Meet Shonnese Stanback of Stanback Law Firm!
A little about Shonnese
I was born in Durham, NC, have lived in Poughkeepsie, NY, but was mostly raised in Marietta, GA. So, I’m from the South, but apparently don’t have a Southern accent (thanks to NY)! I’m a life-long musician, a lover of sports and entertainment, and a UNC Tar Heel. I currently live in Durham, NC, and love to travel as much as possible.
Tell us about what you do
I am the owner of Stanback Law Firm, PLLC, located in Cary, NC. I began practicing law in 2000, and have been practicing family law for more than 10 years. My practice serves the Triangle Area, with a high concentration in Wake County. In 2009, I became an Authorized Athlete Representative (an agent) with USA Track & Field. I currently represent 7 young track and field athletes, as well as a popular reality show star.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I’m one of those weird people who enjoys exercising! It helps that I have good friends with whom to workout, and push me not to cheat! I love to go to concerts or anything where live music is playing. During the summer, you’ll mostly find me at professional and youth track and field meets. I fell in love with track and field many years ago, which makes representing professional track athletes so much fun! When I can gather my golf crew together, we will go hit a local golf course, and spend an afternoon re-writing the rules of golf (haha!)
What is your favorite dish to cook?
I prefer to bake. So, just about any kind of cake or cookie is fun for me to bake. I haven’t mastered pies yet.
Shonnese’s words of encouragement
I believe that we only get one chance to live happily, so I try everyday to make sure that I take one more step toward living my best life. “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” ~Harvey Fierstein
