Endorse Marc
Litigation Attorney | Sep 18
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I know Mr. Shea because he was the opposing counsel on a case. When I am not able to take a case, Mr. Shea is one of the few attorneys that I would refer someone to. That says a lot because we were adversaries. Here are the qualities that stood out from my experience with Mr. Shea: 1. He's experienced. 2. He's a fighter. 3. He never quits. 4. He's a hard worker. 5. He's always prepared—especially for trial. 6. He always finished his work on time—and mostly earlier than the due date. 7. He is driven to win. In my opinion, Mr. Shea is one of the best attorneys in the Bay Area."
Business Attorney | Jul 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Shea is a very down to earth, honest and trustworthy individual who I have had the honor to know the entirety of my professional career. Not only does Mr. Shea well represent his business clients with distinction, but does so affordably and with real sensitivity to their long-term needs and immediate time sensitivities. I highly recommend Attorney Shea for your business' legal needs."
Litigation Attorney | Jun 25

His firm is very professional, knowledgeable and ethical. I would highly recommend Marc and his firm to anyone in need of a litigation attorney"
