Very glad I chose Shaun!
I've had limited interaction but I can tell you my brief experience was nothing but pleasant. He was knowledgeable and judicious with his advice. He provided a consult and gave me some advice in order to research whether or not I need his services. I can't express how happy I am that I called him.

Great representation on mediation and foreclosure
Shaun was recommended to me by a colleague of his, and I have been very happy with his work. I was a buyer of a residential home and was poorly represented by my agent, and the sellers did not fully disclose some property defects. Shaun represented me at a mediation between all the parties. I felt well prepared going in and we got a fair settlement. Ultimately, I lost the property in a foreclosure and Shaun also guided me through this. Foreclosure is a terrifying thing to go through, but Shaun’s thorough knowledge of the process was very reassuring. Everything happened as he said it would, on the timeline that he stated. Shaun is always very responsive, returns emails and phone calls promptly, and was always available if I wanted to send off a quick question or two or ask a question by phone. The sense that I had someone available for guidance at all times was very reassuring. His billing was always accurate and I was never overbilled. Considering the peace of mind I got, the cost was well worth it. I would recommend Shaun to anyone facing these situations.

Excellent Attorney
Excellent Attorney. He listens well. Gets right to the heart of the matter quickly and economically. His integrity is without question. I continue to work with Shaun for myself as well as refer friends to him for Estate Planning, Real Estate, and Arbitration My only regret is that I did not become his client much sooner. VTW CPA

Exceptional attorney
I have been involved with Shaun Boss's legal expertise for over ten years and he has never failed to deliver exceptional legal advice and service. He is also a great negotiator and mediator. I would not think twice to recommend him to any friend or colleague.

Enjoyable Experience
We hired Mr. Boss to assist in preparing our wills and trusts. At our request, he also updates those for us from time to time. We were satisfied with Mr. Boss's work and he is knowledgeable in this area. He also answers our questions regarding real property rentals we own. He is always available and prompt to reply. We have recommended Mr. Boss to several acquaintances.

Client
I have used Shaun on several issues in my business, which is investing and real estate. Shaun is easily accessible, listens intently to the issues, and does his homework thoroughly. My cases have always been successfully resolved through Shaun. I believe the clients interests are his top and only priority, even if it means less billable hours for him. He is excellent at the mediation process, which can be a great benefit for all parties heading toward a lawsuit. I would highly recommend Shaun as I believe he is a true problem solver. If you are in a dispute, he will know your position and exposure, and you will get an honest assessment of where you stand at all times.

Great experience
I discovered this attorney thru internet research, and made an appointment for a consultation on a real estate listing /cancellation issue. He responded promptly to my question sent through his website and met with me early the following morning. He answered all my questions and left me feeling confident how to handle my situation to protect my assets, and I feel he is a great resource for home sellers who might find themselves in tricky situations that require legal advice or representation.

real estate disclosure fraud situation
Retained Shaun for a clear case of Disclosure Fraud by the sellers when we were buying a house. He initially worked diligently (was paid by the hour) but then was unable to stop the runaround from seller's attorney/broker/agent etc. so it turned out that only the lawyers got money. He should have focused/pushed on the clearly unlawful fraud that sellers committed. Very unhappy we got no justice. We only wanted our mold repairs paid. Would not recommend him.

"Shaun and I were oppossing counsel in a difficult multi party real estate dispute.Throughout the litigation, he was professional, knowledgable, responsibe and reasonable. Those traits define a good lawyer. During the litigation, I learned he was a real estate broker and mediator. Because of his broad experience and talents, I have since utilized Shaun as a mediator in a number of business/real estate matters. Shaun is also an effective mediator and we resolved the disputes. I highly recommend Shaun as a lawyer and mediator . Stephen T Cummings"
Real estate Attorney | Jul 17
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I met Shaun in 1990 as opposing counsel in a mechanic's lien foreclosure action. He is a terrific, experienced real estate and business lawyer - very knowledgeable and well-regarded. I was impressed by the way he handled the case, which resulted in a quick settlement favorable to both our clients. I have remained friends with Shaun and call him on occasion to ask for his opinion on real estate issues. I would not hesitate to refer other lawyers or clients to Shaun to deal with their real property legal issues."
