About me

I am a trial and appellate lawyer who enjoys representing individual people and small businesses, instead of big corporations, government entities or insurance companies. I help people who have been mistreated by their insurance companies or their previous lawyers, or who have been significantly injured by someone else.


I'm not just a lawyer, though. In my spare time, I love watching Seattle sports, being outdoors, reading, and traveling. I live in Redmond with my husband, Dan, and our cat, Hannah.

  • Elizabeth LePley

    It is a compliment to be called a "go to attorney" and Shannon is just that. She is a go to person for all insurance matters. It is fair to say that she is my sounding board and the person I turn to for the gut check. Her knowledge of insurance law is unmatched. She is well respected in the judicial and lawyer community. I look forward to working with her again.
