About me

My name is Attorney Shane O'Donnell.  I am a former Lake County Prosecutor.  While being employed at the Prosecutor's Office, I handled numerous misdemeanor and felony cases including DUI/OWI, drug dealing and possession, theft and conversion, burglary, battery, and murder.  Presently, I concentrate solely in criminal defense, traffic, DUI/OWI, and accident and injury cases.  I was also named a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers Association in both 2014 and 2015.
