I was in a motorcycle accident after a moving van pulled out in front of me. I had a severe head injury, broken ribs and broken wrist. I initially hired another firm in Birmingham to handle my case. It was a firm that advertises on every television station, billboards, etc.. My thought was that if I go to a bigger firm in a bigger city such as Birmingham or Huntsville, then I will find a better attorney...right?? Well, I was WRONG!! It didn't take me long to realize that these big firms are “trying to bring in and settle as many cases as they can.” I was simply a “number” to the Birmingham Firm. I met with several attorneys in Gadsden but Mr. Shelnutt made me feel comfortable and it was clear that he knew what he was talking about. I fired the other firm and hired the Shelnutt Law Firm. From the first day, it was obvious that I had made the right decision. They did everything they could to help me and I got a great settlement from the insurance company that was over 2 times what the Birmingham firm had told me my case was worth. Another plus is that their fees were actually a little cheaper than the Birmingham firm. Mr. Shelnutt is definitely in demand and does stay busy and is in court a lot. However, I NEVER felt he was too busy for my case. Also he has a good size staff who are always there to help. They are nice people and he is a good, honest lawyer. You won't go wrong hiring this firm. I can't comment on the other areas of law they practice but I think they also do social security disability claims and criminal defense, divorce and some other areas. I will hire them for any future legal problems.
