Shawn is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. His work ethic and desire to get the best results for his clients separate him from his peers. When I have clients in Pennsylvania that ask me who I recommend they hire for their criminal defense cases I tell them: Shawn Dorward.
I fully endorse Mr. Doward. He is well thought of in the legal community. He is a skilled litigator and negotiator. You are well-served with him on your side.
Attorney Dorward is a trained in the latest and best DWI defenses. I know that he attend DWI training seminars on a regular basis where he has developed skills rivaling the best DWI defense lawyers in the nation. Attorney Dorward is a part of the leading DWI defense firm in Pennsylvania. Any person in Pennsylvania would be lucky to have Attorney Dorward working on their case.
I endorse this lawyer.
Shawn is a rising star. His style and presence match perfectly with a solid legal mind and combine to make him an attorney in whom clients can be confident and comfortable. His role in the McShane Firm just ensures that he will continue to receive top-notch training and experience that will set him apart from the pack in PA. I happily endorse Shawn's quality work.
What a lawyer. Shawn is an awesome trial attorney. I met Shawn at a training seminar in PA. He had the courage to go first in demonstrating his skills in the Court room. I was in awe. He has the ability to take a complex story and tell it to the jury in a simple and understandable fashion with passion and confidence.
I had the opportunity to see Shawn deliver an opening statement at a recent seminar and find him to be extremely persuasive and skilled trial lawyer. He is a confident and effective speaker. I would recommend him to anyone facing DUI or criminal charges.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Shawn at a seminar on developing the ability to successfully communicate with juries. Shawn has abundant natural skill as a communicator and worked hard to become even better to protect his clients. Shawn has also made the commitment to understand the science behind the tests the police attempt to use in determining who is a drunk driver. So few lawyers make that commitment even though everyone who helps those charged with DWI/DUI should. I strongly endorse Shawn.
I have met Shawn and several very high level seminars and I am very impressed with him. I wish that I had the foresight to try to get all of the training that he has at such an early stage in his career. He is definitely a force to be reckoned with. He works for and is trained by one of the best in the business, Justin McShane.
I recently attending a conference with Mr. Dorward at the Harvard University Law School. Shawn and I were both assigned to have our trial skills evaluated by the nation's best DUI trial lawyers. Shawn was awesome. He is a dynamic trial lawyer, able to adapt to those unexpected circumstances that arise in trial even for the most prepared lawyer (and I know that Shawn thoroughly prepares for trial). I would trust Shawn to represent anyone, even myself, in a DUI trial.
I had the opportunity to meet Shawn at the DUI Defense College at Harvard University during its summer session. Shawn is not only exceptionally bright, he is dedicated to provided the very best legal representation possible for all of his clients. His commitment to the practice of DUI defense shows in his drive to perfect is skills and maximize his clients' chance of obtaining a "not guilty."
On occasion I meet an attorney whom I immediately say to myself, "Wow, this person has it together." I've watched this guy at work. I've seen his natural trial skills and frankly, I left impressed after our sessions at the National College of DUI Defense (Summer Session) which took place at Harvard Law School. Not only is he an excellent attorney, he works for a firm for whom I have a tremendous amount of respect. You won't go wrong using this smart, zealous attorney. He's a top-notch attorney from a top-notch firm.
I endorse this lawyer's work. Shawn, and the other attorneys at The McShane Firm LLC, are committed to providing top-notch defense for all motorists in the unfortunate position of being charged with DUI in Pennsylvania. I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn and the McShane Firm to anyone looking for the best representation in DUI defense.
Shawn and I met at a Drug Recognition Expert seminar his firm sponsered. He and I discussed several complex legal issues involving citizens charged with DUI's in states other than where they are licensed to drive. Shawn is a very knowledgeable attorney who added much to the highly technical discussion. Furthermore, he is surounded by other very talented DUI/DWI Defense lawyers who make up an excellent team. I would most certainly recomend him to anyone accused of DUI. I endorse this lawyer's work.
I met Shawn while attending a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor Course and was very impressed by his drive and desire to provide the best possible defense for his clients. I would recommend Shawn to anyone seeking skilled representation for a DUI offense in the state of Pennsylvania.
I strongly endorse Attorney Dorward. I have had the opportunity to closely observe his work ethic and his dedication to his clients. Unlike far to many DUI/DWI defense attorneys, Attorney Dorward is extremely knowledgeable of his craft, and takes the effort to maintain his skill at the highest level. He works hard for his clients, and it shows in results. I frequently encounter him at advanced training not only in Pennsylvania but throughout the east coast. I unhesitatingly endorse him
Through his association with Justin McShane, I have known Shawn for a couple of years. He first came to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor Course that was given in Atlanta. After that, he has attended several advanced level courses, most recently the Forensic Blood and Urine Laboratory Course in San Diego in May of 2009. He demonstrates all the dedication and commitment a prospective client could want when seeking a fighter for a DUI case. By being part of one of America's top specialty firms handling DUI litigation, he strengthens the McShane team by being able to identify favorable issues and potential winning defenses based on his superior training in the field of "police tactics" and courtroom evidence. What more could you ask of your attorney?
I met Shawn at a high level Forsensics Course in San Diego, California. Shawn tackled the scientific material at the course with enthusiasm and through our conversations showed that he is very committed the Defense of allegedly impaired drivers. Shawn is also a member of the National College for DUI Defense and is very knowledgable in the field of DUI/DWI law.
Shawn and I met at a blood seminar in San Diego. He is a smart and capable attorney who impressed me with his knowledge of blood analysis issues. I would recomend Shawn to anyone accused of DUI.
Shawn, along with his firm, works hard to stay on the cutting edge of the law for the benefit of his clients. Shawn's firm is known for their tenacity in trial and tirelessly working for the best result for his clients. Shawn will work hard to be the best advocate for his clients.
I met Shawn through the National College for DUI defense. We attended the most rigorous DUI blood testing courses in the country together. Very few DUI attorneys could pass the final test, but Shawn shined. When your liberty is on the line, look no further.
I have had the privilege of working with Attorney Dorward for approximately one year. He is extremely knowledgeable and effective. He leaves no stone unturned, attacking the prosecutions case from every angle possible. This strategy leads to great results for his clients. Attorney Dorward excels at developing a strong relationship with clients and keeping them fully informed of the status of their case. I highly recommend Attorney Dorward’s work.
Since arriving at The McShane Firm I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from Attorney Dorward. He is a talented litigator whose professionally aggressive style has garnered outstanding results. Attorney Dorward has countless hours of training and education in virtually all areas of DUI defense. His trial advocacy skills put that knowledge to great use in the courtroom. He is a dedicated and caring attorney who is known for always being over-prepared. I would recommend Attorney Dorward to anyone in need of a top notch criminal defense attorney.
I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known Mr. Dorward for a number of years now and am pleased to say he is one of the attorneys that is vigilantly staying on top of and honing his skills in the DUI field. The laws and technology regarding DUI detection and defense are constantly changing and Mr. Dorward has demonstrated his desire to continue learning by regularly attending local and national DUI seminars. He is a fine attorney.
Shawn has been practicing law for a short time but he has been studying the fine points of criminal litigation for a long period of time. Shawn clerked for Justin McShane while studying for the bar. During that time, Shawn was involved in numerous cases and helped Attorney McShane prepare for trial. While learning from the best, Shawn has been busy developing his own style and finding his own voice. He is a charismatic lawyer and a skilled trial attorney. His experience is vast in comparison to his time in practice and in fact, he already has more trial experience than many attorneys with 10+ years of experience. If you are considering retaining Shawn you should have absolute confidence in his abilities and commitment to your case.
Those who would look at Attorney Dorward's chronological age or number years in practice might make the very foolish mistake of taking him lightly. Well that would be a mistake of biblical proportions. For years, Attorney Dorward personally served as my law clerk developing and sharpening his trial skills. He has more training in the areas of law that he practices than anyone around the local area. If you are an adversary and you sleep on him, it will be like a Pearl Harbor event in your life. If you are an existing or potential new client, then you would be foolish to not use him to help you.
