    5 star review  I spoke with Shawn. He phoned exactly on the time assigned. He listened to me and gave a response that put my mind at ease. I have spoken to three other law offices in the past 7 or 8 years regarding my issue. At the present time I do not need legal action and when I do in the future, I will definitely be in touch with him. For the first time since this problem, I feel comfortable for the time being, at least. Thank you Shawn.
