Shawn provided guidance during a difficult situation
I had a very complicated, potentially criminal case that started with a custody dispute. The challenges were multiple and sometimes appeared insurmountable. Shawn’s slow but steady guidance through the process led to complete exoneration. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Professional & Compassionate Lawyer
Attorney Stottlemeyer took our case at the 11th hour, after listening to a desperate message I’d left with his office. Our custody case had been extremely complicated, beginning in Perry County and continuing for almost 8 years with an highly combative ex-spouse. I had almost lost all hope of getting it resolved in a healthy way. There was an escalating domestic abuse situation and my children were in danger. Not only did Shawn help us get the protection we needed from the court, he took time out of his busy schedule to speak with both my kids, as well as myself in order to secure a guardian et litem to help them have a voice. My kids are now thriving and have been in a stable, safe environment for almost 3 years now. All thanks to Attorney Stottlemeyer and his hard-working team at Mooney Law. We are very grateful and couldn’t have done this alone. Highly recommend.

Outstanding expertise and professionalism
Shawn Stottlemyer is an exceptional professional whose keen legal expertise and dedication made a difference in my DUI case, resulting in a successful outcome. I would highly recommend Shawn and am grateful for his advice, guidance, and the time he took to explain all aspects of the process. His experience as a trial attorney reflected in the excellent way in which he presented my case in court. I really appreciate his efforts and his responsiveness.

Estate Planning
We went to Mr Stottlemyer to have our Will, Power of Attorney, Living Will made up. He was very good at explaining everything to us before we filled everything out and again went over everything before we signed. He explained everything in terms that we easy to understand. We were very satisfied with the service that he provided for us. We would recommend him to our friends and family.

Absolutley the best.
There is not enough space here for me to tell you how much I appreciated what Shawn did for me. Shawn is the epitome of what a n attorney should be and do for a client. I couldn't be more please with what he done for me. He answered every question I asked, always called me back when I needed him to, answered every text. This man went the mile and then some to take care of my legal needs and questions. I will recommend him to anyone I ever hear saying they need an attorney. He is the best.

Beyond the call of duty!
Not sure where to start.... I was a hot mess when I left a custody hearing and walked into the offices of Mooney and Associates. I balled my eyes out to the receptionist Wendy about my predicament of my child’s father wanting to court for full custody. Attorney Stottlemyer was standing there the whole time listening quietly. When I was done sobbing he said “ma’am I can help you, come into my office so we can talk more.” He was so genuine and helpful and agreed we had to act fast to get jurisdiction changed from Pa to Va where my son and I moved to. He acted fast and kept in constant contact with me about the progress of everything. He fought hard to win my case. He researched other successful cases like mine and referred the courts to review them like he had and within 4 short months he won my jurisdiction case! If you are on the fence about a lawyer, look no further! Shawn is awesome and he truly cares and will fight hard and long for you.

Poor representation of Criminal defense Attorney
This Attorney Agreed to defend me in Franklin County on a criminal matter for $2000 flat. As soon as he got the $2000 He did nothing in my defense. I asked him multiple times for a fee agreement but was never given one to sign. Later I got bills to me for $2900.00 For nothing he did. Stay away from this lawyer!
