When I met Shawn, I had gone through a short sale and a mortgage modification, so my credit score was in the mid 500s. In addition, I had Chase bank calling asking for payment of a second mortgage of over 100,000 from the short sale from a year prior. I was not in any financial shape to either borrow more money to pay off that loan. Shawn put things into perspective for me explaining how I would benefit from filing then as opposed to dragging out payments for another 5-10 years paying a loan on a property I no longer owned.
On top of that, I needed a car because mine continued to strand me, but with my credit score being so low I wasn't eligible for a used auto loan, so I had to buy new. I was approved for a loan at a rate of 13%! I finally ended up filing for bankruptcy in November 2011 after being at the end of my financial rope.
Within a year of filing, my credit score was in the low to mid 600s, and I was able to refinance my car for 3.99%, lowering my payment by almost $100/month and shortening the loan duration by a full year, saving me thousands of dollars in the end!
Just recently, I was approved for another auto loan for 2.99% and my credit score it 678. I'm on my way back to a mid 700 score and being credit worthy once again.
I wish I met Shawn earlier as his advice would have saved me even more money in the long run and gotten me back on my feet sooner. I can't thank him enough and still keep in contact with him for advice on future financial decisions.

Shawn, after reviewing my paperwork, was straight to the point in addressing my situation. He gave me his unbiased perspective, which was my objective. His suggestions help me to make future decisions on the matter at hand.

Shawn Stone and his staff are nothing short of amazing.
I've had every question answered, every phone call returned, and every e-mail replied to.Though I have not worked with many attorneys, Shawn Stone has set the the standard in how I would choose one. The Stone Law Firm made the sense of doom and humiliation associated with filing banckruptcy go away, walking me through all the steps and exploring all the options. I would absolutely use and reccomend Shawn Stone and the Stone Law firm for any financial legal matter.

My case is complex and Mr. Stone immediately grasped the relevant issues. He provided advice and items for action concisely with authority and commiseration. He is my choice for handling my issues after interviewing with 5 other attorneys.
Attorney Stone's fees are fixed and fair and I truly believe he will work diligently to produce the best possible results.

Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting with Shawn Stone to discuss help with my student loans. At first I was skeptical, I believed I was doomed, but after listening to what Shawn had to say, I immediately felt a since of relief. Shawn helped me see the light at the end….

I recently used Shawn Stone for my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Mr. Stone was great to work with and very professional. He really helped me though a difficult time. His assistant Mallory was also great to work with! I'd gladly refer anyone to Shawn Stone!

Shawn and his staff truly made filing my bankruptcy easy. I thought it would be a difficult proces, but Shawn walked me through every step, answered all my questions in a timely manner. He still answers any questions that I have about the bankruptcy as my case comes to a close.

I am so glad to have chosen Shawn. Bankruptcy can be a scary thing, but Shawn made it a simple process. Work with him, get your information on time, be preparred ahead of time and you are smooth sailing. He was informative, comforting, and confident. If he does not have an answer he will get the answer.
When we decided to do a short sale we asked for his advice and gave us a fantastic referral. We then hired him to review our paperwork.
Shawn is responsive. He is a busy guy, i'm sure because of all his referrals. I think he has hired additional staff since our first meeting to assist. Ultimately, he will get back to you.
He is now our go to guy for our legal needs. If he can't do it then he will find someone who can. We appreciate his service. Thanks Shawn

You can't go wrong hiring Shawn to represent you. He is knowledgeable, attentive, and takes pride in his work. Not only does he understand the law, but he is adept at explaining it as well. The law can be very scary for the average person, and I can't tell you how wonderful it was to have someone take that fear away and present me with options to help my situation. I highly recommend this attorney.

Shawn worked with me during an extremely difficult time in my life. He was dependable, knowledgeable and patient. Having worked with other attorneys during my life on different issues, I was pleasantly surprised that he didn't wait until the last minute . . . and ask belated questions of me in court . . . or call at 5:00 am to ask me questions on day of a court appearance.
I couldn't recommend him more highly.
