I THINK HE SHOULD NOT BE REINSTATED BECAUSE HOW HE TOOK MONEY FROM CLIENTS ON A LAWSUITS CASES.HE ALSO HELP OTHER ATTORNREY'S TO DO THE SAME THING BECAUSE
NOW PEOPLES CAN'T TRUST ATTORNERY'S TO WORK ON CASES FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY
WILL STILL AND LIE TO THEM. SO I DON'T THINK HE NEED TO REINSTATED.

Maybe you don't understand how contigency works. If you hire a lawyer to handle a lawsuit for you and you are not charged upfront and if you win the lawsuit the lawyer does get a percentage. If you don't win or awarded any money from the lawsuit then the lawyer would not receive any money either. So, who is at more risk here, you or the lawyer?

Thank you for clearing that up for most people who don't know how contigency works. The lawyers are making more of a gamble than the clients and doing most of the work. There is no guarantee that all lawsuits will be settled and monies awarded, sometimes people will actually have to pay the defendants for filing frivolous lawsuits. I'm not a lawyer but I'm a friend of Mr. Shelton's and I'm not saying this because I know him personally, I'm saying this because he has proved to me that he was/is the best damn lawyer especially when he was here in Waynesboro. I trusted him more for that because he didn't have any "ties" to anybody from around here so he couldn't be swayed, paid or corrupted like some of the others.

Shelton is a sorry deadbeat. He skipped town in the middle of the night and didn't pay the people he hired. The only person he paid was old pill head Cristy Hollifield and she was screwing him.

Mr Shelton is a lawyer so what can you expect. A lawyer can one word in the English language and interrprut it over 5000 different ways and never reveal the truth. So no one will every know the truth. No he was not the best lawyer in Wayne county but he was definetely a honor to the oppuation. It is who puts on the best show in Court that is a good lawyer not the one that tells the truth. Did'nt you know that all attorneys will go out to eat or drink together after a long trial because it all a show for the clients. Get your head out the sand and leave Mr. Shelton alone

Mr. Shelton does not need to come back to wayne County since he left with so many people money and did not defend them. Also, Why would the anyone want to comdemn the man so hard. If he is reformed then the bar should conform him. " Let no attorney without sin cast the first stone".

If ignorance is bliss, then you should be the happiest man in the world! If this is who I think it is, you are just sore because people were tired of your antics and childish ways. You were just a charity case and it sounds like years later you are still bitter, get over it and get on with your pitiful excuse for a life! Stop making slandering comments and accustions, because you of all people can't judge anyone!
