  • James M. Simpson

    Shawn Lillie is an outstanding attorney, with over twenty years of experience. He has represented clients throughout the country, primarily in matters involving labor and employment relations. His reputation for legal ability and professional ethics is preeminent. I have had the good fortune of being his co-counsel on numerous occasions. Over the years I have paid him the ultimate compliment of referring my own clients to him, in matters involving his special counsel and expertise. If ever I needed an attorney to represent my own interests, he is the person to whom I would turn.
