    I endorse this lawyer's work. Shannon hired my appellate law firm to defend the $2.95 million verdict she had obtained in the Conney v UC Regents case when the defendant appealed. As a result, I saw firsthand the excellent case she had pulled together and tried through the verdict and new trial motions. Her work was top-notch. I also know that her reputation in the employment law community is excellent. Norman Pine”
