Attorney Shaunna L. Browne
Attorney Shaunna L. Browne was born and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. After graduating from Memorial High School she attended the University of New Hampshire in Durham and then transferred to Notre Dame College where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Paralegal Studies.
Attorney Browne's first law related employment opportunity occurred when she began working as a Court Assistant with the Hillsborough County Probate Court. She was then hired as a real estate paralegal for a national firm that concentrated in the areas of bankruptcy, foreclosure, and evictions.
In 1995, Attorney Browne graduated from Notre Dame College and began law school at New England School of Law, in Boston, Massachusetts. During her law school career, Attorney Browne worked as a family law paralegal for a sole practitioner who operates a successful family law practice in Manchester. After four years of working full time and commuting to Boston three evenings a week, Attorney Browne graduated and was subsequently admitted to the New Hampshire Bar.
Upon her admission to the New Hampshire Bar, Attorney Browne began practicing as an associate attorney, primarily in the area of family law. She has found that family law is a varied and dynamic area of practice. She is very aware of the emotionally charged atmosphere that family law matters create and is accustomed to dealing with a variety of minor and major "emergency" situations. She has litigated very complex and difficult divorce, custody and abuse and neglect matters and has strived to utilize her years of training and education to obtain the positive results every client deserves.
Almost immediately after becoming an attorney, Attorney Browne joined Keefe Law Offices as an associate attorney. In March of 2002, after approximately one and a half years with Keefe Law Offices, Attorney Browne proved her ability and dedication and was recognized by being made a partner in the firm of Keefe and Browne, P.A. While a partner with Keefe and Browne, P.A. Attorney Browne acted as co-counsel in criminal defense work for felony level crimes and personal injury matters. She has found that work in the criminal and personal injury areas of law has helped her to fine tune her skills as a trial attorney, which has greatly benefited her family law practice and clientele. On July 1, 2012, Attorney Browne opened the Law Office of Shaunna L. Browne, PLLC, where she continues to practice in the area of Family Law.
Attorney Browne is a member of the New Hampshire Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the Manchester Bar Association. She serves on the New Hampshire Bar Association's Cooperation with the Court committee, the Family Law Section's Rules Committee and on the Executive Committee for the Manchester Bar Association.
She currently resides in Hooksett, New Hampshire with her husband, Timothy Dwyer and is the step-mother to her husband's son. She values the time she spends with her family and she enjoys a wide variety of activities, which includes volunteer work, skiing, travel, boating, and reading. She brings a high level of enthusiasm, understanding and knowledge to the practice of family law and enjoys working with clients so as to make their foray into the legal arena as stress free as possible. She utilizes her skills and expertise to get the results that her clients desire and deserve.
