The Oncale Firm is led by Shane M. Oncale. Mr. Oncale is a graduate of Cumberland School of Law and has spent his entire career in the courtroom representing individuals, partnerships and corporations in litigation. While at Cumberland, Mr. Oncale had a distinguished record, graduating near the top of his class and serving as Managing Editor of the American Journal of Trial Advocacy, as a member of the AAJ National Trial Team and as a member of both the Henry Upson Sims Moot Court Board and the Cumberland Trial Board.
After graduation Mr. Oncale practiced with a well known Nashville, Tennessee firm before growing homesick for Alabama and returning to Birmingham to practice and found several well known and respected law firms. Growing tired of big firm life, Mr. Oncale struck out on his own in 2006 and has never looked back. He loves the variety of his practice and the fact that his office environment is more like a gathering spot than a true traditional law office. The books, computers, conference rooms and legal staff are still there, but both the staff and his clients are treated like family and not like employees or merely clients.
Most of the clients that come to us are facing issues they never dreamed they would face and are, truthfully, ill prepared, at virtually every level, financially, emotionally and spiritually to deal with the issues they face. The role of an attorney practicing family law is much more than just a mouthpiece or even an advisor. The role is truly unique and is the most rewarding part of such a practice. While we would never wish the painful issues of a family dispute on anyone, if you find yourself in such a dispute, we welcome the opportunity to represent you and help you through the process with as little disruption and heartache to you and those you care about as possible.

Shane is very quick in responding to my questions. He is thorough and is easy to talk with. Not your typical stubborn attorney. It is easy to recognize that he actually cares for his clients and listens to them. Very happy with his services.
