Why I Do What I Do: “In a world that has become very negative, I try to make a positive difference anywhere that I can. At Shankle Law Firm, I get to work with such a strong group of people to help do what is right. We help make a difference in someone’s life by teaching them their rights and being there for them along the way. Our goal is to help them realize that someone cares for them and is looking out for their best interests. Just knowing we are making a positive difference, that’s what it’s all about.”
