Highly Recommended!

Going through a divorce isn’t easy.. It is incredibly important to have the best attorney to represent you. She was my attorney and she was outstanding! She was very compassionate, caring, and honest. She was always prepared and brought many things to my attention that I was unaware, to advocate the best outcome for my children and myself. She was very dedicated to my case and kept me well informed of the proceedings. I have recommended her to several of my of my friends who also thought she did a really good job. I highly recommend her!

An excellent family law attorney

Sheila has been my lawyer for the past 7 1/2 years. She handled my divorce as well as several post-divorce matters that arose in the last several years. Sheila not only knows family law inside and out, but she has good relationships with court personnel and has built up a lot of credibility during her career, all of which makes her an outstanding lawyer. Sheila is also very accessible. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing an excellent family law attorney.

Awesome Family Law Attorney!

I have worked with Sheila several times over the past 10 years and I am completely satisfied with her professionalism and efficiently. Due to my son’s father, my court case seems never ending, he fight’s me every step of the way for every little thing. I can honestly say that Sheila has made that a lot easier for me to have to deal with. I had previously hired a different attorney from a big law firm and after going through thousands and thousands of dollars and getting nowhere, I made the decision to switch and go with Sheila. I wish I had done my research from the very beginning; I could have saved myself a lot of money not to mention aggravation!
Shelia is the best; she is professional, efficient and pleasant to deal with. I have noticed over the course of my case that other attorneys, judges, court commissioners etc. have a lot of respect for her and she is very well liked. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know or encounter needing an attorney who deals with Family law.

Great attorney, thorough, confident, and highly recommended

Attorney Romell has represented me since 2005 for a divorce with minor children, continual unpaid medical expenses and variables, family court appearances, and for any advice I’ve needed over the past decade. She is straight to the point, and willing to strategize with you. Her long standing career in Family Law has proven to me numerous times that I can fully trust her to represent my case. She has 2 assistants who are always available during regular business hours. They are organized, willing to help field my calls and questions, and very pleasant on the phone. Attorney Romell and I were always prepared for court appearances or phone negotiations. Truthfully, she is busy but very thorough. I have never been let down by her representation, and I highly recommend her.

Best of the best

I can’t say enough good things about Sheila, not only as a person but especially as an attorney! As long as you are straight forward and honest with her she will get you the best results of ANY attorney in Milwaukee and Waukesha County… I have had her represent me several times as my “ex” likes to take me back to court and Sheila is undefeated!! She carries the respect of her peers, Court Commissioners and the Judges.

Outstanding Divorce Attorney

I was referred to Sheila by a friend knowing that my divorce was not going to be easy. Sheila has helped me in every way possible to focus and stay to the point. She went beyond the call of duty to explain the process. Her expertise and impact in court made a huge difference. Her success helped me get my life back. I definitely recommended her to many of my friends in need. Many thanks, Sheila!

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

I hired Sheila 10 years ago on a referral from a coworker. Best phone call I could have made! At a time when I felt the most exposed and vulnerable with my children, Sheila was a there to stand between me and the greatest threat I have faced in my lifetime. It’s been a long tiring road and Sheila has never let me down. I have the utmost respect for her expertise and talents. She is tough as nails -FEARLESS – and an expert at negotiating with unreasonable individuals. She has so much experience and insight, she has the respect of her colleagues and judges, she is m-e-t-i-c-u-l-o-u-s-l-y organized, she gives solid advice, she’s fair and painfully honest. I trust her judgement. I’m so glad I called her. She’s made this horrible experience as tolerable as possible – it’s gut wrenching any way you look at it, but knowing that she’s there for me and my children makes it much less frightening. I feel safe having her on my team. I highly recommend her.

Great Attorney

I had no idea what to expect out of the legal process regarding custody and placement. Sheila explained everything in detail and always took all my calls/questions quickly. Her assistants were always very professional and courteous. She is very meticulous in her work and always kept me up to date on what was going on. I had heard horror stories on attorneys wasting your time to get more money, but she was opposite. Detailed, thorough and to the point. She has a wonderful reputation and there is a reason for that. The only thing I would have changed was my constant calling her to verify this or that was done. She assured me multiple times of the steps/process. I would not hesitate to call her for anything in the future regarding this. She also sends copies of any correspondence so you have documentation. I have referred her to multiple people and will continue to do so.

An excellent lawyer!

A few years back I was caught in a horrible divorce. I hired Attorney Rommel and was very happy with the results. Attorney Rommel was compassionate, professional and fair. I would not hesitate to hire her again for my legal needs. I would recommend her to family and friends that are looking for a family law attorney. Thank you Attorney Rommel for all of your hard work and dedication on my case.

I was so fortunate I found Sheila on Avvo! I went in for a consultation and knew right away I wanted to hire her to represent me. She handled everything professionally and efficiently. Even though it was a difficult case with my ex-wife, Sheila was well prepared and did an incredible job in court. She kept me informed of the process and told me all I needed to do. I highly recommend Attorney Sheila Romell.

Sheila is amazing!

Sheila is fair, smart, and really knows her stuff. She helped me through a painful divorce by looking out for my best interests when I couldn’t. Her office is in a convenient location with plenty of free parking. I have recommended her many times. One never wants to have to hire a divorce lawyer, but if you must, Sheila is the one!

Sheila’s Review

This was quite possibly the toughest time I’ve gone through & Sheila was there for me all the way, clearly letting me know my next step. She took the pressure off during such a difficult time. I’m certain I could not have found better representation or a better a outcome thanks to her help.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Sheila has represented me since 2009. I had many questions and fears. She walked me through my divorce process from start to finish not only as a client but as a friend. Even to this day if I need her she is still just as helpful and caring.

Outstanding Divorce and Family Attorney!

Sheila was recommended to me as a top Attorney when I needed one for my divorce. This was a very scary time for me and I had never hired an Attorney for any needs in the past. I called Sheila for an initial consultation and I knew from that conversation on that I had met the best Attorney possible.

Sheila is not only what you would expect in a professional but her level of knowledge, support offered, effectiveness in and outside of the courtroom and care taking of her clients makes it completely understandable as to why she is deemed a “Super Lawyer”.

Sheila appropriately fights for her clients and really understands their needs long before a case goes to trial. Those who she opposes know that immediately and have to prepare well in order to stand and support the other side.

In regards to family law, Sheila is my go to Attorney for all questions. If I need to hire her again in the future I would be extremely blessed to have her representation and care.
