Client Testimonials


“Kelly represented my son in a recent case. He was very professional and on the day of trial, he covered every aspect of the case in order for the judge to have a clear understanding of everything that had gone on. I was very impressed and I would not hesitate to hire him for myself if I ever need representation. Highly recommend.”

“I could not be more pleased with the level of service and professionalism I received from Kelly Shattuck. This is the 2nd time I’ve had to use his services and I have not been let down. Kelly is thorough, professional and knows what he’s doing! In the court room, he is exact, to the point and gets the job done. I hope I never have to talk to him again (haha) but should I need an attorney, he is my first call. Thank you Kelly!”

Brian

“I had to utilize Kelly’s services twice in the past few years; Once for a divorce and once for a modification. I had a positive and successful experience with both. Kelly was able to guide me through the process both times and was not only receptive to what my end goals were, but ultimately achieved those goals for me in both instances. He is an extremely capable and competent attorney, and while I hope to never need his services again, should a situation arise, I would hire him again without a second thought.”

Shaun

“I have nothing but good things to say about his office. Very professional and very accurate. Important to have strong representation on your side.”

Brandy

“Kelly currently represents me for a custody case regarding my children – due to the nature of the case and it not being finalized yet, I’m not going to comment about it, what I can say about Kelly is that he continues to be veracious in court and a isn’t afraid to back down from a fight. He’s determined to win the right way and ensuring the client’s interests are being looked out for. I would strongly recommend Kelly to any of my friends or, strangers, going through custody battle as this isn’t his first rodeo. Kelly has continued going to bat for me and winning the small “battles” hearings that we’ve attended thus far until we get to court.

If you’re looking for a strong family practice/divorce/custody attorney Vacanti/Shattuck is the firm you should be contacting. Vacanti Shattuck are the kinds of attorney’s you want to have around but never need to use, rather than not having them and really needing them. If you have any kind of issues that are going on don’t hesitate to contact Vacanti Shattuck – they will fight for you, as they’ve continued fighting for me.”

“Kelly listened to me and was able to present all of the evidence in court that helped me win my case. I would highly recommend.”

Bryan

“I found myself in a terrible situation. My ex wife was cheating on me and lying to me not honoring our marriage. I tolerated till it started to affect the kids. I had to man up and divorce her. Hired a friend of a friend’s attorney and filed. She left didn’t let me see the kids and my first attorney made such a mess it wasn’t looking good for me to get joint custody. Then out of desperation and firing my first attorney I was calling around to try to find another attorney. Kelly was the only one that spoke with me over the phone before receiving payments. He made me feel at ease I thus hired him. After that life changed he straitened out the mess my previous attorney made and before I knew it we were in the driver’s seat. He fought hard for my finances and my reputation as a father. The results were clear!!! He won me my boy. Joint 5050 no child support no alimony no paying for her attorney. I can not thank Kelly enough. When my life was in shambles he came in and saved the day and many days after!!! Kelly if you read this it’s been a couple of years but I wanted to say thank you. The impact you’ve had on my life was immeasurable and rarely do I feel thankful for having my son do I not think of you!!! Your a Damn fine attorney and man!!”

David

“Mr. Shattuck is the best family law attorney available and I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a divorce or custody case. He has a complete command of the law and once he heard my facts, he was able to explain exactly what needed to be done to accomplish my goals. He didn’t sugar coat the process to get my business. He maintained communications throughout the process and sent me copies of everything including monthly statements showing everything done on my case. If I had questions, he was always willing to call or email me back with the answers. In court he was excellent especially in his cross examination where he really pointed out the weakness of the other attorney’s case and where I felt made the difference. He was direct and tried to present the materials to the judge in a simple matter that I also thought helped. His staff was always professional and very helpful. In the end, Mr. Shattuck was able to accomplish my goals. I won custody and the financials came out as he had explained they would during or initial meeting.”

Sandra

“Vacanti Shattuck was the best choice I could have made when looking for an attorney that would protect the best interests of my children and myself. It was clear from the first meeting that they had the experience and knowledge to make sure we were protected. Chris is very precise in his understanding of the outcome that you want and will work towards that goal. I searched several attorneys in the area and no one impressed me more than him and his staff. His staff is very knowledgeable and helpful to get quick answers to your questions. Hands down the best family law attorney in the area.”

Bryan

“This was a very frustrating and stressful situation, so anyone can be critical of an attorney when it costs so much money, but the money I spent was the best investment I have ever made. If you want a quality Lawyer, retain Kelly. I bet my Ex wife wishes I wouldn’t have.”

A Satisfied Client

“Chris Vacanti and his paralegal Kathleen Laughlin really made me feel comfortable during a very tumultuous divorce. Whenever I would start to get frazzled or worry about the outcome of my case, they were great listeners and would calm me down. I don’t wish anyone to ever have to go through a divorce and custody battle, but if you do, Vacanti Shattuck Family Law is a wonderful resource who will be at your side and help you through it.”

Leia

“Chris Vacanti is in a class of his own. My experience with Chris and his paralegal Kathleen was completely outstanding. Divorce is extremely difficult and some attorney’s will milk it and cause more drama. Chris and his team worked hard to reduce the cost and limit the difficult exchange during the divorce process. My case needed to go to trial. Chris absolutely destroyed the other attorney during the trial. Chris’ prep work and litigation skills are incredible. He and his team are who you want on your side.”

Bryan

“Kelly Shattuck did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a solid attorney.

There was always someone available and everything was handled in a timely manner. ”

Tom

“Kelly Shattuck is an outstanding lawyer. He showed great interest in my divorce case. Kelly was there to protect me and my interests. I was awarded custody of my son and received everything I asked for. He was very thorough and efficient. Kelly is not one of those lawyers who just wants your money. I felt he genuinely cared. He was always there to answer any questions and give guidance through the divorce. He and his staff were great! He’s a master in the court room. I definitely recommend Kelly Shattuck if you are looking for the best.”

Al Thompson

“If I could give more stars I would! I had FANTASTIC representation from Kelly Shattuck. I recently went through a custody battle for my now 9 month old son. I had previous representation before Kelly from a lawyer I found online that offered a free consultation. This lawyer left me in a terrible situation where a plan to phase into joint custody was in place. I am a young mom (19) and this first lawyer took advantage of me and left me with a massive bill. Kelly not only helped me avoid paying the fraudulent bill, but he ended up getting me SOLE physical custody. Kelly charges more then most lawyers, but he is more efficient with his time, thus actually saving you money. He was knowledgeable, professional and realistic from the beginning. He kept me in the loop throughout the entire process, and I always felt I was in good hands. My case ended up going to trial after failing to agree during court ordered mediation. I was nervous, but Kelly was a bulldog in the court room and fought SMART for my case. I ended up getting more time then what I would have agreed to in mediation. I am so thankful someone recommended Vacanti Shattuck. I would not be in such a good position moving forwards without his help. I very much recommend him and encourage anyone needing help to set up a consultation. You won’t be sorry.

THANK YOU KELLY.”

“I live in GA and hired Kelly Shattuck to help me gain visitation rights to my son in NE. Kelly and the rest of his office went out of their way to help me with my case from half way across the country. Although my son’s mother fought me the whole way, my son is here with me now over this Christmas break and I will now get to continue to be a part of my son’s life thanks to Kelly. I highly recommend working with Vacanti Shattuck, especially you dads out there.”

Olesya

“Chris Vacanti was my only voice of reason during the most difficult days of my life. His initial consultation will tell you that he is focused on not only father’s rights but also upholding the children’s best interest. I found that he was tough on his opposing council and pushed for closure on all topics. In the years since we successfully settled my case out of court, I sleep well knowing that we sought fair compromise allowing us to now focus on the kids’ well being. I have confidently referred Vacanti Shattuck multiple times as a quality firm who will educate and provide closure.”

Gregg

“Chris Vacanti did an exceptional job with my case. I felt that he always kept the true issue, my daughter, in the forefront. Chris’ experience and expertise was very obvious throughout the process. In addition to Chris, his paralegal Suzy was always very helpful. Can’t see myself ever using a different team to protect the most important things in my life, my children.”
