“I am so thankful that Shawn R. Jackson came highly recommended by a trusted source right when I needed someone who had the knowledge and skills I needed with a work related situation. He was clear, friendly, easy to understand and very pleasant to work with. He resolved my situation in lightning speed (after others tried to warn me it would be close to impossible). I am so grateful to Shawn and his amazing, and valuable work and will continue to go to him for all our future legal business needs.” D.V.

  

“I just wanted to give you an update and say THANK YOU!!!! I just looked at our financial intake for last month, we made more money than we've ever made in a month! I can't thank you enough for all of your wisdom and help but most of all your support.” Denise


“Thank you for answering my questions including those I did not know to ask. I feel much better prepared moving forward.” J.C.


“I was giving up on the business and now I feel excited, passionate and fulfilled about our business and especially about our future. You have a depth of understanding for both business and human behavior beyond anything I have seen or worked with before. I can't thank you enough!”  D.W. 


“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.


“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 but he diffused the situation in a very professional manner.  I never signed anything.   I would not have been able to handle this on my own.  He gives great business advice and is extremely timely with responses and handling any questions. Thanks!”  J.O.


“Mr. Shawn Jackson has handled several business and legal matters for me over the past many years.  The results were consistently the best possible.  Not only is he effective and ethical, but also extremely gracious in all of his dealings. He adds harmony to an otherwise often contentious business world and is truly a pleasure to work with.” Dawn D.


“Mr. Jackson worked very hard to get the other person to sign the agreement to pay my money back. I really appreciate his professionalism dealing with the other person's Lawyer, and his knowledge about the case. I would really recommend him to my friends and I will use his office service for my future legal needs.” A.R.


“Shawn Jackson has served as our attorney, providing legal and financial advice both for our personal affairs, as well as for our company. My wife and I have found him to have a vast and deep knowledge of many aspects of the law in a wide range of fields, with a highly developed and keen intelligence and a wonderful sense of humor.” G.T. 


“Shawn, I can’t thank you enough for your time this morning.  It was extremely helpful. 

I felt armed with confidence entering the tough conversation I had to have with my business partner.  We ended up having a very civil and pleasant conversation and now clearly see the way to resolve our differences.  I highly doubt it would have gone so well without our conversation this morning. Thank you again.” L.L.


“Mr. Jackson is an honest lawyer who gives great advice to his clients. I experienced this when he handled my case. He did and still giving me good advice. I truly recommend his office for all legal needs.” A.R.


“I would highly recommend Shawn Jackson and his office. I was involved in a very stressful and possibly costly legal matter, that Mr. Jackson was able to assist me with. At all times I felt that he had my best interests at heart, taking away the stress and finding a positive outcome to a bad situation. He saw the light at the end of the tunnel and through the guidance of him/his office we were able to get there. Thank you”. M.G.


“Hi Shawn, Thanks for all of your incredibly valuable guidance and advice.  I am completely satisfied with the outcome and have notified all of the appropriate government agencies, creditors and the landlord will receive official notice today, following all of the guidelines that you gave me. Thanks” [TF]


“I first met Shawn and asked him to review a lease that I was in the process of renewing.  That one quick review saved me not only time, but over a thousand dollars.  Over those years I have consulted Shawn on many different types of concerns relating to my businesses.  He has always been very prompt and attentive to concerns.  Because of his professionalism I have referred him to several of my business contacts and friends.” Larry S


Please see Shawn Jackson's contact information below for your client. I just worked with Shawn and he was great. I have worked with many attorneys over the years and he is a “get it done”, “bottom line” business attorney. William S.


"Shawn Jackson is great!  He is smart, knowledgeable, approachable and effective.  I feel fortunate to have met him.  Shawn has helped me with legal issues in my business and I would not hesitate to work with him again.  He is a wonderful resource! Thank you, Shawn!”  Paula S.


I gave Shawn a referral to review a retail lease in Petaluma. He did an amazing job, turned it around fast and my client is very happy with his feedback on the lease. This looks like the beginning of a great relationship. Mark


“As a business owner, there are many legal issues to navigate. Shawn Jackson’s knowledge and negotiation skills have served me and my company at the most professional level. Where most business owners see legal cost as an expense, working with Shawn provides us with consultation that saves or even makes us money.” M.M.  


 “Mr. Shawn Jackson has been my business lawyer for over 12 years. His knowledge and experience in business law is very important to me as a client, but equally important is Mr. Jackson's ability to try and resolve matters between the two disagreeing parties that are more personal, not business related, that makes Mr. Jackson so valuable.”  Gary S 


  

“He has been able to make a complicated process more understandable and we trust him to make sure we get the right work done at the right time. I would recommend Shawn to any company who is seeking to grow their business to the next level.” Peter V.

“The Business Blueprint for Success (BB4S) is the most comprehensive coaching program I have seen. Yet, Shawn is able to quickly and accurately discern where I was and where I am each time in my business and apply the appropriate module in simple, understandable bites that gets me excited and moving in the right direction. I find Shawn flexible enough to address pressing issues without losing sight of the big picture. Sometimes it's hard to tell what an alternative path would have looked like, but I think I would have given up on my business if I wasn't coaching with Shawn.” D.A.

Those skills, combined with his natural drive towards implementation, makes Shawn Jackson a game changing resource for any business owner who is serious about increasing the value of their business, and ultimately, their life.” D.C.


“After starting the Business Blueprint for Success program, I feel more confident in my business because he is helping me build a strong foundation. Shawn is incredibly intelligent and insightful and has the ability to provide guidance, structure, critical feedback and reassurance all at the same time. He also has a wonderful sense of humor which I really appreciate!” J.P.


“Shawn Jackson is a super sharp individual. Not only does he have a variety of business experience and a clear knowledge of the law, but he has an uncanny way of looking at a situation from angles that most people would never consider. It is especially his ability that I believe gives him a unique intuition when it comes to problem solving. His ability to work with me the way I like to work makes me happy to have Shawn on my side.” Mickey G

“Shawn is an excellent attorney and is highly knowledgeable about the business acquisition I am doing. He was very responsive to my requests and took his time making sure I understood everything that needed to be in the contract to protect me. I will hopefully be able to consult with him again for future legal business needs. I am so happy that I was able to receive his counsel today, and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a good business attorney”. T.S.  


I have owned a few businesses and have dealt with several attorneys. More specifically, I've sold a few businesses and worked with an attorney who I thought was "average" to help me with my sales. I wanted to explore what else was out there so 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.


“I called Shawn Jackson when I was confused and concerned about a false on-line review we had received on a social media web site. Shawn immediately took action for me, helping me feel I had a knowledgeable, professional Attorney in my court.” D.V.


“He was quick to take action and checked in with me each step of the way. He was able to resolve my case even when others told me it would be impossible. I highly recommend Shawn and his professional services. Unlike other Attorneys, Shawn is clear, easy to talk to, and genuinely cares about his clients. I am so glad I found him!” Denise


“Your delivering of the complex knowledge of business development and your homework taught me, FROM SCRATCH, how to create this sustainable, principled company of which I couldn’t be more proud. I will say, just as importantly, you were 100% there with ME, then US, my team, showing your heart, and your caring for us both emotionally and spiritually every step of the way.” Phil

 

“Shawn, when we first met, I had a product and business concept, both of which are totally unique. You saw and FELT who our company is and you were a tremendous Navigator along all the uncharted waters. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there every second. I’m honored to always have you as part of our team and look forward to our next opportunity.” P.M.


"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 adviser to help you get started, call Shawn Jackson." K.S. 


"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.F.

 

“Honest lawyer to work with... meet your financial needs… gives great advice and goes beyond the required work to be done. Answer emails and phone calls in timely manner. I really appreciate all his help and guidance during my case.” AR

 

“Words will not be able to adequately describe Attorney Shawn Jackson. What immediately comes to mind is impeccable integrity, world-class expertise, intelligent, confident, kindness, thoughtfulness, sharp, energetic, attention to detail, assertive, proactive, positive attitude, reliable and dependable. Shawn genuinely cares, with a humble down-to-earth quality of understanding the law and all of its ramifications. I highly recommend Shawn and will look to Shawn first for my landlord tenant legal needs and business requirements.” Consumer Reporter

 

"I have known Shawn Jackson for many years and have always known Shawn to be very ethical. Shawn's knowledge as a business owner and a business attorney is very impressive!" Peggy W.


"Shawn Jackson and his team were our start-ups first legal representation and they helped us get through the difficult early stages by offering support and legal advice that has carried with us throughout. Michael D


There is a level of confidence that Shawn gives you when he begins to address the "problem" with your opposition by logically explaining to your opponent that it is in their best interest to resolve the "problem" peacefully and fairly so that each party feels a sense of victory. G.S.


"Shawn is a beacon of light in times of stress and has been able to bring positive and effective results to situations with a high potential for unresolvable conflict. My sincerest appreciation goes to him." Dawn D.

When I think of someone who will actually listen and try to understand regardless of the time it will take I think of Shawn Jackson.  And when someone asks if I know a lawyer, I say: Shawn Jackson. N.V.


“Whether it is incorporation, company by-laws, key introductions or important business development strategies, Shawn was there from that start and gave our company a significant advantage to succeed." M.D.


“A great attorney is someone who is 

always looking out for your best interest, no matter how hard the situation may be.  Shawn Jackson is that person.  Shawn always provides a full scope of options, new ideas that I never had even thought of, and of course shares which ones are in my best interest.”  D.L.


There is no one else I would like to have working on my behalf than Shawn.  He is a fantastic negotiator and has saved me tens of thousands of dollars.  Hire him now! Dawn L.
