Great Attorney

Attorney Shawn Childs
Shawn was a very good lawyer. When nobody believed my story and I was all alone Shawn listened and helped me win my case. He was very knowledgable about the law and did a great job preparing all the court documents as well as preparing for trail. He even worked with me on his fees so I didn't need all the money up front. Great attorney but even better person.

Highly Recommend
I hired Shawn and he did an amazing job helping me through this difficult process. He was always readily available to answer my calls, questions and even provided encouragement through my dark days. There were many of times, I wanted to throw in the towel and took my frustration out on him. Shawn remained calm and professional and made me see the bigger picture of my situation. In the end my case was settled through mediation. I walked away with far less than I would have liked of monetary value, but he helped me to realize the additional benefits I gained because of my boldness of seeing my case through to the end. Fast forward I am now running a successful business and grateful to know I still have Shawn as a lawyer on speed dial if needed! If you are looking for someone that is knowledgeable, down to earth and overall doesn't treat you like a number. I highly recommend you hire him!

Shawn Child’s 1. Quit when I did not want to settle. 2. Broke Client confidentiality with the defendant. 3. Made decisions for settlement etc—without asking me. 4. Did not know my case. 5. Refused to allow another more competent attorney assist—-he said, “I want all the money.” 6. He was not prepared none for trial. 7. He did not prepare me for trial. 8. The LawFirm has too many failures, it’s sad. 9 Stay away from him and his associates, partners.
