My name is Shawn Roberts and I am an attorney. I live in Edmond, OK with my wife Amy, our two children Sam (10) and David (2) and our
12 year old bichon frise, Molly [Molly passed in April 2012 at the age of 13 - RIP Molly].
I grew up in a tiny town, Lewiston, Idaho about 3 hours south of the Canadian border. Lewiston is a good 2 hour drive from nowhere. I went to college at the University of Idaho in Moscow (not the one in Russia, but that meant more during the Cold War).
I came to Oklahoma for the first time in August 1995 to go to law school at Oklahoma City University School of Law. I love Oklahoma, I met my wife here and I don’t want to live anywhere else. I particularly like how the OKC Metro has a many of the big-city amenities without all of the big-city issues. I wrote about my thoughts on Oklahoma in this post: Because of Oklahoma City’s vision, I see things unimaginable
I have practiced law for 13 years. I worked at several law firms and then started my own law firm which for lack of creative inspiration is called “Shawn J. Roberts, P.C.” Although I have experience in many different types of law, I have tried (albeit not always successfully) to limit my practice to two areas:
- Small Businesses (contract, employment issues, litigation, etc . . .)
- Oklahoma Estate Planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorneys).
I am a socially awkward individual which is a challenge in a profession that requires building strong relationships.
However, I am a good attorney because I am detail-oriented, responsible and responsive: You can call or email me and I will get back to you. When you hire me to do something, it gets done, on time. Count on it.
I have tried to bridge the gap in my relationship-building skills by sharing about what I do on this blog: you can read my posts on law, legal issues and technology or listen to the podcast series I did on estate planning — Estate Planning Demystified.
