What Our Clients Say
“Best lawyer in New Jersey”
A few words won’t do justice to describe what an amazing lawyer Andrew M Shaw is. I hired Mr Shaw for my divorce case. I consulted several lawyers before Mr Shaw but wasn’t satisfied with any of them. After my first meeting with Mr Shaw, I immediately decided to hire him, without any second thought. I must start by mentioning that Mr Shaw is a very good listener, he pays attention to every single thing you say and quickly figures out what his client wants. He is very understanding and is very positive and reassuring. Also Mr Shaw is very knowledgeable and his strategies are amazing….
Mr. Shaw was not only professional, kind and considerate but he advised me in a way that was not only successful but cost effective. He did not provide the most expensive course of action, instead he provided the least expensive course of action that would get me the best result. Thankfully, because of Mr. Shaw’s expert advice [as my divorce lawyer] I was able to resolve my situation in a cost effective way in very little time. No one ever wants to need an attorney’s services but if I ever find myself fighting for my daughter well-being again I will definitely seek out Mr. Shaw’s help without hesitation. Thank you Mr. Shaw!
“A truly outstanding legal professional”
Mr. Andrew Shaw, the Managing Attorney at the firm, is an outstanding professional [divorce lawyer] that handles all matters with sound advice and promptness according to the legal case needs and developments. In my specific case, as I reside in a foreign country, I am sure it is more difficult, but Mr. Shaw made me feel as if we are in the same country and took care of everything until all legal matters are fully satisfied in all courts and involved agencies. I am a loyal reference for Shaw Divorce & Family Law LLC.
