Fun Facts

Hometown: Burnet, Texas (aka Bluebonnet Capital of Texas)
I’m a huge fan of: My family and watching sports
Favorite food: Give me all the raw oysters, scallops, and crawfish!!
I value: God, spending time with my family and friends, and the USA
As a child I feared: The dark and I still don’t love it. I want to see any dangers coming my way. Haha.
Why I decided to go to law school: I grew up in a small town and became a single mom at a young age. While raising my girls, I saw many people I cared about that needed good legal representation but had no idea what to do or who to turn to. I didn’t feel that they received the legal representation they needed or deserved. It was during this time that I realized my passion of helping others and that I wanted to be a voice for the voiceless. I’m a Fixer. I was still young when I became an empty nester, so it was the perfect time for me to live my dream of becoming an attorney so I could put myself in the position to help others navigate the legal system.

Shann is an outstanding attorney whose effectiveness is well known in the legal community. He maintains strict professionalism in his practice and is always eager to fight for his clients. I have referred clients to Mr. Chaudry in the past and will continue to do so in the future. I endorse this lawyer.

Shann was helpful and courteous. He has proven to be a person of high quality and character. He handled my case professionally and was able to demonstrate to the Judge my legal standpoint to a completely favorable outcome for me.

I recently started a small business, and was unsure about what steps I needed to take legally. Shann told me clearly what he needed to do to help me, and took care of everything. He works quickly, and easily explains concepts in simple terms. I now have my LLC and will be using him in the future. Highly recommend.

I worked with Shann a couple of years ago and I was very hesitant going into the process due to the fact that I had never hired a lawyer before. Once I met with Shann though the worried I had vanished. Shann is very personable and he listened to me. When leaving the consultation I felt like he knew what all my needs were and would move forward in the best way (for me) whether that meant trail or mediation. Within the consultation he answered all the questions that I had and was able to advise me in the best way to move forward.

Shann was outstanding in handling my case and during mediation. He helped me successfully settle out of court and gave me excellent counsel through every step of a very stressful and painful process. Cannot thank him enough for his services!

I have hired Shann many times over the years. He is personable and a great listener. He always provided me opportunities to save money and never suggested legal work that was not worthwhile to me. He has always put my family's needs first. Truely a man of great character.
