A winning tradition

We only employ winners. We don’t employ whiners. Whining attorneys never ever get things done. They have an excuse for everything:

  • Why they can’t return your call.
  • How come they can’t get a better deal.
  • Why your case is hopeless.

We are winning attorneys. We treat you with:

  • respect,
  • honesty,
  • good manners, and
  • old-fashioned values like listening before speaking.

We’ll hear you out. Then, we will talk your ears off about your case. It is our way. Too much information, rather than too little. That’s how we would want to be treated. So that’s how we will treat you. 

When selecting which attorney to hire, please consider:

  • Can you call anytime and talk to a live person?
  • Do they offer payment plans with no credit checks?
  • Will your attorney be attentive and explain what’s going on?

At The McShane Firm, we answer yes to all of these questions. We strive to provide you with a great customer service experience during this tough time.

We presume you to be innocent. Keeping your good name safe is what we love to do.
