I hired Damon in 2011. He resolved my case quickly and the outcome was exactly what I was hoping for. His experience was a calming influence for me in a difficult situation. I was very happy with his understanding of the facts, responsiveness, and strategy to address each issue. He is very smart and it showed when cutting through the BS. I was very happy with Damon and would highly recommend him.

In a case where it felt like the Dept of Licensing was overbearing and unfair, Damon was able to assert a position that portrayed my side in a favorable and credible light. Damon used both evidence and process to my favor, and his involvement as an activist attorney and judge provides a balanced and informed approached to any defense. I highly recommend his counsel.

Damon Shadid has provided me legal assistance in the realms of employment law as well as real estate contracts. Several years ago, I sought his advice on an employment contract, and found him extremely approachable, honest, and understanding. My concerns were always addressed. He was able to distill complex legal language into clear and concise concepts and clarified my situation. I was so pleased with his performance , that I engaged him in some real estate contracts as well. I am extremely confident in his skills and would engage his services again without reservation.

I came to Damon for assistance with writing a living will. He asked great questions and understood my needs, and after spending a significant amount of time with me, he humbly referred me to a lawyer that had more experience in the subject matter. Since then, I've had the opportunity to develop a professional relationship with him. I've found that he's incredibly consultative, objective, and simply a nice guy even if you're not his client. I 100% trust him and plan to continue to use his services whenever necessary.

When I was reviewing the instructions and application forms for permanent residency, I was intimidated by the language and thought I didn't have enough of the requirements to get my green card. Damon quickly eased my fears and misunderstandings, and convinced me that I actually did meet the requirements needed to apply for a green card. He kept my husband and I well informed throughout the whole process and answered any questions we had. Damon was professional yet approachable. He was also very well organized - which I really appreciated because there were so many documents. If you're thinking about immigrating to the U.S., I highly recommend Damon as a lawyer to help you with the whole process.

I have consulted with Damon 2-3 times over the last 5 years regarding some relatively minor (thank goodness) governmental interactions. Each time, he was able to do a very quick review of the law on the topic, and give me his thoughts on the matter. He was also supportive and helped to clarify and explain when a family member of mine had a situation requiring a restraining order.

I was in a situation where I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the wrong person while that person committed credit card fraud and made false accusations. I had no idea what was coming at me, it was just a bad and stressful situation.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Damon Shadid to any of my family and friends. He is one of the most ethical and honest attorneys I have ever met, a very well-rounded, and a genuine guy. The consultation I had with Damon was very professional and informative. He put me at ease during our conversation. The experience he has and his expertise to cover a wide range of practice areas makes him pretty versatile.
Damon definitely will tell you exactly what to do and when to do it. His excellent advice provided a great positive outcome for me. THANK YOU! Your best bet is Damon Shadid for the WIN!

Damon has always been able to answer my questions and he has been extremely candid in his advice. His experienced perspective and ethics have made him my most trusted legal resource. He has also been helpful to refer me to lawyers in his network when my questions have been outside his expertise.

Facing my second DUI in 4 years, and the first one being a deferred judgment; I was facing 2 counts in 2 different courts. It is seldom that you get lucky, and due to an arresting officer’s error in their report you have your case dismissed. Most often damage control (pain management) is the best you can ever hope for. I didn’t get lucky. And, I must say that Damon did exactly just that for me—maximum damage control. He was very responsive to all of our communications. He was extremely organized when it came to the details of my case. With all court appearances he was meticulous and ready to argue my case and was prepared with all legal defense laws applicable . His fee was more than enough fair for the level of competency he brought to the table. When it came to my sentencing I did receive most favorable outcome possible given the situation. Yes, I would recommend Damon to any of my friends or family if they are ever in need of legal counsel!

Damon provided review of the rental agreement I used for years with multiple tenants. He provided important comments and revisions to the document in a timely manner to help me expedite my apartment rental. Damon kept a great line of communication open and provided the candid feedback I needed.

Damon Shadid took the time to listen to my concerns, and hear my entire story. He asked the right questions, and was patient and calm. He offered me practical advice, which I took. My situtation ended up not needing legal council, but in the future, I will be sure to use Damon's assistance if needed. And I've referred him to several friends who have had success with their own claims. He is knowledgeable, well rounded, and very easy to work with.

Damon Shadid is without a doubt the best lawyer I have ever encountered. My husband and I hired him for my adjustment of status application and though it was a bit more complex than expected, Damon went above and beyond to make it happen. He is honest, hard working, professional, real, responsive, and on top of it all the time.
After getting married, my husband and I went in to apply for my permanent residency only to discover that I had a two year home requirement to fulfill before adjusting my status. I came to the U.S on an exchange student visa (J-1) that required me to go home for two years and then come back to the U.S. I, however, was offered a scholarship to finish my education and was granted an F-1 visa. Though, I came back to the U.S legally, I never fulfilled the 2 year requirement. This became a problem when we learned that those who haven't fulfilled the requirement are not eligible to adjust their status unless they were granted a waiver.
Damon, of course, was determined to get the waiver and do what it takes to adjust my status. Getting the waiver was not an easy process, but with his help, we were able to obtain a No Objection based waiver in three months. Shortly after, we began the adjustment of status application.
Damon was always on time and made sure to walk us through each and every detail of the process. He was present at every encounter we had with USCIS and prepared us for what to expect.
I received my green card at the end of October,2012. This could not have happened without Damon's determination, intelligence, organization, care, and knowledge. We will always be thankful to everything he's done for us. Thank you, Damon!
