"Jeremy Shufflebarger and his law firm provided unbundled legal services for my divorce in 2016 and essentially acted as a consulting attorney for my case. Jeremy was an excellent listener and provided sound and professional advice. He was very familiar with the family court, the divorce process, and mediation and was able to help me navigate a difficult time. Despite a busy schedule his assistant Andrea always made it possible to set up a call with him and get my concerns addressed in a timely manner. Having Jeremy and his team in my corner made a difficult situation a little less stressful. Thanks for everything." - Ryan Hogan
