amazing free consultation
I called with a question about a collection letter that I have received out of the blue. The amount was too low for the firm to take on, but Shannon spent a very significant amount of time with me on the phone, giving me amazing legal advice and pointing me in the right direction, all for free. I hope to never actually need debt related legal services, but if I do, I would hell Shanon Riddell Wing.

This amazing attorney, I cannot even begin to tell you how sympathetic she is! I called her with questions about bankruptcy fraud and legal issues regarding me fiancé's ex-wife and she listen to the whole story!! Instead of jumping straight for money and how this is going to be a bad case fight, she opened up and asked if I was personally okay and how ridiculous this whole thing is and how long it's been dragged on for. I could talk to her like a friend, not an attorney! I highly recommend this wonderful woman as she is more than just a lawyer, she is really fighting for you and your well-being and make sure you are taken care of!! worth every minute, and every penny!

Shannon was so helpful.
Shannon was excellent! I called the office, honestly in a panic because I was served debt collection papers due to my ex's nonpayment of bills. She walked me through the process, calmed me down and let me know what steps to take. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Nov 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer! I have known her professionally for several years and know her to be accurate, thorough, dedicated and compassionate. In short, a highly professional attorney. I have referred cases to her and will continue to do so as I know she will take very good care of the clients I refer to her."
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Oct 16
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Shannon Wing was co- counsel with my law firm, Dilworth Paxson LLP, in complex litigation in the bankruptcy and federal district courts of the Southern District of New York, including civil, criminal and bankruptcy cases, and appeals in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals from 2002 to 2007. These cases arose from the failure of Adelphia Communications. Shannon was exceptionally bright, understood the complex issues very quickly and was of invaluable assistance to me in both written and oral advocacy. I have since recommended her without hesitation to other clients and law firms. We have had a few other chances to work together, and it was always a very positive experience. She is a very talented, smart lawyer with advanced skills in the bankruptcy area."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Shannon is a highly skilled, straight shooting attorney that knows how to attack creditor debtor issues from many angles. She is also a rare gem in the Seattle/Washington market for having big law experience in complex bankruptcy issues to include ch 11, ch 15, and adversarial proceedings. I can unhesitatingly recommend her services."
