For well over a decade Shauna has been leading litigation teams in complex fraud cases in both state and federal courts. Shauna’s nationwide practice has focused on representing plaintiffs in various settings, including class action securities and consumer matters; antitrust; and cases involving patient harm. Shauna also has extensive experience representing whistleblowers in False Claims Act lawsuits, and tax and securities whistleblowers with claims under the IRS and SEC whistleblower programs. After obtaining her law degree, Shauna sought to represent plaintiffs because of her deep-seated notions of fairness and her desire to represent individuals who wanted to bring corporate fraud to light. She believes the key to success in complex litigation is using experience to lay bare various defense tactics that are designed to obscure the truth. Shauna’s temperament brings a sense of calmness to her litigation teams, even under the most demanding conditions. Using her legal skills, vision, work ethic, and attention to detail, she has regularly generated multi-million-dollar settlements for her clients. Prior results do not guarantee or predict a similar outcome with respect to any future matter.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Shauna received a B.A. and an M.A. from Stanford University, where she was two-time captain of the University’s women’s nationally ranked soccer team. She received her J.D. from Villanova University. Shauna is a Board Member at the Public Interest Law Center. The PILC uses litigation, education, and advocacy to advance rights of communities in the Philadelphia region facing discrimination, inequality and poverty.
Shauna is an avid volunteer and educator. She has served as an adjunct professor at Villanova University (2011-2013) and Widener Law School (2013-2018), teaching corporate deviance courses. Shauna currently serves as co-chair of Stanford University Alumni Undergraduate Admissions Volunteer Interview Program, and is a past President of the Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc., an organization of approximately 800 women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
