We’re committed to providing excellent service and results.

Welcome to Shumway Van.

The law firm of Shumway Van was founded by attorneys Michael C. Van and Douglas J. Shumway in 2008 in response to business owners and friends expressing concerns about not being able to afford the large firms they worked with for years because those law firms were still charging as though the economy was strong even though the Great Recession had decimated the profits of many businesses and dramatically impacted many employees of those businesses.


The goal of the founding partners was to provide clients with exceptional “big firm” results for a reasonable “small firm” price and thereby ensure that our clients remain viable to help the economy recover. To this day, each attorney at our law firm remains committed to serving our clients in the same unwavering manner.

Words from our clients.

I have no hesitation with recommending Mr. Michael Van of Shumway Van. He represented my husband and me regarding a negotiation with an energy extraction company. He explained our options thoroughly, leaving the decision to us.

Clay Alger who helped us out with immigration paperwork was awesome and very thorough. He sat with us twice and went through all the paper work and explained all the nuances with the changes that recently occurred. Very patient detailed and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend him and Shumway Van for legal work.

Review for Clay Alger in Immigration

I have used Douglas and his firm for many different personal and business problems that I have had over the past 4 years. I really feel Douglas cares about me as a person and wants the best for me and my business. I highly recommend Douglas.

Travis helped me with my divorce and can I just say he's an expert, he made sure I knew all the rules and gave explanations that were easy to understand about the entire process. Things moved quickly and he was efficient. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer.
