  • SLG's involvement with our family was so touching and thoughtful that we consider them wonderful lifelong friends.

    Joe Shannon represented my mother during a lawsuit she was involved in. There was a terrible car accident in which she was a passenger and was seriously injured. Joe and his associate Patrick Cummings were absolutely amazing in their representation of my mom. They put in tireless long hours and truly went the extra mile! I can honestly say their kindness and attention during this difficult time made my mom and our entire family feel safe and secure. Joe had Mom's very best interest at heart. The outcome of the trial was very successful and our family owes a great debt of gratitude to Joe and Patrick. Their involvement with my mom and our whole family was so touching and thoughtful, we now consider them wonderful lifelong friends. If you are fortunate enough to have Joe and his associates represent you or a loved one, count yourself as very lucky. - Cathy McKenzie

    Joe Shannon quietly wins multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements in the Chicago area for his pool of diverse clients. He zealously represents his clients. There are other firms that are bigger, but none better. He specializes in going the extra mile, especially for wrongful death cases. He believes nothing is more important than life. I have referred several wrongful death cases passed over by larger firms that resulted in large awards through Joe Shannon's office. I highly recommend this firm.

  • Joe is an energetic guy; takes on the unusual, and is a highly motivated negotiator.

    Much to my very own surprise, after consulting with a 'top rated' Naperville attorney who wasn't interested in anything less than 'two comma settlements' - I was referred to Joe Shannon by another local lawyer. No better reference than a colleague... Joe is an energetic guy; takes on the unusual, and is a highly motivated negotiator. He's not just another stuffed suit, but rather a local family man, with transparency, and values. Since my experience with Shannon Law Group, in a first of its kind case, I've recommended Joe Shannon to at least two friends - both of which had a positive experience. I'm not the type of person to give out recommendations... Shannon Law Group's a best choice- personal, friendly; and most of all, available and didn't forget me after the settlement.

  • I will always be thankful for him helping me through a very unpleasant period in my life.

    As a business newbie in my mid-20's, I had started up a successful new company with 2 partners.  A few years later my partners forced me out. I was left owning 49.5% of the company but receiving no compensation. I got in touch with Joe, and he assured me he could help. My case went to trial and even though I had no previous court experience, it was obvious to me that Joe and the others representing me ran circles around the corporate lawyers defending my former partners. After a week of testimony, the jury voted 11 to 1 in my favor and I was granted a large judgment. With that leverage I was finally offered a reasonable settlement to buy my stock. Joe was very helpful throughout the year-long process in both a professional and personal manner, I will always be thankful for him helping me through a very unpleasant period in my life.

They always made us feel like our case was a priority in their office.When it came time to resolve our case, Joe took the needs of our family first before coming to a resolution and finalizing our case. Our resolution far exceeded our expectations.

  • I am happy to report that Joe was able to win a favorable ruling for me.

    In 2004, I was a passenger in a car that was hit by another car; my left arm was severely broken. Even though both cars had medical liability insurance, neither insurance company covered my medical expenses. Seeking legal representation to press my case for coverage, I was turned away by several lawyers who described my case as being “not worth their time.” Fortunately for me, Joseph Shannon saw past his own professional and personal gain and agreed to represent me so that I could receive the proper care and move on with my life. Throughout the legal process, Joe and his staff were kind and attentive, even in the face of my procrastination. I am happy to report that Joe was able to win a favorable ruling for me. Perhaps as important as this ruling, Joe made me feel important, as if the law is not written just for the gain of lawyers and those whom they represent, but also for the protection of people who have been wronged. I will always be very grateful for his work on my behalf.

  • I am happy to report that my son received a favorable settlement from the insurance companies who had originally refused to pay for his medical treatment.

    I will always remain grateful to Joe Shannon and his wonderful team for their representation of my son, Colin. They helped restore his faith that there can be justice for an individual who engages in a battle with a large corporation. I am happy to report that my son received a favorable settlement from the insurance companies who had originally refused to pay for his medical treatment. He was able to use this settlement to fund his education. In many ways, Joe is responsible for my son charting his future.

  • Joe also minimized the legal expenses so that when a settlement was reached it was not consumed by legal fees and reimbursements to the insurance companies.

    I was involved in a multi-vehicle automobile crash in which my vehicle was struck head on. I thought it would be an open and shut case. However, within one week of the crash, I realized that it was not going to be that simple. Even my own insurance company was adversarial. It was clear that without proper legal representation this crash was going to cost me and my family thousands of dollars. Fortunately, at this point I was referred to Joe Shannon and the Shannon Law Group by a trusted friend and neighbor. From the first meeting I felt very comfortable dealing with Joe and his team. Joe was clear in explaining the process for resolving the case as well as the expected outcome. Throughout the process Joe and his team managed the interactions with the insurance companies, kept me informed about the status of the case and advised me as to how best to proceed. Joe also minimized the legal expenses so that when a settlement was reached it was not consumed by legal fees and reimbursements to the insurance companies. I have since referred two friends to the Shannon Law Group. Thanks to Joe Shannon and his team for seeing me and my family through this difficult situation.

  • He is not only an excellent attorney handling a case, he is a caring human.

    It is not very often that you come across a professional who goes so above and beyond; Joe Shannon is such a person.  It was of course unfortunate circumstances that I met Joe Shannon, but I will forever be grateful for his expertise and dedication.  He is not only an excellent attorney handling a case, he is a caring human. Joe took such an interest in my son (who was injured), but didn’t just handle the case and walk away.  He is an extraordinary attorney and person. It was a pleasure to work with both Joe and his staff.

  • He spent countless hours working on our behalf and achieved an outcome we never thought possible.

    There are no words to express our gratitude to Joe Shannon.  The case he handled involved our children so it was an extremely difficult time.  Joe, being a parent, understood our emotional stress and did everything possible to reassure us.  He spent countless hours working on our behalf and achieved an outcome we never thought possible.  Without a doubt, Joe went above and beyond the call of duty.  Simply put - Joe treated our family like his own.  We sincerely hope we will never be in a similar situation but we would highly recommend Joe Shannon to anyone who needs legal help. We will be forever grateful for his expertise, compassion and understanding.
