Thanks Mr. Paschall
Shawn took time out of his busy schedule to get to my situation entirely. Not only did he make me feel very comfortable talking to him, he always kept me in the loop of what was going on with my case. Thank you for this and your services are greatly appreciated.

words can't express my gratitude
Shawn was referred to me by a person that had used his services in the past. He was able to be reached very easily, he returned calls promptly and he was extremely professional. Not only was he professional but he really seemed to care about my case and me as an individual. He took the time to explain everything, he put me at peace and he got me through a very, very hard stressful time. Being accused of a crime that you didn't do and having to prove yourself was a very scary, serious situation Shawn helped me to prove I was innocent and helped me get back to a normal life. I highly recommend Shawn he is an amazing individual and a compassionate person not to mention an excellent criminal defense attorney.

Shawn is the very best!
Shawn was my lawyer in 2012. He is absolutely terrific! Very professional. Not only has he done wonders from me but, for my family and other people i know. i was on probation and received another drug charge. Shawn fought and got me into a wonderful program/rehab. Now i'm looking at 2 years clean and sober and doing wonderful. I owe part of that to Shawn Paschall for fighting for me! He is one of the best in tarrant county.
