Shane is here to help small businesses in their quest to navigate the thicket of federal government contracting. In this endeavor, he draws on his experience with Lentz Clark Deines PA, an Overland Park, Kansas-based boutique law firm specializing in debtor-creditor rights. In that position, he managed legal problems in hundreds of bankruptcy cases, and advised clients ranging from individual consumers to small businesses on fundamental financial matters and how to run through the gauntlet of bankruptcy laws and procedures. (Don’t worry, he’s not going to recommend a bankruptcy filing for you—that was in the past). Shane excels in handling settlement negotiations, as well as drafting both transactional and litigation documents. In addition, he has litigated numerous issues of state and federal law before federal bankruptcy courts, as well as matters on appeal.
While at the University of Kansas School of Law, Shane served on the Kansas Law Review as the Symposium Editor and was a member of the Moot Court Council. Shane also served as judicial intern for Judge Dale L. Somers of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas while in law school.
Prior to law school, Shane served as a Peace Corps volunteer for two years in Jamaica and received an M.A. degree in Sociology and an undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies and Sociology from the University of Kansas. Shane is a fan of both Lawrence, Kansas, and the University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball team. He is such a fan of Lawrence that he came back from the sunny shores and Blue Mountains of the Caribbean to live there. He usually spends his free time with his wife and two kids and can often be found strolling downtown Lawrence, playing soccer, or camping.
