Shawn D.

After graduating with a bachelor's in Latin American Studies Shawn scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) and was granted an academic scholarship at the University of Denver.  While studying law Shawn began focusing on immigration law by working with a local practitioner and interning with Reardon Law Group.  Shawn accepted employment with Reardon Law Group and spent three years developing the Denver office until it was time for Shawn to form his own law firm.

They won’t waste your time and money!!!
Shawn is very professional, knowledgeable and honest. He guided us to right direction. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs to know about their rights. He takes his time and explain all what you need to know.

He is very upfront and direct. He also does an excellent work
He helped my husband to become a resident after his DUI's and after having other felonies. He has his residency now and he is not going to be facing deportation anymore. I always went with my husband to support him with everything he was going through and I had a good feeling about his lawyer Shawn and he was always prepared and knew everything that was going on and didn't promise anything and I actually liked his honesty, he was always upfront with us since the begining and because of that and because he won my husband's case I do recomend him.

He is my hero, I am legal now. He is fast and capable
I just wanted to recomend him to anybody who needs a good immigration lawyer. Everything went really fast and right, his prices are fair and maybe un expensive. Thanks to him I am legal now. He also helped my uncle who had a lot of problems and who also came illegally as well but, he has his green card now. Me and everybody in our family are very gratefull with him for all he has helped us. I just wanted to say thank you Mr. Meade-

He is honest and efficient, I am very gratefull with his service.
He is just a wonderful human being and a great immigration lawyer. A lot of my friends recommended him and I noticed that from the beginning he was knowledgeable and truly cares about each case. He is just a really bright man and I could feel that on our first appointment, he knew what he could do for me and what strategies he was going to use in my case. In court, he is very confident and that made me feel at peace. He won my case and now I can say that I am a US resident; I came to this country illegally and then I was put on deportation proceedings and even after that he still won my residency. I just wanted to express my appreciation I have for him and I was very blessed to have him as my legal representation.
