Law Office Of Shawn P. Sweeney, Esq.
We bring strategy and experience to the careful analysis evidence and multipronged approach to negotiating for the best outcome and attacking the opposing case where negotiation is not enough.
Every effort from the opposition seeks to characterize my clients in the worst light. Defense attorneys are often the only voice advocating for good people who have been accused of a crime. People should not be judged and characterized according to their mistakes; especially when they did not commit the crimes they have been accused of.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We begin with a free phone consultation to determine what the issues are and whether we can provide counsel for the caller's needs. We then schedule an initial meeting to give the client an understanding of the case and prepare a strategy. It is after this initial phone call and meeting that clients across the board report finally being able to feel some control and understanding and let go of the anxiety that accompanies the pressing legal issues they are confronted with.
