Highly Recommended
I went through one of the most stressful and traumatic experiences of my life. I really needed someone who was there for me, not only for their exceptional legal expertise, but someone who was there for me as a caring and compassionate human being. Shann Winesett exemplified these qualities and then some and was the perfect choice. He was always there, right from our first phone conversation, and even sacrificed some of his own personal time to accommodate my case. He was always very prompt and available with communication, at a level of knowledge, skill, integrity, and professionalism second to none. I always felt his genuine care and compassion for my difficult situation, which he really proved to me at the conclusion of my case. I will be forever grateful to Shann for all that he has done for me and wouldn't think twice to highly recommend him to anyone.

Highest recommendation
This man re-instilled my belief in not only the justice system but that lawyers with morals do exist. His level of professionalism is of the utmost and he made me feel like my case was the only case he was working on. His integrity and intellect is at a level that I believe every lawyer should have but unfortunately I have had the experience learning that sadly, is not always the case. I would highly recommend him.
