Dr. Wheatman, previously the senior vice president of Kinsella Media, will lead the firm's team in the design, analysis, and implementation of notice programs based on her experience in more than 300 cases. She has been recognized as a notice expert by courts across the United States and Canada and was instrumental in developing the plain language model notices with the Federal Judicial Center.
Dr. Wheatman holds a Ph.D. in social psychology and a master's in legal studies. Her doctoral dissertation was on class action notice. She is also a trained statistician and author or co-author of 25 published articles.
Kinsella founded and has led the firm for more than 20 years, pioneering notice standards in class actions and mass-tort bankruptcies. While she is stepping away from day-to-day administration, in her new role as founder she will continue to focus on notice strategies for complex cases, serve as an executive vice president for Kinsella Media's sister company, Rust Consulting, and oversee marketing strategy for both firms.
"I can think of no one better than Shannon to continue the creative and strategic work that has been the hallmark of Kinsella Media for two decades," Kinsella said. "We have worked closely together for the past four years. Shannon's commitment to due process and plain language, coupled with her analytical skills, ensures that our clients and courts can rely on notice programs of the highest quality."
