Seeking Positive Outcomes for the Accused

"I care about my clients, and I enjoy helping them. They are good people who are going through difficult times. Some are falsely accused. Others may have made a bad decision, like failing to call a cab after a party. I guide them through a legal process that can be frightening, confusing and full of snares for the unwary. I help put their lives back on track." 
- Attorney Rob McKinney
