Did you know that Cumberland County has its own drug identification laboratory where it tests seized drugs? The DA’s Office runs it. It is at the old County Prison building above. The testing that they use is not the most modern and pales in comparison to the international forensic standards. That type of knowledge is priceless. When you need the best Drug defense lawyer in Manheim, you need to come to The McShane Firm. We know the science and the law.
Additional considerations when it comes to drug charges
Beyond the battle in the courtroom, there is the battle of personal self-worth, legacy and future. There are many things beyond the immediate concerns of jail and fines to worry about. Consider these additional factors:
Attorney Justin McShane is on the permanent faculty of the American Chemical Society’s Hands-on Drug Identification course that is part of the ACS Lawyer-Scientist course. In this course Justin and others teach the technical aspects of drug identification using instruments such as GC-MS, FTIR and colorimetric tests.

Here is a testimonial from an attorney
Attorney Eric G., San Diego CA
Justin has been, and continues to be a role model for myself, and for many other attorneys across the world. His command on science is unreal. But he also possesses a special talent: he can take huge complex issues, and break them down so they can be understood by everyone. His personality shines as a teacher/professor, and his drive really inspires everyone around him to push themselves to greatness. His approach is one of honesty; objective honesty. And that’s exactly what we need to keep in the Courts across this nation.
International reputation, local experience equals winning
We are internationally known. We do things and know things that other attorneys don’t even know that they don’t know.
Here is a video of Justin performing a colorimetric test on suspected marijuana.
What we will do
First off, we will believe you. You are presumed to be innocent in court. We maintain your innocence. It all begins with listening and caring enough to develop a strategy. The strategy is with one fixed point in mind: winning. We are programmed to win.
Meet our attorneys
Justin McShane is top flight. I don’t put statements like that in writing for just anyone. Anyone in need of a lawyer, especially concerning a criminal case, would be hard pressed to find better. Thanks, Greg
When I got this email from Justin asking me to write a review on him on this site, I dropped everything I was doing to do it.
Unfortunately, my daughter has a drug problem. We have been struggling with it for years in the family. She was caught by the police and sold to an undercover. Justin made it get through ARD so she would have no felony on her record and is now a college student and has a bright future. We cannot believe how great he is.
Mr. Barrouk and the rest of your firm were able to get a Nol Pros order for all of the charges. Happy doesn’t begin to describe it. Everyone was very kind and [I] feel like I played a part not just as a defendant. Thank You.
I have known Justin J. McShane for many years. He is forward-thinking and detail-oriented. Bottom line, he knows the law and how to win. If you are looking for a true professional that is always on the leading edge of legal issues and defense techniques, Justin McShane is the one you want on your team. He is constantly pushing his firm to the next level and they won’t let you down.
