Got my case dismissed before trial.
My kids were taken due to an illegal search of my home. It was a complex difficult case and it was not entirely clear that the search was illegal. He put in the effort to make a good argument that it was illegal and got the case dismissed.

Very kind, effective and thorough attorney!
Beyond grateful to Shane as a attorney! He was very warm, kind and very dependable. He communicated every step he was taking so I was aware of where we were at in the legal process. He made a very difficult legal process go smoothly. In addition, he was very thorough. Everything he said he was doing got done from filing court documents to sending me copies of the court resolution.

Incredible
I hired Shane while I was residing in Alaska to clear a warrant and hopefully get the five year old DV case dismissed. Shane did all of this in less than month for a very reasonable fee. I will recommend Shane anytime I have the opportunity

Highly Recommend - Landlord/Tenant Dispute
I had a situation in which I was legally not obligated to take action, but which was emotionally draining and so I sought legal action to protect myself. Shane was professional and down to earth in hearing of the issue and offering practical and legal advice. He was very knowledgable about the landlord/tenant laws, and while there were several area's that were new to us both, he sought out answers quickly and efficiently. Our contract was to work until closure of the dispute, and I can truthfully say he went above and beyond to ensure all matters were taken care of. I highly recommend him both for his professionalism and his expertise.

I received a ticket after more than 30 years of ticketless driving. Shane was recommended to me by a local attorney. After contacting Shane, I paid his fee and he did the rest. My ticket was dismissed and I am very pleased with the manner in which Shane handled it. If I ever need his services again or have a friend that does, I will highly recommend him! Thank you Shane!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
McKinnie Law came very highly recommended and I had never met Shawn prior to. I was on my way to the airport and in a rush and was pulled over for 'speeding'. McKinnie law was able to get a full dismissal through his expertise ensuring that I have a clean record to this day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
