Experiences / Fields of Practice

Ms. Shane joined Troy Legal, P.A. as Of Counsel in 2015 where she assists Mr. Troy in all matters related to the practice of marital and family law.

 

In 2010, Ms. Shane realized that the best way to utilize both her background in psychology as well as her law degree would be to become a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator. By using her specialized skills and training, Ms. Shane founded her own successful mediation company: Family Focused Mediation, Inc.

 

As a family mediator, Ms. Shane prides herself on helping families in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties to amicably resolve their case, in most instances, prior to filing suit. Ms. Shane handles cases where the parties are represented by lawyers or when they are unrepresented (pro se) parties.

 

Ms. Shane began her legal career in the field of Worker’s Compensation defending large corporations in Miami-Dade County. She gradually transferred her practice to general insurance defense, including legal malpractice defense, personal injury defense, and first party property defense. She gained several years of experience in civil litigation and trial preparation and practice.
