Dayna Shoot


With a performance background and a teaching degree, Dayna is as comfortable in the court room as she is in the boardroom. Her practice encompasses all areas of family law, from determining parenting schedules to resolving complex financial disputes. Dayna prides herself on finding creative and practical resolutions to her clients’ family law issues. Dayna is a compassionate listener who understands that her clients often come to her during the most difficult and trying times in their lives. Her clients tell us that she makes them feel heard and presents them with unique solutions that fit their needs, rather than cookie-cutter responses. Equally skilled in drafting as she is in oral advocacy, Dayna is also a great teacher, skilled at helping clients to understand the process and to feel empowered. Did we mention that Dayna is not only a kind and thoughtful advocate, but also witty and down to earth? We can attest to that! Dayna makes sure that her clients feel comfortable and confident as their matters progress. She also helps them to remain focused on what is most important to them, while being cost-effective; a pretty stellar combo if you ask us. When she’s not working hard for her clients, Dayna can be found at a local comedy show or playing with her pint-size pup, aptly named (you guessed it): Justice!
