Shawn graduated from the University of Washington in 1989, and Willamette University College of Law in 1993, finishing in the top 25% of his class. Prior to a legal career, he worked for Congressman Tom Foley, then the House Majority Leader; the Attorney Generals Office of Fair Business Practices and the Senate campaign for Mike Lowry. In Law School he concentrated then, as now, on criminal law and civil litigation. He was a prosecutor for the Spokane County Prosecuting Attorneys, working in the DUI unit, Domestic Violence, felony Property Crimes, Welfare Fraud, and Drug Crime units. He has tried over 60 jury trials. Although most cases settle with negotiation before trial, it is the willingness and ability to take a case to trial that gets the best “deals” for a client. Sometimes a prosecutor has to pushed to the verge of trial before an agreeable resolution can be had.
