    I endorse Shawn, whom I met about 10 years ago when we both volunteered at SF Bar Association's Legal Clinic and have referred clients to him since then.

  • Kara Rachel Lavy

    I was opposing counsel with Mr. Salehieh in Santa Clara on a child abuse bench trial and worked with him on many other cases for pleas. I was very impressed with his trial skills, care towards his clients, and competence of legal issues. Now that I am defense counsel (and not a prosecutor), I would certainly work together with him on the same side!
