“I have been a successful small business owner for over 15 years. I currently own 4 businesses. Shawn’s guidance and advice during a large part of this journey has helped me and my extended family tremendously. As an Asian-American woman it can be difficult to find an attorney with integrity who takes the time to recognize, understand, and respect cultural differences. Shawn is unique in this regard. He not only takes the time, but enjoys learning about cultures he is not familiar with. His integrity is beyond reproach. I consider him an excellent attorney.”By N.

As an advocate-he is tenacious while at the same time always the professional.”By L.

“... I rely on Shawn's judgment and advice in employment matters, in evaluating the effect of new case law or proposed legislation and in determining the level of risk we are willing to take in making personnel-related decisions. Though Shawn's legal advice is pragmatic, his analysis is not diluted by expediency. As a result, he is often the lone voice in the room. And it is the one I seek out. I am not alone in this regard. DOJ's leadership and agency heads do the same.”By P.

“...Shawn brought extensive experience as a civil litigator and manager to his position [at SAIF]. He aggressively pursued recovery in our third party cases and his team was able to surpass the previous annual record for third party recoveries... Shawn represented SAIF on several cases in his capacity as a Senior Assistant Attorney General in the Trial Division for the Oregon Department of Justice... He was responsive to our needs and was an excellent advocate for SAIF's position on all these matters.
