“I much appreciate the clear and concise advice in a very straight forward business communication style! Shawn is a fountain of business knowledge that he can couple with his legal expertise to communicate with the business world as well as the public at large.” G.M.

"Shawn is my attorney for 4 businesses including one that is international. He is precise, thorough, and is always looking out for my best interest. His follow through is impeccable and he goes the distance in making sure I understand the legal jargon. If you need someone to get the job done right the first time - contact him immediately. I depend on him fully for all of my legal issues”. D.L.

“He is professional, and very knowledgeable and responsive. I have worked with Shawn on more than one occasion and I have found him to resolve my legal issues promptly and with an impressive expertise and at a reasonable price. Shawn is very thorough when it comes to protecting and representing his clients, and when I work with Shawn I am completely confident that I am in the best of hands. Shawn is the guy you want in your corner!” T.

“I appreciate your ability to help me quickly clarify legal issues and to guide me toward a negotiated settlement. You have helped me avoid making decisions that escalate a problem while keeping an eye on the bigger picture of solving problems. In the end, it is about conflict resolution, not about being right.” A.H.

“I am so happy to have such a great and accomplished attorney on my side who is a bright and creative thinker and always looking out to protect my interests, and who is also pleasant to know and work with, (that's a really unusual combination)!” T.F.

“We would have been completely lost without Shawn’s guidance. I had a client that was not paying me for my work and was also trying to hold my money hostage to try to make me sign a completely inappropriate NDA. Shawn handled the situation perfectly and not only was I compensated in full"

    Video Call, Telephone Call or Email consultation. "Shawn provided critical advice on the operating agreement for my new business. Three things stood out; 1. Balance of legal and business advice. His experience on the business side sets him apart from my attorneys. 2. Responsiveness. He reviewed the fast-changing revisions quickly. 3. His video conferencing meetings are as convenient as a phone call with the added communication elements of an office meeting. If you want a skilled attorney and business advisor to help you get started, call Shawn Jackson." K.S. “We hired Shawn Jackson to represent us in the purchase of a corporation. His professionalism, knowledge, and ethics was greatly appreciated it. He was timely in his responses (even working on weekends and holidays), always taking into consideration our thoughts and opinions. He was patient in explaining the law with regards to our engagement and also had an uncanny ability to explain the process ... well done!

    I found Shawn through Yelp. It was one of the best decisions I made as a business owner. I consulted with Shawn from the beginning of my business all the way up to selling my business. He was there to help me with any situation and always provided me with a prompt response. He has a down to earth personality, but always provided very well thought out responses to my questions. It wasn't until it came to sell my business where I saw Shawn's skill of dealing with the buyers and his ability to obtain the best deal for his clients. At some points I felt that Shawn was my business partner, not an attorney. He was able to successfully help me sell my business with the terms that I wanted. I never actually met Shawn in person, all of my interactions with him were through the phone. I don't care where you are - if you are looking for a business attorney stop your search and give Shawn a call.” Z.R.

Q. Can I win in court if I don’t have a written contract with the buyer
A: Well, it sounds like you have some "writings" and "communications" that would support some, most or all of your "services provided" as per your invoices. Verbal Agreements are in "most cases" just as enforceable as written agreements ... it is more a matter of evidentiary production than a formal signed written agreement. I would suggest that you schedule a free initial video call with the attorney of your choice ... and discuss how to best move forward with the matter ...
Q. Would you do contract document review?
A: Good morning ... good answer by James Arrasmith ... as you might imagine, a review process would require that you first speak to at least two or three different attorneys to get an idea of both their legal background and their experience and expertise ... along with a review of their background as to business ownership and real estate ownership. Sometimes, the answer is "legal" ... sometimes "practical" ... sometimes "by experience"... so, schedule a video with at least two - three attorneys and get more information,
Q. What kind of contract should I sign between a real estate agent and a wholesale buyer? We want to partner to buy homes.
A: You have several choices ... from a straightforward partnership agreement [not recommended] ... to a joint venture agreement with good insurance ... or form an LLC with a carefully drafted LLC Operating Agreement. In these types of ventures "People, Money & Real Estate", the clarity of the agreement and the various default possibilities ... and the significant exposure to liabilities over the next ten years for each project is significant. We usually recommend different LLCs for each property ... since you want to limit your continuing exposure to lawsuits and liabilities for various required notices and disclosures... the next step for you is to schedule at least two separate initial video calls with at least two separate law firms that focus on transactional law... your thoughts? ...
