Shannon Goldstein interned at the DA's office during law school, where she learned how prosecutors operate -knowledge she now puts to use fighting for clients alongside her husband at Michael B. Goldstein, a Professional Law Corporation. She also interned for an L.A. criminal defense attorney, where she worked for several years upon graduating.

Shannon Goldstein earned extensive additional experience as a criminal defense attorney in Sherman Oaks before moving to Palm Springs in 1998.

She met Michael at the Joshua Tree Courthouse, while appearing on unrelated matters, and the rest, as they say, is history.

They were married in 1998 and Shannon worked as an associate for a highly reputable criminal defense and civil litigation firm in Palm Desert from 1998 to 2003. There, she practiced almost exclusively criminal defense with an emphasis on DUI law until her first child was born on Jan. 1, 2004.

Michael and Shannon are now blessed with two children, Matthew and Hailey.

Today, Shannon works with Michael on all aspects of the practice, including but not limited to, appearances, research, writing, hearings, motions and trials.

At Michael B. Goldstein, a Professional Law Corporation, fighting for your rights is a family affair.
