Review Shawn Haff
  • Possession charge dropped

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Colton

    Hired attorney

    I was facing jail time because of a probation violation. The p.o. wanted me to do ten days downtown and the judge was very hostile. Shawn boldly defended me and told the judge the p.o.'s request was outrageous.  Thanks to Shawn's efforts, I walked out of court a free man with no jail time. I would definitely recommend hiring Shawn! Thanks again!

    Shawn was a very knowledgeable and impressive attorney in my case! This was a first offense and Shawn was able to work out a deal to avoid the charge going on my record. Shawn walked me through the process and explained everything very thoroughly! I would and do recommend him highly!

    I would (and do whenever the opportunity presents itself) recommend Shawn to anyone in a bind! Not only did he represent me in a professional manner, he truly treated me like a valuable human being when many other people didn't. He was always kind and helpful...he even answered my calls and texts on the weekends and after hours. If he hadn't fought so hard from me I would be spending time in jail. Truly a great attorney and all around person!

    I found Shawn online while looking for criminal defense lawyers on a misdemeanor possession charge. This being my first offense, I was deeply concerned about my career being destroyed. Shawn was able to negotiate a diversion program which saved my career at a fragile time. I am deeply grateful for his expert advice and excellent legal practice. He comes highly recommended.

  • Awesome Criminal Defense Lawyer for Kent, Ottawa, Allegan Counties & all of West Michigan

    Hired attorney

    I've had the privilege of working with Shawn for several years with his criminal defense legal practice in West Michigan. Shawn is a tremendously competent criminal defense attorney representing hundreds of clients throughout all of Western Michigan. I admire him for his honesty, ethics and a high level of personal integrity. But most of all, I especially appreciate his concern for protecting average citizens from zealous prosecutors and sloppy law enforcement investigators. When people get caught up in our scary, heavy-handed legal system, you need somebody like Shawn Haff that you know is going to defend you, and really cares as much as I know Shawn does.

    Hired attorney

    I was referred to Shawn by another lawyer and I'm glad I hired him to represent me. Shawn is honest and caring. Shawn worked hard and aggressive on my difficult case. He got my felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor charge. No jail time or probation. When I didn't believe in myself Shawn gave me hope. Thanks Shawn now I can move forward in life. Shawn is the best!!!!!!!!!

  • An honest review of Mr. Haff

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    After being arrested for 3rd degree retail fraud, I made numerous calls to attorneys for legal advice. It wasn't until I had spoken with Mr. Haff that I finally felt more in control of the situation and felt respected.

    Society will have you believe that lawyers are sharks and will try to trick you at every corner if you aren't careful. Mr. Haff defied every stereo type possible. He was kind and understanding and was willing to work with me--something I did not find in the nine other lawyers I contacted. I was hesitant to obtain legal council because I thought I could not afford it, and wasn't sure there was anything a lawyer could do for me. If you are on the fence about hiring or obtaining a lawyer, then you really do need one. Having a lawyer means you aren't fighting for yourself on your own. It means there is someone who will be sitting next to you at court, and someone who you can ask all of the middle of the night questions that pop into your head. Family is great. But there is no substitute for someone who has gone to law school and knows the ins and outs of the system and can tell you what to expect.

    If you are in the Grand Rapids area and have been charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense attorney, and I highly recommend you consult with Mr. Haff before hiring anyone else. With Mr. Haff you will get an experienced, down to earth man, who will look out for your best interest. He is very professional, but personable, and isn't someone who will show up to court with sucker in his mouth. Mr. Haff has assisted me at every stop in the road, and hasn't stopped looking out for me.

    Like you are, I read all of these reviews before calling Mr. Haff. I wasn't sure that I would have the same great experience that others had, and to be honest I thought they were inflated, but please listen to me when I say, every word of this is true. Do yourself a favor and call or email him. You don't have anything to loose by doing so, but you might have a lot to gain.

    I wish you all the luck on whatever your situation is and hope this has helped you.

    If you're looking for an awesome, trustworthy, honest lawyer, look no further! Shawn is awesome at what he does. I was facing a retail fraud charge that could have jeopardized my career. Shawn was able to work aggressively with the judge in Granville, Mi and got my charge dropped to disorderly conduct! He was very honest with me from the beginning and I appreciate his hard work! Thanks again Shawn

    Sean filled in for my original lawyer at a time when I greatly needed representation. My original lawyer had gone to the hospital for an emergency surgery and ended up having blood clots and was no longer able to be in the court room with me during my sentencing. Shawn is professional he was there early he went over all the paperwork with me and even spend a little bit of time getting to know me so that he could represent me fairly in front of the judge. He did a wonderful job representing me and it only showed meeting one time was him that he is a genuine guy he gets to know his clients and he does what it takes for each individual client I'm thankful he was there to stand in for my lawyer when I really needed someone. I recommend him for anyone looking for a lawyer to represent them in a DWI/ OWI case.

    Shawn James Haff’s response: “The client who Attorney Haff represented in this review was my client. I was unable to be there for her due to emergency surgery. I knew Shawn was the very best person to step in for me and not only did he give top-notch service, he did not even charge for his time. This should tell you what kind of person this attorney really is. I absolutely agree with this client. Thank you Shawn! I owe you!”
