About me

I grew up in Pittsburgh, having attended Montour High School and the University of Pittsburgh.   I have 3 boys and live in the North Hills.   When not in the office, you might see me at my kids' baseball, hockey or wrestling practices.

Given my family activities, I find that a good time to meet with clients is Sunday evenings if you can't fit in a weekday appointment.   Call me and I'd be more than happy to meet with you.

  • Michael Bruce Greenstein

    I am both a colleague and a client. I'm used to being the one *behind* the desk telling people what they need to know to get the most out of their situations, but needing assistance in a field of law outside of my area of practice gave me a useful "how the other half lives" perspective. I am pleased to be able to say that Shawn Wright has "the stuff." I got from him exactly what I try to deliver to my own clients: a context in which to understand the decisions I must make, a clear "to do" list, a good sense of the timing for next steps, and answers to my questions. I gladly endorse him.
