About
I began my career as a litigator at Paul Weiss, after clerking in Federal Court in Brooklyn (EDNY) for Judge Frederic Block and graduating law school from University of Pennsylvania, magna cum laude, where I was an editor of the Law Review. Experience in employment law, compensation and benefits, mediation and arbitration, contract drafting and review, legal research and writing.

After leaving Paul Weiss, I spent my career in non profit organizations where I was often tasked with general counsel work.

I have just started a solo practice as an attorney mediator in family law cases and am looking to diversify my legal work.

She’s a strong, strategic, articulate and poised advocate for issues that matter, infusing the right mix of empathy, compassion and humor into her work. She’s a gem!! I recommend Shelley unequivocally and without reservation. Hiring her was a highlight of my own managerial career."
