Oh, he is an exceptional and outstanding attorney. Definitely one of few who actually care about you and rights for what's best for you. If you've been wrongfully accused, Shawn McDonald's your guy. Thanks for helping me. I really appreciate beyond measure.

I was referred to Shawn by a family member in the criminal justice system. She said if she was ever charged with a crime Shawn would be the lawyer she would hire.
I found myself in an unusual situation and was charged with assault. 64 years old and never arrested before. Shawn believed in my innocence and worked judiciously on my behalf throughout this whole ordeal which lasted exactly a year.
I was found NOT GUILTY and if ever I need a lawyer again I won't hesitate to retain Shawn

Mr. McDonald is a very professional lawyer and knows his stuff. He represented my boyfriend in a criminal case who was found NOT GUILTY in 19 minutes. Mr. McDonald embarrassed the prosecution that was scrambling for evidence they didn't have to begin with. I highly recommend Shawn as a lawyer that is there to work for you.

I worked with Mr. McDonald at the District Attorneys Office for several years and he is very knowledgeable in the area of criminal law and acts in a very professional manner. He is also an excellent trial attorney.
