Emily can’t be touched! Emily has given My husband Walter his life back. When he caught his charge of murder in 2017 we was told by many attorneys he wouldn’t stand a chance in trail and to sign a plea. Walter knew like we all did he was innocent. We meet Emily in 2019 and she was the only attorney to really believe and fight for walter. Walter in 2022 got his freedom back all because of her.His case was dismissed half way during trail. If you are have doubts about hiring her don’t she will change you life for the better like she did not only walter but all of us. Emily no amount of money could ever give us back what you have we are so thankful god found us you. Many miracles are coming your way. She is the best and i do mean the best attorney in houston tx.
****HIRE THIS ONE!*****My Girl! Saved My Life! Once I hired Emily my BP dropped to normal levels. She is such a go getter for you and you don’t even know or have to stress about the next reset date or that day of DISMISSAL!!!!!!! For this 40 something year old single mom home owner to be charged with felony assault, you can understand how my life would have changed. She is a badass lady and Attorney! Through A year during Covid and doing zoom court resets, Emily was present in court every time and I could see what a great rapport she has within the courts. She is the most real down to earth cool person that you can count on to represent you. You want HER to take care of you, hands down! #Freedom!
Believed in me when few else did. I was potentially facing a very long sentence, my Court appointed asked my age, after I told him he said you're looking at spending the rest of my life in prison, so I hired her, she was fast and was doing the initial interview with me within hours, after several months she had my case dismissed and let go, free of charges, I highly recommend her, she's aggressive and knows her way around the courtroom
Ms No Deals. She works hard for you For me she was like Lil Boosie lawyer we ain’t taking no deals we gonna beat them. And she did just that
Couldn't have asked for another Attorney! Emily Shelton was very attentive with my brother's case and answered all the questions my family had for her. We received great news about his case but was honest about what could happen at court. We are very happy with the results and would recommend her to everyone who needs an attorney. Thank you!!
Wonderful Job! Ms. Shelton did such a wonderful job with my boyfriends case. She was very attentive, would answer any questions we had, and went above and beyond to help him with his case. She made me feel very confident and comfortable in what she was doing, and I’m so grateful we had her! I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a lawyer to represent you.
The Best Lawyer Ever. I love her so much. She is so professional and consistent. She is one of those lawyers who really cares about her clients. I would recommend her to any and everyone. She was a true blessing to me and my family.
Awesome representation! Emily from day one saw truth in me in her eyes I was innocent until proven guilty, unlike our system. I truly felt like she didn’t look at me as just another problem, but as a person that had a truth that needed to be heard, she’s a fighter and personally I would have her on my team at any time. Thanks Emily you’re the best
My family and I have been working with Emily Shelton for a little over a year. Throughout this difficult and oftentimes confusing process, she's so helpful, informative and encouraging. She's always gone the extra mile to ensure that we always have the information that we need and has provided so much hope during frustrating moments. I absolutely recommend working with Emily if you want an empathetic attorney who will make sure justice is served.
Emily is the BEST Hands down! Hiring Emily was is the best choice I ever made. She fought for me and won, and get my property back to me. Emily is the sweetest, kindest person you could ever come across. She is genuine and honest, she will fight for you and never give up till the fight is done. She gave me life tips and assured me that everything will be ok and kept me confident. We need people like Emily inside and outside the court system. I wish the best for you Emily and keep fighting for our rights. Thank you.
Attorney Shelton was awesome, specifically she got the case dismissed with simple volunteer work and restitution which i thought was very fair. We were able to work with the victim and obtain a Non-Prosecution Affadavit which made both sides happy.
Family Violence. Miss Shelton was great with my case. She was able to get the DA to drop the charges upon me taking a 4 hour anger management class. Hope II wont need her again but if I do I will surely give her a call.
Best Criminal Defense Lawyer there is! We hired Emily Shelton after fighting our case for 2 years and never coming to a resolution. Our former lawyer had no knowledge and would delay and reset over and over again. We met Emily, and from Day 1 she worked extremely hard to get our case dismissed. My husband had 5 cases pending on him and we were super stressed on a daily. From the jump Emily already figured she could get 2 cases dismissed. We worked from there to gather all of the necessary information so that we could prove my husbands innocence. After about 5-7 months(which only took this long because we had to wait on the prosecutor to review the case, and we had 3 different prosecutors throughout this experience), the end result was that Emily Shelton was able to get all 5 cases dismissed and my husband was free! We were so grateful. Emily is a hard-working lawyer and will do ANY and EVERYTHING she can to get your case resolved. Me and my husband fully recommend her work! Ms. Emily has great communication skills and brain storms the entire situation. We know you will be happy with her services just as we were.
I hired Emily after I was charged with felony Aggravated Assault. She really fought for me, and knew the prosecutors she was dealing with well. She got my case lowered to a misdemeanor, and I didn't have to do any extra jail time. She is also nice.
Solid Attorney! She is one of the most caring and bright attorneys I've ever met. I felt completely comfortable with her and would recommend her to anyone.
I had a great experience with Attorney Shelton representing my case. She was thorough, engaged, and had an understanding of justice for the people. She is passionate about this career and it reflects in her work. I appreciated her keeping me informed and presenting the case eloquently. I definitely recommend her if you are seeking a well versed Criminal Defense Attorney. She charges a fair amount and will be worth every dime.
Extremely Satisfied! Shes extremely thorough when it comes to handling your cases to get results im forever thankful I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HER !
Emily Shelton is a Rock Star. She is amazing and would hire her again anytime. If you need a good lawyer she is the lady. She took my uncle's case and today he will coming home. Best tears I have ever cried...
The Best Lawyer Ever!! I love her so much. She is so professional and consistent. She is one of those lawyers who really cares about her clients. I would recommend her to any and everyone. She was a true blessing to me and my family.
