NOTABLE CRIMINAL DEFENSE CASES

Shane Hug was long known as one of the top prosecutors in the Capital District, personally prosecuting 10 homicide cases in his time as an Assistant District Attorney.

Shane has years of experience conducting hearings and trials and he has taken the skills that he honed as a prosecutor to assist people who have found themselves charged with a crime or who have been injured as a result of someone’s actions.

Entering a courtroom on your own can be a confusing and frightening experience. Appearing in court without an experienced lawyer can be detrimental to your case.

More often than not, having a seasoned trial attorney in your corner is the difference between a favorable disposition and a poor outcome.

If you find yourself charged with a crime, or if you have been injured in an accident or while at work, then you need someone with real courtroom experience who is committed to fighting for you.

I have spent my career fighting for people and if I can be of service to you or your family then please contact me.
