What Sets Us Apart

     Dedication, sensitivity and the commitment to personal service defines The Shanker Law Firm, P.C. From its inception, The Shanker Law Firm, P.C. has limited the number of its clients so that each client is provided with the attention they deserve.   The firm is often called upon to act on behalf of other law firms or solo practitioners seeking its expertise on particularly complex cases or sophisticated issues of law or simply for the purpose of retaining the services of a firm known in its field for getting the best possible result for their clients. The foundation for our extraordinary achievements can be attributed to the firm's selectivity, structure and aggressive trial preparation.  Our clients always have immediate access to the attorneys handling their case.  Personal attention is our motto. 

Attention to Detail

     The Shanker Law Firm, P.C.’s attention to detail begins with its clients.  Each client is given a comprehensive consultation and each legal matter case carefully discussed, reviewed and evaluated. Upon acceptance of a case it is immediately assigned to a team comprised of support staff and a preparation attorney. Assignments are made according to the nature of the case and the expertise of the legal team.  The institution and application of this team approach ensures personal involvement on a continuing basis and allows clients the opportunity to communicate directly with those most intimately familiar with their case.
