won Custody of My Kids

Mr. Shaw won custody for me of my little boy and teenage daughter, despite my now ex-wife influencing my daughter to testify at trial and to elect to reside with her, and Mr. Shaw cut through this chafe at trial, through the B.S. and distortions, destroyed my ex’s case, and I have custody of my two kids as a very happy father. --- Mark S.

Case Results

  • Wife Supports Husband's Career

    Our client, Wife, has one child with Husband, a sales executive for a NASDAQ tech company, who earns close to $1 million/year. Husband commits adultery and is caught; divorce ensues. Shaw Law Firm PC utilized a vocational expert and an economic expert to determine lost income and earning capacity of Wife, which she sacrificed to support her husband’s career.
    Case Result: After three days of a jury trial, Husband made settlement offer awarding Wife 75% of the marital assets and six figures per year in alimony for five years, plus child support.
    Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia

  • Complex Financial Holdings Unfairly Valued

    Our client, Husband, is a high-level executive at an international corporation who receives multiple forms of compensation, from multiple countries, creating a complex matter for divorce proceedings. Shaw Law Firm PC was retained as the second attorney, after the first failed to reach settlement. Husband committed adultery during a long-term marriage in which Wife had deferred her career to Husband’s career in order to raise their now college-age child. Wife was demanding $5 million in stock options and other assets, along with close to $1 million in alimony. Wife’s attorney and a financial expert were greatly inflating the value of stock options and other assets. The key in this case was to be very precise and simplify the complexity of all these assets.
    Case Result: Wife was awarded just 1/10th of what she had demanded in stock options and only three years of alimony.
    Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia

  • Family Business Valuation Key to Case

    Wife retained Shaw Law Firm PC after a failed attempt by another attorney. Wife had inherited a family business from her parents. Husband had worked as the President of the business for 20 years and was demanding an enormous settlement for his interest in the business. We brought in the a top business valuation specialist and witnesses who could show the husband’s poor management of the business and drug use contributed to the lack of value in the business.
    Case Result: Husband was awarded only $25,000 for his 20 years of service to the business. We calculated the after-inflation appreciation of the business, arguing that the remainder of the business value was premarital property. Wife saved her family business and continues to thrive. She also was awarded full custody of her children.
    Gwinnett County, Lawrenceville, Georgia
