Attorney TN, Houston TX

Let’s just start with Justin is great! I have known Justin for about 8 years. I’m older than Justin by at least 10 years. I have been Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for 19 years….. NOBODY, and I mean nobody has done for my practice and my understanding of the science of criminal defense, especially DWI defense than Justin McShane.

This young man is a great lawyer, this young man is an amazing teacher, this young man is an unbelievable litigator, but most of all this young man is a great person that is a great friend and at the end of the day when you hire a lawyer if you hire one that isn’t a great person, one that is morally bankrupt you really have hired nothing! So go hire Justin, you will be lucky because you have a great lawyer…I will be lucky too, not because I too have a great lawyer, but because I have a great friend! ONEI CAN BE PROUD OF!
