Shawn Long concentrates his creditor's rights and bankruptcy practice on the needs of banks, credit unions, businesses, and municipal clients. He has handled hundreds of cases in bankruptcy and state courts, representing secured and unsecured creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, commercial workouts, confessed judgments, foreclosures, collections, and repossessions. Shawn has recovered millions of dollars for national, regional, and local creditors and has developed a particular expertise in locating and seizing collateral and other assets in connection with replevins and judgment executions. His experience enforcing the rights of creditors through court proceedings enables Shawn to effectively negotiate on behalf of his clients, often obtaining the desired results before going to court. In addition to advising clients in reactive situations, Shawn provides proactive counsel to clients in their efforts to establish and maintain improved credit policies and collections procedures.

Shawn also focuses his practice in the areas of litigation and real estate, and he represents various business, higher education, municipal and individual clients in disputes involving commercial contracts, construction, mechanics' liens, leases, fraud, title matters, and zoning. His approach to litigation, whether representing a large business or an individual, is outcome-based and combines common sense with a mature, businesslike style and, when necessary to achieve his clients' goals, an aggressive edge. Shawn believes that litigation is about accomplishing the mission for the client, rather than competing egos among lawyers.

Before becoming a lawyer, Shawn served six years in the United States Marine Corps, followed by four years as a counselor in the juvenile justice system.
