I have been working and referring clients to Shanna now for just over 2 years. She has always gone above and beyond with assisting them to all extents. Her extensive knowledge of the Real Estate industry from a legal perspective is impressive and has saved many clients from hardship that could have happened without her support! Whether the client needs basic/simple feedback or representation to very involved and complicated transactions Shanna is always there 100%. Being a Mortgage Lender myself, Shanna is a golden egg to have in my sphere and is on the top of my list as in referring my clients to. She has also been a great resource for myself and my colleagues in the industry. Thank you Shanna!!

As a business owner of an internet based company looking for a larger office space I found one that suited my immediate needs. I viewed the office 3 times and asked the property managers several questions to confirm my needs if I committed to the unit. One very specific need to my business is the access to high speed internet. I asked the property manager if there was high speed internet to the unit and she confirmed, in fact there was for multiple providers. That made me feel great because I liked the location, the neighboring businesses, office layout and the size of the unit.
After the 3rd visit to the property, I committed and wanted to move forward with a 1 year lease. So, the next day (February 8th) they had the lease drawn up and all the terms were agreed upon. Keep in mind I had asked about 5 times regarding the access to high speed internet, which providers I can subscribe to and they continued to confirm that once I get the keys, I can call and setup the internet service. The property management allowed me early occupancy on Feb 15th so I can get setup and moved in by the lease start date of March 1st.
On the 15th I meet the property manager at the unit, we walk through, sign the lease and I get the keys to the office. She shakes my hand and says congratulations and we go our ways.
I'm excited and go back to my old office to start packing up to move. The next day we start moving stuff into the office and I send an email to Spectrum, who was my current provider at the time at my old office, so I can have the service transferred. The next day I get an email back telling me I cant get Spectrum there because there is no service established to the building. The property manager mentioned to me there was a tenant who had Spectrum in the past so I was confused. So I called another Spectrum office and the confirmed service was never installed to the building ever.
So, I go on to contact AT&T and get the same answer. There was no high speed fiber cables running into this office building at all. The tenants in the building were all running on dsl dial up internet through the phone port, which is not going to work for my business needs.
I emailed the property manager to get on it and she got the same answer and said I need to pay several thousand dollars and $600/month to get the lines ran to the unit. I was not expecting this, so I went to seek out the help of Shanna Welsh-Levin.
I told Shanna the story in detail, and she gave me some good suggestions. I accepted the fact that I couldn't occupy the unit anymore and we moved forward with her advice to write a letter to terminate the lease. She did advise me that I was tied into the lease for 1 yr and it could turn into losing my deposit and rent and still be on the hook for the remaining months of rent.
I read the letter she drafted and it had the scariest language, which highlighted the facts that I was lead on to believe there was high speed internet service to the unit, prior to the lease. I thought immediately this would make the property manager want to end the lease and return my deposit and rent back. I sent the letter over to the property management company that day and 2 days later they agreed to end the lease and refund my money in full.
After getting the news, I went and removed everything out of the unit and back to my old office for the time being.
This is clearly a case where I needed legal help to get out of this and Shanna lifted all of the stress once she understood my situation and told me how to fight the battle.
I will not hesitate to refer Shanna regarding real estate related legal issues. She is really dedicated and very interested in what I was dealing with.
Thank you Shanna and all the best!

I endorse this lawyer. In my opinion no attorney knows Real Estate Law and Landlord Tenant Law like Shanna Welsh. Her knowledge of the law and expertise in Real Estate and Property Law issues set Shanna apart from other attorneys. As an attorney I am confident to refer Shanna all of my Real Estate, Landlord Tenant, and Property Law clients.
