West Family Law Group Attorney Shane Herbert was selected to the 2018 Florida Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers, chosen by statewide voting of Florida lawyers. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state under the age of 40 are named Rising Stars, regardless of practice area. He was named to the list in 2017 as well.
At West Family Law Group, West and Herbert focus upon “successful divorce” and family law matters, helping clients maintain control of outcomes through collaborative law and mediation as alternatives to litigation.
