Attorney Shawn B. Daniels has been practicing law for over 30 years. Shawn is licensed to practice law in Arkansas and Oklahoma. He began his legal career in 1991 in Ardmore, Oklahoma, after attending law school at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Shawn married into a long-time Fayetteville family, so it was only a matter of time before Shawn would return to Arkansas to help injured Arkansans. He soon became a partner in a prominent Arkansas law firm before ultimately managing Hare Wynn’s Fayetteville office in Fayetteville for 5 years. In 2018, Shawn opened Daniels Law Firm.
Shawn’s passion is helping families through some of life’s most difficult situations. He has successfully represented families in personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, construction site, and medical malpractice cases for more than two decades. He has represented families throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma, and beyond and has served as lead counsel in a number of multimillion-dollar recoveries. Shawn is motivated by the circumstances and needs of his clients, where many have lost loved ones or suffered a terrible tragedy. In many legal fights, the stakes are high. Shawn “takes it personally” — if you’ve been hurt or something tragic has happened, Shawn is the lawyer you want in your corner.
Shawn has been married to his wife, Dana, since 1991. They are parents to 3 grown children and recently became grandparents. Shawn is heavily involved in the community. From coaching his children’s sports teams to serving as an elder in their Church to serving on the board of directors of a charitable foundation, Shawn believes in giving back.
Shawn earned his undergraduate degree from Kansas State and his law degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law. His education in Fayetteville made quite an impact on Shawn, and he is thankful to now serve the people of Fayetteville and the surrounding areas. Shawn is licensed and practices in both Arkansas and Oklahoma.
