  • Jefferson Hampton Coulter II

    I enthusiastically endorse Shannon's work. She is a tenacious advocate with a great sense of humor. She moves cases forward towards resolution, rather than spinning her wheels for months on end. She doesn't have the huge ego that most attorneys feel they have earned and instead lets opposing counsel posture and snarl while she keeps things moving right along. A great attorney.
