Shannon Carey Medical Malpractice Q & A InterviewAt the start of Shannon's legal career, she spent five years as one of the primary attorneys on a complex mass tort claim involving a large paper company in northern Minnesota effectively resolving both the property and personal injury claims for nearly 40 clients. 

Since that time, Shannon and her team have successfully represented individuals and families in other complex litigations, including, but not limited to, medical malpractice, wrongful death, dram shop and catastrophic injury claims. She enjoys helping her clients understand the legal process and giving them a voice within the system.

Prior to her legal career, Shannon worked in human resources for several large corporations, including one of Minnesota's largest healthcare systems, one of the state's largest retailers and a nationally prominent insurance company.  These experiences gave her a unique understanding of large insurance companies and healthcare facilities enabling Shannon to successfully protect the rights of her clients.

Shannon is admitted to practice in the District and Federal Courts in the State of Minnesota.
