Shana is not your standard lawyer – she is dynamic and incredibly relatable. Her straightforward attitude and laid-back demeanor put me at ease and gave me confidence that she would settle my case quickly and favorably. Shana does not treat her clients as names attached to court dates but as people with aspirations and dreams, fears and concerns. My experience with court this year was surprisingly easy, quick, and pain-free thanks to the guidance and counsel of Shana Stein. Not only did she settle my case before I had to return for a second court date, she got my case completely dismissed!
