  • 5 star review  I was proud to be represented by Brookshire Law Office where integrity and dedication is held in high regard. Not easily distracted from “noise”, professionalism is top level and always in play while still leaving room for compassion. A firm that recognizes the importance of communication and not only welcomes it, but is effective at it. I will be returning for any legal needs in the future with complete confidence and would recommend the firm without pause. A special thank you to both Shawn and Jeffrey.
