Shawn's practice is concentrated on a broad range of real property, construction, small business and probate/estate planning matters. He regularly represents buyers and sellers, brokers and agents, landlords, contractors, architects, engineers, trade subcontractors, owners, and suppliers in resolving disputes involving the development, purchase and sale, and construction on real property.
