Ed Shaw Law No Nonsense Legal Advice

Local Solutions For Local Problems

Your Hometown Law Firm

When facing legal challenges, it’s important to find an attorney you can trust. At Ed Shaw Law, we have built our reputation on providing practical, accessible legal guidance for our neighbors in Brainerd, St. Cloud and surrounding communities.

We are deeply invested in our communities. In 2023, our founding attorney, Ed Shaw, was named a North Star Lawyer by the Minnesota State Bar Association, one of only 685 attorneys to receive the award for pro bono service. We understand you are coming to us because you need help, and we take pride in helping neighbors solve their legal problems.

We know how to get results in our cases, because we know how to present a detailed case on our client’s behalf. We are well-connected with the judges and other lawyers in our legal communities, and we understand the way things actually work around here. This allows us to give you straightforward, no-nonsense legal advice. We’re not going to tell you what you want to hear — we’re going to tell you what you need to know to move forward productively.
