4.5 stars 8 totalReview Shannon Hall
My case was an uphill battle from the start. I lived in a different state, and with a very unique custody situation. Shannon was the 3rd attorney I hired for this, and she exceeded my expectations at every corner. I had been a target parent of Parental Alienation, and had been dealing with a parent who tried to refuse parenting time and contact as much as possible. Shannon never backed down, and did everything she could to make sure I could stay in contact with my child. Initially, my ex was awarded custody... I feel that Shannon represented me better than any other attorney could have, however the odds were stacked against me so I don't fault her for that. Less than a year after the judgment, Shannon was able to get a post-judgment modification of custody, which awarded me custody. This was largely in part to her diligence and ability to always be proactive with my case. Post modification, my ex has attempted several times to sneak into court (without informing me properly) in an effort to get emergency custody, only to be denied each time, thanks to Shannon's hard work and efficiency.
Shannon is incredibly thorough, very detail-oriented, and can handle herself in the courtroom very well. She is very knowledgeable about family law. She does not beat around the bush or blow smoke up your you-know-what - she is straight-forward and honest with her clients (a trait that's hard to find in many attorneys). She is also very skilled at thinking outside the box, which is what was needed in my case. I highly recommend her!
I hired Shannon Hall as my lawyer to fight for sole custody of my daughter. I had done my research and a friend had recommended this lawyer to me and I am so glad she did. Shannon was absolutely wonderful... Not only did she do everything possible to help me with my case, she went above and beyond all of my greatest expectations. I could NOT have asked for a better lawyer; she answerered every question I had and if she didn't know the answer, she found it for me. Not only was Shannon prompt and got things done much faster than expected, but she took the time to make sure that I was happy in every aspect of my case. She made me feel like I was her first priority and she fought hard to make sure that I received everything I asked for from the courts and the judge... And I did! I couldn't believe how hard working and professional she was; I honestly don't think I would've won my case, had it not been that Shannon Hall was representing me and went the extra mile in everything I asked her to do. I felt appreciated and validated and I would strongly recommend her for anyone who is looking for a lawyer who is going to fight for you until you get everything you want and then some. Couldn't be happier with this lawyer. Hands down, best attorney/lawyer I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and hiring. Worth every penny!!

Sharon has handled a lot of legal work for me and was always on top of things. She did an amazing job so dealing with tense and emotional situations. I went through a rough divorce with restraining order and custody issues and she always handled me and my emotions well. I would go back to her with anything I need in a heartbeat.

at first she was very attentive and seemed on the ball and quick thinking. then she got focused on the little irrelevent details, and spent hours racking up on little things for example, like a value of a car, instead of focusing on the bigger picture. In the hearing, she refused to ask the questions to the otherside she needed to, saying it wasn't important, and refused to challenge the other side's witnesses lies, instead of discretting them, she kept dropping the ball. When i was on the stand, she forgot to ask questions we discussed. She forgot document copies on day of trial more than once, and asked me in court last minute for them. We lost the case, and before I even knew it she filed a lean on my settlement, not giving me a chance to pay. despite the fact, she was always paid, as requested, and had no reason to file against me without warning. It was bad for my credit, but she didn't care, and just said when I questioned why? Answer, to guarantee she got paid! how does an attorney turn on her client for no reason? she wasn't looking out for me, but for herself. I had written a good review in the begiinning when she took my case, but that was before the case was over. She may be good at custody when she doesn't have a seasoned apponent, but in a heated divorce, when the other side has a strong attorney, she panicked. Also dressing sexy for court didn't impress our judge, or help our case!

Shannon was very professional with her handling of our case. She was aggressive when needed and also very compassionate with the particular circumstances. With her having an office in Salem and Eugene she was more accessible also. She was very knowledgeable in the correct procedures of law (too bad some Judges are not). I would hire Shannon again if we needed a lawyer in Eugene or Salem.

I found Shannon on this Avvo site.
I appreciated her caring and good advise.
I realized, I needed to find new legal representation for my divorce.
I was stuck in a very difficult divorce where my first attorney wasn't able to effectively represent me any longer
Shannon was willing to step in and help me, knowing it wasn't going to be an easy task to take on at this stage.
My only one wish is that I had retained her services, from the beginning, I think my divorce circumstances would not be quite as complicated as they are at the moment. I believe she's on top of things.
I was greatly impressed with Shannon's willingness to take on a case like mine in the middle knowing it wasn't an easy one.
I found her sincere and genuine!
Her communication skills are excellent and refreshing!
I appreciate her upfront honest advice in certain private matters, when my previous attorney had seemed indifferent.
I also appreciate that she pays attention to what I am saying.
And I had a lot to say, to be able to bring her up to speed on a messy divorce.
She was very attentive!
Coming into a case in the middle and playing catch up is no easy task, but this did not deter Shannon.
I also found her realistic, and straight forward, while delivering her message in a caring kind manner.
Even though the divorce is particularly messy due to my husband's bad behavior, I finally feel confident that someone else is looking out for me, and really cares to protect my interests!
I left Shannon's office feeling a huge weight lifted off my shoulders today, knowing she'd do everything she can to help me.
If you get the opportunity to read this Shannon, thank you!
If you are looking for an attorney who's cares about her clients, please give Shannon a call. I highly recommend her.
You'll find her kind, down to earth sincerity and genuine effort, very refreshing too!
