The Shanahan Law Firm LLC

For the Firm, who and what its Clients are and the relationship between the Firm and its Clients are issues of major importance. The Firm views the professional services that it provides not as a business but as a profession, a vocation. While the Firm necessarily cannot ignore the financial aspects of its profession, the Firm is founded on a fundamental belief that if the Firm remains focused on serving its Clients in the truest professional sense, the dollars will take care of themselves.

The Firm is in the profession of law, not in the business of law. The Firm prefers to operate on a handshake. The ties that bind the Firm to its Clients are not contractual. The Firm is first and last a “relationship” law firm. The Firm is not the right law Firm if there is not going to be a real relationship with the Client. Once the Firm decides to accept a Client, the Firm is making a commitment to that relationship which, for the most part, is a commitment that is made regardless of the Client’s ability to pay for the professional services provided by the Firm at various points in the relationship. The Firm serves its Clients through good times and bad times. The Firm is not a “fair weather” law firm.
