I am the founder of the Law Offices of W. Shane Jennings. I am:

  • Licensed in Texas and New Mexico
  • Admitted to State Bar of New Mexico
  • Admitted State Bar of Texas
  • Admitted to U.S. District Court District of New Mexico
  • A member of the New Mexico Criminal Defense Lawyers Association – NMCDLA

South Texas College of Law (I attended a semester at STCL for a dive into Texas elective courses)

University of Detroit School of Law (I chose this law school for their outstanding trial program. Under Michigan Law 2Ls could appear on the record and practice before courts of any jurisdiction.) I had an outstanding trial professor who work in major cases in Detroit for more than 28 years as the Chief Trial Prosecutor for Wayne County Michigan.

I practiced before Courts for the last two years of law school.  I appeared before both magistrate and District Court judges. I worked in both Michigan State Courts and Federal court before magistrate and district Court judges. My first acquittal was a federal court criminal case where a protestor was arrested for protesting the federal government. I also caused an approximately 75 foot by 10 foot section of land in front of the post office in Detroit to become a “free speech zone.” Since then, I’ve never lost a felony state criminal trial. IT may be still, but I don’t know.

In His Own Words: Why Is W. Shane Jennings an Attorney?

Because I believe that people should have a fair outcome. The government already has the upper hand. The government outspend us, out staffs us, and would just outright blow over your rights if not for your attorney. To attempt to even the field, I became an attorney.

People make mistakes. Many alternative lifestyles and minority beliefs are criminalized. For people from different cultures, everyday behavior that is legal in their home country can have criminal consequences in the United States. Sometimes, people just get caught up in a bad place in life. For whatever reason my clients come to me, I want to give them a fighting chance at a second chance, or third chance, or fourth – however many chances it takes to get it right because every person can change their life or find their place if given the opportunity.

Further, sometimes you are the victim of another’s negligence. BIG INSURANCE gets to you first when there is an accident. They will pay low and attempt to benefit themselves throughout the entire process. You will bill left with: Unpaid bills, liens, unrelieved injuries, loss of rights and a devastated life. While I can’t promise to make you entirely well again, I can promise that you will be represented by me and my team to the fullest extent.

My Promise to My Clients

I am a lawyer whose promise to you is that I will represent you as if you were my own family because I care about you. My word is my bond. I will keep your secrets. I will look at all of the things that an accuser has said about you and take them on. I will defend you, my client, so you don’t have to know what to say and when to say it. I will use my skill and care to fight for you.
I will not let the other side rest until justice has been done. I’m a trial lawyer, especially ready for criminal law. I, W. Shane Jennings, attorney at law, am ready to guide and advise you on the law every step of the way. You will never be alone.
