Shawn crowley was recommended to us and when we called we immediately liked him. He was detailed and competent in child welfare laws and was able to put our minds at ease concerning the issue.
Shawn was very thorough and tenacious in fighting for our rights and was able to get the case dropped due to lack of evidence.
We appreciated his loyalty and sense of humor during a very rough period for our family and child.
I would definately recommend Shawn to anyone needing a great and dedicated lawyer!

I hired Shawn for a family law issue and he was a likable guy who turned out to be aggresive,knowledgable and dependable. The case got dismissed and he didnt charge me for all the miniscule things like some lawyers do.

When I initially contacted Mr. Crowley and explained my issue, Mr Crowley asked enough questions to make sure he understood my problem. He was very clear about potential solutions and suggested what he considered the best one was. He immediately put me at ease by giving me all of the important information. He did not talk over me or waste my time with legal jargon.
At every step of the way, he let me know what was going on either by email or phone, so I never felt lost or overwhelmed. I thought that I would be in court, but he ended up getting my case dismissed. Can't do any better than that.
Would hire again and have referred friends with good results. A+

I endorse this lawyer. The application would only allow me to endorse Shawn for one area, so I've known him most recently in child welfare cases and I checked family law. But I've known Shawn for approximately 20 years. Many of those years we were as a co-worker in public defense. So I also know him to be an EXTREMELY aggressive criminal attorney of the highest caliber. And when I say that, I mean that if either of my own children had a criminal case or a DWI, I would not think twice about paying Shawn to work for us. I know that he would get the best possible outcome for them. I have been on all sides of of Shawn. (Smile.) I have been a co-worker, an opponent, and recently he has ruled as a pro tem on my own motions several times in Juvenile Court. He's a fighter, his rulings are fair, he's a renaissance man, and a damned interesting guy.
