Our brief encounter was reassuring. He was very knowledgeable about the statutes and laws concerning my situation. He was kind and took time out of his day to explain exactly what I needed to do. I would trust his advice absolutely.
Recently had an issue that Shawn does not specialize in, but he took the time to answer any questions I had and referred me to a very qualified attorney who does specialize in the type of problem I had. I definitely consider Shawn my attorney and will use him in the future for any other issues I might have, as well as referring others to him.
I called Shawn to ask for some advice and to possibly utilize his services. He was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and honest with me. He could have treated me as another number/client, like a lot of lawyers do. But, he did however, do just the opposite.
I can appreciate that his time is very valuable, and lawyers aren't in the business of helping people/clients for free. He spent over 30 minutes on the phone with me regarding landlord and tenants laws, and gave me some very sound and accurate advice. He could have just gave me quick yes or no answers, instead he took the time to explain everything to me in a kind and compassionate way. He could have kept our call really brief, and said "if you want to know more, come to my office, and it's going to cost you this much." Yet again, he didn't. He pointed me in the right direction, gave me incredible information and insight, and most importantly, he gave me hope.
I would highly recommend anyone to use his services, because not only is he a great lawyer, he's a great man. He genuinely cares about you and your situation, whatever it may be.
Shawn has helped me and my family many times. The latest had to do with claiming a dependent child during a separation. Shawn was extrememly knowledgeable and helped me write a letter with my proof of ability to claim to the IRS. Surprise, surprise... Shawn was right... AGAIN! I received a letter from the IRS yesterday stating that 'no action was necessary' on my part. Without Shawns advice and assistance, we would have amended the return and almost paid back to the IRS $4400.00! The CPA we hired, was even telling us we had to amend - they were wrong - Shawn was right. Shawn has so much knowledge in so many areas that I would call him for advice on any potential legal matter. Shawn has helped me and members of my family with divorce, parenting plan modification, bankruptcy, tax issues, DUI, business interests, collections for a nonprofit..... the list goes on!
My first experience with Shawn Alexander was in 2011, and he has been a valuable law resource since then, and ongoing. He is bright, quick to the point, and always willing to provide me with the tools to do as much of the work as possible, saving on the bill. As a paralegal student, I have come to Shawn on several occasions for information, advice and assistance. He's always been chock full of answers and guidance, and I everything he has helped me with has worked out - I trust him 110%!
Most recently, a friend of mine and myself had a run in with a car dealership that turned out to be the slimiest of them all. They were misleading, and trying to take advantage. After a phone call with Shawn, he has us on the right track - and the entire situation has ended with the car dealership eating their words with a fork and spoon and we ended up getting our desired outcome.
All Shawn requires is 100% honesty and the information of what exactly you want... he'll take it and run!
I have known Shawn personally for two decades and can attest in business and personal relationships he is trustworthy, principled, highly intelligent and easy to work with. I have used him professionally for several land issues and a few unfortunate irresponsible acts of mine which I needed representation for. Shawn has always been top notch and got me the desired results for a reasonable fee. he also has inspired confidence by assuring me at the start where I stand. I am no spring chicken and have used quite a few attorneys for different things. I really wished I been able to use him 30 years ago. I lost a few cases that I know he would have done better at than the attorneys representing me. Shawn has an intuitive knack for navigating difficult cases and getting a good outcome for the client because of his knowledge of the law, ability to use the tools and trick of the trade, and how to apply it to each circumstance. That's what it is all about for a win.
There have been many positive feedback and compliments about Shwan’s work ethic, knowledge, and expertise from his clients at this site. I like to add one more important point - his responsiveness to his customers.
My case was related to construction lien. In a home remodeling project, the primary contractor failed to pay a sub-contractor, so the subcontractor was planning to record a lien on my property. One day, I posted an inquiry regarding my issue on this site, asking for advice. The next day, Shawn responded. He continued to answer my follow-up questions afterwards. All those occurred before I even hired him. His professionalism really impressed me and I decided to hire him.
When he was handling my case, his schedule was very tight due to some court trials. However, he always tried his best to respond my email and phone calls promptly. From his email, I found that in addition to normal office hours, he used early mornings, late nights, and even weekends to service clients. Eventually, Shawn helped me settled the case timely.
I will recommend his services to other people.
Shawn was so quick to handle my case when I needed him. He immediately took the bull by the horns and focused on what I wanted and how to quickly resolve my boundary dispute without high costs. It’s been a true blessing having him referred to me and I will do the same for others.
I have a serious problem with broker and seller disclosures that has turned a potential retirement home into the ultimate nightmare. Everything is falling apart. I got 1200 square footage less than advertised because permits were never done on the entire daylight basement.
The brokers have no interest in settling. On my first call, Shawn gave me over a half hour of his time for free and even offered to look over my documents. If I cannot settle with the brokers, and he gave me some valuable suggestions on how to do so, he is definitely the attorney I will hire. His engineering background and knowledge of construction will also be important in fighting this battle.
Mr. Alexander was very prompt at getting my problem solved. I am very pleased with his work and would recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer. I feel very releived with him on my side ! I'd give him a 5 star any day!! Thank you Shawn
