Getting Results For Injury Victims Since 1980

Meet Our Staff



Noe was hired by Mr. Robert Marx, Esq., in 2019 as a legal assistant. Noe’s past work experience in the medical field has made her quite familiar with personal injury, as she has worked for treating providers such as Hilo Accident and Industrial Injury Clinic and Hilo Family Health Center – Bay Clinic. In 2014, she helped Dr. Kurt Halverson, DC, open Hilo Pain Clinic and then eventually worked as Dr. John Turner, MD’s medical assistant.

Over the years, Noe has assisted Mr. Marx in settling many automobile accident claims, wrongful death, medical malpractice, slip-and-fall accidents and dog bite cases.

As of November 2021, Noe also wears the cap of being Mr. Marx’s administrative assistant. Needless to say, her capability and flexibility in any and all positions of the firm make her a great and easy person to work with, no matter the situation(s). Her diligence and incredible work ethics make her an asset and a valuable member of The Law Office of Robert Marx. Noe loves her job, and it is clearly evident in her work.

As much as Noe loves and enjoys her job, she is also a wife and mother to her family, which without a doubt always comes first. She enjoys taking her children to the beach, hunting and fishing with her husband and loves nothing more than spending quality time with her family and friends.

Shawn earned a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice, with a minor in business, from CSU, Sacramento. Her postgraduate work is in paralegal studies. She worked as a paralegal in admiralty/maritime law in San Francisco before coming to Hawaii in 2015 and began working at a firm doing civil litigation in Hilo. She stayed at that firm until 2021, then left that firm when she was given the opportunity to come to work for Bob.

Shawn is active in the community. She is the chairperson for the board of registration, Hawaii Island – Office of Elections; president of her car club (MBCA-HI Section); a trained and certified Mercedes-Benz concourse car show judge; a 4-H dog care and training leader; and lastly, she has served on many committees within my homeowners’ association.

She is a grandmother of three and a great grandmother of two, as well as a doggie mom to two small, four-legged babies! Cooking, baking and gardening are her passions.
