Deep Empathy and Deep Expertise

At Shea, we believe that preserving your legacy and protecting yourself and your family is one of the most important acts in life. We believe we have a sacred responsibility to guide you through that process, which starts with listening instead of preaching. The result is customized counsel, not formulaic advice.

Our Shea Law attorney was knowledgeable, thorough, and, most importantly, personable. He was able to communicate legal jargon in an understandable way. We are relieved to have this much needed planning done for our family’s future and for a reasonable cost.

The whole process was quick, efficient and affordable. Thank you to all the Shea Law team from the bottom of our hearts!”
