Growing up in Marietta, Georgia, Shea Schulman knew from a young age he wanted to be a lawyer. Advocating for causes, taking a stand, and speaking in public came naturally to him. He excelled on the debate team at Lassiter High School, where his coach would become a big influence in Shea’s decision to pursue a career in law.
Shea continued his studies at the University of Georgia and Emory Law. It wasn’t long before he was front-and-center, representing clients in the courtroom. Shea knew he had made the right decision to become a personal injury attorney immediately after his first jury trial, just a few months after he graduated from law school. Winning that early case remains one of his proudest achievements, and he has been successfully negotiating settlements and appealing to juries on behalf of clients ever since.
