Charlotte, NC 28207




Shelby Gilmer is an associate attorney who practices in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, construction law, contract law, and civil rights litigation.

Shelby graduated cum laude from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2023. While attending law school, she was an active member of the Moot Court Board competing in multiple competitions and winning the award for Best Oralist in a national constitutional law moot court competition. She also received several Dean Suzanne Reynolds Awards for earning the top grade in her class, including in legal research and legal writing.

Before joining DeVore, Acton, & Stafford as an attorney in 2023, Shelby gained valuable experience first as a criminal defense legal assistant and then as a civil litigation legal assistant in both government and private practice. Her early professional background working in vastly different environments equipped her with a unique perspective and an ability to adapt to the differing needs and goals of her clients.

When not practicing law, she enjoys reading books that are not related to the law and spending time with her American Staffordshire, Red, and her cat, Peach.
