Shawn worked out a great plea deal with district prosecuting attorney reducing felony charges to misdemeanors. Made sure I understood how Judge would talk, approach, and sentence case before hand. although a touch more insight as how to respond to judges questions may have been useful. Very grateful and thankful for the desired outcome was achieved.

I found Mr. Haff thru this website and called. I was facin a retail fraud and was pretty messed up over it. Mr. Haff didn't judge me for my mistake made in impluse and treated me real good. He got my case thrown out becuz of a technicality the store people did. I don't think all attorney's would of been able to see that OR believed me. The only negative I have with Mr. Haff was he is hard to read with his body language. lol. We played phone tag a few times but he ALWAYS got back with me. Thank you Mr. Haff!

Shawn is a class act who works hard, cares for his clients and gets results at a great price. I could have paid thousands of dollars more for a felony case, but I'm glad I called Shawn! He told me what his game plan was for my case and then executed it! I would use him again and recommend him to anyone in criminal trouble!

I was facing a possession of marijuana charge and Shawn took the case to trial and he got the case thrown out on a directed verdict! How many lawyers can say they win cases on directed verdict? He always returned my calls quickly and never left me hanging regarding my case. I will refer him to all my friends if I ever need another lawyer.

Thank you Shawn Haff for your work on my criminal case! Shawn told me he thought we could win the case when three other lawyers in town told me I would be found guilty if we went to trial. Shawn refused to take a plea deal and at jury trial we won! It was such a great feeling hearing "Not" guilty" and walking out of court a free man

Shawn told me he thought we would win this case right away and time proved him right! Thanks to his hard work I don't have a criminal record!

I called another local attorney in the Grand Rapids area and he wanted a huge retainer up front on a serious criminal charge that I was facing. I couldn't get this attorney to answer his phone and he left me in the dark. I hired Shawn and he always returned my calls and kept me informed about what was going on regarding my case. It's hard to believe, but a phone call does go a long ways and Shawn always returned my numerous calls promptly. He also charged me a much fairer rate and I liked the results I got. I've faced several criminal charges before so I've dealt with many criminal defense lawyers. Shawn was the best one I had!

I was facing a felony charge of parental kidnapping! Shawn told me the charge was bogus and that he would file a motion to dismiss the criminal charges. He filed the motion and the prosecutor dismissed the charges the day of the hearing.

Shawn helped me out when I was in deep trouble because of a pending criminal charge. I was facing up to ten years in prison but Shawn was able to get the charge dropped down to a 90 day misdeamenor. His rates were reasonable as well. If you are in a bind, he's a great guy to have on your side.

Shawn is a great gentleman and a professional. He really cared about me and the criminal charges I was facing. Because of his work, I was able to get my criminal charges dismissed. He retainer was very low compared to most of the big firms in Grand Rapids or other lawyers for that matter who charge an arm and a leg for service that certainly is very personal or professional.

I have had to deal with many lawyers over the years. Shawn Haff treated me with respect and dignity. He always kept me informed of what was going on in my case and I was pleased with the results. His rates are reasonable compared to other lawyers I had to deal with.

Shawn handled a child custody case for us. He always returned my phone call to him prompty. He never charged us extra money for all the phone calls I made to him. He is willing to visit you are your house if you need him to come to you. He was very friendly and did more work for less money than another attorney I had hired for the same kind of work before.
