After nearly 20 years defending clients, Shawn Brown fights for justice just has hard as he did on that first day he opened his practice.
He's a native San Antonian who grew up around the legal world with several attorneys in his family and found his inspiration to continue that tradition. After graduating from Texas A&M University, he attended Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law), in Fort Worth.
Although he could have pursued a career in corporate law or several other specialties, he loves being in the courtroom and feels a calling to help people in some of their most difficult times. As a criminal defense attorney, he focuses on fighting to make sure people have the toughest, strongest and most determined advocate in their corner.
"Our reputation speaks itself at the courthouse," he said. "People know when we show up to court that we're going to be prepared, we're going to be ready and we're going to fight for our clients' rights."
From the moment he starts representing a client, Shawn makes sure he's available. Whether clients contact him by phone or email, they will receive answers and know the latest developments in their case.
"I want to make sure that our clients' rights are protected and they get the best possible representation for their case. It does not matter if it is a traffic ticket, DWI, Drug Possession, or a Murder case, we will treat it like it is the most important case in the courthouse" he says.
Shawn represents clients in the San Antonio and South Texas area focusing on criminal and personal injury cases.
