Hands down, considered by many the best criminal defense attorney in town. When you hire Shawn Patrick Smith as your attorney, he will work the best to get you the verdict you deserve. It boils down to people, process and the politics. Sometimes the facts can get lost in the aforementioned, but being a seasoned trial attorney, Shawn can leverage the law to push the facts of your case while utilizing his experience and exposure of the above three constraints to drive to the conclusion you are ultimately seeking: Not Guilty.

As a point of reference, client Omar Sheikh had this to say, "I've realized something intrinsic about Shawn; if the prosecution has a good case, they will lose.   If the prosecution has an average case, they are going to lose.   If the prosecution has a weak case, they are just going to embarrass themselves."   A lot of lawyers are just talk, but Shawn's record speaks for itself.   A lot of lawyers will just settle to capture the fee and move on. To add insult to injury, they will aim to convince you that this is the best possible verdict available to you.
