Prior to Mr. Shaw founding Shaw 3 Law Firm (S3LF), Mr. Shaw garnered several quality experiences making him an exceptional lawyer.
He served and worked as a Judicial Law Clerk for the then Honorable Circuit Judge Rodney Smith for the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, Criminal Circuit Court Division. Thereafter, Mr. Shaw became heavily involved in defending and fighting for people’s rights. This led him to explore other avenues of the law such as Immigration Law and Juvenile Dependency Law (CPS Defense).
At the University of North Dakota School of Law, Immigration legal clinic is where Mr. Shaw practiced extensive immigration law as a Student Attorney. There he advocated and helped indigent clients with their asylum cases, work permits, Temporary Protected Status (TPS), Visas, Green Cards and other client specific Immigration legal matters.
Mr. Shaw’s Immigration representation did not end there. Thereafter, he worked at a premier Hollywood, top-ranking, boutique Talent Agency firm. There, he was exposed to the intrinsic value of the entertainment business and the immigration side of it. He successfully helped several clients with Extraordinary Ability or Achievements (O-1 Visas), Business/Tourist Visas (B-1 & B-2 Visas), Student Visas (F-1 Visas), Fiancé Visas, Work Authorization, Advance Parole (Travel Permission), Green Cards and plenty more. Mr. Shaw continues to maintain his strong relationships in the entertainment industry and advise Talent Agents and others as it pertains to Immigration law.
Mr. Shaw’s journey for advocating for his clients did not end there. He wanted to make a greater impact in the world but also help clients whom has been severely disadvantaged by the government. This is where Mr. Shaw developed the passion for Juvenile Dependency Law (CPS Defense).
Mr. Shaw had the privileged opportunity to work at upstanding Juvenile Dependency Law firms, where he trained and developed into an excellent Trial Lawyer, but most importantly a zealous advocate for his clients. This made him highly equipped to handle several juvenile dependency matters including allegations of general neglect, failure to protect, severe physical abuse, substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, untreated mental health, broken bones, head injuries and other traumas regarding children.
Mr. Shaw represented hundreds of parents and relatives against Child Protective Services (CPS) and Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). With Mr. Shaw’s exposure he became acutely aware of the department lack of transparency to parents and relatives. This results in the unlawful taking and removal of children from the parents and relatives when actions were not properly warranted. Mr. Shaw’s goal is to continue to represent clients to the fullest to make sure the government does not take advantage of parents and relatives. His goal is help parents reunify with their children and also fight for relatives to get placements of children in the case. Mr. Shaw is proud to say that he has successfully fought for and protected parents and relative's rights throughout southern California, including but not limited to Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino county.
