Bonnie is a skilled lawyer whose practice focuses on representing employees who have suffered discrimination, retaliation, wage theft, and harassment. She helps her clients process what are often traumatizing employment experiences and navigate ways forward. Bonnie understands that for many of her clients, litigation is a last resort; she therefore offers informal counseling, help with agency investigations, and out-of-court settlement negotiations. An experienced litigator who has tried many cases to verdict, Bonnie also has a history of standing up for the little guys (and gals) in the courtroom. Before coming to Shannon Law, Bonnie was an attorney at Nichols Kaster.
