Tricia Shackelford established Shackelford Law Office, PLLC in January 2005 to serve the needs of the Lexington business and healthcare community. Tricia graduated, cum laude, from the University of Miami School of Law in 1999 and started her legal career at Steel Hector & Davis, one of South Florida's leading business and international law firms. After establishing her qualifications and credentials, Tricia decided it was time to make a move home.

After returning to Lexington in 2001, Tricia spent several years practicing with McBrayer, McGinnis, Leslie & Kirkland, in one of the Commonwealth's premier health care law practices. Tricia has also worked as an associate at Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP and has served as General Counsel for a medical practice management company.

Tricia's record of success has helped the Shackelford Law Office quickly become one of Kentucky's leaders in all fields of law.
