Ever since Shanin was brought on our case her no nonsense approach bode very well for us and not for the other party. Shanin has eased the burden of a stressful situation and has made life easier on us. She leaves no stone unturned and will make sure your case gets taken care of. I recommend Shanin to anyone who needs an attorney.Sep 10, 2014
When I initially met with Shanin she was very friendly! As we discussed the plans for my case she was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I especially enjoyed that she was virtually always available to answer any concerns I had. She was promptly on time to court hearings! I would highly recommend her to anyone who has to take the family law journey. She not only has the professionalism but also the emotional tenacity to help you get through this situation in life!Sep 5, 2014
Some folks give attorneys a bad name. I think a lot of folks hear the word, "lawyer" and automatically assume that there's a soulless, money-driven person attached to it. Shanin Turner is the antithesis of that stereotype. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Mrs. Turner will shoot you straight, tell you the truth, and fight for you as if you're family. As a former school teacher, her love, compassion, and honest-to-goodness concern for children absolutely shows in her daily work. She is dedicated, honest, forthcoming, sincere, and no-nonsense. If you want someone to sugarcoat the situation, look elsewhere. If you want someone who won't lead you down the wrong path just to get to your paycheck, then definitely put your trust into Mrs. Turner. I have never seen an attorney who genuinely cares about her clients the way that Mrs. Turner does. When she went to court on a custody issue for my husband, I was touched by how passionate she was about our case. She offers a very personalized touch and will do anything in her power to ensure that she represents you fairly, justly, and to her very best ability. I would recommend Mrs. Turner to my closest friends and family, should the need ever arise. I'm grateful for her and her amazing work ethic.Sep 4, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Your fee will, of course depend on your exact needs. I know clients hate to hear this, but each case is different. And if you truly want to pay for a one-size fits all legal fee, then youu usually get what you pay for. In other words, it won't fit ALL your needs, and, sadly, I have seen many people hire me later on down the road because they didn't get everything they needed the first time in their original court order. However, if you have an uncontested matter, (the other party and you both agree to all the terms ) then your legal fees will be much cheaper, and the time spent will be much less because you don't need to go to court hearings. For these uncontested matters, I charge one set fee and I arrange a payment plan for you over the next few months, so that when it is time to finalize the documents, you have paid the entire fee. Call me to get ranges for fees or visit my we page at www.txlawgal.com/what-we-charge.HTML I promise you, I will charge a competitive rate that is fair to both you, the client, and fair to me, the business owner. I also give you a free, limited consultation, and if you need more time with me to answer more questions, I don't mind at all. I will charge you for my time, but if you hire me, then the money you pay for that time gets credited back to your entire fee package. I feel that's pretty fair.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Family law attorneys must take a minimum of 15 credit hours each year to remain certified. I usually take more. I currently have 43 hours of credits for this year, and just recently attended the Advanced Family Law Conference in San Antonio, the largest conference of Family Law Attorneys in Texas. I was a lifelong learner as an educator, and I guess I still am as an attorney!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I taught elementary school for many years, and saw the impact of BAD divorce, consequences of the do it yourself divorces that went very wrong, and custody fights that treated the kids as pawns. I saw the outcome of improperly low child support and parents who didn't let the kids see their other parent. I saw these outcomes with the kids in my classroom. I saw stress, worry, not enough food to eat, not having school supplies, not having shoes that fit, and low grades. I wanted to make a difference outside of the classroom for these parents and their children. After my youngest reached the last year of high school, I went back to school at night while continuing to teach full time during the day to get my law degree. I loved teaching, and touching lives, and helping others. I still get to do this with my law license , just in a new and different way. I do it in the courtroom!
