I believe a central part of the practice of law is listening to the needs of the person on the other side of my desk. Unfortunately, it is often the case that otherwise skilled attorneys lose sight of this ‘human element’ in the practice of law. Attorneys are also referred to as ‘Counselors,’ and I take this title seriously in the conduct of my practice. I believe in providing my clients with all possible solutions to their legal issues, then sitting down with them and evaluating what option best suits their needs and desires. Honest and sound legal advice allows clients to make the best decision for themselves.

When not in the office, Mr. Shelton enjoys being outdoors with friends and family. He is married to Jennifer Shelton, a local elementary school principal and they have two young daughters, Laura and Mary. He is also active with his Church Parish at St. John in the Wilderness in Flat Rock, North Carolina
