Steven Irving Shaw

Sole Practitioner
Healdsburg, California

Steven Shaw was admitted to the California State Bar in 2001 and has devoted his legal career to working on behalf of people with disabilities who are applying for Social Security or other public benefits.

He gained recognition for his extensive knowledge and patient communication style during the ten years he provided legal services at a non-profit agency serving people with disabilities in Santa Rosa,

One area of Social Security law that Steven finds particularly gratifying is working on behalf of children with disabilities. Many attorneys don't take these cases because the Social Security regulations are more complex than those for adult cases.

2016 has seen the launch of his solo practice serving Sonoma, Marin, Lake and Mendocino counties, as well as the entire north bay area including the central valley.

"The best judges of my skills are the people who have hired me to handle their Social Security claims. Check out the Testimonials page of my website to read over two dozen unedited client testimonials."
