Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I was fortunate enough to have worked together alongside Shawn on several matters. He is an endless well of energy. Shawn is hardworking, creative, confident, and smart. If someone I loved were to be injured in an accident and asked me for an attorney recommendation, I would not hesitate to refer her or him to Shawn."
