Shannon Spyres joined Gross Shuman as a law clerk in 2022. Her outstanding work led the firm to extend an offer in 2023 to remain with the firm as an associate attorney.

Today she works closely with her colleagues as a member of our Estate Planning and Personal Injury practice groups.

As a member of the estate planning team, Shannon works with clients to draft various estate planning documents including wills, power of attorney documents and healthcare proxies. She takes the approach that each client has unique needs and concerns when it comes to planning their estate. No two clients are the same, and she works with them to ensure their needs are met and their assets are protected in a way that aligns with their wishes.

In the personal injury arena, Shannon works alongside Sarah Rera and Howard Cohen, two of our veteran PI attorneys, assisting on cases ranging from automobile accidents to medical malpractice cases. Her attention to detail coupled with her compassion for our clients, many of whom she meets following what is often a traumatic event in their life, makes her an invaluable member of our team.

Shannon also assists attorneys in the labor and employment group, workiong on a wide range of matters on the employer side of the law.

Prior to joining Gross Shuman, Shannon gained valuable legal experience as an intern with the Center for Elder Law and Justice. She also served as a member of the Buffalo Law Review as well as on the Board of the Buffalo Moot Court.
