What The McShane Firm stands for

My name is Justin McShane. I am a criminal law and DUI attorney.

I founded and own The McShane Firm.

We are Pennsylvania’s largest and best DUI and criminal law firm.

Why should you believe in The McShane Firm?

I believe so much in this place, that I gave it my family name. It represents my grandfather who was retired Navy. He was in the service for World War I and World War II. My father, who also served in the Navy, fought in the Korean Conflict. Then there’s me. And most importantly my legacy, my son. We are all born McShanes and remain McShanes all of our lives and into life eternal. That’s why when you trust The McShane Firm, I guarantee on my bloodline that we won’t ever let you down.

Why I need to find the best criminal law or DUI attorney near me?

Most folks think it is important to have a DUI or criminal law attorney near them. But in truth, you just need the best. We, here, at The McShane Firm are the very very best at what we do. What do we do?  We keep those who are presumed to be innocent, to remain innocent.
