The Firm’s mission is to protect business owners. Shawn is commonly involved, at some level or another, in most Firm client matters, which usually includes protecting business owners in some way, shape or form.

Shawn’s clients have been in a variety of industries, including internet, professional services, health care, real estate, agriculture, food processing, financial services, private equity, and heavy industry. While the Firm has expanded, so have Shawn’s qualifications to practice law. He is currently licensed to practice law in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
Shawn earned his J.D. from the University of Maryland Law School in 2002, with honors, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif and Phi Delta Phi (Awards & Recognition: G. Ridgely Sappington Prize for Civil Procedure; Judge Morton P. Fisher Memorial Prize for Federal Income Taxation). Shawn earned his BS in Finance and Accounting from Towson University (summa cum laude; Graduate of Honors College; Beta Gamma Sigma).
