I have know Shannod practially all of my life and have kept in touch over the years as good friends do. About a year and a half ago I was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. ( I write suspicion because they got me while I was eating a cheeseburger at a local restaurant ) The Petaluma police were nice enough to haul me in and tow my car. When the police finally let me use the telephone I called Shannon. He was lightening fast and went way out of the normal scope of Attorney Client service. He put up the cash for my bail and came to the holding station in the middle of the night. Shannon then followed up with DMV to secure my driver liscense and simultainously referred me to a local DUI specialist attorney..... Thanks to Shannon Dean, I have a new found faith in humanity! Shannon continues to be of service to both me and my buisness affiliates in Northern California and although we do not call him in the middle of the night, I assure you he is the First Attorney we call period.
