I was seeking a Protection From Abuse Order regarding an Assault in February of 2016. Shannon Kanavy Represented Me and The Case surrounding the Attack. These were my reasons for seeking a Protection From Abuse Order. I supplied Shannon Kanavy with a "Police Report" and "Summary Trial Documents" Substantiating My Claims of the Abuse I was seeking Protection for. In the Justice Center that morning she was communicating with the Attorney the Defendant was assigned and without my knowledge worked out a very Minor Protection of only Six Months. I explained to Shannon Kanavy that the Six Month Order was Unacceptable. She did "Nothing" to Increase the Order. The only matter that she was concerned with was Getting the Hearing done with and move on. Her Lack of Interest in my case and obvious Bother for her to be Representing me showed in her Lack of pursuing a Longer Order Of Protection. She could see that I was Extremely Frightened and Concerned for Myself and my Family due to the Attack the defendant was Charged with in February. She wanted to get out of the Courtroom that day and getting as many Clients as she could Attach to her Record seemed to be her Only Agenda. Not taking care of Representing me. Her Behavior was Extremely Disturbing as well. While in the Courtroom I had a concern. I turned to her "Quietly" and asked the question I had and she screamed so loud that the entire courtroom turned to look at us. She informed me that while the Judge was speaking it was Inappropriate to talk. I did not know this. She knew I was already Uncomfortable that morning and could have showed some Compassion for my position. How Professional was this I thought. If it was out of line for me to address her verbally in the Courtroom that morning than it should have been just as Inappropriate for Her to Lash Out At A Client. Do your Due Diligence when hiring Shannon Kanavy. She is only out to make her monies, not Protect you or your Interests.

I hired Shannon to handle my custody case. As a dad, I was concerned that the legal system would not value my role in my children's lives. Shannon fought for my rights to be a full-time father. She continually taught me the legal process so that I could make the best decisions for my family.
