Shawn saw me through some very difficult times and always treated me like I was his only client. He was very professional and non-combative yet never backed down when it was important. He kept me informed and always checked in with me to make sure we were in agreement when making decisions and was understanding and non-judgmental of me. I highly recommend him!

While going through a divorce is incredibly stressful, working with Shawn reduced my anxiety over the legal part of the process. Shawn always made time to answer my questions in a timely manner with compassion and clear communication. I was a budget conscious client. He was always very prepared for phone calls and meetings to minimize overall cost while providing superb service. I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn.

I have personally observed Mr. Menashe's strong work ethic and unwavering advocacy on behalf of his clients. Mr. Menashe's background provides him with the experience and skills necessary to address his clients' needs. A strong indicator of an attorney’s ability is whether his/her professional colleagues would entrust their personal affairs in the attorney’s hands. Not every attorney is capable of earning such respect and trust. I would trust Mr. Menashe to handle my case, and that is why I eagerly endorse this attorney.
