About Shaheen & Gordon, P.A

Solving Legal Challenges Since 1981

Since our beginning nearly 40 years ago, Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. has grown to become a robust full-service law firm assisting clients with nearly any kind of legal matter in New Hampshire and Maine.

Our journey toward attaining this level of growth can be traced back to when founders Bill Shaheen and Steve Gordon met in 1977. Steve was interviewing with Bill to become a trial lawyer for the U.S. Attorney's office. When he got the job, the pair constantly prosecuted a backlog of cases with two other federal prosecutors for nearly four years. In 1981, Steve left the U.S. Attorney's office and founded what would eventually become Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. At that time, however, it was a pair of very small offices each in Dover and Concord, New Hampshire known as Shaheen Cappiello Stein & Gordon. For much of the firm's early history, the plan was to work hard for clients and take almost any case that came through the door.

While some of the firm's early founding partners parted ways with Steve and Bill during the latter half of the 1990s, the pair stuck together. The firm was representing Honda of America across the country at the time, which brought in millions of dollars of revenue. It was at this time that the firm really began to mold into a shape that's recognizable today.

Throughout their professional and personal relationship, Steve and Bill have often regarded each other as close friends, if not brothers. While this is more or less the mortar of the firm's success, the bricks are their love for practicing law and doing their part to shape the country into a more perfect union. These values are reflected in the partners who would join Bill and Steve in the future, as well as the attorneys they would hire to help them advocate for clients in New Hampshire and Maine.
