also known as Shannon Briley-Holmes
I strive to provide more of a human element to the legal profession than many attorneys. I give every client my cell phone number and provide a level of acessibility and empathy in your legal situation that you will not be charged for. When the situation calls for it, I fight for my clients as if they are members of my own family. Sometimes, I have to make my clients understand that the situation may require an approach that calls for comprimise and negotiation. The circumstances and governing law control every unique situation, and no two stories are exactly alike. Whether you need a fighter or a peace maker, I can balance both roles.
I also believe that legal services should be attainable for everyone. It is an investment, but too often attorneys quote fees that would make wealthy individuals cringe. I strive to work with people within their budget to achieve a result that will improve their lives.
My background includes four years as a United States Marine, six years as an Atlanta Police Officer, and I am currently a criminal defense attorney and the mother of 4 energetic children.
