William H. Shaheen and Steven M. Gordon served together as U.S. Attorney and Assistant US Attorney for New Hampshire from 1976 through 1981. When they left the U.S. Attorney's Office, and contemplated private practice together, they saw a need for a law firm built on a foundation of total commitment to client satisfaction.
For the past 35 years, Shaheen & Gordon has flourished, earning statewide, regional and national accolades for its legal representation. Their initial trial experience has been used to create a diverse litigation practice where client claims are both prosecuted and defended.
The firm serves institutional and individual clients throughout Northern New England (NH, ME, MA, VT) in a broad range of legal matters including, but not limited to healthcare, securities, governmental affairs, criminal and civil defense, DWI/DUI/OUI defense, personal injury, employment matters, workers compensation, entertainment, libel law, wills, elder law, trusts and estates, divorce and family law, immigration, and general corporate and commercial representation. The firm also encourages its attorneys to be active in the civic life of New Hampshire and Maine, thus our lawyers have taken lead roles in major community initiatives and programs.
