Demanding Change And Championing Justice - One Case at a Time

Many injury-producing events that could have been avoided by using preventative actions, precautions, or adequate due care occur because of negligence, human error, misconduct, or irresponsibility. In some cases, these events are caused by gross negligence, greed, recklessness, or complete corporate oversight. Many clients experience fear and frustration, and are left reeling with confusion about how to deal with their situation. We can help.

In 2017 the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) identified accidents as the 3rd leading cause of death for Vermont residents. Vermont was also ranked 18th nationwide as one of the top states with fatal accidents.

Our Vermont and New Hampshire personal injury lawyers do everything possible to make sure all liable parties are held financially and legally responsible for the injuries, distress, grief, and damages you have suffered. Through our experienced representation, we aim to allow you to begin living life whole again with enhanced dignity.

At Shillen Mackall & Seldon Law Office we believe that taking legal action is not just about pursuing an action in court---It is about holding steadfast to our commitment as watchdogs of the law and society in general. Every case we win helps make the community and, by extension, the public at large a better and safer place for all.
