Dover, NH -- Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., has elected two new shareholders,
or partners, to the firm Faye Goldberg and Jared O’Connor.
“We are thrilled to welcome Faye and Jared as partners in our firm.
Both have worked hard to provide outstanding counsel to our clients across
Northern New England,” says Managing Partner Michael Noonan.
Faye R. Goldberg’s practice focuses on family law, including divorce,
legal separation, parenting rights and responsibilities and post-divorce
matters. She began practicing law in 1986 in Hampton, where she continued
to work for the next 30 years. Faye continues to represent clients at
mediation, settlement negotiations and in all phases of litigation. Her
practice is concentrated in complex domestic relations and parenting disputes.
She has substantial experience in cases dealing in both large and small
marital estates, including residential and commercial properties, closely
held businesses, trusts and pensions, as well as alimony, insurance and
other related matters. Many of her cases also include contested issues
involving children in divorce and paternity cases, such as residential
placement, parenting schedules, co-parenting and child support. In her
practice, Faye works closely with other professionals in areas like real
estate, parenting abilities, retirement benefits, financial planning,
tax implications and business valuations, so that each client is provided
comprehensive representation tailored to his or her unique case.
Jared has focused his legal career defending the interests of working men
and women in New Hampshire who suffer injury on the job. After attending
the University of New Hampshire and Boston College Law School, Jared interned
for New Hampshire Legal Assistance and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s
Consumer Protection division before ultimately entering private practice
in Nashua upon graduation. He quickly built a reputation for vigorous
and compassionate advocacy on behalf of his workers’ compensation
clients, protecting their rights, winning benefits and, when necessary,
taking their cases to the New Hampshire Supreme Court to establish important
victories that have changed the law for New Hampshire citizens. These
include establishing the right of part-time workers to assert claims for
job reinstatement and clarifying the legal standard to make it easier
for injured workers to recover for their repetitive stress injuries. For
these efforts, SuperLawyers recognized him as a "Rising Star"
in the field of workers' compensation in both 2012 and 2013. Jared
has also taken the lead in lobbying efforts and testifying before at the
State Legislature to advocate for laws that will improve the rights of
injured New Hampshire workers and is a frequent speaker at national and
local seminars on workers’ compensation.

and national accolades for its legal representation. With its attorneys
