Excellent Attorney and Good Guy
Shawn is an excellent attorney and is highly knowledgeable about the business acquisition I am doing. He was very responsive to my requests and took his time making sure I understood everything that needed to be in the contract to protect me. I will hopefully be able to consult with him again for future legal business needs. I am so happy that I was able to receive his counsel today, and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a good business attorney.

The best business attorney I've met
I have owned a few businesses and have dealt with several attorneys. More specifically, I've sold a few businesses and worked with an attorney who I thought was "average" to help me with my sales. I wanted to explore what else was out there so I found Shawn through Yelp. It was one of the best decisions I made as a business owner. I consulted with Shawn from the beginning of my business all the way up to selling my business. He was there to help me with any situation and always provided me with a prompt response. He has a down to earth personality, but always provided very well thought out responses to my questions. However, it wasn't until it came to sell my business where I saw Shawn's skill of dealing with the buyers and his ability to obtain the best deal for his clients. At some points I felt that Shawn was my business partner, not an attorney. He was able to successfully help me sell my business with the terms that I wanted. I never actually met Shawn in person, all of my interactions with him were through the phone. I don't care where you are - if you are looking for a business attorney stop your search and give Shawn a call.

Highly recommended - Exceptional knowlege and integrity!
I had the good fortune to find Shawn Jackson as I was expanding my coaching and consulting business. I was amazed by his rare combination of legal expertise coupled with in-depth business knowledge. Honestly I expected him to be able to navigate the legalities of the business world and advise me well. What was impressive was his incredible breadth of knowledge about what makes a business successful, his ability to communicate it clearly and his support. Shawn's, unique skill set gives him a global perspective as well as expertise to support any business.

Sharp!
“Shawn Jackson is a super sharp individual. Not only does he have a variety of business experience and a clear knowledge of the law, but he has an uncanny way of looking at a situation from angles that most people would never consider. It is especially his ability that I believe gives him a unique intuition when it comes to problem solving. His ability to work with me the way I like to work makes me happy to have Shawn on my side.”

Mr. Jackson has been retained to provide multiple tasks service for construction company. The first one was Client - Attorney fee dispute where Mr. Jackson represent the construction Co and was involved in multiple settlement negotiations with different parties. His service helped to make a settlement with attorney shortly before Arbitration and with positive financial result for the construction Co. The second case where Mr. Jackson was involved with us was an employment issue the company recently faced. Reviewing the company corporate documents, Mr.Jackson could provide us with relevant, useful, and important information in a prompt and timely manner. All invoices due to Mr. Jackson office for services he provided were reasonable and below the industry standard fees.

We would have been completely lost without Shawn’s guidance
“We would have been completely lost without Shawn’s guidance. I had a client that was not paying me for my work and was also trying to hold my money hostage to try to make me sign a completely inappropriate NDA. Shawn handled the situation perfectly and not only was I compensated in full but he diffused the situation in a very professional manner. I never signed anything. I would not have been able to handle this on my own. He gives great business advice and is extremely timely with responses and handling any questions. Thanks!” J.O.

A great, funny and trusting Attorney
Shawn Jackson helped me with a business contract that I was dreading doing myself but once I decided to involved him in the process he made the process an absolute breeze. He took the headache out of understanding the legal jargon by explaining it to me in detail with examples and from his own personal experiences. He is a great listener, funny and always has my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Shawn Jackson.
