Strengthening Your Defense Through Mock Trials

Mr. McKinney and his paralegal staff provide personalized service and put your case to the test in a focus group mock trial. While that may seem to be an unusual tactic in handling your case, we have found it to be effective. In a confidential manner, we present your case in front of a de-facto "jury of your peers" before it is tried in a court of law. That approach provides us insight on the strengths and weaknesses of your case before it even sees a courtroom.

A criminal charge at any level can affect your entire life. Your freedom, your family, your job, and your reputation are all at stake. A DUI conviction could mean the loss of your driver's license.
