Shannon McKay - LLB, BA
Shannon graduated in 1999 and initially went to work for the government (not as a secret agent though.). She then worked as a para-legal in London for 3 years before returning home to Hawke’s Bay. Shannon specialises in family law offering awesome service to clients who need help with resolving the care arrangements for their children or need any other family based advice. Shannon has served as Chairperson for the Havelock North Toy Library and Chairperson of the Home and School Association at her children’s primary school. She currently is Chairperson of Lucknow School Board of Trustees and is a Board Member of Havelock North Intermediate Board of Trustees. Shannon was made an Associate at Bay Legal in 2015 and then a Senior Associate in 2020.
Unlike other solicitors in our office, Shannon does not try and raid other people’s chocolate stockpiles but she is very efficient and organised and her clients love that. Topping that off is Shannon’s wicked infectious laugh and her ability not to take herself too seriously.
