The primary focus of my practice is divorce and mediation. I have been practicing law since 1998.  I think divorce and other family law matters can be extremely complex, demanding, and stressful. That is why it is so important to have an attorney who is "deliberate and thoughtful."  "Someone who listens carefully and respectfully."  I have found that hard work and preparation always makes a possitive difference in any clients case. Please see the reviews that clients and other professionals have posted on this page because they truly capture the essence of my firm's philosophy. Along with my terriffic staff, we expertly guide clients by providing smart, personal, and cost- effective representation.  I have assisted clients in the the toughest and most complex cases including complex financial settlements, international divorce actions, and contested custody and placement matters. My firm is conveniently located in multiple cities throughout SE Wisconsin and I welcome the opportunity to meet with you, listen to your concerns, and provide you with the representation you need and deserve.

Excellent Attorney
After a very long-term marriage, I finally made the decision to seek a divorce. Shannon thoroughly explained the divorce process answering all of my initial questions as well as many additional questions along the way. My divorce should have been relatively simple, but there were obstacles presented by my now ex along the way. Shannon was always there for me. She was great in working with opposing counsel in attempting to resolve my case without having it go to trial. Shannon was quick to respond to me whether by text, email, or phone. She pointed out my options with many decisions to be made along the way, but stressed she would proceed as I felt best. Shannon is extremely knowledgeable, and if something arises she is unsure of or wants to verify, she will immediately research the information getting an accurate answer. I would highly recommend Shannon as a divorce attorney.

She is a kind, compassionate person and brings those qualities to her family law practice. She will be a tenacious advocate for you. In my opinion she is the best lawyer anyone could hire for a family law / divorce issue.

Great Lawyer that truly cares
Shannon represented me in a child support and maintenance case. Shannon handled my case with with dedication and showed a superior knowledge in family law. I have been represented by other representation before in family court and Shannon by far showed that her knowledge and dedication to her client is unmatched by any other representation I have ever received. Highly recommended.

Extremely thankful to have had her representation!
I spent a few years deciding on whether or not to get a divorce. When I had finally made up my mind to get a divorce from my then-husband, I knew that I would need an extremely competent attorney who would both fight for me and walk with me through the process of divorce. I had originally made an appointment with a divorce attorney from a big firm. Prior to my appointment, I began thinking about the kind of attorney (other than a divorce attorney) that I wanted to retain. I was afraid that I might be just another number or case with an attorney from a big firm. I wanted someone who was personable and who wouldn’t mind going the extra mile to explain the many facets of divorce to me. That’s when I went on-line and found reviews through Avvo. It wasn’t until after I read the review of another woman that swayed me to schedule an initial consultation with Shannon. I canceled my appointment with the attorney at a big firm and never looked back. After a few minutes into my consultation with Shannon I knew that she was extremely competent and personable. She took time to answer my endless questions and I also loved the fact that she has worked as a Guardian Ad Litem because I anticipated that there might be issues surrounding my children during the divorce. Her knowledge as a Guardian Ad Litem proved to be invaluable in my case because just as I anticipated we had to have a Guardian Ad Litem assigned to my case to oversee some crucial issues with my children. My case was probably a rare one in that it actually went to trial. Yes, I said that correctly, trial. There was no NBA or NFL money apart of this case. Just one extremely determined woman (me). I spent almost 13 years supporting my ex- husband’s military career and I believed that I should be awarded accordingly. Attorney Corallo advised me through the whole process and did everything she could in order to prevent the matter from going to trial. We offered proposal after proposal and engaged in many opportunities for mediation with my ex-husband and his attorney. Shannon was never intimidated and always stayed two steps ahead of his attorney. She also allowed me to make the final decision of whether or not to go to trial. Shannon stayed ahead of the game and often drafted essential documents ahead of his attorney. She was so patient with me and always made sure I had time to review documents, ask questions, and always made sure I knew what I was signing and more importantly she kept me aware of the impact both immediate and long-term. I found comfort knowing that I was not just another case or client in a big firm. I actually love the small firm feel of her office. Shannon always returned my calls, endless emails, and I even had her personal cell phone number that I had to utilize on several different occasions. In the end, Attorney Corallo tried my case during trial before a judge after several failed attempts to settle with my ex-husband and his attorney. She truly did exhaust every avenue of resolution before going to trial. She prepared me to take the stand, undergo cross-examination, and kept me calm during a day-long trial, even though I felt like I was going to be sick during the trial because of the emotional toll on me. She also always helped me adjust my expectations so that I had reasonable expectations. Attorney Corrallo’s strategic thinking in bringing in a financial expert to testify to my ex-husband’s military assets was invaluable. When the trial finally concluded the judge awarded me everything that I asked for!!! That would not have been possible without Shannon’s representation. I have already given her name and number out to a few friends and colleagues of mine who are considering divorce. While most divorce cases will not have to go to trial, it’s nice to know you will have someone in your corner with such invaluable experience and who will help you try and resolve your case in every way possible.

Best decision I could have made
Shannon is the ultimate professional and provided expert legal advice and guidance. She is prompt, thorough, well organized, efficient, and responsive. I was impressed with her ability to balance an appropriately aggressive approach to case management with a compassionate, open ear to meet my wishes and achieve my desired outcome. The support team at the firm operates in the same manner and is an excellent compliment to Shannon. Just an amazing experience with this amazing attorney.

Consult with Shannon...you wont be disappointed!
I was referred to Shannon by a long time friend who is an attorney no longer practicing in family law. She is very pleasant and understands the law very well. Shannon was able to be calming and explain what all my options were without intimidation or fear. Great follow through with her and staff. My former spouse made the comment that I was well represented by Shannon after the divorce was finalized. I think she wished she had an attorney like her. No kidding!

Look no further, Shannon Corallo is the Attorney for you!!
Shannon is genuinely compassionate and a powerhouse in the courtroom!! What I thought was going to be an amicable divorce took a turn for the worst. Shannon assisted me with a restraining order and then represented me in court for the De Novo Hearing and divorce proceedings. Most importantly, she strives to stay on task to keep the proceeding moving forward while looking out for your best interest!! I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney to represent me with one of the most difficult times of my life!! Thank you Shannon!!

I am lucky to have found my lawyer in Atty Shannon Corallo
Atty. Shannon Corallo helped me and represented me during my recent divorce. When I met with her, I asked if she could help me do it within a certain timeline and although she could not promise me anything, she truly did her best to meet the schedule. She was always approachable, timely, and very considerate of all my needs and limitations as a client. She worked with me with empathy, care and kindness. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and truly knew how to help me get through this very difficult time in my life. Divorce is not an easy thing, we all come from different life situations, but having a lawyer like Atty Corallo sure eases the process. I am grateful for all her help and would truly recommend her to those who need a knowledgeable, caring and compassionate attorney.

Paul Secunda
Shannon was an excellent divorce attorney who was highly effective in working out a fairly complex, but amicable, marital settlement agreement for me. Her knowledge of family law, and associated areas, is without parallel in my experience. She is timely, professional, and pleasant when discussing legal principles and case facts. I really could not give a higher recommendation for a divorce attorney. She would be equally good for either gender. She also has great assistants (Meghan), office staff, and other service providers with whom she has very good relationships (i.e., financial consultants and accountants/tax advisors).

Awesome Atty
Shannon was very responsive in handling our case to enable a fair settlement. She is very smart and an excellent atty. She was very thorough in explaining everything to me during the process of my divorce and making sure I understand everything and what's best for my children. She was always there to answer my questions, if she was not available Meghan was the person to talk to. She was always ready every court hearing and uses her time and my time wisely and cost effectively. She was not only an atty to me, but also she was an excellent advocate and I highly recommend her.

Best Lawyer Ever
I hired Shannon in April 2017 and was divorced in January 2018. I never had to worry about anything because she assured me not to worry. She absolutely did her job above and beyond, even when my ex-husbands lawyer failed to complete the papers in a timely matter. I would highly recommend her because she is fair and fights for what you deserve. SHE ROCKS! HIRE HER!

Fantastic Lawyer
I hired Shannon in a complex divorce case. I was super anxious in the start and she basically exceeded all my expectations. I followed her advice and the case went well. My anexity went too about zero after meeting Shannon and figuring out how to resolve the divorce. She is super efficient and fighter, but has empathy and is unfiltered on legal advice. Shannon deeply cares about people and their families, she is truly the .001 percent of the great lawyers in my oppinion. (Like the Wayne Gretzky of lawyers) Thank you Shannon !

Best decision I've made in years! She's all that and more!
Divorce is never a easy decision to make but when I finally did my choice of Shannon Corallo by far is the best one I've made in years. Before my consultation I was a wreck! Shannon brought me back to Earth made me focus on the details and drop the DRAMA! (SAVES ON FEES!!!) Her plan works. She is very professional and detailed in the courtroom. I'm not about being drawn out anymore so if your looking for an attorney that gets the job done and lives up to expectations Shannon Corallo is the one! I've got my life back! Thank you Shannon

Professional, Prepared, and Personable
I hired Attorney Shannon Corallo after my ex hired a lawyer to help with child support and placement adjustments. We hadn't used lawyers during the divorce, so I was nervous and uncertain about the process. Shannon returned my call within one business day, took the time to understand my case, and helped de-mystify the process. Unbeknownst to me, a court date had already been set which Attorney Corallo immediately discovered during that phone call. She worked tirelessly to settle my case outside of the courtroom. She really listened to my concerns and requests, while mentoring me in divorce law and helping me understand what was legal and realistic. When it came time to meet with my ex and his lawyer, Shannon was clearly more prepared and professional than the other lawyer. Her knowledge and presence in that room definitely swayed the stipulation in my favor. I ended up getting exactly what I wanted while maintaining an amicable co-parenting relationship with my ex (my number one priority). I will definitely hire Shannon for any future needs and HIGHLY recommend her without reservation.

She is the best there is
Shannon is the most compassionate and understanding attorney I have ever met. Extremely organised and intelligent she guided me throughout this lengthy and arduous process. I never felt like just a client. Her knowledge of the law is unparalleled and her negotiating skills and again unparalleled. I would recommend her to anyone in even the roughest of cases.

Great Attorney
I was referred to Shannon by someone my mother works with. She was the first attorney I met with after my low income attorney seemed to not have to much care in my case. Shannon gave me straight forward honest answer when I met with her. She worked very hard in drafting the paperwork in only 1 months time. She guided me and talked to me about everything that can happen. She worked so hard to make sure I was given fair amounts with my pension and my children. She had great strategy and she also talked me out of being petty and vindictive. I highly recommend her to any others in need.
