The Law Office of Margaret E. Shannon

Established 1993


Certified Family Law Specialist, State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization

Divorce and Family Law Attorney for Sacramento County and Surrounding Areas

Divorce is a painful experience. Separating a family can be a difficult legal process that can cause confusion and resentment. As a family law attorney with decades of experience, I know that having the right attorney on your side can make the process less stressful, and allow you to rest easier.

My name is Margaret E. Shannon. I have been practicing Family Law in the Sacramento Area since 1982. I specialize in Divorce, Child Custody, Support, and more. I have the foresight, expert knowledge, and wherewithal to see you through your legal matter, every step of the way.

All cases are unique, and not all require litigation. Many cases can be settled through negotiation, without having to go through a messy, expensive court case. I am a firm believer in the power of informal negotiation in family law proceedings. My goal is to work one-on-one with you, to help you achieve your goals as quickly and easily as possible.

Unfortunately, not every case can be settled amicably. When negotiation fails, litigation is the next step. With more than 30 years of experience practicing law, I understand what it takes to defend your rights and your best interests in the courtroom.
