Good Lawyer!!, very expensive
Shannan is a really good lawyer - She is tough but also heartfelt. She is not afraid to take a strong stand on a matter. She gives good advice, I hired her for my restraining order case, which I won. Shannan's firm that she works at is very expensive! But overall I am thankful for her support, caringness, and service!
