About Me

In addition to running my law practice I have 2 children at home who keep me busy and constantly entertained in my time away from the office.  I am always learning new lessons from my children and find that there is nothing more humbling or any higher honor than being a parent. We make the most of short weekend trips, evenings together, going to museums, the zoo and other family friendly events.

  • Sara A Swiren

    DeShon is an amazing attorney. She is honest, intelligent, diligent, hard working, and extremely caring. She is a zealous advocate for her clients, while maintaining the respect of the opposing counsel, experts, and the judiciary. I have had the pleasure of working against DeShon in several highly contentious cases, as well as with DeShon as a co-worker. She serves her clients well and consistently strives to raise the level of practice in her field.
