Welcome Clients of
Shafer Law Group

Shafer Law Group and CunninghamLegal

With the passing of Attorney David A. Shafer, of Shafer Law Group, CunninghamLegal has picked up the torch for providing assistance to Mr. Shafer’s clients. CunninghamLegal is a dynamic, mid-size firm with a diverse clientele and a wide range of practice areas. CunninghamLegal is headquartered in Auburn, California, and features offices across the state.

When founding attorney David A. Shafer passed away on January 1, 2024, his practice and clients were entrusted to our firm. It is with great honor and a profound sense of responsibility that we assume the stewardship of his legal practice and care of his clients.

Mr. Shafer was a valued member of the Auburn legal community, leading Shafer Law Group with a focus on business and corporate law, real estate transactions, estate planning, and trust administration.  We know it is not easy losing a trusted advisor, but as we embark on this new journey, we pledge to uphold the highest standards of legal services and to provide you with a seamless transition and unparalleled care.

About CunninghamLegal

CunninghamLegal is a well-established law firm with a diverse client base that includes individuals, families, real estate investors, and business owners. Our team of skilled attorneys collaboratively works to provide our clients with peace of mind in matters involving business and corporate law, estate planning, trust administration, real estate transactions, income tax planning, and asset protection.

You will find that we are a truly dynamic, forward-thinking firm: proudly “medium-sized” and stable, with offices throughout California: big enough to handle anything, but small enough to know you personally.

Our primary objective is to safeguard the interests of our clients and help them achieve their goals in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We also emphasize client education, and offer popular legal webinars, blogs, workshops, and critical updates through our newsletter.
