Professional legal service worth its weight in gold!
I called the Oregon State Bar for a referral for an employment lawyer and they recommended Shawna Meyer. After consulting with her, I hired Shawna to represent me, and I'm very pleased that I did! Her professional legal representation was worth its weight in gold! She provided me with sound, legal advice and guidance, which led to the case being awarded in my favor on an appeal. I learned a lot from her and will gladly refer my family and friends to her. I highly recommend her! Thank you, Shawna!

Excellent Service
My wife and i don't have a lot of experience lawyers, but, unfortunately, like lots of people we have had to employ legal services a few times. Shawn Meyer provided us with the best service would could have expected. Shawna was always timely with emails and phone calls and most importantly, she showed a genuine interest in our case. Also, since our case crossed state lines she facilitated that transition to anotuer time going above and beyond in ensuring that transition went smoothly. My wife and I highly recommend Shawna and will take time here to thank her again. Thanks, The Wortmans

GOD Sent To the Poor
Was going through a difficult time in my business about an issue that I have with unsatisfied customer, a law suit That wasn't pleasant after I have explored all the avenues that I have just to Seattle this legal issues but No solution, most attorney required Ten thousand dollars upfront before they can intervene .Been a small business I don't have that kinda of money upfront, but by God grace I contacted Shauna Meyer, when I explained my story right away She Knew I was a victim of (circumstances) That the customer wanted to take an advantage. She just jumped into my case with what I have upfront, right away I knew she was (God sent) last minute. Furthermore she help me constructed an agreement of settlement between me, and the customer attorney that will enable me to Seattle the issue without going through the court system. Best Regards Uzor

Someone you can trust!
Shawna has helped me with various businesses and situations including start-ups, partnerships, labor, contracts and as an adviser for nearly a decade. I am a big believer in trust and knowing I have someone looking out for my best interest in every situation. Shawna has always had my best interest at heart and exceeded my expectations (they are higher than they should be and she still surpasses them). She is a rare gem in the industry and I am grateful that she is there for me and my businesses when I need her help.

Shawna took a very complicated case and worked diligently to resolve it. She was very responsive to communications and worked quickly in a very tight time frame. I feel that those who hire Shawna will be in very good hands--I highly recommend her.

Great Business Attorney!
I first went to Shawna in 2010 for my business needs and I have been very pleased with her knowledge of the law, professionalism, and demeanor. She always does her best to make time for her clients.

Smart, on-the ball, knowledgeable, helpful
Shawna Meyer helped us with contracts, and also helped us with landlord/tenant issues. She is a plethora of knowledge, was quick to respond to our issues, and was generally very professional. She kept us informed at every step of the process and got us great results every single time. I have recommended her several times and will continue to do so.

I'm sorry? Do I have an attorney? She doesn't respond. Extremely hard to get ahold of. Too busy not representing her clients.

This woman’s complaint history speaks for itself. Her good reviews are from individuals who know her personally as friends or family, not real professional clients. This woman is a complete joke. She is condescending, unprofessional and has a really poor work ethic. I fired her on the spot.

Did not do her job right! She over charges as well and wasn't straight forward about things. I will not go back to her.
