Shane's practice emphasizes workers compensation. He has represented clients in over 2,000 workers compensation matters and over 100 cases before the Workers Compensation Board of Review, a number matched by very few attorneys.
He has also argued cases before the Kansas Court of Appeals and the Kansas Supreme Court. His cases have made new law in Kansas regarding such work issues as determining accident dates; issues regarding employee termination for cause and whether a work disability should be granted; consideration of overtime when determining qualification for work disabilities; the applicability of the agricultural pursuit exemption, and the impact of a person's legal status on work benefits. These efforts have earned him recognition from his peers in The Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers, as an outstanding workers compensation law attorney.
The American Trial Lawyers Association has honored Shane as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in Kansas. The ATLA is a national organization with membership obtained through special invitation and is extended only to those attorneys who exemplify superior qualifications, leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and profile as trial lawyers, both civil plaintiff and criminal defense. The Litigation Counsel of America also named Shane a Fellow of the invitation- only trial lawyer honorary society established to reflect the new face of the American bar. Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers.
