Family law cases involve some of the most important issues in a person’s life. That is exactly why Colorado Springs divorce attorney Stephanie Shannon chooses to practice.
“If someone comes to me as a client in a family law case, they are most likely in a difficult and painful situation that can quickly escalate,” Ms. Shannon said. “As their attorney, I have the privilege of helping them through an emotional and overwhelming process in a calm and reasoned way.”
Ms. Shannon is intensely dedicated to each of her clients. She takes however much time is needed to listen to their wants, concerns, and needs, and does whatever she can to advocate for their interests throughout the legal process.
“I am always honest and open with them about their case – about both the strengths and the weaknesses,” Ms. Shannon said.
Ms. Shannon emphasizes that, first and foremost, the attorney and client need to function as a team. She understands her clients are trusting her with some of the most important and fundamental things in their lives. With that comes a number of inevitable ups and downs.
“I tell my clients that family law cases can be extremely emotional and quickly escalate,” she said. “It’s important to take a breath, stay reasonable, and keep focused on what is important to you.”
