Shaheen & Gordon Elects Five New Partners

The shareholders of Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. are proud to announce the election of five new partners to the firm: Lauren Breda, Jim Callahan, Joseph Cherniske, Andrew Piela, and Lyndsay Robinson.

Lauren Breda has over a decade of court experience, including serving many years as a New Hampshire public defender. She represents clients in a range of criminal matters, from driving offenses to homicides, with empathy and tenacity.

Jim Callahan built a very successful practice in Peterborough before joining Shaheen & Gordon. He has been a member of the New Hampshire Bar for more than 35 years. He represents businesses, financial institutions, and real estate clients, leveraging a wealth of knowledge to advise them on planning, operational, and transactional matters.

Joe Cherniske spent a decade as a state prosecutor and built a strong reputation as an aggressive litigator. He focuses his practice on criminal and DUI defense, representing clients charged with serious misdemeanor and felony crimes.

Andrew Piela has nearly three decades of experience in private practice. He focuses on family law, civil litigation, and appellate work and brings an impressive depth of knowledge to bear for his clients to ensure their peace of mind.

Lyndsay Robinson focuses her practice on family law, estate planning, and probate administration. She is a compassionate advocate for her clients and was recognized by the New Hampshire Bar with the prestigious Robert E. Kirby Award and the Bruce Friedman Pro Bono Award in 2023.

“We are thrilled to strengthen our partnership with such an impressive roster of talent,” says Michael Noonan, Managing Partner of Shaheen & Gordon. “These five attorneys represent different backgrounds and areas of the law, but they have displayed a common commitment to our firm, our clients, and our communities. They’ll be passionate voices in our ongoing effort to do good work and make a difference.”

With this election, the Shaheen & Gordon partnership grows to 24 members, representing a firm of over 120 attorneys and staff.
