When evidence of harassment exists against a party involved in litigation, family court has the power to issue an injunction, prohibiting the aggressor from making physical contact.
By acting decisively, Shannon has a history of filing petitions with the court on behalf of her clients to obtain injunctions, thereby halting the flow of harassment and securing immediate and effective relief.
Conversely, Shannon regularly relies on her judgment to recognize those instances when illegitimate injunctions have been filed against her clients. As a former public defender, she vigorously defends them against such false claims made for the purpose of intimidating them and damaging their credibility in court.
As her clients’ legal advocates, Shannon is skilled at recognizing that the nature of each injunction is contingent on the type of relationship that exists between the victim and abuser. She is also well aware of the long-term consequences associated with failure to comply with a court-ordered injunction, noting that penalties can impact child custody arrangements and even lead to incarceration.
Over the course of her career, Shannon has helped scores of Milwaukee County families achieve peace of mind and protection by quickly and successfully securing injunctions.
