Our Reviews

  • 5 star review  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 INCREDIBLY 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.

  • 5 star review  I spoke with Shawn. He phoned exactly on the time assigned. He listened to me and gave a response that put my mind at ease. I have spoken to three other law offices in the past 7 or 8 years regarding my issue. At the present time I do not need legal action and when I do in the future, I will definitely be in touch with him. For the first time since this problem, I feel comfortable for the time being, at least. Thank you Shawn.
