Overview

Shea Hasenauer helps citizens and businesses use wisdom to discern the most effective outcomes for their legal needs.  His calm, joyful presence as well as great fortitude and passion for the truth have been effective in both federal and state courts and non-litigation needs.  He is known for his clear writing style, deep research, desire for efficiency, and presenting legal issues as easy to understand for citizens and courts.

Recruited by the powerhouse Cornell University wrestling program, Shea was on the Dean’s List every semester before enrolling at the Ave Maria School of Law where he received excellent legal formation and was given the school’s top honor: The Mary Queen of Lawyers Award.  He has been blessed to work for two judges: Justice Tom Parker of the Alabama Supreme Court and Judge Douglas Frazier of the U.S. Middle District of Florida.

Following law school, the Holy See’s Mission to the United Nations invited Shea to assist in New York.  Daily interactions with people from every country on earth was formative.  Shea regularly has civil cases in Tennessee and Florida.
