About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Slip and fall accident
    I've handled approximately 20 slip and fall cases per year for the prior 28 years. I calculated that to exceed 500 cases. That means about 1500 depositions.

    35 years, 800 cases

  2. Trucking accident
    Trucking Accidents can result in the worst of injuries. And the regulations can cause the best of lawyers to throw up their hands in confusion. Not us. We know the regulations inside and out. We have gotten superior results (every case is different).

    35 years, 100 cases

Let's face it.

We've been doing this for a long time.  And we love what we do. The lawyers of Shaw Law-- the Indiana Slip and Fall Attorneys.

See us at "."  That's right, we own the cause of action on our website. That's how much we love what we do.

Like Muhammad Ali the boxer famously said, "It's Not Bragging if You Can Back it Up." And with age and experience comes a little bit of "know-how." 

So, here are 5 things we do to help you in the often-confusing path of a personal injury lawsuit:

1.  We Visit the Site Where You Fell

Seems simple, right?  You'd be surprised how many attorneys never get out of their office chairs.

There's something inherently invaluable in seeing the area -- your questions in your mind can make more sense.  In a way, it's metaphysical.

2.  We Ask the Other Side for Real Information Based Upon the Facts of the Case -- We Do Not Just Send Out "Form" Questions

Shaw Law doesn't do that.  We listen to you.  And if we send out written questions to the other side (often called "interrogatories"), we do it to find out real details of what happened.

3.  We Research the Laws -- No, Really -- We Know the Current State of the Law

This one might be academic or obvious -- we research the law in your case.

After all, what's the sense of hiring a lawyer who doesn't "know" the laws, right?

Well, in all fairness, it's a tricky business.  Laws come in many formats -- statute books, regulations, and other cases -- and it can be a difficult, time-consuming task to keep abreast of all the ever-changing laws.

4.  We Use the Latest Techniques to Win Slip and Fall Cases

I don't just mean we try hard (although we do, see below).

But, we have decades of experience that has allowed us to make things happen.  We have extensive contacts with expert witnesses throughout the nation to help establish industry standards and the obligations (standards of care) that businesses and other landowners should be doing to make their property reasonably safe for customers and tenants. We've used all kinds of expert witnesses -- some who measure the "slipperiness" of a floor where water was and some who have years of experience in running hotels or restaurants or stores.  We've had OSHA experts and Risk Management experts and all kinds of others to help you establish the standard of care for a jury to consider.

We've also kept up with our continuing legal education through the years.  In fact, in just the prior 3 years, we've attended dozens of hours of seminars from some of the nation's leading lawyers and learned discovery techniques that have helped us win cases and increase the value of those cases.

This includes an evolving area of law known as the Trial Rule 30(b)6 deposition technique -- a method of investigating slip and falls by asking the corporation or business entity to come into a recorded interview and divulge all facts and opinions it currently has or should have.  It's a fascinating technique that has made me a better lawyer.

5.  We Love Our Job and We Love to Win

We love our job.  We love to help you. It's what we live for.

It's personal to me.

We Get You Back on Your Feet.

You've been very very helpful
I've learned quitea bit from you already and I've got a relatively simple question and I was hesitant to bug ya again but put your advice so far has been spot on. If you don't mind ill probably just go ahead and submit another question. I did make a sincere effort to correct a hastily written review of another lawyer from ago but I'm sure & rightfully so, hasn't forgiven me. I'm just worn out and I'm normally to timid to ask for a refill at Denny's, let alone complain but ill remedy it eventually. Thank you

Great guy..!!..who is willing to help you with advice or referral..without a face to face or $$$..Jeffrey Shaw is a rare one...
Jeffrey Shaw in his own time, has been communicating with me about the terrible incompetence and malpractice I have been subjected to, by other takes a special kind of human being to help you, especially when it is one of your own..what I mean is, they all went to law school to become attorneys in their field..they are not affiliated with Jeffrey Shaw, just the fact they are attorney helping you with a problem, caused by an attorney, is rare..what is right, is right..what is wrong, is matter who you are or what field you work in..Jeffrey Shaw had the guts to talk to me about these other attorneys..a few times already here on AVVO..more than the attorney I hired for $125. an hour..then other attorney did respond to my question and told me to take them to court see why I say Jeffrey Shaw has the guts of a ' Good Human Being Attorney'..very rare...

I will definitely hire and recommend Jeff Shaw!
I was in a car accident and had suffered some knee and neck injuries because of the crash. I had lots of troubles trying to settle with the Insurance Company directly, so I decided to get in contact with a law firm. At first I had a bad experience with a PREVIOUS attorney that I had hired at a different place. So I had done lots of research, before hiring Jeff with Shaw Law Office and I cannot describe how satisfied I am about the way him and the Paralegal handled my case. First, the way they handle the clients is top class; they always return phone calls and email messages, even on Saturdays! Jeff is a very professional lawyer who is very honest and knowledgeable. [The paralegal] is also very experienced and reliable. I am very happy with the check he was able to get me from the company, he always returned calls in a timely manner, and kept a close eye on my case at all times! THANK YOU SHAW LAW OFFICE!

Jeff Shaw was helpful and insightful. My wrist was broken after a fall and I did not believe I was at fault. Mr. Shaw guided me through filing a suit in Small Claims Court. I'm not sure I would have been successful without his help because I had only once prior stepped in to a courthouse. It was imperative that my damages be paid, my hospital bills would have been unbearable otherwise.

Personal Injury Expert Who Actually Cares
I hired Attorney Shaw to handle a difficult slip-n-fall case against a typical corporation who denied any fault. He was tough with them and got me the settlement that helped get me back on my feet (literally and figuratively). He returned his calls and was easy to contact. He explained the procedures. I appreciated his honesty. I recommend him to anyone who is injured.
