About me

Since 1990 I've been working to help people where their needs intersect with my God-given talents, my education, experience, and abilities. 


In my professional practice this includes helping people with personal injury, worker's compensation and insurance claims.


In my personal life, I love coaching football, playing golf, and helping those non-profits that are near and dear to my heart.

    John Shean is not only a very well-known and respected plaintiff's personal injury attorney, but he is also a very effective mediator, who has successfully mediated several personal injury cases for me.
