Shelnutt & Varner, Attorneys at Law

What Makes Our Gadsden Law Firm Different?

Professionalism: There are other Birmingham and Gadsden law firms who tend to use publicity stunts and used car salesman tactics to lure you into calling one of their many offices. All you need to do is turn on the television to see their commercials or ride down virtually any stretch of interstate to see their billboards. While we specifically make no representation about the quality of legal representation, one way or the other, that you will receive at any of these “state wide” or “nationwide” firms, we can comment on the quality of representation you will receive at our firm.

Clients Come First: While we have represented thousands of clients over the years, we refuse to give into the temptation of choosing “quantity over quality.” Our goal has always been, and will continue to be, “quality over quantity.” What does that involve? It involves The Shelnutt Law Firm taking the time to give each client the individual attention that client deserves. Every case is different and your case is no exception. Our goal is to make you feel like you are the only client we have. Your questions will always be answered, you’ll always be treated with respect and dignity and the information you share with us will always remain confidential. We’ll be your trusted partner throughout the process.

Competent and Aggressive Representation: At The Shelnutt Law Firm, we will take the time to properly analyze your case and give you exceptional legal representation. This involves spending time on your case and using every legal tactic and option available to get you the best possible result. While you won’t see our lawyers swinging a sledgehammer, standing on top of a semi or snapping our fingers for a check, you will see our attorneys provide you aggressive, competent legal representation and fight tooth and nail for you, every inch of the way. We promise not to back down from anyone. That’s how an attorney gets a client the best result possible.
