Our People:

Shannon Mitchell


Having begun his legal career working at a litigation firm, Shannon spent 20+ hours a week in courtrooms representing clients in personal injury cases, divorces, and criminal defense.  In 1993, he left there to establish his own office and began transitioning to a real estate, probate, and small business practice.   He reminds clients and others that we're a small firm in a small Alabama town - and that our reputations are the most valuable and effective advertising we ever intend to use.
