PERSONALIZED & EFFECTIVE PURSUIT FOR THE COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE! I NAMED AS 2022 SUPER LAWYER IN PERSONAL INJURY I FREE CONSULTATION

I have been practicing law for more than 17 years, working side-by-side with thousands of clients and placing their needs at the forefront of everything I do as an attorney.

Long ago, I realized that my drive to serve people as their legal advisor is born out of my desire to care for injured people. Before going to law school, I worked with challenged high school students who were missing something in their lives: a relationship with a caring, compassionate, and empathetic adult. For many years, I was that adult who cared for them mentored them, and equipped them with tools to not just survive but thrive. After getting married and beginning my family, I was ready to take my experience working with high school students to the next level. I discovered a new avenue to serve people – to graciously and empathetically assist injured people, advocate for them, counsel them, guide them, and help them win. I became an attorney.

I represent people who are injured in car collisions and families who need to get back into their home after a hurricane or natural disaster because their insurance company failed them by refusing to pay their claim. I also advocate for business owners who are struggling through a business dispute. I strive to give people the personalized attention and representation they deserve by running a client-centered law firm. Call today for a free case evaluation!

What does it mean to give someone the personalized attention they deserve and to be a client-centered law firm? It means that I reliably return phone calls and emails. It means that I am available to speak with you – my client – directly, and I don’t push off clients to staff members. I compassionately listen to my clients. I take the time to ensure they truly understand everything that is going on in their legal journey. I serve clients by working along-side them to help them recover from their injuries, including a personal injury, a trauma at work, wounds from a natural disaster, or a business dispute.

For me, being client-centered means putting myself in my client’s shoes and looking at the experience of hiring a lawyer and going through a legal matter from their point of view. When doing this, I thoughtfully analyze how I can provide the best client experience.
From your first contact with me, I will intelligently and aggressively guide your legal journey, helping you choose which path to take. I think of my clients first in all things, looking at their experience from their perspective. The client is the focal point – the heart and soul – of my practice. I seek to build their trust to do more than help them resolve a discrete legal issue; I want my clients to find peace of mind, reassurance, and the advice they deserve.

I know that a cornerstone of running a client-centered law firm is to build trust with clients, making it easier to build a good working partnership and leave them satisfied and confident that they were front and center of their legal experience from the start until the finish.

Business Coach
Facing an automobile incident and the prospect of having to appear in court can cause severe anxiety when you start to imagine all the possible negative outcomes. Working with the Law office of Shane McClelland immediately put an end to those fears. From the very first conversation, Shane made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the process and the necessary next steps. He helped take me off the “problem” and onto the “solution.” I immediately experienced the peace of mind knowing I was in good hands and if anybody could help achieve a positive outcome, it would be Shane McClelland. Initially feeling overwhelmed with the fear of the unknown and everything I was going to have to do to lift the weight off my shoulders, Shane immediately took everything off my plate, doing the research, gathering the facts, making the phone calls and ultimately providing simple next steps. I showed up at the Justice Center prepared. While I noticed others around me with anxious expressions, worried about the outcomes, I felt a level of peace based on the guidance I received from Shane’s office. When my name was called, everything was in order, the outcome was what Shane prepared me for, and I was soon back to life as normal, breathing out a sigh of relief at a potentially stressful experience which turned out seamless thanks to Shane’s expertise. However, it was more than Shane’s professionalism that was so impacting. It was the passion to come alongside me and provide both the technical and emotional support that made all the difference. I can’t speak to others but I can tell you the Law office of Shane McClelland is best in class.

EFFECTIVE and CARING
I am writing this for my 80 year old mother. She was injured at DFW Airport when the shuttle bus driver closed the doors on her injuring her back and neck. Shane's Team did excellent work and got her a settlement for their negligence. I am so Happy because when we talked to officials at DFW they seemed to laugh and not even care about injuring her. I would highly recommend the McClelland Law Firm if you are ever injured by someone else's neglect or carelessness. Polite Professional and they Care about their Clients. !!!!

Quick legal question
I contacted Shane about a specific legal question based on my liability in a certain situation. It would have been easy for him to blow off the question or push it to the back of his agenda because it was not clear whether or not it would result in any work for him. He took my question seriously and responded immediately. I think what I most appreciated was the way he addressed each question I had with a clear and concise response based on his legal opinion but he did not use any scare tactics or tell me I need to come in and spend a lot of time explaining in more detail. It was, "based on the information you provided, here is my opinion." If I wanted to investigate further I could have but he gave me a straight answer. I will definitely continue to consult with Shane in the future and I would hire him for my next legal matter.

Thank You for Your Unparalleled Commitment and Professionalism
I was involved in a rear-end vehicle accident. The insurance representatives for the at-fault party were very dismissive from the beginning. I called several lawyers and chose Mr. McLelland because he was courteous, knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. He patiently explained the legal process and advised me to concentrate on recovering from my injuries. I received treatment for several months and Mr. McClelland along with his staff were always available when I had questions. The support I received through the entire process is truly commendable. Finding him was a great blessing! His commitment to my case allowed me to receive a settlement that was not only favorable, but also covered all my medical expenses. Thank you, Mr. McClelland and staff!!!

I was leary at when I first met Shane and discused my case with him due to the nature, but by the end of the consult I felt he was the right attorney for my case. Everyone in his office was very kind and warm with a professional approach that lets you know you are in good hands. Shane and his staff are hard workers and will not let you down.

Client
Shane is unmatchable in both his work ethic and knowledge base in legal matters. He is our general counsel for all business and personal issues. Over the past 2 years we have challenged him with difficult questions on wide variety of legal issues with which we need his expertise in. He always comes through and handles the situation with confidence and honesty. I would give him my highest recommendation as representation both in my business and in my personal life.

Very Responsive & Accessible
I recently reached out to Shane to discuss a situation. What was most notable to me about my interactions with him was his responsiveness and how easy it was to get access to him directly. While he seems very busy with other clients, I never felt I was getting pushed to the side. I got the guidance I needed and I got it quickly. Thankfully, my circumstances were resolved without legal action, but should I ever find myself in need of legal services in the future, Shane would be my first call.

He worked for me
Mr. McClelland stepped outside his area of expertise a little to assist me with a warranty issue on a new vehicle. After writing some letters and having had some conversations with the manufacturer, the warranty was honored within two months. Yes. I spent some money on an attorney. The alternative was paying over 4k out of pocket and allowing the manufacturer to get away with not honoring the warranty. Sometimes, we do what we have to and not because we want to. My warranty on the parts is now fully intact going forward should the parts fail again.

Highly Recommend
Over the past few years my wife and I were involved in a nasty car accident and we ran into a serious business problem. In both of these situations we turned to Shane McClelland for help. Shane is a person who can take complex situations and wrestle them to the ground, and do it in a manner that is both professional and efficient. Shane has a way of turning messy, emotional problems into a thing of the past, achieving the best possible outcome in the process.

"Shane can handle a variety of cases, but I have been particularly impressed with his personal injury and employment work. He is very informed on these topics and can quickly pinpoint the issues involved to give prospective clients a realistic view of their potential case. He is a very hard worker that impresses both clients and opposing attorneys."
Employment and labor Attorney | Feb 14

"Shane is a helpful and knowledgeable attorney. A pleasure to work with. He is focused on both the details of his case as well as serving the broad picture of his client's needs."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jan 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Shane is a competent, ethical and caring lawyer. While he excels in many areas of the law, he is always willing to roll up his sleeves and learn new areas of the law, as well as staying on top of developments within the law. Too many lawyers see the practice of law as a game of one-upmanship, winning at all costs, and cutting corners when convenient: not Shane; when he gives his word, whether to a client, a judge, or the other side’s lawyer, he keeps it. Shane treats clients the way he would expect to be treated, and that means keeping his clients informed, zealously advocating for his clients, and listening to what his clients really want to achieve. Unfortunately, these are characteristics that have been all-too-often forgotten as a new generation of lawyers sees the privilege of practicing law simply as a license to earn a paycheck and not, as Abraham Lincoln once said that the practice of law provided lawyers: “the opportunity of being a good man.”"
Unknown Attorney | Jan 22

"I endorse this lawyer. On all matters that I've handled with Shane, he has been competent and professional."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Shane is truly a gifted lawyer, with a sharp and inquisitive legal mind. He has the ability to see through the complications of any given case to find the sure and quick path to resolving the matter in his client's favor. In dealing with transactional work, Shane is careful and probing. Shane can and will notice problems in a deal that may not otherwise be detected until long after the deal is done when resolving the issue can be expensive and perilous. By such foresight, he can solve a problem for his client today, and avoid messy litigation months or years down the road."
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Shane exemplifies all of the best qualities of a personal injury attorney. He is thoughtful, insightful and strategic in his approach to each matter entrusted to him. He also takes a client centered approach that makes his clients feel as though they are part of the process every step of the way."
