Mr. Shelton’s practice is concentrated primarily in the area of commercial real estate transactional work including acquisition, sale, lending, leasing, brokerage, title, survey, development, land use, environmental compliance and permitting as well as business law including formation of entities and related agreements. In addition to his legal skills, Mr. Shelton’s “real world” business experience in commercial sales and marketing, equipment leasing and commercial real estate, acquired prior to embarking on his legal career, brings a valuable level of business acumen to the firm. As a result, he is able to comprehend, distill and counsel clients on the legal issues inherent in both real estate and business transactions. As an active member of the community in both civic and professional organizations, Mr. Shelton served for six years on the Zoning Board of Appeals for Rocky Hill and served as the Chairman of the Rocky Hill Economic Development Commission for four years. He has been a frequent lecturer on topics within his areas of expertise, and has volunteered his time and services since 2001 as a member of the board of The New England Cognitive Center, Inc.; formerly serving as its President and Chairman of the Board.
