ShounBach is a professional, highly responsive, reputable, and ethical law firm
I retained ShounBach to prepare a property settlement agreement and to process my divorce documents through the appropriate County Circuit Court in Virginia. I am exceedingly satisfied and indebted to ShounBach for its handling of my family matter. My case was complicated because my ex-spouse is not a U.S. citizen and lives abroad. Nevertheless, Al Bonin was able to work out a property settlement and draft the final agreement within three weeks of my initial consultation. Kathleen Hassett and her support staff prepared my divorce documents and guided me through the process of having the documents signed and notarized. We were set back initially due to the reluctance of a U.S. Embassy abroad to notarize my ex-spouse’s waiver of service. Kathleen and her support staff addressed this issue within a matter of hours, and we were successful in obtaining the proper notarization. My Final Divorce Order was signed by a judge within one week of Kathleen submitting my package of documents to the appropriate County Circuit Court. The support staff at ShounBach—especially Jessica DeVaughn, Cindy Brown, Amanda Hutchison, and Patricia Palmer—were great to work with. My divorce was Final within the original projected dollar amount and time estimated by Al Bonin during the initial consultation. ShounBach is a professional, highly responsive, reputable, and ethical law firm. I unreservedly recommend them for handling family matters, whether those matters are domestic to the U.S. or International in nature.
I highly recommend Sarah Knapp and the SHOUNBACH law firm!
I reached out to SHOUNBACH for legal representation for custody and visitation cases. So thankful I did! Sarah Knapp has provided me with an legal counsel on a number of different appearances and is a pleasure to work with. Sarah was honest, professional, and kind. She got to know my situation thoroughly, let me know my options and possible outcomes, and never made unrealistic promises. I highly recommend Sarah Knapp and the SHOUNBACH law firm!
I will recommend her to a friend if they ever need her services.
Sarah Knapp represented me in my 2015 divorce. From our first conversation, Sarah listened to me and provided a steady voice in some trying times. She took the time to explain the process, what I should and should not do, and what to expect throughout the divorce. Each time I met with her or exchanged emails she made me feel as if I was her most important case. I will recommend her to a friend if they ever need her services.
I am thankful that you were a part of helping the kids...
I wanted to take the time to thank you for all that you did to get us to a final agreement last night. I was awestruck by your ability, as well as the Judge's, to maintain focus and drive the process forward even when I was hitting the wall and the hours droned on. I am truly sorry for starting to come undone. As much as I tried to avoid it, I think the break in my stride was inevitable as the day took its toll and the offers appeared bleak. Thank you for pulling me back and keeping me focused on the endstate.
As I think back about what we were able to accomplish, I do think that we made a lot of progress and that the agreement that was reached was a strong one for both the children and for myself. I feel a great sense of relief in having delineated parameters on so many fronts, and feel empowered to move forward into the next chapter of our lives.
I am thankful that you were a part of helping the kids and I work to find our new happy.
Divani used creative strategies to come up with a solution that best worked to my advantage.
Divani Nadaraja recently represented me in executing a messy divorce agreement. There were complications from the beginning of this enforcement. Divani used creative strategies to come up with a solution that best worked to my advantage. She worked within her boundaries, but was able to get what I was owed. Divani used her insight and pulled from the extensive knowledge of the ShounBach legal team to optimize the outcome. Without her tenacious nature, I am sure the results would have been very different. I would highly recommend Divani to anyone seeking divorce counsel.
Al and his team have provided the most professional and proactive approach to my case.
Al and his team have provided the most professional and proactive approach to my case. The level of communication was perfect, walking that fine balance of ensuring that everything is accomplished and watching how the money is spent. They were always at least two or three steps ahead of the pack ensuring that we were prepared for everything that was coming our way and also had a plan of attack. Al also had a very gentle side when dealing with the emotions relating to the case.
He went above and beyond to provide me with the information that I needed...
Please thank Mr. Bonin for his support late last year. He went above and beyond to provide me with the information that I needed in simple terms, and was creative in providing a plan that would be most affordable to me. I will highly recommend him.
Al suggested and implemented solutions that quickly resolved problems...
I sought a divorce and soon learned that the legal actions would have to take place in Virginia where my wife lived rather than the state where I lived. I was referred to Al Bonin and am pleased to report an excellent working relationship resulted. Despite several conflicts, steady progress toward a solution and equitable settlement was achieved. I was impressed early on by Al's knowledge of applicable law. Al suggested and implemented solutions that quickly resolved problems that might have delayed progress for months. Working over a separation of thousands of miles, I was nevertheless kept well informed on planned actions and progress. My high recommendation for Al Bonin and his staff is made with sincere gratitude for the service the firm rendered me in a time of need.
I do not know how I would have handled the many twists and turns... without their wise, thorough, and expert counsel.
Al Bonin and Molly Garrett assisted me during a trying and lengthy custody evaluation involving elementary-aged school children. I do not know how I would have handled the many twists and turns, ups and downs of this emotional roller coaster without their wise, thorough, and expert counsel. It was apparent to me from the first time I met Al Bonin that he had the best interests of the children firmly in mind throughout this time. Molly's efforts on behalf of the children were fabulous as well. I highly recommend Al and Molly to anyone who is facing a custody dispute.
I was devastated walking into her office and by the time I left I felt empowered and I had a smile on my face.
Currently Molly Garrett is representing me while I go through a divorce. I wanted to take this opportunity to pass along my thoughts. She is fantastic. We entered into an agreement with my ex very quickly because of her expertise. Also, she brought things to my attention I would have never thought about. She is always so quick to respond. The time stamps are well into the night hours. I feel she is going above and beyond for me as well as my 4 year old. Also, she is funny, friendly, confident and just great to be around. I was devastated walking into her office and by the time I left I felt empowered and I had a smile on my face. It was the first smile in a month. I could not be more pleased with my experience with her. Please pass this along to whom ever it may concern.
