Shannon Locke is a great attorney. He knows the system and how it works, and navigates the system with ease. I met Shannon 3 months ago on an issue that had plagued me for 20 years. I remember the day I called him, he was meeting with someone else at the time, but returned my call within 5 minutes and scheduling an office meeting 30 minutes later. With complex legal issues presented to him he came up with a plan and executed it with precision. In less than 3 months he took something that has affected a third of my life and solved it, thus freeing me from something that had caused me great difficulty for two decades.
Throughout the case I offered him more money and he flat out refused to take it. Honest? Absolutely. Integrity, he has that in spades. Other attorneys would have taken more money or delayed things far beyond what they needed to be to resolve a complex case just to gain an extra buck. Not Shannon, you couldn't shovel more money his way because he came up with a plan, charged a reasonable amount of money for it, and never wavered in his commitment to his client. I rate him higher than anyone in the legal community I have ever run across. His staff was also very professional. I always felt they had my interests as the core of their mission. Other attorneys would have make you feel as if their interests are more important. Not Shannon, your interests will always be his core mission.
On the day of resolution to the case Shannon was on top of the case from start to finish, and the outcome literally blew me away. I wasn't prepared for how it came out, matter of fact I thought it would be very difficult for me. I remember not sleeping the entire weekend prior to the case being called. That of course was on me, because Shannon exuded confidence from day one.
The day of settlement I saw an attorney who had things literally in the bag. He was professional all the way. Everyone on the opposing side knew him and you could see he was very well thought of by them. In less than a few hours something that had plagued me for 20 years was finally over. I am still learning how to cope with that news, but I came away with knowing that Shannon Locke was the best choice I ever made.
Communication is critical when dealing with complex legal issues. And at times I let things slide to let him get things done. I think that was literally the best way to handle it. If you spend too much time calling him or bugging him over minor points, you end up wasting valuable time. I would say that once you hire Shannon, let him do the work, and leave the driving of the bus to him, and no matter what happens, the outcome will be better than you could have had had you gone elsewhere.
Reviews are subjective, as what you find may or may not fit your situation. But I can say this, from a complex set of legal issues, Shannon literally blew the doors off in solving them. I will always be in his debt. That is just how I came away thinking. Wow, what a great litigator he is. Thoughtful, knowledgable, and filled with integrity that few attorneys these days actually have, and above all, honest as the day is blue.
If you have an easy case or even a complex case, Shannon Locke is the goto attorney in San Antonio. Mark my words, Shannon knows his stuff and carries himself professionally at all times. Thank you Shannon, you gave my life back to me, and for that I will always owe you.
