As the founder of Shaw Law, Cyrus Shaw believes there is only one thing that the firm should be focused on – getting the best possible results for clients. This starts from the initial client interview, where a rapport and trust needs to be established. It is common for new client intake to be limited to one a day, so as much time as needed can be spent with the new client. Each client is a person, not a file. Each client has their own story. A law firm where clients become like family is what he strives for. This means they can call and speak to an attorney whenever they like. A client should feel welcome enough to stop by the office at anytime they like. In the future, a client should feel comfortable and confident to refer a friend or family member to Shaw Law when in need of legal representation.
