No matter what you're charged with, Henry Shih is ready to defend your freedom
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit my page and learn about me. I grew up about half an hour outside of Detroit, MI. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's in Economics, taught private violin lessons for a year, then went to law school at Washington University in St. Louis, where I focused heavily on criminal law, criminal procedure, and trial advocacy, and earned top honors in WashU's prestigious Criminal Justice Clinic.
I practice criminal defense because I love the work and love the people I meet. I strongly believe in the rights of the accused; whether you're falsely accused or guilty as heck, I believe you have the right to have a dedicated, skilled, and hard-working attorney to get you every advantage the law allows. I also get immense satisfaction from helping out people in their time of need.
You'll notice that I don't list any other areas of practice on my profile page. I'll try to help anybody I can with any kind of issue, but first and foremost I'm a criminal defense attorney. I believe this kind of focus and dedication to the craft gives my clients the best possible representation so I can get you a great result in your case.
Thanks and best wishes,
