Legal Services

Offered By Our Law Office​


Family Law

We offer family services that will assist you in preparing separation agreements, marriage contracts, contested and uncontested divorces, adoptions and guardianships. At times divorce can be sudden and far too often we find that individuals have very little knowledge on how to proceed when faced with family legal issues.

Our family law office has all your family services under one roof. 

We offer “pay-as-you-go” and “flat fee” services.

Immigration Law

Hiring an immigration lawyer can be the difference between getting accepted or being rejected from coming into the country. Navigating through the immigration laws as someone who is not familiar with these laws can be daunting and complex. Our trusted immigration lawyers at Brookshire Law office will help you establish a new home and ensure your transition to the country is as smooth as possible.

I'm working with Brookshire on my divorce currently. They have done an excellent job trying to be concise in communication to keep costs lower and they work with my employer EAP. That said this is still an expensive process and we burned through my retainer before we even managed to submit an offer to settle but I'm glad I have competent representation.

I was proud to be represented by Brookshire Law Office where integrity and dedication is held in high regard. Not easily distracted from “noise”, professionalism is top level and always in play while still leaving room for compassion. A firm that recognizes the importance of communication and not only welcomes it, but is effective at it. I will be returning for any legal needs in the future with complete confidence and would recommend the firm without pause. A special thank you to both Shawn and Jeffrey.
