Evaluating the Potential Impact of a Proposed Landfill
By Shawn E. Wilson, MAI

“Shawn Wilson and I worked together for many years and I found her to be extremely honest and an appraiser of high integrity.  Her intelligence is unsurpassed.”

– Richard G. Klusza, MAI, SRA

“Shawn Wilson’s understanding of and insight into the litigation process exceeds that of most of the experts I have worked with over the years. Her skill as a witness, in both the deposition and trial settings, is exemplary. In a post-trial conversation with jurors, several of the panelists were quite complimentary of Shawn. Whether in a litigation setting or otherwise, I can, without qualification, recommend Shawn Wilson as an expert in real estate valuation.”
