Shawn hunted terrorists with Shurat HaDin in Tel Aviv.  That skillset involved analyzing nuanced patterns of evidence to identify hidden plans, anticipate possible moves, and locate and seize assets owned by state sponsors of terror.  It was a primer for his legal career.

Shawn has substantial jury trial experience.  He is experienced in presenting evidence to a jury through cross-examining key expert and adverse witnesses, and through directing the examination of client witnesses.  He is well versed in all aspects of strategic, efficient, and effective trial preparation.  Has over thirty cumulative trial days before a jury.

Shawn also provides strategic consultation to a company engaged in the development of artificial intelligence solutions for extracting deposition testimony.
