Shelby S. Long
Shelby is an associate in Dunn Carney’s Business Practice group. Shelby’s practice primarily focuses on business counsel, but she has a variety of legal experience in other areas of law such as immigration, personal injury and family law.
Shelby is committed to uplifting small and emerging businesses while connecting with local communities. She graduated from Lewis and Clark Law School as an active member of the Business Law Society, an Associate Editor of the Environmental Law Review, and a Student Director for the Advanced Enhancement Program. While attending Lewis and Clark Law School, Shelby interned at the Small Business Legal Clinic and Western Resources Legal Center, where she advised low-income and emerging businesses on business planning and practice. At the Western Resources Legal Center, she was introduced the Dunn Carney’s Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Team and decided to pursue the 2021 Summer Associate Program at Dunn Carney.
Shelby previously was a Judicial Extern to the Honorable John Acosta at the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, and Appellate Judge Darleen Ortega at the Oregon Court of Appeals. As a research assistant to Lewis and Clark Professor Susan Mandiberg, Shelby researched the criminal discovery process in all 50 states. Her diverse background in multiple sectors of law supports her comprehensive approach to business transactions and counsel.
When she is not at work, Shelby enjoys spending time with friends at local and family-owned restaurants in the Portland area. A lifetime soccer player, you can catch Shelby at a Thorns or Timbers game on the weekend, or at a local art studio diving into her newfound interest in ceramics.
