Extensive Experience

Over the years, Shawn has met and worked with some of the most famous lawyers in American history, including Richard “Racehorse” Haynes, Morris Dees, Joe Jamail, and Johnnie Cochran. As a civil rights lawyer, Shawn consecutively represented three Black men in Brazoria County, achieving remarkable outcomes in their cases despite significant backlash and adversity.

In the case of State of Texas v. Brent Woodard, the defendant was charged with Assault on a public servant habitual and was offered a 40-year sentence. However, Shawn successfully fought for Woodard, and an all-white jury found him not guilty of all charges.
