The McShane Firm Got a Man Freed Who Spent 36 Years in Prison for an Arson-Murder that Wasn’t
In 1979, James Hugney was convicted of the arson-murder of his 16 year old son. At the time, the prosecution relied on “arson science” that has since been debunked as completely unscientific. The McShane Firm fought for years to prove to the court that he was being held on false evidence and finally secured his release in 2015, after nearly 36 years.


Holding Judges and District Attorneys in Centre County Accountable for Illegal Activities
Stacy Parks Miller was a District Attorney in Centre County who was found in violation of a number of rules of professional conduct. This lead to her law licensing being suspended. One of the violations was that she held ex parte communications with Judge Jonathan Grine. The McShane Firm was at the forefront of challenging and holding these parties accountable.

It was The McShane Firm that Fought to End Breath Testing in Dauphin County
When Attorney Justin McShane found that breath testing machines were only being calibrated in a limited range, he presented substantial scientific evidence showing that reading outside those ranges were unscientific. He also pointed out that the manufacturer of the Intoxilyzer 5000 did not follow Pennsylvania state regulations. Judge Clark of Dauphin County agreed with Attorney McShane’s argument and this called into question thousands of cases that relied on breath testing evidence.

Getting Blood Testing Banned from Good Samaritan Hospital
When Good Samaritan Hospital in Lebanon County failed to follow the correct procedures for blood testing, it was The McShane Firm that convinced the court to end breath testing there. The McShane Firm believes that scientific evidence should adhere to scientific standards and fights to ensure that.

The McShane Firm Sued Harrisburg over its Illegal Gun Laws
Sensible gun laws are very important. That is why when the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ruled that cities and towns could not enact their own gun laws, Attorney Justin McShane sued Harrisburg over a number of its ordinances. In reality, these ordinances had nothing to do with safety and would have made common law abiding citizens, unknowing criminals.
