Today we’d like to introduce you to Shawn Karimian.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Shawn. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
When I was in 3rd grade, I knew I wanted to be lawyer. One day, I showed up to school in a suit and tie (not on a picture day). The teacher, being confused, asked me why I was dressed up. I specifically remember saying to her, “I’m a lawyer today”. From that day on, I had a steadfast belief that I would become an attorney someday. Fast forwarding from then, 20+ years later, I finally earned the title of Attorney.
I graduated from law school in 2010 with a J. D. degree and a certification in Intellectual Property. I began my legal career working in criminal defense appellate matters and contract review in 2009. I added to my legal experience while working in areas ranging from unfair debt collection cases to personal injury claims. I also independently worked with a number of attorneys and businesses in various matters such as contract drafting and review, negotiation, and various corporate business matters.
When I became officially licensed, I immediately started my own practice. I always envisioned myself being a modern type of attorney, one that is more relatable and understanding of clients, their issues, and their life situations. Often times, the human factor gets lost in the procedure of the work. Clients tend to become file numbers and cease to be treated and looked at like individuals in the midst of a difficult time. I wanted a firm that encompassed that belief.
Based on this vision, I founded the Karimian Law Group on the principle that all clients are individually valued and of importance. I wanted a law firm where all clients could have trust, faith, and confidence in their legal matter and legal representation. Based on this vision and principle, I have been able to successfully advocate for the rights of clients while continuing to maintain empathy and understanding.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I can’t say that starting your own law practice from scratch is a smooth road. It definitely presented a lot of hurdles and bumps along the way. Some of the struggles along the way for me were being able to market, gain clientele, choosing the exact niche’ I wanted to practice in, cash flow and capital for all of the office and marketing campaign to name a few.
It was certainly a challenge to get to the point we are at today, however, each challenge presented a new lesson to be learned. Often times, through the struggle and hustle, different opportunities and networks began to open for me. It only requires a belief in yourself, your vision, and the desired goal.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memories from childhood is my time spent growing up with my family, loved ones, and friends. I also loved playing sports and being on teams where I was able to create camaraderie and friendships through a common passion.
