“I came to the firm of Elsberry and Shively at one of the most desperate times in my life. Betsy immediately made me feel comfortable with sharing my story. It was so wonderful to feel as if someone was going to finely make me feel safe. She knew what needed to be done and did it in such a way that kept everything clean and fair. It was a long drawn out divorce. Betsy made it easy financially for me to continue on. She worked with my family and me as if we were all family. I consider her and her wonderful legal assistant Serena my friends. Betsy, her partners and staff could not have been any better. I cannot say enough good about them.”

“When we were in the stage to find an attorney to help us finalize the adoption of our daughter from the foster care system, we chose Betsy Elsberry.  Betsy did so much preliminary work that when our hearing took place, my husband and I had the utmost confidence that the adoption could never be contested.  Betsy made everything easy for us to understand and did her job as an attorney to the best of her ability.  We are looking forward to Elsberry and Shively representing our family again for our upcoming adoption.”

“I have been a client of this law firm for nearly 10 years. Erica has helped me through a divorce, custody issues, and even a false criminal matter. I feel confident that putting my legal matters in her hands will keep me safe. The support staff is top notch. They guide me through all the legal paperwork, explain concisely what each document means, and even take my opinions under advisement when I think certain wording would work better. When Erica has appeared for me in court she is amazing. She is composed, but there is a passion in her voice that lets me know she cares about my case, and she is fighting for me.

I firmly believe that God had Erica right where she should be, doing exactly what she should be doing.”

I called Erica when I was going through a tough divorce and custody battle and Erica Shively took my case and worked through every detail with me (and I was definitely a very needy client). She is professional and highly knowledgeable, but more importantly she is honest and cares about her clients. (She’s also a hoot to talk to!). She has a very competent, professional and friendly team of employees as well. I can’t say enough about this group of people.”

“When our lives were in danger of being turned upside down, a friend of ours referred us to Elsberry & Shively. Betsy exceeded all of our expectations. Betsy has all the qualities of a great attorney: unparalleled work ethic, vast knowledge of the law, incredible professionalism, high integrity, class, empathy and unflappable demeanor inside the courtroom. Betsy knew how devastating a negative outcome would be to our family and she poured everything she had into our case. She responsibly manages her caseload so that she has the ability to give that same amount of effort to each one of her clients. Most importantly, she treated our family as if it were her own.

“As a lawyer and firm, Betsy Elsberry and her staff displayed many standards of excellence. Their precision team work helped to create a positive, trustworthy relationship and build confidence. In the face of adversity, it gave me a sense of peace and comfort knowing that she was striving for purposeful outcomes every step of the way. 

Betsy set the foundation on which I am now building a future with my family. In her professional demeanor, Betsy has the best interest of her clients in mind yet assured that things were fair and equitable for both parties involved in my divorce case. Her approach to engaging with both parties was favorable for all.   

Besty and the NoDak firm’s time, effort, dedication and commitment to helping myself and their clients achieve success is exceptional. She and her colleagues represent the highest quality legal assistance that the Bismarck-Mandan area and across the state has to offer.”
