Today ends 2019 and, in a few days, Shelton | McKean will celebrate its third anniversary. One of my closest friends in this industry told me in 2017: “we’ll have to see how you’re doing after three years.”
Ten brave souls followed my partner and I as we staked our future upon our reputation for hard work and excellence. Within days, our clients followed and a new law firm was born.
So, how are we doing after three years?
Shelton | McKean now employs 43 people representing a nearly 350% growth commensurate with an 87% increase in client base and 250% increase in opportunity from our clients.
Edith Pierce wrote: “As we open the book, its pages are blank. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter ‘New Year’s Day.’ The words are for us to write.”
My words will be of gratitude to our clients and humble thanks to the entire staff of Shelton | McKean.
As we begin a fresh decade, join me in raising a toast to auld lang syne so we may write the next chapter that I hope continues as one of success and prosperity.
May that same prosperity and success extend to all of you and your families.
