Courtney Shaw represents employers and carriers as part of SBSB Eastham’s Defense Base Act practice. Courtney developed an interest in the law and how it affects our daily lives while still a child. After taking an employment law course as part of her undergraduate studies, Courtney was convinced she wanted to become an attorney.

A passionate advocate for her clients and their issues, Courtney often wears many hats as a case works its way through the legal process. She’s a skilled researcher and writer, an able litigator who crafts strategy with her clients’ long-term goals in mind. She sees her job as going beyond the typical role of a counselor and works to ease the stress that can often accompany complex legal matters.

Courtney received her J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law. Before that, she attended Sam Houston State University, where she studied general business administration. Outside the office, she enjoys reading as well as spending time with her dogs and her family.
