Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is proud to welcome experienced trial attorney Andrew J. Piela to its legal team. Andrew’s practice focuses on family law, probate, civil litigation, and appellate work.
Andrew has been practicing law for over 27 years. He regularly appears in trial courts in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and handles appeals before the New Hampshire Supreme Court and Massachusetts Court of Appeals.
