I recently had the pleasure of engaging Shawn Gritz as a defense lawyer for a traffic accident case. After talking with a number of lawyers initially, I found Shawn to be very responsive and honest about potential outcomes and costs, and chose to work with him. He patiently answered all my questions and gave me guidance on what information would be helpful for the trail. Like many professionals however it is not until seeing him in action on the day of the trial that I fully appreciated what I was playing him for. He successfully negotiated a settlement before the case was called, resulting in the case being dismissed. He did it in a very polite, professional and efficient manner and kept me informed of my options at each point. From his interactions with others, it is clear he is a seasoned lawyer and understands well how the system works. I would not hesitate to engage Shawn again in the future.
