Each family law case is unique in its own way; no two cases are exactly the same. As a result of these differences, the divorce process can become complex very quickly. Attorney Shannon M. Tenney has extensive knowledge in family law and exercises compassion for each and every client.

Shannon began her legal career at Renée E. Mura S.C., where she spent her time representing clients both in family law and criminal law cases. She is well versed in several areas of the law, which helps her advocate for and support her family law clients.

As a family law attorney, Shannon takes her position very seriously. She is constantly learning and adapting new skills in order to become a better and more effective advocate. She is open-minded and creative when formulating strategies to best meet her client's needs.

To Shannon, being an attorney is more than just helping her clients in the courtroom. It is also essential to act as a support system as they go through quite possibly the worst time in their lives. She finds her work as a lawyer extremely humbling and rewarding.

Shannon strives to provide a strong voice for those who feel that they are voiceless. She has represented many people in divorce and custody and placement actions who felt helpless in their situations. However, as their attorney, Shannon empowers her clients. Her greatest hope is to encourage her clients to fight for their futures long after their cases are resolved.
