  • Scott Shawver

    I have known Mr. Barton for thirteen years. During this time, I have frequently sought his advice on legal matters, and have always benefited from his insightful legal analysis. Perhaps even more rare, he has an unshakable commitment to practicing law in an honest and ethical manner, while at the same time vigorously representing his clients.
