Awesome Lawyer Review
Shawn is very knowledgeable especially in regards to foreclosures. I was referred to him by a friend and was expecting to pay for our telephone conversation and the helpful advice he gave which resolved my issues with my client, but his first consult was free! I am happy to work with him in the future and would recommend him to my own real estate client when the time comes.

Excellent and Honest Attorney
I contacted Shawn Morgan about my landlord-tenant situation with the property managers sending us to collections over questionable debts owed. He immediately made time for my consultation and was very clear in explaining the details of my situation and whether I had a case or not. He was very honest about my case and whether it was worth the time/money to resolve it in court. Shawn was also kind enough to refer me to another expert in landlord-tenant law in the area to consult with. I highly recommend Shawn Morgan for his honesty and professionalism.

Friendly, attentive, and thoughtful
Shawn and Lisa are my first call for issues relating to negotiating real estate deals, foreclosures, and property management. They are very helpful (and IMHO, undercharge). Lisa is fast and efficient in helping us review titles, and Shawn is shrewd about the best practices of real estate investing in Oregon.

Multi-faceted! A Real-Estate Law Expert!
A couple of years ago our company transitioned away from a large firm to work with Mr. Morgan exclusively. He and his team are able to address any and all of our legal matters, and always do so in a timely manner and at a fair cost. A pleasure to work with, we will continue to call on Mr. Morgan for all future legal and Real-Estate-related matters.

Excellent For Real Estate
I've been a very active real estate entrepreneur in the Portland area for the past 15 years. Throughout this time I've used multiple different attorneys, but now almost exclusively use Shawn. He has exceeded all of my expectations with his knowledge, professionalism, experience and ability to understand the need of the day. I've used him for contract creation, LLC creation, finance documents, management agreements, landlord tenant law, probate, debt negotiation and many other fields as well. Shawn is always my first call when I need education and assistance for anything real estate related.

Condominium unit sales (Land Sales) Contract, seller financed
Shawn successfully prepared the necessary documents, presented the documents to the buyer's lawyer, incorporated subsequent changes and led us to a satisfactory closing. We were able to achieve the process with just one office visit, a few phone conversations and Emails with document attachments. Shawn was responsive, efficient and effective. His fees were reasonably for the level effort and results accomplished

First-Rate Legal Representation --
After several false starts with other attorneys, we came to Shawn with a sticky real estate problem arising from an inheritance. Shawn quickly diagnosed the problems and offered us a number of reasonable solutions. He was able to negotiate a quite satisfactory resolution to a complicated legal situation. Shawn kept us well informed along the way and offered us sound advice when legal questions emerged. We have no hesitation giving our highest recommendation to Shawn for any real estate problem you may have.

Excellent Attorney !!!
Shawn agreed to take my sons criminal case pro bono. He effectively negotiated a settlement that kept a conviction off his record. Personable, available to answer questions and walk us through all the options. We are so greatful for him taking the case and helping us navigate out of a mistake that could have cost my son a lot.

Solid
I hired Mr. Morgan to prepare my estate documents after being recommended to him by a friend. He was easy to get in contact with, personable, and patient with my questions over the phone and in person. I felt he was reliable and cared about the outcome of his work when he carefully reviewed everything with me so I understood the documents and their implications. I am pleased with my experience with Mr. Morgan and strongly recommend him.

Shawn Morgan Attorney
During the years since Shawn Morgan was a deputy district attorney in Las Vegas, I have relied upon his knowledge and efficient legal advise in various real estate transactions. He has reviewed the legal ramifications of my acquisitions, subsequently drafted the necessary documents and followed up by finding the best available financing. I was particularly pleased that he was capable of drafting contracts with various contractors for major remodeling and finally handling my dealings with property management companies. I do not hesitate to commend him to any organization which requires his multi faceted talents and capabilities. Sincerely, Ed, Partner High Valley Properties.

real estate
I am an out of state real estate investor and Mr Morgan handled a very complex deal for me and my partners. He did a thorough analysis of the legal issues which included estates and probate as well as drafting the agreements and managing the negotiations for us with the sellers and the government agencies. He is remarkably thorough and very knowledgeable regarding both the law and the real estate market. We are thrilled to have his representation and counsel as we continue to use his services.

Real Estate
I was interested in purchasing a foreclosed home as an investment property and was unsure about potential legal complications. Shawn was knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive and not only helped with understanding the process and implications, but also drafted all of the necessary deeds and contracts. I would recommend him highly and will definitely use him again in our future investment endeavors.

Shawn helps tenants and landlords
Shawn helped us negotiate a settlement out of court which may have saved us thousands of dollars. He was diligent in his background research for our case and was professional throughout the process. I would recommend Shawn for matters pertaining to both tenants and landlords rights!

Great job on your "property" at 46 NE 148TH AVE PORTLAND, OR 97230
Your vacant lot is filled with tents, dogs, human excrement, and needles. Because it is private property, nothing can be done. Maybe fence it off? Lots of people are trying to actually live and feel safe in this area and the derelict property has a growing population of houseless folks living in squalor - I realize you live in a nice area and all, but you need to do something about this.

I've also discussed land use and landlord tenant issues with him; He is very knowledgeable. Finally, I've referred several clients to him for real estate issues and they're always satisfied. I endorse his work!"
