About Shaheen & Gordon, P.A.
New Hampshire Attorneys at Law
William H. Shaheen and Steven M. Gordon served together as the United States attorney and assistant United States attorney for New Hampshire from 1976 through 1981. When they left the United States Attorney's Office and contemplated private practice together, they saw a need for a law firm built on a foundation of total commitment to client satisfaction. Since that beginning, Shaheen & Gordon has flourished, earning statewide, regional, and national accolades for its legal representation. With over 30 lawyers practicing in a wide range of disciplines, our firm is known as one where clients turn time and time again to have their cases prosecuted and defended and their business interests nurtured and protected. Several of our attorneys have been recognized for their excellence in a variety of practice areas.
The firm serves institutional and individual clients throughout northern New England — New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont — in a broad range of legal matters including, but not limited to, personal injury law, state and federal criminal defense, DWI defense, divorce, paternity and child custody matters, workers compensation and social security disability insurance claims, real estate law, and healthcare law. Additional practice areas include corporate fraud and internal investigations; governmental affairs, employment matters, libel and slander law, wills, trusts and estates, intellectual property and unfair competition, and general corporate and commercial representation. The firm also encourages its attorneys to be active in civic life in New Hampshire and many of our lawyers have taken a leadership role in community initiatives and programs.
