Not all lawyers who advise businesses have been in business themselves. Shawn has.
Prior to practicing law, Shawn started and then, as President, grew a small family business into a multistate operation. In that role, Shawn experienced firsthand the challenges that business and business owners face in navigating what can, at times, be a complex, frustrating, and expensive legal system. Whether it was working with outside counsel to shape an effective litigation plan, planning and then implementing growth strategies through the acquisition of other companies, negotiating and enforcing employment, supplier, and customer contracts, or simply managing the day-to-day affairs of a thriving business, Shawn knows firsthand what it is like to be a client.
Shawn brings that practical experience and business background to his law practice. His goal is not just to provide effective legal counsel, but to also build a relationship with his clients and to help them strategically manage and then resolve any legal issues they may face. Though Shawn prides himself on providing practical advice and works diligently to help his clients avoid litigation, Shawn has experience litigating matters throughout North Carolina, when necessary.
Outside of the office, Shawn enjoys spending quality time with his wife and three children, community service with his church, golf and traveling. He is an outdoor and sports enthusiast. His goal is to one day ride a Triumph Tiger across Europe.
