Welcome to Campbell Shatley. We provide a full array of legal services with an emphasis on quality, efficient representation for our clients.

Firm History

In 2009, Chris Campbell and Dean Shatley founded Campbell Shatley primarily as a boutique firm focusing on educational law. Building on the knowledge and skills of Chad Donnahoo and John Henning, Jr., the firm expanded its client base both inside and outside the area of public education, including municipal law, real estate, and business corporation formation and governance.  With the experience and talents of Walt Currie, who is Of Counsel with the firm, Campbell Shatley provides its clients with the benefit of a lifetime of knowledge and success in the law.

Our attorneys are resourceful problem solvers with an expansive knowledge base and years of experience in employment law, litigation and institutional representation.  From our first day, our firm represented over 30 public and private educational institutions. Since then, we have rapidly expanded our practice areas in order to serve a broader client base needing the specific skills and talents we offer.
