Attorney Review
Shannon was very helpful to us as we navigated the legal system following an auto accident in which my teenager was involved. She was readily available by phone, text, email and even in-person on a necessary occasion. She and her team relentlessly took on the task of managing significant communications with the insurance company and in my opinion we concluded the case with the best result possible considering the situation.

Fantastic Experience
When we contacted Shannon about having a record sealed we were extremely nervous. We were living out of state and had no idea what to expect. Shannon and her team were so helpful each step of the way and stayed in contact letting us know what was happening, if there were delays and why, etc. They made the entire process seamless and I felt at ease after our very first phone conversation. If needed again, I will absolutely return to Plata Schott Law and would highly recommend them!

A damn good attorney
Without Ms. Shannon Schott I'd be wasting the majority of my adult life in prison. She took a genuine interest in my case and was determined to see it through with positive results. Going up against a small town "Good ole boy" system, she was poised under pressure and did not falter. Her close attention to detail resulted in first a mistrial followed by a victory for both myself and everyone at Plata & Schott Attorneys at law.

Fantastic Attorney!
My situation was very time oriented, having to find an attorney to hire by the end of a two day period. From my initial call with her, Ms. Schott was very straightforward and attentive to everything I wanted! We discussed (on the phone), what I wanted out of my case & she answered any questions I had before I even retained her!! After retention, she immeditely started working on my case!! The outcome was swift & the best that I could've hoped for!! She was very straightforward on what to expect & the various outcomes that could occur and what we were going for. Prices were fair, and they even gave me the option for a payment plan!! She also gave me her personal cell, so anytime I needed to reach her she was there! If unavailable, she would call me back as soon as possible! Very professional, courteous, and swift. Would recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney!

Great experience with a top rate attorney
As a lawyer myself, I have worked with many attorneys in Florida and across the U.S. Plata Schott was incredibly helpful in my recent legal case. I have little experience with family law and was confident that Plata Schott was handling my case as a matter of importance and expediency. I appreciated being informed at every stage of the process. Shannon Schott was incredibly responsive and professional. She made me feel like any question I asked would be answered swiftly and after diligent investigation into the legal specifics. Shannon also liaised with the courts and sheriff's office to make sure all aspects of my case were handled appropriately. I would definitely recommend Plata Schott and am grateful to have had them as my attorneys in this matter.
