Shane is a member of the firm's Post-Trial and Appellate Advocacy Practice Group. In this role, he handles all aspects of briefing and argument in federal and state appellate courts, and is also routinely tasked with assisting trial teams with the preparation and presentation of briefing and argument in support of pre-trial motions and post-trial motions. The appellate team at Marshall Dennehey also provides critical support to attorneys at trial to ensure that pitfalls are avoided and all appellate issues are preserved for clients. Serving as appellate lead counsel and trial-level support counsel allows Shane to handle cases of all varieties, including civil rights and municipal liability, negligence, construction accidents, professional malpractice, products liability, toxic torts, and class actions.

Prior to joining the firm, Shane served as a law clerk for one year for the Honorable D. Brooks Smith, of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. This followed a two-year clerkship for the Honorable William J. Zloch, of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. In both chambers, Shane was responsible for managing the portion of the judges' docket(s) assigned to him, drafting opinions and orders, and preparing the judges for argument and trial.

Shane is admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of New Jersey, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Reported CasesSignificant Representative Matters: A unanimous panel of the Superior Court affirmed the entry of summary judgment in favor of Shane's client, a heavy construction equipment manufacturer and dealer. Despite being the lone deep pocket in a case with large exposure due to the catastrophic and permanent injuries, the Superior Court agreed that the deposition testimony could not allow the claim to survive summary judgment, because there was no evidence that the design of the product caused the accident and injuries to the plaintiff. Williams v. Anderson Equip. Co., Komatsu American Corporation , 1454 WDA 2013 (Pa. Super. Oct 7, 2014).; In a premises liability case involving severe head and cognitive injuries, Shane successfully defended against suit in Pennsylvania against a California golf resort. The Third Circuit agreed with the District Court that no basis for personal jurisdiction over the resort was demonstrated from the record, but remanded for jurisdictional discovery. After a round of written discovery and depositions, Shane assisted the trial attorney in a new briefing on the jurisdictional issue. The Eastern District of Pennsylvania renewed its conclusion that no basis for jurisdiction could be demonstrated and dismissed the case a second time. There was no appeal. Rocke v. Pebble Beach Company , 541 Fed. Appx. 208 (3d Cir. Oct 10, 2013) & 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60218 (E.D. Pa. April 28, 2014).
