Shannon Flanigan's career of over 20 years is criminal law.  For over 10 years, he served as a felony prosecutor in five counties in southwest Texas then as a felony prosecutor in the Brazos County District Attorney's Office.   100% of his time in private practice is spent defending against criminal accusations.  

During that time, he has tried all kinds of cases - from accusations against juveniles and traffic tickets to robbery and murder.  He has even tried several capital murder cases.  He is able to utilize this experience in felony prosecutor's offices to his clients' advantage.  And, because of his long time in the Brazos Valley, he knows the prosecutors, judges, and courtrooms his clients face.

Many times, lawyers stop their work at the courtroom. After the trial, they fail to win the appeal.  Shannon Flanigan has successfully briefed and argued appeals before several lower appellate courts:

8th Court of Appeals in El Paso
4th Court of Appeals in San Antonio
10th Court of Appeals in Waco
14th Court of Appeals in Houston

Shannon Flanigan has even successfully briefed and orally argued before the highest court of appeals in Texas for criminal offenses, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court.
