About Shawn

Learn Shawn’s areas of practice.

I believe the only way to secure any meaningful justice for someone is to be ready and willing to take his or her case to trial.  I only represent people I care about, trust and believe in.  I maintain a small caseload so I am ready, willing and able to go the distance for each of my clients.

Highly Recommended
Shawn was an excellent choice for us from day one. My husband was in a car accident where he was hit from behind by a distracted driver. Shawn listened, walked us through the entire process, and fought for us every step of the way. He was compassionate and kind, never pushy or aggressive. He always gave us advice but ultimately left the decisions to us. We were on our way to trial, but we ended up with a great settlement. We would highly recommend him.

Kind yet professional
Shawn treated me like a true MVA attorney should. He showed me empathy during one of the most difficult times in my life, took a chance on my unusual case, and represented me in a very professional manner. Shawn always took the time to answer all of my questions and to address any of my concerns. I never felt rushed or timed when having a discussion or asking questions. He did a great job in not only representing my case but also making sure I felt supported and heard. Thank you for all your hard work, Shawn!

Kind, Sympathetic, Thorough!
Mr. Owen was very thorough in obtaining a settlement from the drivers who hit my husband. He was very thorough, knowledgeable, proficient, and sympathetic of my situation. He went out of his way to make the process easy for me, explaining every step of the process and the reason for information and documents required. I felt safe and confident in his desire and ability to do his very best for me. Thank-you, Mr. Owen!

Great attorney
Shawn was very professional, easy to communicate with, willing to put in the hours, and made the process easy for me as a client. He kept me up to date with any changes and always had a backup plan if need be. I would highly recommend Shawn and would hire him again if I ever needed an attorney.

Could not have asked for a better lawyer!
Shawn was my attorney for my motorcycle accident. From the first time I talked to him I knew I was in good hands. He was kind, compassionate and understanding. Shawn answered every question and took the stress away from the entire incident. He was beside me when we went to court because the other party contested the ticket. He walked me through every step of the process and kept the insurance company from trying to push me into a settlement I wasn’t comfortable with. Shawn checked on me regularly and made sure I had what I needed for medical treatment. It has been 3 years since my wreck, but Shawn still takes time to make sure I am still doing well. That is a practice you just don’t see much of anymore. I hope I’m never in the position to need a personal injury attorney again, but Shawn will be the one I call if I do.

An Attorney that actually cares!
Whenever you reach out for advice from an attorney it's usually because you need immediate help on an issue or concern about laws that you have no knowledge of. I was so impressed with his effort to help me and consistency in answering all the questions that I had. I had reached out to several other lawyers who didn't respond, didn't call back, or expressed little to no compassion for my situation. I instantly trusted him even when the answers weren't in my favor because he was upfront and honest.

Excellent Attorney who saved my life, Literally.
Mr. Owen was hired as my attorney to help me with a life threatening situation. He was 100% prepared for the case, right on point, professional yet easy to talk to about personal and uncomfortable situations. He has collected all of the evidence which provided no doubt and questions for the court to see that the respondent was at fault. I have won the case and thanks to Mr. Owen my life is no longer in danger. Best attorney in town. I highly recommend him !

Experienced (Well Done)
In 2014 a joint-venture I entered into fell apart resulting in the plaintiff severing ties without notice. In 2015 I was served, I was dumbfounded and began an exhaustive task of gathering data to defend myself. I felt prepared as I had compiled about 350 pages of emails, bank statements, copies of checks you name it I had it. This was magistrate court and I thought I could adequately defend myself since I hadn’t breach the agreement. I was later advised by a friend of the family who happened to be a Judge that I should retain an attorney because the plaintiff had done so and I would be taking a big risk. He recommended Hughes & Associates and this is where I meet Attorney Shawn Owen. After reviewing the rather large amount of data I presented he agreed to represent me in the case. On the day of the case Mr. Owen prepared me in such a manner I soon realized that had I represented myself I would have made a terrible mistake. I consider myself capable of defending myself in business but saying too much or little in court could cost you a lot of money. Long story short, during the last 30 minutes of back and forth testimony Mr. Owen outmaneuvered the plaintiff’s attorney, he was able to quickly counter ever charge the plaintiff’s attorney presented to the judge. During the weeks prior to the case I was a nervous wreck the night before the case I was unable to sleep and during the last 30 minutes I felt the most relaxed I had felt in weeks. When it was all said and done the judge found judgement my favor and awarded my counterclaim. I consider myself blessed to have crossed paths with Shawn Owen, and I hope to never set foot in another court room. In the event I must do so again Shawn Owen will be my first choice. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Shawn Owen Review - KLJ
Shawn is an associate at Hughes & Associates in Lawrenceville, GA. I met Shawn through Robert Hughes the principal at the law office and he agreed to handle an auto accident for my Grandson. My Grandson and I had already reached a tentative settlement with the insurance company which was representing the individual that caused the accident and was arrested for DUI at the time. Not feeling comfortable with the settlement and my knowledge of the legal system, I sought assistance and advice from Hughes & Associates. After a brief meeting, Robert and Shawn advised that I was well under what they felt was a reasonable settlement. My Grandson and I decided to have Shawn step-in and take over the case. Shawn immediately started working on the case and diligently analyzed the situation. Based on some preliminary info that we provided, Shawn was able to search court records from several surrounding counties and found that the other driver had several other altercations with the authorities including 2 other DUI arrests. The end result was a settlement from the insurance company of over 5 times the original tentative settlement and without going to court. Using the history of the other driver that he had uncovered, Shawn was able to present an extremely strong case that the insurance company realized they would lose if they elected to take the case to court. Shawn did an excellent job in his handling of the case and we were kept informed of the status of the case in a timely manner. All the people at Hughes & Associates were extremely pleasant to work with and were ready to assist us with any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Shawn and the Hughes & Associates team. If the need for legal assistance ever arises again, I will definitely use Shawn and the Hughes Team..
