  • Mark Ryan Thiessen

    Shelby has been working for me for almost 2 years. He is my rising star. He is currently in residency with Samuelson and Thiessen, LLP. I have no doubt that he has what it takes to make a fine trial lawyer. Any client would be lucky to hire Shelby before he gets ridiculously expensive to hire.
