Scheef & Stone Opens Office in Sherman

By News & Events

Sherman, Texas – After recently opening an office in Marshall, Texas Scheef & Stone, LLP further expands their federal practice by opening a new office in Sherman, Texas.  The firm’s new Sherman office is conveniently located within walking distance to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.  Scheef & Stone attorneys have regularly practiced in the Sherman Division and the addition of the local new office provides additional serviceability.

With the addition of the Sherman office, Scheef & Stone now has offices located in three of seven cities where the Court for the Eastern District is held.  The proximity to federal court strengthens the firm’s federal court practice providing their clients with a path to advocacy and justice on a national scale.  Over the past year Scheef & Stone has also attracted new attorneys with federal clerkship experience in the Eastern District of Texas Court fortifying their federal footprint.

“Almost twenty years ago, Scheef & Stone took a chance on opening an office in Frisco and we think that Sherman presents the same opportunity today,” said John Scheef, co-founding partner at Scheef & Stone.

Scheef & Stone is optimistic with the firm’s recent new growth in opening two offices along with welcoming 13 new attorneys in 2021. The recent expansions open the door for the firm to provide more high-quality sophisticated counsel to businesses across Texas.  Learn more at solidcounsel.com.
