BOB HILLIARD AND STEVE SHADOWEN FOUNDED HILLIARD & SHADOWEN IN JANUARY 2012 TO
ACHIEVE A MUTUAL GOAL: ESTABLISH A TEAM
OF EXPERIENCED, RESOLUTE ATTORNEYS
DEDICATED TO THE PURSUIT OF ECONOMIC
AND SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR OUR CLIENTS.
Although the law firm is newly formed, Bob Hilliard's and Steve Shadowen’s partnership began over thirty years ago when they were college roommates and tennis teammates at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. After college, the future partners excelled independently at the profession both friends chose: the law. Over the years, they kept returning to the idea of litigating cases together, finally reaching the “now or never” moment at the beginning of 2012.
Hilliard & Shadowen LLP is a natural extension of the legal work Bob Hilliard and Steve Shadowen had been doing separately for decades. Mr. Hilliard is a relentless advocate who has dedicated his thirty-year career as a trial attorney to representing the powerless against some of the nation’s largest and wealthiest companies. Mr. Shadowen is a scholar and adjunct professor of law who has represented plaintiffs in complex antitrust litigation for more than twenty years. Together, the two attorneys apply their complementary skills and experience to achieve the best possible results for their clients.
