Mr. Hunter is hands down the absolute best person on your side in the emotional battle that involves divorce with children. There were many long dark hours riding out the judicial process, but Mr. Hunter's knowledge, patience, and ability to see the big picture were my saving grace.
So many times I emailed him in despair, as my children were being withheld from me by my ex and we awaited the process. He always responded and kept me informed of what was next.
I genuinely think this man walks on water. My ability to be part of my children's lives as they grow, is all thanks to his hard work.

I went to Shawn after having worked with another attorney who just didn't have the horsepower to get the job done. Both Shawn and Kimberly proved themselves to be capable, professional, and on the ball. He is direct and to the point but don't be turned off by that, he has your best interest in mind. I am grateful for what he's done. He was recommended to me by another former client of his who recommended him and I recommend Shawn whenever I can.

I am so glad that Mr Hunter was recommended to me for my divorce and child custody case. Mine was a contested case and the fireworks were flying, whilst Mr Hunter may seem unmoved and blunt in regards to aspects of the case believe me this does not mean he is uncaring or cold. He is professional and that is what is needed in such emotional and highly stressful situations. Take his advice on board and act immediately as his experience has taught him well to predict where the next drama will come from and will warn you to protect yourself from these possible situations. His assistant Kimberley is definitely one of his biggest assets and is very empathetic and knowledgable herself as well as fully equipped to calm things down and get the job done. My case, whilst long and drawn out was worth the end result. Thanks Shawn

Not only Shawn is a great family law attorney, but also has worked as a Guardian Ad Litem representing the best interests of children and becoming their voice in Court in cases involving their rights. His written reports to the Court as a Guardian Ad Litem and his attention to detail in those reports are excellent.
