Jonathan E. May
Ms. Mahone’s clients are very lucky to have her as their advocate.

Tina El Fadel
I would highly recommend Anastasia to anyone who wishes to have a strong, smart, aggressive, knowledgeable and personable attorney.

Luis Cartaya
Always knows what she’s talking about in her field. All clients I sent over say the same thing. Responds to clients immediately. Never leaves them hanging. Always candid towards the tribunal and very professional. I haven’t met one client, and I’ve sent more than 10 over to her, that wasn’t happy with the services she provided. They all come back and tell me how thankful they are I made the introduction.

Anastasia’s Facebook Reviews:

Richard Youngman
Would definitely recommend Anastasia from SHAMY, EL FADEL & MAHONE. I made the mistake of using a different firm for my divorce and had Anastasia revisit my settlement agreement after my divorce was final. The only regret I have in my divorce was not using her initially.

Olivia Montalbano Bittles
Anastasia is an amazing, professional and detailed orientated lawyer. She knows what works as well as her clients like the back of her hand! She is hard working and very well devoted. No stone goes unturned or over looked with Anastasia. She is spot on and great at her job.

She is tenacious in every aspect of her life and it bleeds over into her ability to practice law.

Anastasia’s Avvo Reviews:

-Hired for Custody Response
When my current custody agreement was to be changed by my former wife, I felt like I was to be cut out of my child’s life. I was referred to Anastasia from a colleague and after reading her reviews she seemed like a great candidate to have on my side. Working with Anastasia has been a pleasure. She is very available for answering questions about the case and she has a system in…

-Knowledgeable, Professional, and Personable = Excellent Attorney!
We contacted Anastasia (Ana) in order to get our wills drafted and she was able to fit us in on very short notice. She was very thorough in explaining all the details along with making her professional recommendations. We highly recommend Ana and will contact her for any future needs.

-Reliable and Punctual
I had a family emergency and needed to file a power of attorney form. Anastasia provided prompt and accurate information when it mattered most for my family. I highly recommend her if you need something done by yesterday. 

-Being in the NFL
Okay so being in the NFL and starting this whole process of looking for a lawyer can get really tiresome. After interviewing many, Anastasia’s name came up. At first I was skeptical because of my own reasons but let me tell you, I have NEVER met such a compassionate hard working person in my life. My agent was even impressed with her work. She was always available no matter what time I had to call her and at the times where most lawyers would take advantage of me financially she stayed true to her word and looked after me. I was afraid of having such a young lawyer at first but I 100% do not regret my decision to go with her, she made the situation and process, although stressful at times, go by so smooth! She always kept me informed in not in an annoying way but instead like she related to my case. I’ll def be working with her again!

-Top of her Game
What a pleasure it is to have a lawyer that you can count on to take care of every detail. She is far a head of any case she is working on. Nothing left undone. And, you can reach her anytime. Not after 10 pm though. Keep up the good work Ana.

-Wise and caring
Ana was such a blessing to me. She set aside the time to uniquely learn my situation while being my living “filter” from the emotions I was experiencing. I feel she was very thorough, knowledgeable, and most importantly professional. I am pleased to continue working with her and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone going through a divorce situation.

-Divorce Settlement
Ana worked diligently, professionally, and with compassion to get me results on repayment of alimony and also alimony going forward since my ex husband decided he no longer wanted to pay me. She researched every avenue regarding my complex martial agreement, and I was simply stunned by her extremely thorough depositions. The settlement agreement was approved before having to go to trial. I would use her again and highly recommend her to anyone needing representation in family law. Simply said, she is highly intelligent and has a great work ethic!

-Divorce/child custody
Anastasia helped me through the most difficult time in my life. I had no idea where to start and did not have much patience but Anastasia helped me through everything step by step. It was a difficult divorce because I wanted to get more time sharing with my daughter, as well as keep my house that I purchased before I was married. Anastasia helped me achieve these important things. She was very comforting and understanding through the whole process as well. I am thankful I had her by my side.

-Phenomenal Service
I want to give kudos to the SHAMY, EL FADEL & MAHONE Team. Especially Ana Mahone, she is very intelligent, professional and personable. I was very stressed and overwhelmed about the case and Ana remained helpful, pleasant, and very responsive always keeping me current with the status of my case. Thank you.

-Best lawyer ever!
Anastasia is an extremely smart, empathetic person that takes her position very seriously but has a human side as well. Her professionalism and attention to detail provides a reassurance that is welcomed when choosing an attorney. I am extremely pleased with the work she has done for me and her fees are more than fair. I recommend retaining Anastasia to anyone who wants representation that is capable and actually cares about their clients.
