  • I was impressed by the efficiency of his arguments and how effective he is in court.

    I hired Mr. Shaw when it became clear my divorce would go to trial and he was with me every step of the way and continues to represent me in on-going matters. He is always prepared. I was impressed by the efficiency of his arguments and how effective he is in court. I learned quickly to just get out of the way and let him do his thing.

  • Paul is the best divorce attorney in Birmingham.

    I have been a client of Shaw Family Law since 2006. Paul and his paralegal, Connie, were an invaluable resource during my initial divorce proceedings. They were always available to answer my questions and provide top-notch legal guidance. I was very pleased with the outcome of the initial settlement. In the years since, it has been necessary to seek legal counsel in order to modify my divorce decree on several occasions. It has been extremely reassuring to know that I have an attorney that I can trust and depend on as unforeseen circumstances arise. I know Paul has the best interest of my children in mind as he assists me in navigating the financial repercussions of a divorce. Paul is committed to achieving the best results for his clients and he has the knowledge, ability, insight, and experience to obtain the optimal outcome. He recognizes the emotional component of a divorce and he will fight for what is right. He is dedicated, focused, and determined. I'm grateful that I have had his support and guidance throughout the last 10 years.

  • The Best Attorney You Will Find, I assure you....

    If you are reading this review, you have found the best attorney you could hope for in your divorce. I never would have understood how challenging a divorce proceeding could be - having not been through one before. However, my first attorney (well known and highly paid) was not going to bring my children and myself through this process with a good outcome. And when you think about that, and I did, the outcome truly sets the stage for each of the lives involved for years and years to come. So saying that it is important is truly an understatement. I began to comprehend the magnitude of poor representation when it was happening and I knew it. I won’t bore you with the details of how I came to know of Paul and Connie, because you are already here and have found them. I spent an entire day with Paul and he with me. Both assessing each other. I knew the longer the day went on three things: 1.) He believed in me 2) He knew I was in trouble with the handling of my case and 3) He could and would do what needed to happen to get the best outcome….for all. Paul Shaw did just that. It wasn’t easy. But a few of the amazing things Paul brings to the table look like this: 1.) Paul is brilliant and brings that brilliance to fully engage in the case. He misses nothing. 2.) His handling of the case and matters throughout is quietly masterful, as you will see. 3.) Paul and Connie allow their clients great access and provide their clients with the direction we need to get through the case and not get in the way of our own outcomes. In my mind, Paul Shaw worked miracles in the lives of my family. Miracles that needed to happen, that were fair and just and ultimately kind to all. But no one other than Paul Shaw would have been able to bring this outcome to be. I hope you will find great comfort in your divorce, where comfort is hard to come by, in the hands of Paul Shaw and his firm.

  • Friendly, Compassionate and Uber Professional

    Best Attorney (Paul) + Best Paralegal combo (Connie). Paul and Connie played a huge role in guiding me through an extremely complicated Divorce & Child Custody process. Both Paul and Connie were very patient and thorough professionals. They understood the gravity of the situation and acted swiftly on several occasions. They helped me understand the process, the time frames involved and urged action on my part to get to the final outcome. If you are looking for someone who will lookout for your and your child's best interest and is willing and able to work as hard as possible to get you the best possible outcome, this is the right attorney + paralegal combo for you. We had incredible access to both Paul and Connie and reached out to them at all times unlike some attorneys who you’ll leave a voicemail for and hardly get a return phone call within a day or two. Most importantly, I noticed how well prepared and in sync Paul was with my case when we went to trial. His clear and concise presentations to the judge, his direct style of questioning to the other party and his strong and professional demeanor was extraordinary. Paul is the best attorney, head and shoulder above the rest. Connie is very much a motherly figure. I'm grateful to have found them after meeting with several other local area attorney's. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking legal assistance with family law.

  • Two Words: Retain Him!

    Paul has helped me in an ongoing child custody case for almost four years now. Having him on my side has been a great comfort as this case has spanned from a simple custody agreement to false allegations of abuse to me having to fight to enforce our custody agreement. If you are dealing with a high conflict parent, Paul is the attorney you want! His ability to predict human behavior has been instrumental in guiding my success throughout. Knowing what the opponent will most likely do only comes from experience and Paul has it. If I had to describe Paul in two words it would be super hero. I could have potentially lost seeing my child permanently. I am thankful to say I now have joint custody of my child, I have 3 times more visitation than most noncustodial parents and pay child support that properly reflects my income. I have Paul Shaw to thank for all of this. So retain him now! Before your opponent does!

  • Paul is nothing short of a Super Hero.

    Paul is nothing short of a Super Hero. He is one of the best divorce lawyers in Birmingham, and he really cares for his clients. He knows the laws, and really helped me when i was going through a divorce crisis. He and his staff are extremely friendly, and keep you informed on what is going on with the case in a timely manner. They don't nickel and dime you for fees that are not relevant to your case. I would highly recommend him to anyone having, or going through a divorce.
