From one attorney to another, she is exceptional
I hired Attorney McCoy to handle a very sensitive and urgent matter involving guardianship of a relative. I do not live in North Carolina and needed an attorney I could trust and who was responsive, dependable, empathetic, and professional. I got all that and more from Attorney McCoy. I reached out to her at 10:00 pm in the evening and she had responded by 6:00 am the next day. She handled the matter in a timely function and I was very pleased with the results. She exceeded my expectations and I would hire her again.

Awesome Attorney
Attorney McCoy is the epitome of a professional client-focused attorney. She and her staff work hard to provide first-class service and find the best legal solution possible for her clients. I live outside of the state where she practices. But, the way she handled my case made me feel as if I were there with her in court and in her office every day. She kept me involved in every stage of my case, explained all of my legal options in a way that was understandable, and always consulted with me before proceeding down a particular legal avenue. Whenever I had to leave her a voicemail or email message I could always count on a timely response and a relevant answer to my question. Not to mention, her fees were significantly less than other attorneys that I had consulted with prior to finding her. My case has not yet been finalized, but I am 110% positive that it will be completed with the most favorable outcome due to Atty McCoy’s diligence. I could not have asked for a better attorney, and I have already recommended her to others.

My experience with attorney Shawndria Monique McCoy
I wanted a lawyer to defend my son and I was given four different names. I picked Ms. Shawndria simply because the person who referred me to her said she was very aggressive. When I met her, she was concern about my son and she acted like a mother for my son as well. She would call him to give him advices on how he should carry himself in order to stay out of trouble and I am very happy with what she did. Her wisdom words to my son produced great results: he is a different person and determined to do the right thing. I have my son back and I am happy. Thank you attorney Shawndria!

Excellent Attorney-She will fight for you!
From the moment I spoke to Attorney McCoy I could tell she was totally invested in my best interest in the case. The way she took the time to explain each stage and the possible outcomes made me feel like I was a part of the process from beginning to end. I've never experienced that with any other lawyer! You can tell she knows her field inside and out and, in my case, helped make the seemingly impossible-POSSIBLE! I had a high speed ticket in a work zone that I just knew would result in literally hundreds of dollars more for insurance and points. She was totally honest and told me what the best possible outcomes were, but she over delivered! She was able to get a wonderful outcome for me. I thank the heavens for pointing me in her direction. I would not recommend anyone else. She has my vote anytime and I'll be sure to refer her to friends, family, or anyone in need of excellent representation. A true hidden gem in her field.

Ms. McCoy has been my legal consult even before she finished law school. She has always provided me with the most accurate information and advice needed to move forward with legal issues encountered. She has always helped my family successfully handle speeding tickets, civil lawsuits, having old charges removed from records, etc. She will place 110% behind any case she is given regardless of the challenge. You will not be making a mistake by soliciting her services.

NC Speeding Ticket Case
I had a number of attorney's from the Raleigh, NC area contact me concerning my ticket that I received. When I spoke to Attorney McCoy she seemed genuinely concerned about my desire to handle this ticket and also explained my options and the applicable laws in a way that I could easily understand. I felt relieved and confident that the situation was being handled well. After my case went to court I received a letter from Attorney McCoy detailing the process. I highly recommend her services to others.

Traffic Citation
Ms. McCoy did a great job representing me in court for my traffic citation. I am an attorney as well but due to work I was unable to make it to court. Ms. McCoy was able to get my citation reduced from 18 over to 9 over and also got my fine waived. I only had to pay court costs. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with a traffic issue.
