Shane  M.  Dawson


Shane has spent more than two decades counseling clients on workers’ compensation issues. He cut his teeth working in Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation as an investigator and a fraud analyst while simultaneously attending law school. He quickly learned to appreciate this fast-paced area of the law, which blends administrative and court work with a high volume of cases and deadlines requiring a thorough understanding of clients’ businesses and objectives.

His experience includes handling litigation in employment matters, non-compete agreements, arbitrations, and international torts. Before joining Dinsmore, he founded and ran a boutique law firm specializing in the defense of employment and workers’ compensation matters.
