I had a felony case in dekalb county in 2012 and had a public defender representing me. I got the impression that the pd didn't care about my case at all and felt very uncomfortable. One of my friends gave me Shawn's info and I'm glad I hired him. He took over my case and owned it! Like I said he makes this stuff look easy and he got two of my charges dismissed and the other one got dropped to a misdemeaner and I did diversion. Shawn's not cheap but he's worth the money I spent. Every penny.

I was terrified of the divorce process and custody negotiation. Shawn was patient and reassuring. We got everything we wanted in the end. What a relief!

We hired Shawn Bugbee to handle our custody case in Cobb County. He took great care of us and our case and went above and beyond what we expected of him.
I can't say enough good stuff about Shawn, he was honest and diligent and got the job done right with us ending up with primary custody of the kids.

Mr. Bugbee took on a difficult case for my family. His expertise and experience in Juvenile Law was invaluable as he helped us to navigate and understand the the many facets and steps involved in the process and made sure that we stayed informed and had choices. He was very supportive and worked extremely hard to get the best possible outcome for our case. We are very grateful for his kindness and caring manner of practicing law.

I had one of the most complicated divorce cases anyone could imagine. I had everything , every hurdle, every legal maneuver and tactic from my ex-husband because his father was an attorney and he didn't have any legal fees. Mr. Bugbee took on this case better than anyone I could of hoped for. He allowed me to make monthly payments, stayed on top and anticipated every tactic they threw at him. My divorce case ended in 2007 and I ended up with custody of my children, the highest amount of child support I could receive, possession and use of the home (while he incurred the payments), spousal support, and best of all he got the Judge to award me reimbursement of my legal fees. He accomplished this while having a fairly new practice, no permanent legal assistant at the time..he worked very hard. It's been awhile Shawn but I just wanted to let you know I remember the work you did and thank you very much! ... Amy

Mr. Bugbee has represented me on two separate occasions and both times was more than professional, knowledgeable, courteous, as well as an all around enjoyable person to deal with. Both times the outcome was more than favorable resulting in a dismissal of the case and completely clean record. He worked extremely hard in both situations to help me in any way possible and kept me informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Shawn to anyone seeking legal representation or advice, and have done so in the past. Truly only the best things to say about this man.

My ex-wife refused to return my son & daughter after visitation. I called Shawn because he had represented me in the divorce two years ago and did a great job then and he was already familiar with everyone involved. The case was complicated by the fact that my ex was living in Florida.
To make a long story short Shawn was able to get my kids back home to me quickly, and now my ex can only have visitation here locally and only when it's supervised.

We had to report this attorney in order to get our retainer back from him and our legal papers. He took the retainer and never did anything on the case. We eventually just handled the case on our own.

I got accused with assaulting my girlfriend in 2011 and I didn't have any money so I got a public defender. He was nice when I got to talk to him but he didn't seem to get anything done. A coworker told me about Shawn so I emailed him and we worked out a pyament plan. Shawn took the case and got to work on it right away and in just a few months he got me a deal to do anger management and got the case dismissed when I finished it.

He took my case last minute and got the Paulding prosecutor to throw my charges out!
