A graduate of McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas in Austin, East Texas native Shannon Willis spent her early career in senior level marketing positions for Crum and Forster Insurance Company and CNA Insurance Companies.

While her corporate career involved managing people and helping insurance companies become more profitable and productive, Shannon yearned to be an attorney. To accomplish her goal, she went to law school at night while maintaining a full time senior management position.

After receiving her Juris Doctorate from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in 1994, Shannon opened her own law office a year later and since then has served three terms as a Municipal Court Judge for the City of Carrollton while maintaining her practice. She is currently an Associate Judge for the City of Farmers Branch.

The Willis Law Firm handles family law, probate and estate planning, including wills, trusts and all other documents necessary to make decisions affecting individuals and their assets during their lifetime.

Shannon is fully licensed to practice in all Texas state courts, the Northern and Eastern Federal Districts of Texas and the United States Supreme Court. She is a member of the Dallas County Bar Association, the Dallas Family Bar Association, and Probate Bar Association.
