Excellent!!
Mr. Organ is highly responsive and extremely professional. Working with his firm has made a difficult situation much easier to navigate. He has always shown a deep knowledge of the law, partnered with patience and compassion. I’ve worked with many attorneys through the years, but never had the confidence and appreciatation for the high level of integrity Mr. Organ brings to the practice of law.

Excellent attorney and very thorough and won.
Shawn was very responsive and tremendously valuable with his insights and legal experience. He has become the only attorney we use for complex litigation. We were pleased with him and his associates' attention to detail and responsiveness. The Best.

Best Lawyer I have Used, and I have use a lot.
Shawn, from initial interview through the final appeal (and ultimately settlement) was proactive, creative, hard-working and successful in prosecuting my claim. His firm's fees were far less than I expected and the work was consistently top-notch. He has been my "go to" lawyer for 20+ years now.

Unprofessional at his best
Mr. Organ was extremely rude and uncooperative. I tried speaking with him many times and discussing a situation and he refused to listen and even hung up on me several times. I even had facts to back up my statements but he did not want to hear any of it. All he wanted was money, money that was not even owed and unfortunately has to go through him to be cleared up. So in the meantime he continues to add fees on while I am trying to find assistance elsewhere. His actions and behaviors were childish, immature and unprofessional. I would never recommend him to anyone. As a matter of fact I would advise staying as far away from the name Shawn Organ as possible.
