Teri Shugart

I have a sophisticated Silicon Valley business and tax practice, but without the intimidating atmosphere and administrative overhead you might find with other law offices. I pride myself in being client-oriented, approachable and definitely not stuffy.

Most of my clients are local small business owners or real estate investors, many of whom had never used a lawyer before coming to me.

Meet Teri

My husband and I are parents to Carly, an elementary school teacher and recently married to Clinton; Mitchell, a wig designer and a successful drag queen in San Francisco; and Arely, a sophomore in high school and a social media savant.

I invite you to check out my Biography page to learn more about who I am, and to review my Fees and Billing Practices page to see how I’m different from a typical big firm transactional practice. I look forward to meeting you!
