Instructor: Maine Shafer, Bradford and Company, Inc.

Maine Shafer, J.D. has more than 16 years' experience as a professional speaker delivering tax reduction strategies on behalf of Bradford and Company, Inc.

His tax education continued during his clerkship with the Chief Judge of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and while working as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of New Mexico.
