Attorney & Founder
McKinnie Law is a general practice, much like those located in a small town. Attorney Shane McKinnie gives his clients personal attention and handles a variety of legal matters. He approaches his cases from a practical perspective and above all, seeks to help his clients solve their problems, in the way that best suits their circumstances and desires.
Shane’s legal career has allowed him to gain experience as a criminal prosecutor, and also in the private sector for both very large, and small firms. He chose to start his own firm so he could provide a higher level of service at an affordable price.
Shane is a fourth-generation Washingtonian and military veteran. He grew up in Snohomish County and attended Washington State University where he was a member of the Honors College and president of a fraternity. Shortly after graduating from WSU, he attended Navy Officer Candidate School (OCS) and was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy in 2001.
Shane served nearly nine years on active-duty in the Navy as a mission commander and tactics officer, flying on board the P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft. He continues to serve in the navy reserve at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, where he continues to fly, and was recently selected to the rank of commander. He has deployed overseas three times in support of the Navy’s Seventh Fleet, primarily in Japan and the Philippines. He has been awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medals, among others.
