“My experience with my divorce before meeting Mia and her firm was terrible. I didn’t have representation and having Mia and Jill were like life savers, they came in at the time when I was ready to give up. The day that I met Mia in court, my whole life changed. She brought me to reality and told me not to give up. She fought for me and made sure my rights were protected, getting me more than I ever expected.

“I walked into the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates, P.C. to make an appointment and immediately knew I made the right decision when Jill and Angie took time to talk to me prior to scheduling a consultation. Mia and her staff got to work immediately and fought for me in ways that I couldn’t have even thought of. They communicated with me every step of the way. She told me all of my options and their likely outcomes. She stepped in right in the middle of things and was prepared to go to trial immediately if necessary to protect my rights.”

“My husband and I came to Mia with a very complex cross-border case. We were very nervous about it and she was very helpful in making us feel comfortable and confident. She was fantastic in the courtroom, extremely well-prepared and we ended up getting the case dismissed. Her humanity and her intelligence were impressive and we were very satisfied with her services.”

“I retained the services of Ms. Shaw in a complex cross-border case involving maintenance payments from my ex-wife. Ms. Shaw’s demeanor ensured I remained calm in trying circumstances. She was well prepared which ultimately led to getting the case dismissed. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone is similar circumstances.”

“It took me going through 3 attorneys to realize that, no matter how experienced an attorney is, if he/she does not have “TIME” for your case, you will have the worst experience and possibly the worst results. Ms. Poppe is one attorney that I can say hands down, dedicated real time to my divorce case which was rather complex and unusual. She was very efficient and kept me informed every step of the way, which was extremely helpful. She was quick to respond to all my emails and telephone calls. Not knowing where your case is heading or worse not understanding fully your available options is the most stressful scenario and anyone who has been through a divorce like I have will totally agree. If you are looking for a dedicated, trustworthy, knowledgeable and hands on attorney, who will fight your case every step of the way then look no further, Ms. Poppe is your guy!

“After the first consultation with Mia I felt 100% better and more confident about my inter-state divorce. With child custody, finances and a difficult (ex)spouse my stress was through the roof. Mia ensured me that we would work together and get through this trying time. Both Mia and her staff were helpful through out the entire process. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a supportive and efficient attorney.

“I interviewed over 15 lawyers until I met Mia. I went to the first hour consultation and immediately I knew that she was the professional that should represent me in my divorce. My case, as probably many others, turned out from a simple case to a complicated one after my partner changed her mind over and over on our settlement agreement. Mia took the lead and closed my – over 2 year – process divorced in less than 5 months. Her team (specifically Jill) is capable, professional, smart and punctual. I fully recommend Mia and her firm.”

“I don’t know what I would have done without Mia during this whole process. She guided me in the most professional and compassionate way. Mia was such a comforting presence to have from start to finish and her work was fast, efficient, and flawless. I can’t imagine what I would have done without her! She was highly recommended to me and certainly exceeded all expectations. I am so thankful to know that she always had my best interest in mind. Thank you!”

“My experience with this law firm was extremely positive. The staff was great and attentive, ensuring that I was at ease – knowing that anytime a person has to go to court, it is nerve-wrecking. One word describes my attorney, Mia Poppe – fabulous. She was professional, bright, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped to settle my nerves and had me feeling very secure as we entered the courtroom. If you’re ever in the need of a family lawyer, you should definitely consider the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates. Pricing is very reasonable, and the level of service delivered is extraordinary!

“My daughter’s mom was trying to take advantage of me through the family court system. She had been doing this for many years. I always knew that I should get a lawyer but was very apprehensive about getting one. So to ease my worries my wife and I did research and found a couple of lawyers. I talked to all of them but only Mrs. Mia Poppe made my concerns fade away. She actually gave me confidence about my situation. She explained what she can do for me and how her firm can stop the manipulation of my daughter’s mom through the family court system. Mrs. Poppe is extremely knowledgeable, confident, and firm when it came down to her present my case. She works very diligently prior to the hearing to assure that all points of emphasis are stated, clear and taken. I would recommend The Law Firm of Shaw & Associates to anybody. They will get the job done for you. Trust me, they did it for me. Now I pay a reasonable amount of child support and I have visitation rights that I didn’t have before. My daughter is 8 years olds. For the first time we spent Christmas together with the rest of my family. Thanks again Mrs. Mia Poppe & The Law Firm of Shaw & Associates for what you did for me and my family. God Bless y’all.”

“In my experience with lawyers, Mia Poppe is unusual. She is insightful and observant about Client needs, and an empathetic communicator. It seems her concerns are those of the Client, rather than the “firm.”

We worked with her on a particularly sensitive issue: that of a “Pre-Nuptial Agreement.” I cannot imagine a more delicate proceeding for an attorney to navigate. Mia advised both of us with care and understanding, not to mention humor. I would recommend her unconditionally for any case, in any circumstance requiring the agreement of human beings and the coordination of their concerns.

She is intelligent, and intuitive about human behavior, even through email, and over the phone, which I consider extraordinary skills.”

“I am a male, who for over 20 years was unfairly held in financial servitude to the State of NY because of a divorce. I had on many occasions tried to rectify my situation with them to no avail.Have you ever tried to go up against the State of NY? Good luck! Well, fortunately by the grace of God, I found the Law Firm of Shaw and Associates.Mia Poppe, Esq,. with the rest of the team of legal experts from the firm was finally able to do what no other legal counsel was able to do for me in the past, give me my life back. It wasn’t easy but through much work, perseverance, and legal jousting, “We beat the State of NY” and got a monetary refund. Just when you think it’s over, that victory brought about another related legal crisis, which the Law Firm of Shaw and Associates, got dismissed in two courts, Family and Supreme Courts. Another victory! I can’t say enough good things about my experience with this law firm and it’s pleasant staff. If you’re a male with Family Court issues and feel like you’ve been getting the shaft, or are just in need of legal counsel that is a strong advocate for “Father’s Rights”, I highly recommend, Mia Poppe and the Law Firm of Shaw and Associates. You won’t go wrong!
