Debt Collection
Shawn has assisted us on numerous debt collections. He wins 9 out of 10 of our cases. He is very thorough and takes his time on each case to ensure the best possible outcomes. I've used him both professionally and personally. I highly recommend Shawn!!

Shawn Grady is the best
Shawn Grady is professional, competent, and helpful. He laid out the options for us in collecting a debt and helped us find the best way to get the job done. He answers phone calls and emails promptly. We definitely recommend his services and would use him again.

Highly recommend
I had read great reviews of Mr. Grady online when I was looking for a lawyer and decided to go with him, and he certainly did not disappoint. He has outperformed my expectations of a lawyer. He is professional, knowledgeable, responsive, timely, and always so positive. I was having a very difficult time collecting from a lawsuit that I had won, and then I hired Mr. Grady, and he made it happen. I would highly recommend him.

Punctual, Transparent, and Delivers Excellence!
I used Shawn to pursue a judgement against a business that I had paid services for but failed to render. Shawn was upfront and transparent from the get-go to give the lay-of-the-land on the process and the variables that mattered in the equation to project the probability of actually retrieving the funds. He was very responsive during each step of the way and provided his knowledge accordingly. In the end we did end up we got the motion of judgement and the funds were retrieved. I highly recommend and would use Shawn in the future if the circumstance arrises again.
