Shannon Corallo is a problem solver who can be counted on to do the right thing. Though the law is based on tradition and rules, Shannon recognizes that people come from many backgrounds and perspectives and what may seem right to them may not be “right” to a court. That is why Shannon takes great care in educating her clients about all their options—always managing the reality of her clients’ situations with plain and simply honesty.
Shannon’s strong practical skills and intrinsic drive enable her to approach each case with a sense of purpose. Methodical, yet flexible, Shannon looks for “win-win” solutions whenever she can, but never shies away from litigation if a court-ordered solution is the best option for achieving her client’s objectives.
As an experienced and sought-after mediator, Shannon helps families find stability and continuity when the court process is inadequate to resolve their unique issues. She takes pride in preserving harmony and helping families create their own solutions to difficult problems.
Shannon is also a seasoned litigator, having handled thousands of litigated matters throughout her career. Shannon enjoys using her skills in the courtroom when the case calls for it.
Shannon’s clients describe her as hard-working, determined, and a strong advocate. She describes herself as a “problem solver” and “ready to fight for clients’ interests whether in court or across the table from opposing counsel.” She views responsibility as an opportunity to prove time and again that she is the right person for the job.
A graduate of UW-Madison law school, Shannon is a well-regarded and well-established family and divorce lawyer. In her spare time, she enjoys time with her husband and three children; traveling and exploring the U.S. National Parks.
