Shawn M. Risen, J.D., B.C.S.

An Overview

At Risen & Ryan, we believe that providing love and shelter to a child in need is among the noblest of all acts. That is why, for decades, it has been our passion and great honor to provide the legal guidance and assistance that has brought so many families together. Undertaking an adoption can seem overwhelming, but the help of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney can bring clarity and security to the process. Our firm strives to be that source of clarity and security for our clients throughout the adoption process.

For more than 20 years, Shawn Risen has been unifying parents with their adopted children. Shawn is one of only a small number of Florida attorneys who are Board Certified in the area of Juvenile Law, and he has represented the parental rights of thousands of mothers and fathers living throughout the state. While the substantive law and procedural hurdles inherent in a Florida adoption require a unique understanding of the legal nuances involved, the emotional aspect is overlooked by many legal professionals. Shawn brings both his extensive legal experience and knowledge to every adoption case, but it is his personability and compassion that his clients remember most.
