  • Shannon McLin Carlyle is, in my opinion, one of the very best appellate lawyers in Florida, without question. I have requested she work with me on a case of significant magnitude to help me prepare the case for an appeal which may follow. She has offered invaluable assistance in that regard; I refer all of my appellate requests to her firm.
