I recently got charged with my second DUI in a ten year period. As a CDL carrier I was looking at losing my CDL for life! I looked up reviews of lawyers in the area and all reviews turned to Justin McShane. I immediately contacted his firm and they took over my case. Justin’s firm has several options and payment plans. Heidi Etter is Justin’s paralegal and she was fantastic through the whole process, quick to respond to any questions I had. If you are reading this, and have recently been charged with DUI or any other crime, don’t wait, call the McShane firm now!! I went to my final trial yesterday, December 13th. Justin won my case, and saved my life.
The McShane Firm has the #1 attorneys that I have ever met. They have your best interest in heart and they truly want to help you.
