A Veteran Trial Lawyer
One key to being a successful criminal defense attorney is the willingness to take cases to trial. When the prosecution understands that the lawyer on the other side will prepare a strong case in the courtroom, they are more likely to be reasonable at other points in the case. Shannon Aldous has tried many cases, both before a judge and jury. Furthermore, she prepares every case with the understanding that trial is possible. By doing so, she can defend her clients to the best of her ability.

I received a serious traffic citation. All other attorneys I spoke with ensured me I would receive many points on my license and would in no way be able to use my PJC.

In the end she was able to address my case to where I could in fact use my PJC - receiving no license points, ticket fees, etc. She was professional and prepared in the court room, arrived early, and efficiently handled my case.
Whether a serious traffic citation like mine or a more serious charge, I would recommend Attorney Shannon Aldous to any individual in Lincoln County, NC - 10/10. Excellent rates and exceptional service.
