Got the Case Dismissed!
OK, don't like to admit it. I was charged with a sex crime that I simply did not commit. Mr. Mills reviewed my case evidence and laughed. Mr. Mills pointed out the weaknesses in the "People's" case and told me that we would need to be prepared to go to trial if I want out of this unfair mess 100%. From the first day forward we prepared with the mental attitude of going to trial. The bad news is that I never got to see Mr. Mills in trial. I was looking forward to the case at trial. The reason that I never got to see Shawn Mills wear his best trial suit, is that 3 days before the trial Mr. Mills got the case dismissed on a speedy trial violation! Sneaky lawyer trick? Yes. But I AM and always wrongfully acused, so why would I care how I got off? He was great! HE KICKED SOME LEGAL ASS and now I am free! Thanks Mr. Shawn Mills, the best dammed criminal defense attorney Monterrey has to offer--Your Happy Client
I Will Never Use Another Lawyer
I was arrested with a DUI, and Shawn was the only lawyer that I called and actually talked to me like I was a human being and not just someone with cash. He kept me informed of every little thing, good and bad. If he was not in the office his assistant was able to help me as well, and always assured me that Shawn would call back, or would even call Shawn while he was in court. If I ever have another situation (I hope I do not), he will be the first one I call, I will never use another lawyer in this town except for him.
I Always refer Clients to Shawn
Mr. Mills lives in the Central Coast area in California while I live in Southern California. When my clients need expert legal representation on the Central coast I always refer them to Shawn. I'm sure my client's will receive GREAT legal representation and results because of the referral, which makes us both look very good! Additionally, Shawn is my go to guy with trial tactics and strategy. His experience, knowledge and outside the box thinking have greatly aided me and my clients. I highly recommend Shawn Mills for all of your legal needs!
Our Family is Highly Grateful to Shawn
Our 18 year old son got really really drunk and got into a stranger's car and told them to get out. He was charged with attempted carjacking. The people in the car took the keys so he could not drive off if he wanted to. Our son was charged with a felony carjacking and resisting arrest charges. He was look looking at many years in state prison, a felony record and a ruined life for one night of being a stupid drunkenn kid. Shawn (he hates Mr. Mills) took our son's case to trial got GOT HIM OFF. Shawn saved our family many of thousands of dollars, but more importantly he spared our son and whole family a lifetime nightmare. Our family is highly grateful to Shawn for his hard work and compassion towards our son and family. We hope to never need his services again, but if your family does you are in good hands. God Bless. A thankful mom and family. Shawn Mills rocked!
