About Shane McGuire
Founder & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
A graduate of Whitehouse High School and UT Tyler, Shane McGuire has been in East Texas for most of his life. And he has no desire to ever leave (almost literally, as he doesn’t particularly care to travel, much less move away).
Shane absolutely adores his bride (“The Fair Tish,” as he often calls her) and their two kids.
In Shane’s off-time, you may find Shane:
- On a date with his wife
- Coaching his kids’ Upward basketball or soccer games
- Preparing to teach Sunday School
- Watching Texas Tech football or basketball (Wreck’em!)
- In the stands at The Patriot Center watching UT Tyler basketball with his family
- Reading a book
- Fellowshipping with men from his church
Shane received his Bachelors of Business Administration, cum laude, in 2000 from The University of Texas At Tyler, where he served as president of the student government association. After graduating from U.T. Tyler, Shane co-founded Bridgewater Securities, LLC, a professional securities trading firm, and successfully traded securities for four years prior to attending law school. He received his Juris Doctorate degree, cum laude, in 2006 from Texas Tech University School of Law, where he served as an editor of the Texas Tech Law Review, and received numerous awards for academic excellence.
Shane’s commitment to the legal profession goes beyond trying cases and handling appeals. During his service as the editor for the Texas Tech Law Review, he published the following works:
*ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENTS: A NECESSITY FOR TEXAS. 38 Tex. Tech. L. Rev. 159
*CURRENT PROBLEMS (AND SOLUTIONS) IN TEXAS PERSONAL INJURY SUITS INVOLVING MOTORISTS AND LIVESTOCK. Tex. Tech. L. Rev. 223
