About Shellist Law 

Helping Clients Pursue Personal Injury Claims in Houston & Beyond

Whether your legal issue is civil or criminal, in the end, your success depends on trial skills. At The Shellist Law Firm, PLLC, every member of our team is a trial attorney to the core.

The ability to persuade an audience to see your side of the story—and not your opponent’s—is an art. It’s what brings you leverage in a legal battle. And it’s what makes success possible in criminal and civil matters alike. Whether you are seeking legal counsel over criminal allegations, corporate compliance, or civil causes of action, you will want an experienced trial attorney on your team.

About Our Philosophy

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.
