Shawn practices environmental and natural resources law and strategy. She specializes in Clean Water Act (CWA), Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act, Endangered Species Act (ESA), Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), and National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) permitting, as well as the preparation of environmental documents under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
