Shelly Kalra and the team at Stanchieri deliver on their reputation. While the situation was filled with emotion for me personally, Shelly and her team were compassionate, professional, and delivered high-quality service. Shelly provided legal counsel to help me understand my options and always kept my best interests in the forefront.

I was very pleased with the service(s) I received. Both the professional and administrative staff were supportive, knowledgeable and approachable. I was very comfortable in all my interactions with them.

The only reason my ratings are not higher is that I have nothing to compare them with - my last legal advice was when I purchased my house in 1976.

Shelly Kalra is highly capable in answering my questions and providing advice on the various options that were available to me. Even though the other lawyer was confrontational, Shelly was focused on the matter and over several months was able to establish solid foundations for success. Through these foundations, I now proceed without her and any further lawyer fees at this time. She has no issues with me proceeding without a lawyer and continues to be available if required.

I retained Shelly Karla after having gone through real disappointments with my previous attorney who had over 25 years of experience. I was very apprehensive about changing my representation. But from the first time I met Shelly for a consultation to this day, I am impressed with her knowledge of the law, aptitude to listen carefully, and professionalism. Shelly was able to resolve my matter in a matter of months. I would recommend her without any hesitation. She is the BEST!

I was very well represented by Shelly Kalra with an awkward agreement that had a few unique issues to sort out. Shelly was a pleasure to work with, both flexible and efficient in getting things done.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
