Your Road To Resolution Begins By Partnering With Our Dedicated Firm

Our Firm’s New Direction

Effective January 1, 2023, Shon Cook Law, PC changed to TABONO LAW. After 10 years of operating a firm under the name of its founder, the firm experienced unprecedented growth and energy that became bigger than one person. The transition to TABONO LAW recognizes the accomplishments of everyone in the law firm and its commitment to expand legal services and provide greater value to our clients and the community.

TABONO is an ancient West African symbol that stands for hard work and determination to achieve a final goal. It is a reminder that we must always strive to become better and work harder to meet the results of our clients. TABONO literally means “oar” in the Adrinka language and each of the four oars stands for the core values of strength, confidence, hard work and unity of purpose.

TABONO LAW is excited to be rooted in the West Michigan community and provide the best legal services available.
