Nationally Accredited Mediator & Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner & Lawyer

Shane McClure grew up in a small country town, but he has also done his share of big city living, bringing a wealth of hard-won experience to the practice of law. A passion for excellence drives Shane’s commitment to providing personalised attention to every client, guiding them through the options, procedures and paperwork that will ultimately provide the best solution to their issue.

Shane has over ten years of experience appearing on behalf of clients in all of Victoria’s courts and retains a particular skill and passion in the field of mediation, and family dispute resolution mediation in particular.

When he’s not trying to put himself in the shoes of his clients and guide them through the legal jungle, Shane enjoys spending time with his young son. He’s also a fitness enthusiast and the two like nothing better than to kick the footy around and spend a few hours in the great outdoors.
