Kevin Shea practiced law for 30 years at the firm his father founded in 1950 before merging that practice with both the Nazette Marner firm and the Nathanson family firm in 2008. Since helping to create Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP, Kevin has continued to focus on helping clients find innovative, effective and economical solutions to their legal needs.
Kevin’s practice is informed by an educational background in business administration as well as law. He concentrates his practice primarily in the areas of business and transactional law, probate law, and real estate law.
Kevin’s approach to problem-solving involves working with clients to understand their goals, concerns, and resources. He believes that there is always more than one way to approach an issue. When possible, Kevin assists clients to resolve problems outside the litigation process, avoiding unnecessary expense. Many clients find that alternative dispute resolution not only controls legal costs, but results in a more satisfactory outcome.
Flexibility is a hallmark of Kevin’s legal practice; he finds that if one allows oneself to become locked into a certain way of thinking or operating, it limits one’s ability to reach the best solution. He gets great satisfaction out of working collaboratively and creatively with his clients to advance their goals.
