Attorney Shawn P. Eyestone
Attorney Shawn Eyestone enjoys spending as much time as possible with his family. He loves hiking, biking, kayaking, and traveling. He is proud to have been to 49 of the 50 states, and he has lots of interesting stories about taking road trips with the whole family to California, Florida, New York, Washington, D.C., and everywhere in between (except Alaska, that’s still on his bucket list).
He also comes from a long line of widows and has tried from an early age to make the best of his short time on this earth. His mother became a widow when she was 63, his grandmother became a widow when she was 52, and his great-grandmother became a widow when she was 30. His mother and grandmother have shown him first hand the basic needs of those left behind when a loved one dies and the importance of living life fully. All of this has given Shawn a passion for ensuring that estate plans actually work for widows and other heirs.
Attorney Shawn Eyestone’s work has greatly benefited numerous families over the years, and, as a result, he has been awarded the highest ratings offered by AVVO and Martindale-Hubbell, two of the most respected organizations that rate attorneys. He was a regular co-host of a local estate planning radio program and has been a regular contributor to other local media outlets.
Shawn earned his law degree from Wayne State University Law School after first graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the Lee Honors College of Western Michigan University. Following law school, Shawn worked as an attorney in the estate planning, and business law practice groups of West Michigan and Detroit-area law firms, gaining valuable experience and a very loyal client-following.
Shawn is actively involved with WealthCounsel, a nationwide consortium of over 2,300 of the top estate planning and business attorneys in the country. He is also a member of the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils, the Western Michigan Estate Planning Council, and the State Bar of Michigan, where he has been selected to serve on several state-wide committees. Shawn has served the community in many roles, including Director of the Grandville-Jenison Chamber of Commerce, President of the Grand Rapids Lions Club, Deacon at his church, coach with Grandville AYSO, and president of SLD Read.
