Shannon L. Hammond is the founding and managing member of Hammond Law, LLC. Shannon is a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law and is admitted to practice law in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.
She is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the Coalition of Geriatric Services (COGS), the Senior Provider Information Network (SPIN), and the Elder Law and Estates and Trusts Sections of the Maryland State Bar Association. She was named a Maryland Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2019, as published by Baltimore Magazine. Shannon was also recently recognized as a Distinguished Graduate in Business by her beloved alma mater, Linganore High School.
Shannon is a frequent lecturer on legal issues involving Medicaid, estate planning, and probate. She has taught “Strategic Planning for Aging and Asset Protection,” at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland Renaissance Institute and “Legal Issues and the Elderly,” at the Johns Hopkins University Odyssey Program. Shannon is also a member of a standing panel organized through the Archdiocese of Baltimore called "In Joyful Hope" which panel travels throughout the State of Maryland to educate congregations and to foster conversation surrounding end-of-life issues to various parishes.
She presently serves as a Member of the Peer Review Committee, appointed by the Attorney Grievance Commission; a Member of the Board of Directors for the Glen Meadows Foundation; and, most recently, Shannon has been appointed as the Executive Director of an exciting, start-up, local, non-profit organization YES!, Inc., which is dedicated to providing education and support for families affected by young-onset dementia. Shannon previously served on the Board of Directors for the Maryland non-profit organization By Their Side, which advocates for developmentally disabled Marylanders and their families.
Shannon has dedicated her career exclusively to the practice of Medicaid and estate planning. She is deeply committed to assisting clients in greatest need and zealously advocates for those with diminished capacity.
Outside of the law office, Shannon is also the Co-Founder, Co-Owner, and Broker for the local, residential real estate brokerage, Maryland Realty, LLC, which she co-owns and operates with one of her four brothers, Justin Grubby.
Shannon and her husband, Scott, live in Sykesville with their two children, Jacob and Abigail. Despite not living on a farm, they are also raising two dogs, Junior and Rudy; four chickens, Hazel, Chicken Little, Jaycee, and Kaycee; four goldfish (unnamed); one Beta (to replace Abigail's deceased goldfish); a bearded dragon, Little Red; and 500 crickets (to feed Little Red).
Whenever possible, Shannon escapes from the "farm" to their small place in the Garrett County mountains, so she can hear herself think. She spends her weekends cheering at soccer fields, cooking, and working with her hands.
