    Attorney Profile

    An attorney at DangerLaw, LLC, in Newton, MA, Amanda Shuman focuses her practice on family law matters. Amanda represents clients throughout Middlesex County and other parts of the greater Boston metropolitan area. Ms. Shuman joined her firm in May 2016, and she has been admitted to practice in Massachusetts since 2013. Ms. Shuman is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

    Many of Ms. Shuman’s clients are people who are seeing their marriages come to an end and who are in many cases thus having to deal with issues such as property division, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation. Ms. Shuman also works with clients before they get married to ensure their assets are protected with prenuptial agreements.  She is trained in both mediation and collaborative law, and as a result, she is often able to help many of them come to an accord on some or all of these matters through the use of those methods of alternative dispute resolution. In cases where issues remain unresolved, Ms. Shuman advocates on their behalf before family court judges.

    Ms. Shuman has also represented people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting and support court orders. Her family law experience has additionally included the preparation and review of prenuptial and post-marital agreements.

    Ms. Shuman majored in political science and English writing at the University of Pittsburgh and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. She subsequently went on to pursue her legal education at the University of Massachusetts School of Law in Dartmouth, and in 2013 she was awarded her Juris Doctor. Prior to joining DangerLaw, LLC, Ms. Shuman worked for an organization that furnished low-cost legal services. Ms. Shuman was awarded SuperLawyer's Rising Star honor, 2020.
