LITIGATION

Efficient representation delivered with tenacity, meticulous preparation and a keen dedication to detail.  When it appears the only winners in litigation will be the lawyers, Shannon works to find ways to resolve disagreements before lawsuit escalation. She assists clients in making smart decisions designed to protect their business and personal interests and focuses on resolutions to prevent the drain on financial and human resources that can accompany extended litigation.   When an early amicable resolution is not viable and disagreements have deteriorated into a lawsuit, you need an advocate who not only understands the law, but who will aggressively represent you while also prioritizing your business and personal objectives. Shannon vigorously represents clients in court while maintaining an approach that aims to keep litigation as efficient as possible.  With nearly twenty years of litigation experience in courtrooms in various jurisdictions across the country, she knows zealous advocacy and maximizes efficient representation.
