I was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2002 and began my legal career practicing civil law, mostly handling worker's compensation defense.  In late 2006, my husband and I moved to North Carolina and I was admitted to the North Carolina Bar in 2007.  Since 2007, I have been practicing primarily criminal defense law.  In 2009,  I opened my own frim, The Law Office of Shannon Aldous, P.C., and have continued to enjoy representing criminal clients and assisting them with all of their legal needs.

Speeding Ticket
I wanted to take time and thank Shannon for helping me with my recent speeding ticket. I reached out to Shannon and she quickly responded to my inquiries for her services. Shannon was available via email or text and gave me precise instructions on what she needed me to do. I would highly recommend Shannon to anyone with a traffic violation.

She is worth it.
I hired Shannon Aldous to represent me for a speeding ticket that included reckless driving due to the excess speed which the officer said I was going. Shannon helped me leave the court room with no insurance or driver's license points. I spent less than 15 minutes in the court room in total. The whole experience working with her was a lot less stressful than what I could have been if I did it solo. I had contacted several other lawyers but she seemed the most confident about the outcome we would get with my situation. I highly recommend Shannon.

Super easy and quick process
She did a great job helping me reduce my speeding ticket. It was super cheap and got it done very quickly. All it took was one phone call and she had it all taken care of within two weeks! Definitely recommend using her!!!

super easy process!
Shannon was a tremendous help when my son got his first speeding ticket. She was able to handle everything over the phone and online since we didn't live in the town of the offense. Everything was pretty much taken care of in one phone call and she was able to get it reduced to improper equipment with no adverse effects to our insurance or his license. Would highly recommend her if you find yourself in the same predicament.

Above and beyond
Ms. Aldous is professional, positive and expedient. At a time when most everyone had shut down for COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, she was busy working hard to ensure she was the first one in the door once the court was ready to begin virtual hearings again. Plus, she negotiated a favorable outcome to my case.

10/10 Recommend
Attorney Shannon Aldous is transparent, diligent, devoted, and will fight for her clients. She is honest about whatever charges you are facing and is knowledgeable on how to get you the best outcome. I received a serious traffic citation. Speeding 91 in a 65. All other attorneys I spoke with ensured me I would receive many points on my license and would in no way be able to use my PJC. Attorney Aldous went over the best and worse case scenarios with me and was honest about the possible outcomes. In the end she was able to address my case to where I could in fact use my PJC - receiving no license points, ticket fees, etc. She was professional and prepared in the court room, arrived early, and efficiently handled my case. Whether a serious traffic citation like mine or a more serious charge, I would recommend Attorney Shannon Aldous to any individual in Lincoln County, NC - 10/10. Excellent rates and exceptional service.

Thank you!
As a parent of someone who needed legal help I can not stress enough how much Ms. Aldous has done for my son and our family. She went out of her way and did not stop working hard for my son’s case, because of her perseverance he is now free. We are so thankful for her help and would HIGHLY recommend Ms. Aldous to ANYONE!!!!

BEST attorney ever!
Ms. Aldous is the epitome of what a defense attorney should be...tough but compassionate; terse but knowledgeable and at the end of the day, she knows her stuff (and definitely better than the client does so don't question her judgement because she knows her craft). Every time I even thought to question her approach toward my case, I was reassured that she is SO very good at her job that there was no need to be worried. I was facing a first time felony offense drug charge that she was able to not only get plead down to a misdemeanor but she actually got me an even better deal in the end. I actually cannot believe the deal I got! She is thoughtful, puts so much time into her cases and is ALWAYS there for her clients. I cannot tell you how many frantic emails/texts I would send this poor woman late at night and on the weekends, and she was always there to calm me down and to tell me to stop overthinking things...that everything was going to be okay. And she sure was right. Everything was more than okay! Throughout the whole process (from the start all the way down to the hearing), she properly prepared me so there would be no surprises. If you are looking for an intelligent, no-nonense, supportive defense attorney....look no further. Ms. Aldous is it! God willing, this is the last time I will ever need a defense attorney but I would recommend her to anyone ten times over. She is the BEST! And I am forever grateful for her services.

Effective, efficient and no BS and reasonable fee
A family member was involved in a car accident and there was some legal matters associated with the incident. I had consulted with multiple attorneys and decided to work with Shannon Aldous because she struck me as the most straight forward along with being reasonable with her rates. Turns out I made the right decision. We was quick and efficient in settling the issue and was very informative. I would highly recommend her.

Mrs. Aldous is not only a great Lawyer she is a very understand.
Mrs. Aldous handled two DWI's for me first DWI was dismissed. Her presence in the court room is very strong and impressive. My second DWI Mrs Aldous was my witness so b/c she could not be my witness and my Lawyer she consulted with another Lawyer to presence my case at trail. This was a very great move for me. Second DWI was Dismissed. If I should need a Lawyer again she will be my first call. I just hope she can put up with me again if I need help. But I have learned my lesson I am being very, very good.
