Shelton & Steele

Change is Coming

1. We Prioritize People Over Profits

At Shelton & Steele, we put the best interest of the candidate first. We would rather tell an attorney to stay put, than put a commission first. We provide real time data that includes both positives and negatives of potential opportunities. The result is that in our 23 years in business, we've only had one attorney who wasn't at our client firm 24 months later.

Our consulting practice provides immediately applicable and actionable plans, techniques and procedures for implementing them that are so effective, we guarantee it.
If within 30 minutes you're not absolutely sure you've made the best possible investment, we refund your money.  

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.

What We Do

Law Firms Mergers & Acquisitions

Lateral Groups & Attorneys

Street Smart Consulting

We have over 20 years of identifying and coordinating the lateral acquisition of premium talent and business opportunities. 
Our "Street Smart Consulting" programs are the result of working with and debriefing hundreds of successful rainmakers, as well as start up and mid-size firms seeking increased revenues and profitable, strategic expansion. This isn't academics, theory, infomercial-like seminars or "fluff".
We offer practical, immediately applicable techniques, solutions and strategies for those seeking to take their practice or firm to the next level.

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.
