Shawn is a native son of New Hampshire with deep roots in the North Country.  He was first introduced to municipal law when he joined a general practice firm in Laconia which served a number of municipalities in the Lakes Region.  Upon beginning to represent various towns and cities, he soon realized that this area of practice was more rewarding and interesting than any other sector of the law.  As part of his duties, he dealt with a number of issues for this firm’s municipal clients, by advising at a variety of meetings and appearing before administrative agencies and courts at all levels. 

In 2007, Shawn was posed with the opportunity to join Gardner Fulton & Waugh which would allow him to concentrate exclusively on assisting municipalities with their legal needs.  In addition to providing counsel on many general municipal topics, he spends a great deal of time, in recent years, addressing employment law issues that municipalities often encounter as well as several legal matters involving many of the State’s utility providers.  In fact, Shawn successfully represented a number of municipalities in one of the largest tax appeal cases in New Hampshire’s history brought by the State’s primary electric utility company.  In addition, he has worked with towns and cities on legal issues involved with the sale and siting of utility assets throughout the State.

In his spare time, Shawn enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter which usually involves volunteering/coaching for his daughter’s many sports teams.  He and his family are also avid skiers and try to kayak as much as possible.  Basically, they truly appreciate the type of outdoor activities and lifestyle that New Hampshire offers.
