Shelby Mastriano, Attorney


Shelby was just a kid when she vowed to go into law to help families going through what is arguably one of the most difficult, if not the most difficult, times in their life. She says, “My goal is to help families set their sight on a brighter future and help them get there—to turn a difficult situation into an empowering one. Everyone should feel empowered to own their story and rewrite it in such a way that makes them happy- it’s never too late!”


While Shelby masters the art of creating the most intricate, beautiful charcuterie boards, she pursues an adventure of another kind:

Running a marathon in each of the 50 states.

Shelby has a deep appreciation and understanding of the hardship and struggles that families face when going through a divorce (and all the hurdles that come with it), especially for the children involved. Having grown up in a loving home with her mother and her grandparents; experiencing first-hand lasting impact divorce (and life thereafter) has on a family, Shelby was elated to join the Freed Marcroft team and to work with professionals who all share a unifying passion and purpose in helping families reach their goals.

Hailing from Wisconsin, Shelby received her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claireand, and went on to complete her studies at Roger Williams University School of Law. While in college, Shelby served as a mentor for the Restorative Justice Program and for the local Big Brothers, Big Sisters organization.

Shelby lives on the shoreline with her CT-native husband, their 5-month-old son, their yellow lab, Remington, and their cat, Gwendolyn. Shelby says that any day spent with family and friends is a day well spent, and she particularly loves traveling, camping, relaxing by the pool, and watching episodes of Friends for the umpteenth time.
