Shachtman’s Former Partner Sly James Elected Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri

Shachtman’s former law partner, Sly James, has been elected Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri. Sly James is a wonderful person, who will do an excellent job leading our great City. In 2002, Shachtman joined the Sly James Firm. From 2002 up until June 2010, Sly James and Scott Shachtman worked together on a number of personal injury and wrongful death cases. Shachtman started his own law firm last year and has continued to work on a number of cases with Sly James. The Shachtman Law Firm will continue to work with Sly James as he transitions into his new job as Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri.

Foreclosure Action Stopped by The Shachtman Law Firm

This month the Shachtman Law Firm helped a very nice man and his family stay in their home. They had fallen behind in their mortage, but had the ability to start making payments again. Although they were served with foreclosure papers, we were able to work out a deal with their lender. In the end, our client’s got their loan reinstated and enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday in their own home.

The Shachtman Law Firm Settles Truck Wreck Case for $900,000.00

The Shachtman Law Firm recently settled a truck wreck case for $900,000.00. While driving home from work on 71 Highway our client was rear-ended by a large truck. She suffered a number of injuries and had several surgeries. The money helped pay for her medical bills, lost wages and her future medical care needs.


Cameras at stoplights can help show exactly who was responsible for a wreck. In a recent case, our firm was able to get a copy of the red light camera footage, which helped us prove exactly who caused the wreck. In the end, the footage was very helpful in resolving the dispute with the insurance company.
