I went to law school hoping to become a family lawyer and have exclusively practiced in family law since 2009. I want to help people through the most difficult times. I believe it is important to get through this process and transition with dignity and respect.

I practice in all areas of domestic relations, including divorce, dissolution, prenuptial agreements, property settlements, spousal support, and parenting matters including child custody, parenting time, child support and grandparents’ rights. I regularly appear in Hamilton, Warren, and Clermont Counties’ Domestic Relations and Juvenile Courts.

I have extensive trial experience, but I truly believe the best way to approach terminating a marriage is through the collaborative process. I think it is important as an attorney to see things from my clients’ perspectives. If I were going through the process, I would want to choose the collaborative model because we can create some of the most creative options that truly suit the needs of a particular family.

I want to develop a personal connection with each of my clients, because I truly care about them. Knowing a client’s unique needs helps me better negotiate on his or her behalf or advocate for his or her positions. I will always be straightforward about a process and what my clients may expect.

On a personal level, I am a lifelong Cincinnatian, having attended Indian Hill High School, where I have served as a legal advisor to the Indian Hill Mock Trial team for the past decade. My talented team has provided me the opportunity to travel to the National High School Mock Trial Tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Indianapolis, Indiana.

Shawn Evans is the lawyer I'd ever recommend
There is no other lawyer I would trust this much to represent me. Shawn Evans listens and considers the long term even while helping navigate the immediate pressing need. My divorce has been highly contentious, emotionally painful, and drawn out. Shawn has been patient and enduring. She's been kind to me even when she's had to tell me 'like it is'. I realized early on how blessed I am to have her when I observed the way courthouse employees interact with her compared to other lawyers. (No one likes a bottom feeder even in the judicial system.) Shawn is respected and treats everyone as equal with grace. She is strength personaified without arrogance. In the court room, her precense is commanding at the appropriate time. She's quick and skilled with taking your story and presenting what is relevant. It is worth repeating, I wouldn't trust anyone else to represent me.

Shawn came highly recommended from several sources and after working with her through a difficulty and complicated divorce I can see why. She was wonderful offering the perfect advice at the most opportune times. She also helped to manage my ex and keep the proceedings on track. ( no easy task ) She is friendly and open, knowledgeable and compassionate. It was very easy to communicate with her across several platforms and she always responded in a very timely manner with concise and clear answers. I have actually already recommended her to several friends for several family legal matters.

D.S.
Shawn is one of the best! She is a professional, knowledgeable attorney that has excellent communication skills. Her ability to listen and devise a plan is top of the line, which in turn produced results that were positive for me and my children. Shawn walked side by side through the worst times and celebrated the personal victories both large and small. Never once did I feel as if she judged me for the situation I was in but was looking for ways to reduce my stress from delays and uncooperative other parties. I felt extremely confident having her represent me the courtroom and appreciated her perseverance during times of negotiations. She was not afraid to ask the tougher questions and work towards the best outcomes for my family. I will continue to recommend her to others as I have in the past.

Ms. Evans is knowledgeable and detail-oriented. She is upfront about everything you discuss and need to know. I am still retaining her and would recommend her to anyone.
