Michael Noonan, Managing Partner at Shaheen & Gordon, attributes the firm’s rapid growth to “a simple desire to help people and a deep-rooted understanding of the region’s legal needs.”
Since his first term as managing partner started in 2007, the firm has tripled in size, adding its 50th attorney and sixth office at the beginning of 2023. “We’re almost always seeking talented attorneys to add to our team to keep up with the demand for quality legal services,” adds Michael. To help support this growth, Joseph Shoemaker has joined Shaheen & Gordon as Director of Operations.
Joseph previously worked for the State of New Hampshire for nearly a decade, most recently as Director of the NH Office of Professional Licensure and Certification. He brings vast experience in HR and organizational development. Shoemaker is a passionate resident of the granite state and serves on multiple boards across New Hampshire, including the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, Plan NH, Second Start, and the Black Ice Hockey Association.
“I’m thrilled to join an organization with so much history and impact in New Hampshire,” says Joseph. “The firm has grown organically due to its positive mission and the hard work of partner attorneys. With an additional layer of operational guidance, the firm has limitless potential.”
Shaheen & Gordon’s six offices are in Concord, Dover, Manchester, Nashua, Peterborough, and Portland, ME. The firm serves thousands of clients every year in a wide range of practice areas, including personal injury, criminal defense, family law, business law, estate planning, and immigration.
