  • Words cannot fully describe what an amazing attorney and advocate you will have in hiring Shawn Overbey.

    “My fiancé and I hired Mr. Overbey to assist us with obtaining primary physical custody and shared legal custody of his teenage son. Words cannot fully describe what an amazing attorney and advocate you will have in hiring Shawn Overbey. As a licensed attorney myself, I can speak to Mr. Overbey’s clear understanding of the law, his professional demeanor, and reputation amongst the legal community. As a client, I can attest that Mr. Overbey calms your fears, and coaches you throughout the process. I particularly appreciated how he provided us with realistic outcomes, expectations and next steps. This was extremely helpful when our initial request for an expedited hearing was not heard and we had to wait for a formal custody hearing. Understanding all of the possibilities helped us to strategically prowpare and not lose hope. I am pleased to report that my fiancé gained primary physical custody just as we set out to do. I would hands down refer anyone who is looking for a zealous advocate to Mr. Overbey. He will make a stressful process manageable and you will even have a few laughs along the way!”
