At The Shellist Law Firm, we believe that every case is unique and requires
its own creative and well-planned strategy. No two individuals or cases
are alike. At our firm, we first like to meet with the clients to get
to know them and their stories. Who they are, where they came from, and
what they say happened: these are all important factors that need to be
explored prior to mapping out a sound legal strategy.
Next, it is important to know as much about your opponent as possible.
Spending on the front end to learn the propensities and weaknesses of
your adversary is money well spent. In the words of Sun Tzu, know thine
enemy! Our team believes that he who knows the most about the facts and
circumstances of a case will undoubtedly have the upper hand.
Finally, it is important to develop a strategy that is realistic, yet optimistic.
If you are innocent of the crime you’ve been charged with, or if
the Government’s case is riddled with doubt, then you deserve a
dismissal. Likewise, if you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s
negligence or wrongdoing, then you deserve to be compensated.
Too many attorneys tell their clients what they think the client wants
to hear, and not what they need to hear. Clients are often extremely stressed
when they come to visit us at our office. Whether they are facing serious
criminal charges, or have been severely injured in an accident, clients
are scared, depressed, and uncertain. At our firm, we believe that direct
and accurate communication with the client is indispensable for the emotional
health of the client.
The attorneys at The Shellist Law Firm, PLLC are not afraid to fight if
that’s what it takes to win your case. In law, you cannot force
your opponent to give you the deal you want. You must either convince
them that it is the right thing to do, or you must have the courage to
let a jury decide your fate. And if you take your case to a jury, then
it is imperative that you have an attorney that is battle-tested.
