Attorney Profile

Michael W. Shelton is a founding partner of O’Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin. He represents clients throughout the nation but particularly in Missouri in cases of personal injury, including premises liability, dog bites, slips and falls, workers’ compensation and auto and trucking accidents. During his time at the firm, he has also aided in the firm’s pharmaceutical litigation cases.

A cum laude graduate of Arizona State University, he earned his Juris Doctor in 1995 from St. Louis University School of Law. Mr. Shelton then worked for the city of St. Louis as an assistant circuit attorney, where in three years he tried 15 jury trials and over 50 bench trials. His additional past work experience includes civil defense, insurance defense and a term where he worked with the grand Jury. After 18 years as the Brentwood prosecuting attorney and eight years as the prosecuting attorney for the village of Marlborough, he is now admitted to practice in the state of Missouri, and for his commitment to legal ethics and professional accomplishments, he earned the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.

With a passion for defending the rights of the injured, Mr. Shelton has obtained millions of dollars in settlements for his clients. They include a $1.25 million settlement against a drunk driver, a $3.9 million settlement for a young woman killed by a truck driver and an almost $1 million resolution for a mother killed by a garbage truck.

Mr. Shelton has a deep understanding of the challenges that the injured face and is determined to protect their best interests. Dedicated and persevering, he will not stop until the wrongfully injured have the compensation needed to heal and recover properly.
