Change is Coming

1. We Prioritize People Over Profits

Our consulting practice provides top to bottom enterprise architecture for individual attorneys and small to medium sized firms. 
We offer immediately applicable business & marketing  strategies and specific techniques for bringing in clients.
This includes a comprehensive and detailed analysis of current data usage, software, client assessments, business practices, and client development  procedures. 

Our proven approach for customizing and implementing the most effective methodology is so effective, we guarantee it.
If within 30 minutes you're not absolutely certain you've made the best possible investment, we refund your retainer. 
Search & Mergers
At Shelton & Steele, we put the best interest of the attorney(s) first. We would rather tell an attorney to stay put, than put a commission ahead the incredibly valuable careers that are entrusted to us.

We provide candidates with real time data that includes both positives and negatives of potential opportunities, counsel and insights from 24 years of working nationally and a road map of firms that should be avoided.

The result is that in our 24 years in business, we've only had one attorney who wasn't at our client firm two years later.


2. We Have a Social Conscience

We donate money to charity out of every dollar received. We take time off every month to volunteer for worthy causes. We do everything we can to make sure our success, is not ours alone.
All ships rise with the tide.

Our Philosophy

Corporate Darwinism Has Arrived.

The practice of law is undergoing sweeping changes for the first time in decades.
The most significant differences are that the changes are driven by clients, technology and the Virtual Practice Space.
New breeds of competitors have arrived and they are already taking market share. Cases and deals in the hundreds of millions, are slipping through the fingers of BigLaw and MidLaw.
Our expertise is in working with the spinoffs, boutiques and most importantly, APF's (Alternative Platform Firms) that are rapidly moving from innovators to Mass Market Movers. We also work with a very few of the most progressive AmLaw's.
If you're not aware of how rapidly things are changing, we should talk. Because you should be.
