Her previous career within the financial sector at Citibank, GE Capital and Bank of America enables her to thoroughly analyze complex financial records and handle negotiations aimed at achieving an equitable distribution of marital assets.

The Bachelor of Science in psychology that she earned from the College of Charleston in 1986 provides Ms. Poppe with insights into human behavior that allow her to guide clients through emotional disputes. She obtained her legal education at the North Carolina Central University School of Law, where she was awarded her Juris Doctor magna cum laude.

  • Hi, I’m Mia Poppe, the Managing Partner of the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates. First, thank you for viewing our video titled, Parental Alienation. Too frequently, the non-custodial parent’s attempt to co-parent their child or children is wrongfully hampered or frustrated. This wrongful frustration of parenting may rise to the level of what psychologists call parental alienation. If you believe you are experiencing parental alienation, you may be entitled to legal remedy. I often pursue two legal courses for my clients that are experiencing the harsh effects of alienation: first, I may file a petition to modify the custody or parenting time arrangement if there has been a substantial change in circumstances and the best interest of the child is no longer being served. Second, a drastic action is to file a motion requesting that child support payments be suspended due to the unreasonable frustration of visitation with the child. Please know, our courts vigilantly guard the interest of minors, and a suspension of child support is an extreme remedy, but nonetheless, it is an available remedy if the facts justify it. If you believe you are experiencing parental alienation, I encourage you to contact the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates today, to schedule your free initial consultation with me.

  • Hi, I’m Mia Poppe, the Managing Partner of the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates. First, thank you for viewing our video titled, “I’m a parent, not George Steinbrenner. Too frequently, the non-custodial parent is relegated to no more than a check writer, without any true voice in the parenting of his or her children. I help clients who have been marginalized to the status of a mere check writer. The two most common legal issues faced by my clients struggling with the “George Steinbrenner issue” are: Firstly, lack of parenting time or decision making ability, and secondly, in the post 2008 world, the need for a downward modification in previously awarded support payments. If you are experiencing either the lack of parenting time or you need a downward modification of support payments, I encourage you to contact the Law Firm of Shaw & Associates today, to schedule your free initial consultation.
