Connie’s path into the legal field began after she taught high school biology and chemistry classes for five years. In addition to graduating cum laude from Bowling Green State University with degrees in music education and integrated science, she excelled in Cuyahoga Community College’s paralegal studies program. She interned with two Cleveland attorneys specializing in white collar criminal defense and other federal criminal matters. Following this experience, she worked for two years with a law practice specializing in criminal defense, personal injury and other civil issues.
Although her experience is mainly in criminal law, Connie is excited to bring her naturally compassionate and empathetic nature to Shinn Law Firm, LLC. When not at work, she enjoys baking whoopee pies, listening to live local music, and exploring her new Lakewood home with her fiancé and their German shepherd.
