  • Jed Shaw is a lifesaver! I have my life back.”

  • “Over the past year, I lost my job and our family quickly amassed a stack of bills. We felt defeated and depressed. Shaw & Associates gave us back our peace of mind. I recommend them to anyone in this situation.”
  • “We always paid our bills on time. My husband lost his job but found a position with less income. For a while, our only way to live was to use our credit cards, which we maxed out. We defaulted on two cards and could only pay the minimum on two. We had been warned against debt settlement and did not want to file bankruptcy but were being harassed with calls which may have caused my husband to have a heart attack. I lost almost 30 pounds. Judge Shaw worked out an alternative for us without bankruptcy or debt settlement. He will always be remembered by our family.”
  • “During the last few years our daughter had two serious illnesses without much insurance, my husband was out of work for one year and I went back to work. We partially lived on credit cards and we defaulted on them because of reduced income. Everyday, harassing phone calls caused anguish, despair & depression. Judge Shaw was able to eliminate these calls and give us peace of mind. He solved our creditor problems and we were finally able to sleep at night. I am pleased to recommend him and his solutions.”
  • “Our business slowed and our income went down. We had to use credit cards to pay some of our bills. Eventually we could only pay the minimum and became desperate. Jed Shaw reviewed our situation and managed our credit card debt, allowing us to concentrate on growing our business, We feel blessed to have Judge Shaw as our attorney and advisor.”
