Shawn represented me and a couple friends for some misdemeanor charges in Othello, WA. He did so pro bono, and took care of everything within 5 minutes of meeting the prosecutor. He is a quality attorney and an even better person. Nothing but good things to say

I was so fortunate to have been introduced to Shawn. He is completely & sincerely behind individuals courageous enough to fight to defend their Constitutional rights and individual civil liberties. You are no longer alone with Shawn Newman in your corner. He is not intimidated by those who seemingly act with impunity while trampling your rights, purposely reducing your property values, limiting property use and/or seizing it. Property rights are far from his only concern. If one chooses to stand up to, or is threatened by, those in power, Shawn won't flinch when the going gets tough while they pull their typical intimidation tactics. In fact, those he opposes fear him and for good reason. He is, quite frankly, a brilliant attorney and will navigate the raging waters with ease, all the while putting your mind to rest along the way. I would not want any other attorney in my corner.

Shawn is a master in the area of foreclosure defense and more specifically the best I have heard of on the subject of figuring out who really owns your mortgage loan. He did a very informative podcast on Mandleman Matters, which is how I found out about him. He is also well connected with other legal experts in our State of Washington and gives out good quality referrals to other lawyers and case law information that has been very helpful to me. Anyone in his local Thurston County area should consider themselves lucky to become his client.

My small business got sued for breach of contract. Attorney Newman helped get the lawsuit dismissed in less than one month. He provided excellent service at a fair price and with a smile.

To summarize my experience in a word I'd say terrific. Terrific service, terrific response time, I was well informed on all that was going on and Shawn Newman saved my butt big time. A great and affordable investment, I'd highly recommend Shawn to anyone who was in need of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.

Shawn is an aggressive and effective advocate but he won't waste your money picking unnecessary battles. Once he gets his teeth into your case however you will almost pity your opponent. He is very knowledgeable in many areas of law and has tremendous common sense which is a rare and valued trait. He has earned the respect of the community and has a posse of law students that adore him and follow him in and out of the courtroom. A rare gem!! I highly recommend his services!!!

Through the course of a difficult and challenging case that took several turns, Shawn kept us right on track. Sometimes he told us things we didn't want to hear, but I would rather know those items sooner rather than later. He was able to focus us on the strengths of our case, rather than on what the client perceived was the strength. Intuitive, kind, caring and professional would be the adjectives I would assign to Shawn.

We had a bad experience with another attorney and his HIGH PRICED Bellevue group. Details were overlooked, we felt like we had fallen through the cracks, that our case was not important to them.
Like so many others today, our home is worth less than we owe, dealing with megabanks and their teams of attorneys can be very difficult and expensive.
Shawn took over our case, immediately negotiating with the bank attorneys. He got them to admit to illegal activities. He got us a settlement that paid all our legal fees and court costs.
We have now been offered a loan modification with a large principle reduction and a long term low fixed interest rate!
We can't say enough good things about Shawn Newman, his knowledge of the current U.S. housing crisis, the mortgage and banking industry, as well as forclosure law is , in my opinion, unsurpassed. We still get e-mail updates from him with court decisions and legal opinions on things that pertain to us .

Shawn helped us regarding a dispute of an estate settlement. He helped us to concentrate on the facts and not the emotions of the situation. Family issues can be convoluted. The stress level was lessened because of Shawn's advise. We will definitely return to Shawn if any other legal issues arise for our family. We highly recommend him.
