Shawn Kollie
I hired Shawn after speaking to him about getting my 3 felonies expunged. He's an awesome attorney and got it done for me with lightning speed, all within only 3 months. One thing that I found amazing, was that whenever I called concerning a question of mine, he was ON it within no more than 24 hours, which in my experience with other attorneys that I've had, just is hard to come by. He's an amazing attorney. Bottom line, is that I highly recommend him!

Invaluable Legal Counselor
I called Mr. Kollie to get a legal opinion regarding Oregon law. I have paid many other counselors upwards of $6,000.00 for opinions in their state for the same legal scenario. Mr. Kollie wouldn't accept any payment for whatever reason, and our call consisted of 4 minutes. Mr. Kollie's knowledge was immediate and completely explanatory to my issue. I will certainly keep his contact information in my phone for future use should I require his services.

Thank you Shawn! Clear, Honest, and fair about your options.
Would give 10 stars if I could! I reached out to Shawn after many years of being told there was not way to get 4 felony driving convictions expunged or set aside by other attorneys. He explained the process and was very honest that the path was not easy but gave me a plan to follow. His team communicated clearly and I am looking forward to purchasing my first fire arm for hunting this year!

Excellent
Shawn is the best. I would recommend him to anyone who has had a past conviction and wants to get it expunged. After 30 year of having a felony conviction on my shoulders Shawn helped me to get that gone. Now that it’s gone I can do the things I hear about from other friends. I can go hunting with my dad again. Your awesome Shawn .

24 hour call line, no joke, picked up Immediately.!
No charge only asked i tell others what my review was and said i would and this is it. Told me what I concluded , in my case was good minus waiting out delay which is for good also ultimately if proper people are in place. That being said , dont delay proper people from protecting ones they love in worse case scenario, God willingnot needed!!! I'd expect he would do the same if it wasn't what you hoped to hear, just facts.

Background check for slow firearm approval.
I was referred to Shawn by a local gun store due to a slow background search and approval for a firearm purchase. Shawn and his staff was friendly and helpful. Shawn called me and gave me what was found and advise me on what to do next. Other than the fingerprinting there was no charge. Much appreciated.

Money well spent
I want to say that I have so much respect and appreciation for Kollie Law. I was so nervous for my case and they helped me every step of the way. I reached out for gun right restoration and they did just that. I have my gun rights back and I am so thankful for them. Thank you a million times Kollie Law, you are changing lives. Shawn was at my hearing and explained exactly why I deserved to have my rights restored. My charges were from Washington state and I currently reside in Oregon. Shawn helped prepare for court and told me what I would need to help make my case stronger. My wife was able to testify on my behalf also. I recommend them 100%

Great Lawyer
Shawn helped me with a complicated gun restoration case and really went above and beyond in seeing it completed. Despite deliberate obstruction and misinformation coming out of Salem and the FBI he calmly and methodically persisted to our desired outcome. For the flat fee he charged I am amazed at the time and dedication I received.

Set aside conviction
I can't truly explain in enough words how happy I am with Mr. Kollie, and his staff, I live out of state, he was able to get conviction overturned without me having to travel 2000 miles, he stayed in contact, and kept me informed on everything, any time I called, or emailed, he quickly responded, very impressed, I truly thought this was an impossible outcome. I would 100% recommend his office, and will keep him on speed dial.

I contacted Shawn about firearm laws in Oregon State before traveling through.

Gun rights restored
Shawn is an amazing man to work with. His legal team , especially Tina, was a great decision. I was given great responses in a fast manner. I was given the opportunity have my rights restored. They are quick and efficient. I'd recommend over and over that this is by far the best attorney to choose from for anyone looking for their fire arm rights back.

Feel like a whole person again
Shawn and his group went above and beyond in the restoration of my rights. A dream I never thought would ever be achieved or would be out of reach financially. His group made it happen. One phone call could change your life like it did mine. Only thing you got to lose is your past

Restoring your RIGHTS
Some time ago when I was young and inexperienced with life I made some poor decisions. Fast forward 10 years and I have completely turned it around. Part of this journey included restoring my rights that I foolishly lost. I noticed an add in the Oregon Hunting Regulation book that could help me restore my rights and I thought "what they heck it cant hurt to send him a message". 5 minutes later I was talking to the man himself, Shawn Kollie! Shawn was a breath of fresh air! Most lawyers I spoke to about my case simply couldn't help me or put the pieces to the puzzle together. Shawn was very patient with the whole process and he helped me understand all the details needed for my case to succeed. All in all it took maybe 45 days? I was very surprised at how quickly him and his team were able to turn this around. I can't thank him enough for the weight he has lifted off my shoulders. The past can TRULY be the past. I can finally get back to normal and pursue life to the fullest. Thanks again Shawn, if you ever need anything let me know. For future clients, DON'T waste your time with ANYONE else. Shawn is the real deal, he is honest, professional, and has lots of integrity.
