During his time as an around-the-clock caregiver for Henry, a middle-aged man with autism, Shawn realized that his professional calling laid elsewhere– which drove him to become a trial lawyer.
While working with the Pueblo County District Attorney’s Office as a Deputy District Attorney, Shawn was able to extend his nurturing nature towards his clients and their families while simultaneously using his “closer” attitude to try more than 50 jury trials.
After founding Martin Conti Law, Shawn has continued to give back to his community by serving on both the Keating Elementary School redevelopment committee and the Board of Pueblo Diversified Industries (PDI), “a Colorado nonprofit corporation and a strong community resource for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities”.

What is The Trial Lawyers College?
The Trial Lawyers College is a three-week course that teaches lawyers, judges, and jurors to do their part to represent and demand justice for “the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned” that have fallen prey to oppression from corporations or the government.
