Awesome Lawyer and even a Better Person….!!
Shawn is a Awesome Lawyer, he spent several hours on my case and very lost the energy to fight. He has the knowledge and people skills to be tough in court room while being very personable when talking to you!! He was able to bring all the aspects of my case down to an understandable level. I can’t say enough about the job he did for me, I highly recommend him for any of for attorney needs!!

Very Supportive!
Mr. Latchford was a great listener, very helpful and informative. I swear he’s part counselor. He’s very responsive to calls and texts as well, which is so rare these days. He not only provided me with the information I needed but I felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders just telling him about my case. I definitely recommend him if you have a legal matter.

Shawn Latchford
Shawn is amazing. He is reliable, honest, and extremely knowledgeable. Working with him created a solid and much more bearable environment/situation- while dealing with one that was difficult to face. Shawn's grit and grace is what makes him so good at what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Auitor
I found Shawn Latchford to be very knowledge on labor laws and provided me with clear advice and direction. It is unfortunate there are employers who think they do not need to follow the laws. I am glad there are people like Shawn who can help.

Fast results, responsive, realistic
Shawn reviewed my case, then filed a complaint quickly after I hired him. He communicated with me at every step and allowed me to review all documents before filing. He gave me realistic advice regarding what I could expect and worked with me to develop a strategy to obtain the best result. My case, which involved a breach of contract, was resolved in less than four weeks after my first call to him. I plan to hire him in the future if needed.
