Don't Just Take Our Word For It
Hear From Our Past Clients

  • From our first meeting, we knew we were going to receive excellent legal representation.

    “Joe quickly put us at ease by explaining in detail, from a legal perspective, our options and what we should and should not expect. His demeanor in the courtroom was impressive.”

    T.W.

  • 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!”

  • He gets an A+ from me.

    “Mr. Heath and his staff explained every action to be taken and ensured my understanding by a line-by-line explanation in some cases. Each time I visited his office, I was met with a smile by each person I came in contact with.”

    P.C.

  • Hunter Old and his team were focused, professional and achieved positive results, quickly.

    “Hunter Old and his team were focused, professional and achieved positive results, quickly. I highly recommend him and his firm.”

    C.A.

  • I'd pay him more if I could just because of how he has treated my loved one and I.

    “I had to have called a thousand attorneys and none of those that I actually had the opportunity to speak with acted like I was human, they were cold and my issues weren't important to them. Some of the attorneys who wanted to charge $5-10,000.00 don't even get on the phone with you, they have someone else send a message and you have to communicate through a third party, at those prices you should give personal attention to your potential clients. However, when I received the callback from Mr.Overbey's office his assistant Gale was so pleasant, she listened to me, empathized and even comforted me in my situation which she did not have to do. It was already closing time but I wanted to meet with him that day so they went above and beyond and waited for me to get there that same day! When I met Mr.Overbey he was just as pleasant, he took his time with me and promised me his best and I felt comfortable with him and Mrs.Gale, we were a match made in heaven. I hired him on Feb.2, 2011 and our case is scheduled for 3/3/11. He is knowledgeable and moderately priced but worth every bit of his price! I'd pay him more if I could just because of how he has treated my loved one and I.”
