About me

The Texas Criminal Justice
system can be confusing and
unpredictable. As a result, many people
get lost in the system and are treated
like statistics. This is morally wrong.

I believe that all people must be treated
with dignity and respect. I became an
attorney to help people, and I am truly
committed to improving the lives of my

  • Lisa Sanders Richardson

    I had the opportunity to work on a case with Shawn and was very impressed. Not only was Shawn knowledgeable about the law but he was responsive to both the client we represented and to my office whenever we had any questions or issues. I would gladly work on a case with Shawn again.

  • Philip David Ray

    I endorse this lawyer. Shawn is never satisfied with the State's offer. He will work tirelessly at wearing down the prosecutor's resolve on a case and isn't afraid of taking every matter to the Elected District Attorney of Williamson County, himself. He is always looking for a creative solution that satisfies the client's needs.
