About

Hi, I’m Shannon Baldwin. I became an attorney to be able to advocate for people and assist them in successfully navigating their legal issues.

I am licensed to practice law in West Virginia and Virginia. I have been an attorney for almost 22 years. I represent clients on a variety of matters such as divorce, custody, criminal defense, contracts, and estate planning. I have a significant amount of trial and courtroom experience that is valuable in every area of law.

One of my proudest moments as an attorney was successfully prosecuting numerous murder cases as one of the youngest elected prosecuting attorneys in West Virginia. 

My goal is to be honest and transparent with my clients while ensuring that the client’s objectives and goals are met. I love to play tennis and enjoy spending time with my family.

 

Why I Practice Law
I knew I wanted to a be a lawyer for as long as I can remember.
Fun Fact
I have had the pleasure of arguing before the West Virginia Supreme Court on two occasions.
