Why Hire Shaw Family Law, LLC?

Knowledge & Experience for Your Birmingham Divorce

After a number of years representing Fortune 500 companies, Attorney Paul B. Shaw, Jr. wanted to have a more personal relationship with clients, and to mitigate the emotional and financial toll experienced by parties involved in divorce litigation. The experience gained in representing corporations is invaluable in representing clients facing a division of their assets in a divorce, particularly in those cases involving family owned businesses, as well as in modification of a decree, when there has been a change in circumstances.

We Do Our Homework

Working closely with the client is our Birmingham divorce lawyers’ top priority. We are very thorough in the discovery process to insure that the client has a complete picture of the marital assets, and that we have all documents, witnesses, and other information necessary to present our client’s case at trial. When appropriate, we work in concert with other professionals, such as counselors, accountants, and financial planners, before, during and after the divorce process, to help ensure that our client is financially protected.

A Commitment to Success

Even in the worse circumstances, our attorney work hard to achieve the best possible outcomes.

At our firm, a successful case includes:

  • Cases that result in both parties being financially stable
  • Those where spouses are able to maintain a genial and amiable relationship
  • Where clients and their children are able to maintain a quality of life after the divorce process
  • When both parties understand all aspects of their case and how to proceed in the future

Paul Shaw and the staff at Shaw Family Law, LLC recognize that the emotional and financial aspects of divorce and child custody are intertwined.
