Why A Blog? Why Now? by Robin Shellow
If anyone is following this, you will notice a burst of posts in the first week corresponding with my law office’s recent decision to create a blog located on our website at www.theshellowgroup.com. My staff and I will continue to add content when the opportunity permits and topics of interest or urgency arise.
For 29 years, I have been a criminal lawyer based in Milwaukee representing persons who have run afoul of the law. For 40 years, I have been a writer. We all waste a lot of time “in between”–charging our Fitbits, finishing one project and starting another, cleaning the garage, and all manner of myriad tasks which flesh out our days. Invariably, it is during the time “in between” where my words flow easily and with a degree of clarity that comes when I am not hyper-focused. I also know that Michael Danahey, my aide-de-camp for over a decade, will revise and edit every post that we write. Oftentimes, posts will be tested against the tireless mind of my father, James Shellow—the best lawyer I know and an estimable writer in his own right–and located on his own web page at www.shellowandshellow.com before being mirrored on The Shellow Group blog you are presently reading. Additionally, other stake-holders and fellow travelers who have suggestions may make occasional contributions as well.
Read, comment, share, and stay tuned.

When foreign governments get into the DNC email server it is called hacking. Hacking is writing a program that allows outside users into your private domain—just another uninvited dinner guest at your table. When the Department of Justice uses RoundUp, One Swarm and a host...Read More
The officer testified that there was a large amount of marijuana throughout the passenger compartment of the vehicle. While searching my mental files for an image which could convey to a jury the magnitude of the lie that thirteen one hundredths of a gram was...Read More
