LET MY EXPERIENCE WORK FOR YOU
My name is Francis Jerome Shea. I have been practicing both Federal and
State law for the past three decades. Before that I was a financial
analyst with a major American automobile manufacturer and an auditor
with a National CPA firm. From this experience I bring to the

defend Capital crimes cases.
No matter how complex, my firm has successfully completed hundreds
of Immigration cases, representing family and investment petitions
to major asylum and deportation hearings before the Immigration
Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals.

of the charges against you.
