Paul B. Shaw, Jr.: Advocates for Your Family

Choosing to divorce can be one of the most life-changing legal decisions a person can made in his or her lifetime. Whether the choice was made amicably after a long-term marriage, unexpectedly and out of the blue, or contentiously after a serious family crisis, we recognize that clients from every walk of life will need qualified, skilled, and experienced legal counsel at every turn. Our Birmingham divorce lawyers are committed to helping you and your children maintain the highest quality of life, even when an unexpected event seems to turn life on its head.

In addition to the legal issues involved in a divorce, there can be many emotional and financial factors that become intertwined in the legal process as well. We believe in offering a team approach when representing our clients, making sure that we partner with them in the pursuit of a fair, timely, and economically efficient resolution. We strive to keep the trauma and expense of an embroiled legal battle at bay, so we negotiate fiercely on your behalf. If a resolution cannot be successfully or favorably reached, however, we will fight aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

During my 25 years in the practice of family law, I have seen it all.

The diversity of my clients and their particular circumstances has given me a broad exposure to the various circumstances and events that ultimately bring a person to a divorce lawyer. My clients are beneficiaries of those years of experience, and the expertise I have gained along the way. – Paul Shaw
