Welcome.  Please take the time to browse this important information about our firm.  We hope that you will contact our office directly, so that we may learn more about how we can assist you.

Shaw & Murphy's main office is located in downtown Ithaca, New York, and our secondary office is located in Trumansburg, New York.  Both offices are located in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes region. 

Founded in 1979, by William R. Shaw, we are a well-established firm and regularly work with individuals, families, businesses, corporations and not-for-profit organizations.  Shaw Law Firm is a general practice law firm that provides professional, knowledgeable, and personal representation. 

Our firm has experience in many different areas of the law and experience working with a diverse client base.  We are a general practice firm with a wide breadth of experience including but not limited to the areas of Adoption, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Business and Commercial Law, Civil Litigation, Civil Rights, Collections and Creditor's Rights, Criminal Defense, Domestic Relations, Estate Administration, Estate Planning, Employment Discrimination, Juvenile Justice (delinquency, PINS), Family Court Matters, Not-for-Profit Corporations, Personal Injury, and Real Estate Law.  Our attorneys have litigation experience in both New York State and Federal Courts.

The attorneys and staff of the Shaw Law Firm pride themselves on our commitment to our clients.  We work to maintain the utmost ethical standards, while fulfilling our clients' needs in a timely and efficient basis.

Our focus is on service to our clients, with personal practical advice, not high volume "boiler plate" processing of forms. We work hard to earn the trust and respect of our clients.  Our lawyers listen to our clients' needs, respond to questions, and keep our clients informed. Our paralegals are experienced and well educated with associate and/or bachelor degrees and decades of professional experience.

Shaw & Murphy's attorneys and staff are committed to the surrounding community and have served as volunteers and on the boards of directors and donated their services to a variety of community organizations. The Shaw Law Firm is also a member of the Downtown Business Partnership and the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce.

While our main office is located in downtown Ithaca, New York, our firm regularly provides services to clients beyond the Ithaca and Tompkins County area including the adjoining and neighboring counties and the nearby towns and cities such as Auburn, Binghamton, Cortland, Elmira, Seneca Falls, Syracuse and Waterloo. 

While our practice is limited to New York State and its State and Federal Courts, our clients' interests encompass the globe and our clients can be found locally, as well as throughout the United States, Canada, and other foreign countries.

We look forward to having the opportunity to assist you with your legal needs.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
