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 outspends us, out staffs us, and would just outright blow over your rights if not for the defense 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.
