Attorney Kristen M. Shannon

Kristen M. Shannon began her legal career as a state prosecuting attorney and still dedicates 50 percent of her practice to criminal defense litigation, traffic and DUI cases in Virginia Beach. The rest of her caseload is utilized as a Chesapeake divorce attorney and an estate planning attorney. As the wife of a career Naval Officer and a mother, Ms. Shannon understands how stressful a legal matter can be — especially when it involves your family and loved ones. She works hard to provide a safe, compassionate place for you to share the details of your case and fights aggressively to protect your best interests in the court of law.
