Legal News

Shea, Dangora & Nelson offers a variety of professional legal services designed to meet the individual needs of its clients.

Our attorneys are highly credentialed and have more than 100 years of combined experience.

We advise and serve our clients in the following areas:

                                         CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LITIGATION

We offer skilled litigation services to clients with civil and criminal matters.  We have successfully represented major corporate clients and independent local businesses in a variety of civil matters, from simple collection work to the defense of complex malpractice claims and liquor liability actions.

We also represent individual clients with civil and criminal problems of all types.

                                   AUTO & OTHER ACCIDENTAL INJURIES

We have been active in personal injury litigation arising out of automobile accidents, slip and fall injuries, work related injuries, medical malpractice and defective products for many years.  We consistently achieve impressive recoveries for clients with personal injury claims.

We do not refer our clients' cases to other attorneys.  All aspects of the case are handled by attorneys within the firm.  All personal injury cases are handled on a contingent fee basis.  If the case is accepted, the client is responsible for the expenses of litigation, but there is no legal fee due unless there is a recovery.

Initial client consultations in these areas are without charge.

We handle all types of domestic relations matters, including divorces, separations, modifications of existing court orders and contempts.

Adoptions, guardianships and conservatorships are areas in which our office has been active for many years.
