Mr Locke handled business! He got my 4 year felony deferred probation terminated 1 1/2 years early. Very nice and professional. Thank you again Mr Locke.

I recently met with Shannon for a consultation regarding possible charges in a criminal case. During the consultation he proved to be extremely knowledgable regarding the case in question. He laid out my options, and gave me great advice that has proved invaluable in my current situation. When I received information about a second possible charge, I stopped by his office to schedule another appt for a consultation. He was good enough to meet with me on the spot. He again laid out my options and offered to represent me should any charges be filed. If you find yourself in need of legal advice, you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with Mr. Locke.

Mr Locke was the best Attorney I could have had for my problem. He took the time to explain my options. He also made sure I understood what it was I needed to do. He never once talked down to me .I live in Illinois and was a professional truck driver when it happened. I went online to find a lawyer and of all the responses I got Locke was the only one that made me feel confident about getting a good outcome.He goes above and beyond for his clients. He has an excellent team of associates working with him and they are all wonderful and if need be I would use their services in a heartbeat. If you want someone who will fight for YOU, then Shannon Locke and his crew are the ones for you. They are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

So, my son got himself arrested for some drug stuff and also a DWI. He asks me for some money and I give it to him and I find out what it is for only later. It was for a lawyer. I want to meet this guy and I go over thinking that my kid had gotten shaken down. So we all go in for an appointment. First things first, the appointment was easy to get. His staff is really nice. I have dealt with a lot of professionals and doctors and such and it is always hard to get in. Not here. They set me up for latter that week. Then, we go in and he talks to my kid like he's a grown man. He's like do this this and this. And he does, and then we find out the case has gotten dismissed. What a blessing! I was really impressed. He saw how worried I was and he gave me his cell phone. I don't know if he does that for everyone but I was happy.

I was on vacation in San Antonio and was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor offense which was transferred over to California my home state. I was put on parole in California by the Interstate Commission for a misdemeanor offense I committed in Texas. (Don't ask me how this happened; I am still trying to figure it out myself!) I was incarcerated in California for violating one of the conditions of parole. Mr. Locke was contacted by my wife because I was going to be extradited back to Texas. Not only did Mr. Locke get me out from jail,he also helped me resolve my case in Texas. My wife and I were made felt like we were his only clients. He always kept us in the loop of everything that was occurring in our case. There was never a moment that we felt being neglected or felt like he did not care......he did just the opposite. We would receive phone calls from Shannon at all hours of the day, even on Saturdays and Sundays, just to ask how we are doing. Now that's a first. There is no doubt in our minds Mr. Locke will do the same for you!!!

I was in the need of a attorney for my case. I ran across several attorneys who I was not pleased with. I am glad that I choose Mr. Locke. He took the time to make sure that I understood everything before he moved on to something else. He is patience and he also communicates with you never leaving you in the dark. He will make sure that he responds to you either by phone or email promptly even in the weekend and made me feel much better about the matter at hand. Another thing I like about attorney is that he will not mislead you. He is very knowledgeable and has already gone farther than any other lawyer to look over my case and till me exactly what my options are. There is no guesswork with this attorney and I like that ! .
I highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a dependable attorney.
Finally, he represented me excellently in court to get the desired result and I am very pleased and thankful for all his time and effort in for my case, which had a positive outcome.

I had a very high breath test and I thought I was really screwed. I was ready to take a deal but I looked ok on the video. When I went to see Mr. Locke I told him I wanted to go to school and get licensed by the State. I didn't want to go to jail but I thought I would get convicted. He did an awesome job at my jury trial and we won. What a relief! I was sooo happy! He's totally worth it and we talked everything through. He did every thing he said he was going to do.

Mr.Locke was very patient, informative, and reliable at all times i would & will recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and trustworthy attorney. Believe me when I say that I am not the easiest person to get along with because I think that i know everything but in this case Mr. Locke was still by my side and for that I thank you for all of your hard work and patience.

Shannon was the best choice I made as far as having a lawyer. I am normally a good judge of character,but Shannon exceeded my expectaions. He was very knowledgeable on handling my case. He also seem to have a good team of assistants behind him. Including the front desk! I didn`t have to keep calling to find out updates which really meant a lot to me. Either his team or Shannon himself kept me inform completely on my court case. I also found Shannon to be a good listener, which is very important in handling any case. Especially a case that was as serious as mine! I truly feel that Shannon was worth investing in. He gave alternative counsel, which made me feel like it was my choice,but he had my best interested in mind. I knew Snannon Locke was the best choice when I saw that even before I made it into his office to speak with him, he researched some things about my case already. And as far as contacting my character witness, I never had to remind him to do so. His team was right on top of it. With Shannons help, I`m sitting here at my desk in my bedroom. And not behind bars!
I couldn`t think of a better attorney! I highly recommend using his services!
Sincerely speaking with great gratidude,

I want to thank Mr. Shannon Locke for representing me on my case of aggravated assault with seriously bodily injury it was a very tough case. I was kind of skeptical at first because Mr. Locke was up against 3 prosecutors. But when I saw him in action it was then that I realize that I had made the right choice of choosing him as my attorney. He worked and fought very hard to win my case. He is compassionate, helpful & and a very caring attorney, I have been in the medical field for 17 years and can't have a felony on my record. Thanks to Mr. Locke I won't have one, he won my case and it was dismissed, I would highly recommend him because he is a good attorney & a very professional one too. Thank you Mr. Locke and god blessed me with you. You are an angel.

I consulted with Mr. Lock and I must say that I was amazed at his compassion and interest in helping. He analyzed the situation in depth and determined a course of action based on the details provided. I was very comfortable throughout and never felt pressured to "choose" him on the spot. I would recommend this courteous professional to anyone who requires an analytical and caring attorney.

I was charged with aggravated assault. Mr. Locke worked hard and got my case dismissed. I am a professional who could not have a felony on my record. Now, I do not have to worry about being on probation. I am thankful that Mr. Locke took my case. He always answered his phone and his staff was great.
