About Shuff Law Firm

With over 40 years of combined legal experience, the Shuff Law Firm is not only highly skilled and experienced, but also dedicated to providing the highest standard of excellence in professional services, as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

History of the Shuff Law Firm

Attorney Joseph A. Shuff, III commenced his general practice in 1974 with the original firm name, Law Offices of Joseph A. Shuff, III. Over the years, Mr. Shuff's skill and success in the arena of family law expanded, and a change in the associates of the firm transformed the Firm's practice exclusively to family law. Attorney Tamara Shuff Mortensen, a Certified Family Law Specialist, joined her father in 2006 at which time the Firm took its current name. The two have worked both together, as a thorough and formidable team in complex family law matters, as well as separately, handling their own cases individually with the utmost professionalism.

The Shuff Law Firm has successfully handled family law cases of every spectrum, including uncontested dissolutions, as well as complex, high-asset divorce cases, high-conflict child custody cases, post-judgment child and spousal support modifications, domestic violence actions, paternity actions, and premarital agreements.

Shuff Law Firm Staff and Policies

The Shuff Law Firm has a skilled and dedicated staff, including ABA Certified Paralegals who possess not only a strong knowledge of legal procedures, but the compassion and empathy most clients need as they navigate through the process of their case. The attorneys make it a priority to be available and attentive to the needs of each client and are committed to alleviating their concerns by promptly providing sound legal advice upon request. The Shuff Law Firm takes great pride in providing individualized attention to every client in order to gain a full understanding of their circumstances and advocate for the best possible outcome.

It is the Shuff Law Firm’s policy to keep every client apprised of the status of their case by providing them with copies of all correspondence, pleadings, records, and any other documentation relative to their case throughout the handling of the entire proceeding. The attorneys and staff are easily accessible by phone, email or fax to address and handle the needs of each client whenever a concern may arise.

Both Mr. Shuff and Ms. Mortensen are renowned for "telling it like it is" in that they provide realistic estimates of the potential outcome of each case based upon their seasoned experience, both in settlement negotiations and in the Courtroom. The attorneys strive to resolve cases expeditiously and without the necessity of court intervention whenever possible; however, they will also aggressively litigate any case with expertise and thoroughness, effectively advocating for the best interests of their clients whenever warranted.

The Shuff Law Firm is dedicated to providing the highest standard of excellence in legal services with sensitivity and compassion, as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
