  • Look no further, Rob McKinney is the defense attorney you need.
    As a LEO wife, I was served with a frivolous OP from an estranged step family member. With the possibility of my husband not being able to process any firearms in our household, Mr McKinney's understanding the severity of the situation, Rob took the time to investigate and prepare for the hearing. With that said, Rob absolutely destroyed the petitioner and witnesses on the stand. It was worth the time, money and stress to see Rob in action. If the need ever arises in the future, Rob will always be our first call. You cannot go wrong putting your trust in Mr. McKinney.

  • Rob and his team are second to none.
    The need for a criminal defense attorney typically represents a low point in one’s highlight reel. Rob’s unmatched expertise, passion and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome during troubled times makes him the best available. Grateful to him and his team.

  • Stop searching for an attorney. Stop worrying about your legal woes. Stop wondering if your attorney actually cares and start letting Rob McKinney handle your case.
    In a nutshell, all of the glowing reviews that I read on this site are 100% spot-on. I had a DWI case reduced to reckless driving. Rob is a fighter and would have battled for a full dismissal if I had requested him to but after some discussion I concluded that accepting the lesser charge was the right move for me. Furthermore, Rob was able to file a motion and get the judge to dismiss my probation obligations once I finished the mandatory classes. It was the best possible result for me. I also need to mention that Karen, the front end of the firm, is spectacular and plays an important part in the firm's success and client experience. She responds to communications promptly and keeps you informed of what's happening as required while Rob and Shyanne stay busy getting the legal work done. Seriously, if you're searching for representation and nervous because you don't know who you can trust and rely on, just stop. I promise you these reviews you've been reading (just like I did before I contacted the firm) are accurate and you can quickly take some of the weight off of your shoulders by having a meeting at May & McKinney and retaining them for your case.

    Rob McKinney did an exceptional job! I was extremely worried about my case. Not only did he get the best outcome possible for my case, he had skilled knowledge to answer all my questions about my nursing license along the way. I would recommend him to all of my closest friends and family. Karen and the entire staff are extremely helpful and I always felt that I was a priority. Thank you Mr. McKinney for helping to keep my future bright! I am so very thankful to you!

  • Best defense lawyer in the middle Tennessee area
    So I was charged with schedule 2 simple poss and paraphernalia. His excellence got it dropped to a simple paraphernalia charge with unsupervised probation! It was a mandatory 30 days in jail to basically nothing but fines. Well worth every penny. If you need a lawyer call this guy immediately. He'll do everything he can with a smile to give you the best results possible. Thank God for Rob Mckinney!!!

  • I could not be more satisfied with the outcome McKinney Law produced.

    I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you and your entire team. I could not be more satisfied with the outcome McKinney law produced, especially considering the circumstances. McKinney law helped me navigate and overcome difficulties that I am still astounded by. Even through these stressful times, you were there for me and my family. I will not hesitate to recommend or if ever needed have you represent me again. I will certainly let anyone I know, that you and your team are the best hands down! Thanks again, Rob! Your assistance and representation were completely amazing!

  • The Only Choice for the Best Results
    The case came during my senior year of college. It was the scariest moment of my entire life. I felt my career was over before it even started. I chose McKinney Law Firm because they are the Best of the Best. To have a prepared and knowledgeable defense, in a room where you feel guilty until proven innocent, is invaluable. Roger T. May's no non-sense approach was deliberate and strategic. The results of the case were better than I could have ever imagined. After the case was over, I went on to land a lucrative job, travel the world, and have had a very successful career. I truly believe McKinney Law Firm gave me a second chance at life. I am forever grateful for the team's care, urgency, persistence, and professionalism during a very difficult time. "Because I knew you, I have been changed for good." Thank you.

  • Incredibly helpful
    This was my first experience ever being accused of a crime and I was very nervous and scared. Rob and his staff were incredibly helpful, answering all of my questions and putting my mind at ease throughout the process. In the end, we were able to get everything dismissed successfully. Although in the grand scheme, my case was a relatively minor one, Rob always was there to help and it was clear that his knowledge and experience would be hard to find anywhere else. I would absolutely recommend Rob and his team to anyone looking for a defense attorney.

  • On more than one occasion, you treated me like kin. It meant more than you both will ever know.

    I don't have much to say except THANK YOU. When this happened, I was more devastated than I could handle. I first found your videos online, and it amazed me that you freely distributed information just to help people. It showed me that you were someone I could trust to help guide me through this.

    Having you represent me the last few years through this traumatic experience was one of the very few lines of hope I had (sometimes the only). You both consistently reassured me in my anxiety- never seeming to grow frustrated with my concern and questions. On more than one occasion, you treated me like kin. It meant more than you both will ever know. I hope to encourage you that what you're doing matters so much, and it has blessed my life beyond belief.

    Thank you, I so appreciate you both.

  • Simply Awesome

    I appreciate absolutely everything that you and your team have done for me. I could not have made a better decision than to have your representation during this horrific time in my life. Along the way, I feel like I was educated about the process and felt at ease with every step. The due diligence that was done on your behalf was top tier and goes without saying, simply awesome! The only regret I have is not coming to your first. You have my full support of referrals to anyone I hear that needs a great defense team in their corner, because I sure did! Again, Thank you!

  • A Great Firm to work with!!
    Mr. McKinney assisted my daughter with two separate cases. Both were handled very professionally and had very positive outcomes. He was always helpful when meetings were held and assisted in making this extremely stressful time easier for her. I would recommend his firm to anyone who needs the assistance of very capable, professional, caring attorneys.

  • Best Case Scenario

    I’ve used Shyanne twice now and both times my cases ended in the best case scenario. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing an attorney for DUI/DWI. She is familiar with multiple counties in middle Tennessee which definitely comes in handy. She was never judged and was always professional. Price is fair, maybe a little more than some other lawyers in the area but we’ll wort it. The office staff is also very nice and helpful. I never had any problems getting questions answered or any documents I needed. If you’re looking for a firm who knows how to handle a DUI/DWI case, give Shyanne a call.

  • Knowledgeable, Kind & Real

    Shyanne walked me through every step of the process. I was never in the dark about anything. Her recommendations on how to proceed were spot on, and we got a favorable outcome. She is knowledgeable, kind, and real with her clients. Hopefully I am never in this situation again, but if I find myself in trouble again, I will seek her legal counsel.

  • You Made a Difficult Situation Endurable

    Thank you so very much for all you have done and are still doing. Thank you for being such a great attorney in our time of need. You made a difficult situation endurable.

  • No Nonsense, Willful & Determined
    Retaining the services of Ms. Shyanne Riddle at May McKinney was one of the best decisions I've ever made. In the beginning, I was told that the firm would defend me, fight the charges and seek to have them removed permanently from my record and that is exactly what happened. My reputation is restored thanks to Ms. Riddle and May McKinney.

  • Perfect Results

    Shyanne achieved nothing short of perfection in working my case. She took the particulars of my situation and ensured that the results of my case were in my best interest. I am grateful for this level of professionalism and you would be foolish not to have her represent you.

  • Truly Grateful

    There are precious times in our lives when we are blessed with people who make a difference. Although at times we may not have the right words to express just how grateful we are, we truly are grateful. God has brought you into our life, and we are forever thankful for you and all that you have done, even if at times we may not say so. The picture included is of our daughter. We believe that it is she who will benefit the most from what you have done for us. Because of you, her father will be returned to her soon. That is why I would like to say thank you. People may not take the time to acknowledge the great work that you do or have done, but we want you to know that we do.
