Multiple charges were reduced and dropped relating to a family violation accusation against the client. His girlfriend claimed that he threatened her with a machete and damaged her property. Client also had immigration issues, so Erin was able to reduce the Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon charge to a deadly conduct and the County Attorney dismissed the Criminal Mischief misdemeanor.



I highly recommend Erin. Known her for many years. She has always been quick to respond, diligent and thorough when offering legal advice. She’s helped our family out on several occasions when needing representation. Great attorney to work with!

Erin Shinn is a professional, highly competent, low key individual who practices law with integrity and provides quality service to her clients as a matter of principle. Erin is good at explaining the law as it applies, possible outcomes, asking for facts without judgement, collaborating to make certain she and her client have the same goal, communicating what to expect, not wasting time, coming well prepared for phone calls, conference, and court; and using a low key style which worked well with witnesses and that the jury liked, and for me, delivered a very successful outcome.There are many situations in which the outcome isn’t going to be different no matter who the attorney is because the facts are what they are and all you can hope to do is protect your rights and minimize the damage. But when intelligence, knowledge, preparation, and effectiveness operating within the courthouse CAN make a difference in the outcome, it is in your interest to hire Erin and trust her advice.

At the suggestion of a friend, I contacted Erin Shinn to handle an old case out of Travis County that had gotten re-filed. She attentively listened to my issues and provided clear, concise ideas for how to go forth. My calls were always promptly returned and along the way I was kept abreast of any new developments. Erin did not pull any punches about worst case scenarios and assured me that she would fight for the best result. And the best possible result is exactly what she got. I am extraordinarily thankful to have received a suggestion to call Erin Shinn when I was in trouble. Serioulsly. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.
