About me

   Shawn Kollie was born and raised in Portland, Oregon.  Upon graduation from Oregon State University, Shawn attended the University of Oregon School of Law.  During his second year of law school, he began working as a law clerk for Jason Short, primarily on criminal and DUI defense matters. 



   As a third year law student, Shawn interned with the Lane County Public Defender’s Office and upon graduation accepted a position at Short Law Group, PC, (a criminal boutique law firm that specializes in criminal and DUI defense), where he continues to practice law with Jason Short.  Shawn is certified by NHTSA and IACP to conduct field sobriety tests and uses that knowledge to assist his clients in DMV hearings and DUI trials throughout Oregon. 


   Shawn is married and the proud father of twin boys.  He enjoys spending time with his family, outdoor activities, hunting, and shooting.
