Ms. Shannon has been
practicing law for over 20 years. She began her legal
career in private practice, representing both
individuals and businesses in civil litigation, real
property and probate matters for a number of years. She
then served as in-house counsel for a financial
institution for six years. Her responsibilities there
included representation of the institution in civil
litigation, drafting contracts and loan documents,
rendering legal advice on varied issues, as well as the
review and interpretation of regulations, statutes,
contracts and other documents. She then returned to
private practice and established her own firm. She
maintains a general civil practice, and has been
qualified by the Florida Supreme Court as an arbitrator,
and certified by the Florida Supreme Court to serve as a
County Court Mediator and Circuit Court Mediator
throughout the state of Florida. She is also certified to serve as a mediator for federal lawsuits.
Her interest in mediation began when she realized that
people were much better off when they settled their
disputes prior to litigation or at the beginning stage
of the litigation -- before they had spent substantial
sums in costs and attorneys fees. She realized that the
parties further benefited from a successful mediation
because, with the dispute resolved, they could move
forward with their life and spend their time on more
rewarding endeavors. She enjoys meeting people and
assisting them in resolving their disputes.
She currently offers mediation services to both
individuals who are represented by an attorney and to
those individuals who desire to resolve their dispute
without an attorney’s assistance. Mediations can take
place at her office or at another mutually-convenient
Florida Supreme Court certified circuit and county mediator
our office to schedule a conference or contact us below.
