Shawn Salehieh is a dedicated and determined criminal law attorney who will fight for your rights. He is conversant in several languages including Spanish, French, Italian and Farsi. He was born in Iran and came to the United States with his family as a child. In 1993, he graduated from McGeorge Law School and was admitted to the California Bar. Mr. Salehieh feels that the most extraordinary aspect of law practice in the United States is the jury system. "Every time I have a jury trial, I realize how fortunate we are to live here in the United States. Apart from the fact that in many countries around the world there is no freedom of expression, no freedom after expression, and no due process, there is seldom the privilege of having your day in court." Shawn Salehieh strongly believes in giving back to the community. Winner of over a dozen awards for his pro bono activities over the years, he has also been a regular attorney volunteer for the Bar Association of San Franciscos Volunteer Legal Services Program, its Legal Advice and Referral Clinic, and San Franciscos Project Homeless Connect. When he is not managing his successful criminal law practice and is between pro bono events, he is usually sailing on San Francisco Bay on a friends boat or walking Jasper, his springer spaniel in various San Francisco parks.
