Review Shannon Smith

    Hired Attorney

    Great lawyer, and a competent, fair, and remarkable defence

    Shannon Smith helped my 18 year old nephew navigate sexual conduct charges against him. He was facing serious charges that would have resulted in significant prison time and a listing on the sexual offender registry for life. The legal process was comprehensive, assertive, and thoughtful. The judge presiding over the case was unaware of recent changes in the law reading youths and the implementation of the Romeo and Juliet statutes. Shannon was matter of fact and deftly guided the judge and prosecution with her excellent preparation for the case and due diligence. She saved our boy from an onerous sentence and a lifetime of stigmatization. I highly recommend Shannon's services, and completely respect the work she undertakes in bringing a fair end to the charges individuals face for youthful indiscretion. May she continue to have a remarkable career and I wish her the very best.

    Case Dismissed = Shannon Smith

    From the first day I met Shannon I knew she was the best fit for my case. Not only was she polite, courteous, and direct but she was a great listener. I met with Shannon after I had a preliminary examination with the attorney I hired prior to meeting Shannon. The first attorneys approach was to not draw attention to my case so that the prosecutor would not work on it. This was not the approach I wanted or needed. After realizing I was dealing with a lazy, know it all, I went on the hunt for a replacement. Upon my initial meeting with Shannon I knew right away she was the right attorney for me and my case, I retained Shannon the next day.
    Being wrongfully accused I needed an attorney that would educate the prosecutor on the facts of the case so that they could see all of the missing pieces and start to see right through to the truth. Shannon did a great deal of research including meeting with witnesses on the prosecutions side. Shannon also took the time to get to know my family and I. Shannon was more like a best friend that would do anything to help out her best friend or family member. This strategy proved true once we got closer to the trial date. Shannon filed many motions and had several conversation exchanges with the prosecution. This prompted the prosecutor to meet with his witnesses again and ultimately dismiss the case.
    It was clear the prosecutor saw through the false allegations and upheld the law by his action of dismissing the case.
    I could write a book about Shannon! But in closing I’ll say this: Shannon Smith is a “real person” who really cares about her clients and the law. She is respectful and one of the smartest people I have met in my life. She knows the law well and I learned so much from her. Shannon and I worked closely, we talked at least 5 days a week. She was NEVER too busy to talk with me. All of this adds up to not only the best attorney in my opinion, but a genuine person as well.

    Took the Time

    Shannon called me on one of her busy days when she did not know me and took the time to introduce herself and listen. She then followed up with a 50 minute facetime interview over the phone and listened and gave her thoughts on a report she asked to review. Shannon took the time to reach out and discuss her thoughts on a case and did so on a weekend. That shows that she cares and is motivated to be knowledgeable about subject matter. I highly recommend talking to her for any needs you have for an attorney for her specialties.

    AMAZING! This is what you call a true dedicated laywer!

    Shannon is an amazing person who really isn't bias, she actually want to find and figure out the whole story before making a decision. A family member was accused of molesting a friend of mine, Shannon right on the spot investigated why this person would say such a thing; thus, figuring out why my family member could not have done this. She really figures out the physiologic influence of the person. This case didn't even go to court! She handled it so well that the prosecutor didn't take it to court. She really is different unlike other lawyers, Shannon devotes her quality time and interests in the case! Words can not describe how dedicated this person is!!!!!!

    Dedicated and energetic

    Shannon is dedicated and energetic. She literally saved my son's life after he was falsely accused of sexually molesting a young girl. To see her present her final argument was absolutely riveting. She is so dedicated, intelligent and energetic. I'm so glad she was our family's choice. I don't think anyone else could have done such an exemplary job.

    Super lawyer / Super person

    Once we hired this amazing person, Shannon Smith to represent my sons case that had media attention and serious charges filed against him she quickly put her ego aside and hired another super attorney by name of Cheryl Carpenter and worked together professionally and diligently to save my son from a long term prison time. My son got only one year jail time and was not placed on a sex offenders list or have any record of the charge if he completes his probation for the next three years. i can honestly tell you don't look any further than these two attorneys, together they saved my loved one to the best of their ability. Both delivered what they projected to happen with the case and the outcome in my opinion was more than a miracle. They knew how to handle the prosecutor, their approach was realistic and not a push over considering what my son was charged with. i will not be able to repay these two woman with my kindest words, but i can say they will always be in my prayers for as long as i live and i wish both of them to continue to save others to put their clients' life's back together.

    My brothers case

    My brother faced false allegations of CSC, he had paid a retainer to a criminal defense attorney. Had we not researched & had the fortune to meet & talk with Shannon Smith in the timely manner that we did, I KNOW my brother would be in prison for something he didn't do. Her professional knowledge is impressive & thorough.
