Insist on going to trial on a criminal charge? He is your best choice. Sharp, cool, focused & a winner. He knows the law and tactics. He cleared my name by convincing 12 women & men I was not to blame. Don't expect by hiring him a dismissal or not guilty verdict however. No lawyer has that record. Trials are stressful and expensive- There is nobody else I would want by my side in a courtroom representing me other than Shane.

Shane did a very good job helping me handle a 3rd OWI charge. There was no chance of beating the charge, but he did an excellent job negotiating with the D.A., and judge to obtain a lower sentence than the guidelines. He and his staff were responsive to my questions throughout the process, and meetings were easily scheduled. Situations requiring Shane's expertise are typically not fun, but he is very good choice if you need an attorney.

This was my first time needing a lawyer related to a DUI offense and while I don't question his knowledge and I understand that there just is not a lot of wiggle room in a first time DUI offense, in the end I felt very dissatisfied with his services because I didn't feel like I was listened to and ultimately like my case was kind of an afterthought for him.
When I was vetting attorneys, I made it very clear that I wanted consistent communication and that was a constant problem with my experience with Shane. I was not notified by Shane or anyone in his office TWICE when scheduled court appearances were cancelled/ postponed. There were literally months between contact with Shane while we were waiting for the process to play out. And then at the end, there was miscommunication and I was taken completely by surprise when I learned that we accepted the deal from the prosecutor. When I brought these issues up in our last conversation, I did not even get as much as an apology from Shane.
Simply put, Shane is not the cheapest game in town and I expected better service for the higher price. Regardless of what was done behind the scenes, in the end I didn't feel like I was a valued client. It's highly frustrating to have read so many positive reviews and to have spent the extra money to feel like I was alone at the end of the process. Those are the reasons why I cannot recommend his services to other people and felt compelled to review his performance in a public forum.

Excellent attorney, I have attended many DUI seminars with Shane. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding DUI field sobriety testing and blood and breath testing and is very diligent in keeping up with the latest develops in the law. If you need an excellent DUI/OWI attorney, he is your man.
