In 2006, Mr. Huston left San Diego and became a prosecutor for the county of Madera. As the prosecutor in charge of traffic court, he has handled hundreds of driving under the influence cases. Mr. Huston later became the welfare fraud prosecutor and the rural crimes prosecutor for Madera County. Mr. Huston was eventually transferred to become the drug court prosecutor and finally, the lead deputy district attorney for the Sierra Courthouse. In this position, Mr. Huston handled and litigated many cases ranging from driving under the influence to violent felonies (including assault, burglary, hate crimes, and attempted murder) for the eastern half of Madera County.
After three years as a deputy district attorney, Mr. Huston returned to Southern California and worked as a senior associate to several law firms in San Diego. He continues to practice criminal law and is an active attorney with San Diego County’s Office of Assigned Counsel. He has broadened his expertise in the civil arena by becoming proficient in bankruptcy litigation and returning to mediation and family law. He also represents business and business owners in corporate and civil litigation. To date, Mr. Huston has taken over ten cases to jury with favorable results.
Mr. Huston has evolved into an excellent trial litigator where he draws on his mediation and negotiation skills to bring cases to a swift resolution when possible but is not afraid to take a case to trial, and zealously advocate for his clients, when the opposition is unreasonable or intransigent (or both!).
As the lead trial litigator for Huston | McCaffrey, Mr. Huston has. He is currently admitted to practice in the courts of the State of California and all four federal United States District Courts of California.

Shawn is one of the greatest lawyers I know here in San Diego. He has solid experience in multiple areas of law, and is able to effectively handle all facets of any case he takes on. I highly recommend him and his firm for any and all legal matters. If he is unable to represent someone for whatever reason, he has the resources to ensure that they will get the representation they need.
