Law Office of Shannon DeWall, PLLC
Sean’s personal mission is to assist individuals with special needs and their families to prepare for and achieve a better life experience. Being born legally blind and understanding the hardship of not being appropriately supported early in life, Sean spent his academic and professional career unraveling the multi-faceted aspects of life with a disability. It is through his hard work, dedication, and personal experience which makes Sean your greatest ally in designing and implementing a comprehensive strategic plan for you and your loved one.
Beyond a great plan, Sean understands the strain living with or caring for someone with a disability or special needs may bring. It is Sean’s belief that no matter how great a strategic plan may be, the benefits it can provide may not be realized without acceptance, hope and motivation. With this understanding in mind, Sean approaches each client interaction with patience, encouragement, and reassurance that great things are possible for you and your loved one.
Sean is a licensed attorney in Illinois and Michigan, earned his law degree and Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Sean is also a proud Shamrock, graduating from Detroit Catholic Central.
