There are few things in life Shannon Altamura enjoys more than a great debate. Once a high school debate star from central Texas, Shannon worked her way through college on a debate scholarship at Trinity University, where she was named 3rd speaker in the nation by the American Debate Association in 2003 and graduated with honors in 2006, before attending George Mason University School of Law. For Shannon, a career in litigation was the natural destination after her academic background in research and argumentation.

Today, you will be hard-pressed to find an attorney as well-researched and enthusiastically prepared to argue your case. Shannon masters the legal complexities of each case by going into “debate-mode” and playing devil’s advocate in her preparation for each and every possible weakness or trap the other side may present. She is also a skilled storyteller, never losing sight of the big picture or her client’s best interest. Shannon’s impressive advocacy skills have earned her national acclaim, including a life-time membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, of which fewer than 1% of U.S. attorneys are members. In 2019, Shannon successfully negotiated a $2 million settlement against an international corporation, on behalf of her injured Randolph County client. In the same year, she assisted Matthew Altamura in obtaining a $5.25 million settlement against an insurance company on behalf of a Randolph County family.* In her decade of practice, Shannon has also obtained many six-figure awards for her injured clients, as well as substantial results for her civil litigation clients in matters such as property and estate disputes.

Although she loves a great argument, clients will find Shannon exceptionally patient and understanding. Shannon quickly puts her clients at ease with her calm demeanor and the assurance that they can leave all the debating to her!
