During my first consultation with Tad McLeod at the Mike Kelly Law Firm, I knew I had found the "right" man to handle my case. Tad was very professional from the beginning of my case to the very end. He negotiated a fair settlement and proved that he did not fear taking on "big business" on my behalf. If a need were to arise in the future, I would not hesitate hiring Tad and his firm to handle my legal issues.
Tad was able to walk me through the legal process and was very upfront about the possible outcomes.
He did his job "as advertised"...and we received the outcome we were looking for.
My firm, Marsh Bell Construction Company Inc, is a General Contractor and Construction Manager.
We first engaged Mr. McLeod to assist us to recover expenses related to products (wood interior doors) supplied to a project, but later, after installation, rejected by the Owners architect as both defective and non-compliant with specifications. We were frustrated because this manufacturer liened the project and would not discuss the issue. We engaged Mr. McLeod to help us.
Mr. McLeod was prompt and very effective at causing this manufacturer to respond, and send two representatives to Columbia with decision making authority . Mr. McLeod conducted the negotiations between our two firms , and aafter a short meeting, a very favorable agreement was reached .
Since this issue arose, I have counseled with Mr. McLeod on one personal insurance issue, and several business topics.
I am very comfortable recommending Mr. McLeod and his firm .
My daughter was badly injured two years ago and someone else was at fault. I've never been involved in any lawsuit, but I have many friends and family members who are attorneys/paralegals. I am not a litigious person by nature, so when someone suggested contacting an attorney I was reluctant because I had sleezy ambulance chasers in my mind. A friend who knew Tad personally, recommended him and I knew I had made the right choice when I first met with him. He was compassionate, honest, knowledgeable and didn't make promises he couldn't keep. He guided me through the process and kept me informed and up to date the entire time. When I had questions, he often returned my phone calls/emails literally within minutes. His legal strategy and hard work ultimately resulted in our daughter quickly receiving a significant (and well deserved) settlement, which will ensure her needs are covered in the future. I can't thank Tad enough for all he did to make that happen!
