Shaun is an experienced trial lawyer, having handled domestic, civil, probate, and criminal cases since 1987. He also handles business, corporate, real estate matters and estate planning. His philosophy is to try to resolve a legal problem first by taking a reasonable, fair and economical approach to the case. However, if the opposition is unreasonable or overreaching, he will take the case to trial. The way to win inside and outside the courtroom is to be well prepared, know the law, and accurately assess the facts on both sides of the case. Also, it is essential to fully advise every client as to what the law is, what options are available, and what the risks and benefits of each approach may be.


Shaun is a third generation Coloradoan, has been married since 1986, and is the father of six children. He was admitted to practice law in Colorado on May 21, 1987, and before the U.S. District Court, District of Colorado on February 25, 1988. He graduated from the University of Denver in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and again in 1986 with a Juris Doctor. He attends and is active at Grace Church of Arvada.
