Recent Hires

Since Much Shelist was founded in 1970, we have pursued a strategy of intelligent growth that acknowledges and anticipates our clients' evolving needs. While some firms compete on size alone, we believe that we act in our clients' best interests when we add attorneys and skill sets that offer specific, value-added services.

At Much Shelist, our attorneys are some of the most experienced in the profession. What's more, we take great care in choosing the attorneys who will join our team. Most attorneys who join our firm have more than a decade of real-world, practical experience. Even our associates generally join the firm with a strong background in specific legal disciplines and come to us ready to hit the ground running.
