Shayna Sonnier

Attorney

Shayna earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and ultimately, a Juris Doctorate from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law. She joined Hunter, Hunter, & Sonnier in 2010 and specializes in general litigation, family law, estate planning, and successions, licensed both in Louisiana and Texas. Early in her life, Shayna witnessed the value of a skilled attorney as her family faced a significant legal battle, and this experience inspired her to pursue a career in law. She is passionate about her faith, family, community, and work and volunteers her time as part of numerous organizations and associations. Peers will attest some of the many characteristics that set Shayna apart are both her ability to establish trust with her clients as well as her hands-on approach to every case. In her free time, Shayna enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and animals, playing tennis, and traveling. Her favorite quote is, “We live as though the world were as it should be, to show it what it can be.”
