Her philosophy is to partner with her clients to help them create and build their legacy and to protect their legacy.

Her industry knowledge and connections add tremendous value to her services.
“I support entrepreneurial innovation and growth by helping visionary leaders in the fashion, cosmetics, entertainment, and technology industries unleash the full potential of their brands.”
In her estate planning practice, Shaina expands her reach to other individuals and families. In addition to working with entrepreneurs, Shaina also specializes in working with blended families and families with young children. As a wife and stepmom, Shaina is able to understand the needs of business owners and families to protect and plan for wealth and prosperity for generations.
Shaina represents her clients with passion, compassion, and curiosity because she knows, first-hand, what they’re experiencing. Shaina prides herself on being a true counselor at law and offering effective, efficient, and responsive legal services of the highest quality.
For Shaina, developing a close professional relationship built on communication and trust is the key to successful partnership. She succeeds when her clients succeed.
“It’s my goal to become a trusted legal advisor and ally to my business and estate planning clients. I want to help them to protect what they’ve created and push them to achieve new heights.”
Shaina began her legal career as a civil and criminal trial attorney. She worked zealously to achieve the best outcome for clients. It was a trial attorney where she first honed her counseling skills. Representing clients at a time when something had gone wrong in their lives allowed Shaina to gain understanding and insight into changes that would have saved her clients from court. Shaina turned that hindsight into foresight when she transitioned away from representing clients at trial and instead helping them to business successful businesses. She carries that same planning foresight into her work with her estate planning clients.
Shaina earned her undergraduate degree, a B.S. in Regional Studies, from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 2003. She earned law degree from Beasley School of Law at Temple University in 2007. She earned her specialized Master’s of Law degree, an LL.M. in Intellectual Property, from Cardozo Law School at Yeshiva University in 2016.
Originally a New Yorker, Shaina has lived in many of the wonderful cities in America and abroad including Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Barcelona, Spain. She’s an avid linguist, fluent in Spanish and proficient in French, Portuguese, and Italian. She currently makes her home in Florida with her husband, stepson, and two cats.
Shaina is barred in New York and Pennsylvania and practices federal intellectual property and tax law in Florida.
Prior to establishing Jones Legal PC, Shaina was an intellectual property attorney for a Fortune 500 company; a civil litigation attorney in New York; and an assistant defender for the Defender Association of Philadelphia.
