I hired Mitch Mckinney for handling the custody case for my son. The most important thing that could ever happen in a father's life. He was on top of it and I have full custody of my son. I could not be happier with the results and attention to detail during this case. Thank you Mitch.

Mr. McKinney has the experience, knowledge and dedication to understand the need to gather all information and data to represent one in court. He recently defended me in a Contempt of Marriage case and all 3 charges were dismissed. His ability to decipher information, logically arrange the evidence and professionally present the case was amazing.

Mitch was a wonderful attorney as I was going through my divorce. He helped me understand all of my legal options with regards to property, finances and child custody/visitation. He was available when I had questions and was very responsive. I would highly recommend Mitch for divorce and child custody legal matters.

Mitch McKinney is very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. He was always available to answer any of my questions or concerns. He stayed with me even when my case went from getting a TPO, to an extension of that TPO, divorce and even contempt issues due to a very difficult situation. I always felt he listened to my needs and gave me advice that was always in the best interest of my children. He never made money or the extra effort required due to dealing with an extremly difficult party get in the way of doing his best. I will use him again if needed, but I am hoping I will not have to!

Divorce is never an easy process, but Mr. McKinney made it significantly easier by providing superior legal counsel to me. He was understanding, responsive, and had very reasonable rates for the area. Throughout the entire process he kept me up-to-date on the status of my filing and paperwork. His professionalism during such a difficult era in life was greatly appreciated, as was his demeanor and confidence from start to finish. I would definitely recommend him (and already have) to anyone going through a divorce and seeks a professional, knowledgeable individual to help them.

It is not often I take the time to write a complimentary note on an Attorney. However Mr. Mckinney did an exceptionable job in representing my son. He displayed a number of attributes (Responsive) I found him to be very responsive to our needs. He returned calls promptly and went out of his way to respond. (Communication Skill) Mitch has a very unique talent of converting very technical legal issues into layman's language. We fully understood the legal concepts and challenges we faced.(Professionalism) never did we feel we were dealing with an amateur. He was articulate,certainly knew the law and how to approach our case. It simply was a relief dealing with him. (Performance) Well here is the best part. He went well beyond expectations and my sons case is in the process of being dismissed. I credit this to his knowledge base and dedication to simply represent his client to the fullest. I would higher recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

i had never had to hire an attorney before, but found Mitch to be very comforting during a very difficult time. He was very attentive and kept us informed throughout the process. He was very good at answering all of our questions. He attained an outcome which was extremely favorable and I am grateful to his knowledge and expertise in navigating this legal situation with us. If anyone has to go through a situation where you need a lawyer, you definitely want someone like Mitch. His fee was also very reasonable and he was patient to work with us.

I hired Mitch to represent my son in an MIP situation. We were nervous and Mitch recognized we had never experienced anything like this and had no idea what was ahead of us. Mitch was very caring and took the time to listen to our concerns and responded to every call and question we had along the way. Mitch was patient as he talked us through the process, what he wanted to do and what he would try to achieve. Mitch was extremely repsonsive and has a very professional demeanor. His expert knowledge of the process was clear and gave us a comfort level that we were in good hands. I would work with this attorney again and would highly recommend Mitch.

I hired Mitch to assist me in a magistrate issue involving family violence. His knowledge and expertise were top notch. Mitch was able to negotiate an order of protection for my kids and I without having to place other family members in jail. In the long run, Mitch knew this was the best possible outcome for all parties. He was very upfront and passionate about our safety and the after effects of court. Very reasonable rates and easily accessible. I have since recommended him to others, all of whom have been completely satisfied with his performance. You can trust him.

I hired Mitch McKinney to represent me in a case with my ex wife. I could not have been more pleased with the job that he did. Mitch was always very responsive to any question that I might have. He was easy to get a hold of by phone or by email. He always managed to give me a clear and calm answer. I have had other attorneys in the past that were hard to get in touch with, made me feel uncomfortable when I had questions and seemed more concerned about their fee then anything else. With Mitch, I always felt like he had my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Mitch to anyone that wanted an honest, competent attorney, that will fight for what is right. Having Mitch represent me, has restored my faith that there are good lawyers out there. I could not have more pleased. Thanks.

I first contacted Mitch for advice on separation from my spouse. He provided me with some helpful information to protect my interests in the event of a divorce. Several months later I retained Mitch as my attorney to file for divorce. He took the time to explain the process to me, as well as how to be sure I had protected my assets before filing the papers and my spouse becoming aware of the proceedings. We only had one significant conflict in our settlement. Mitch worked with my spouse's attorney to find the most economical way to resolve the issue without going to court. Although the outcome my not have been my preference, I believe that Mitch did everything in his abilities to advocate for me in the case. (The outcome was decided by an arbitrator). Since the divorce was final, Mitch closed my account and sent me all the final documentation of the case. I was very happy with his assistance and would highly recommend Mitch to anyone in need of legal representation. I would definitely use Mitch's services again.

Mitch guided me through my divorce brilliantly. He has an excellent demeanor that made communicating with him easy. Divorce is extremely stressful but Mitch made the process as simple as a divorce can be. Even though it came down to the very last day before a court date, he kept me focused on what was important and had it finalized before we had to go to court. If emotions had not been so high between my ex and I this could have been done in two months instead of six if we had not been so interested in â€œbeatingâ€ each other. Mitch is the best at this divorce business.

Mr. McKinney was reliable and trustworthy. I had a very bad experience with the lawyer I obtained before Mr. McKinney, so I was very skeptical about hiring another lawyer. He was honest with me from the start of the case. I never had a problem getting in touch with him. I would highly recommend Mr. Mckinney.

Mr. Mckinney is extremely personable and knowledgable. He sat patiently and listened to my complaint and then went back over it to make sure he understood all of my concerns. It was immediately evident that he puts his clients concerns first. He always kept me informed on what the processes would be like and what to expect. If I need representation in the future, I would definitly ask Mr. McKinney to represent me.

We would highly recommend Mr. McKinney to anyone who is looking for someone who actually cares about his clients. My husband & I have worked with several lawyers over the years in regards to a family issue involving custody & adoption. Other lawyers we have worked with seemed to be too busy to answer questions and seemed to only be interested in the bottom line (taking our money)
Mr. McKinney was nothing but professional and very kind and sensitive to our case. He took time to meet with us, was very patient with us, & answered questions we had.
In a world with selfish, self-centerd people, I believe we may have found the one lawyer who actually has a heart. We are eternally grateful to him!

I hired Mitch as my lawyer on recommendation from a mutual friend. I had neglected obligations due to lack of knowledge of my situation after receiving a DUI and made things difficult. After calling Mitch, he responded that same day to schedule a consultation. I was sold already just from speaking with him on the phone! His kindness brought comfort and I could now see light at the end of a long tunnel. Mitch took control with his infinite wisdom of the system and resources; put everything in order and resolved my case quickly. Without Mitch's guidance my case outcome would have been drastically different. I am confident in my choice to seek his expert council. I will recommend Mitch McKinney to anyone needing a lawyer.

I have known and worked closely with Mitch for a number of years. He is a very bright and hard working lawyer who cares about his cases and his clients. I regularly refer clients to Mitch, and in doing so, I always know that they are in good hands. In working with Mitch I have found him to be extremely responsive to his client's needs and he thinks outside the box to accomplish client goals.

I hired Mitchell McKinney for a friend of mine, Eduardo. I live in Dallas, TX and never traveled to Georgia. So I interviewed several lawyers over the phone and chose Mitch to first handle a felony case in Cherokee Co. which he got reduced to a misdemeanor and the sentence was substantially reduced to only 5 months. Then Eduardo was transferred to Gwinnett Co. where Eduardo's sentence was reduced to time already served. Mitch is knowledgeable and intelligent. He acted swiftly at the critical times. I am a retired architect for a large firm. For 30 years I was the liaison for the firm's legal issues.humphries

Mr. McKinney handled my divorce and child custody case almost two months ago. He was very honest, very knowledgable, and very optimistic about my situation. He made a very difficult time much easier to handle. He was not intimidated by a very hostile situation and was able to mediate and come up with a solution that both parties could agree on. He was very concerned about how I felt, and kept me informed about every situation that took place. Mitch truly had my best interest at heart. Once all the papers were filed, it only took twenty-one days before my divorce was finalized.
I highly recommend Mitch McKinney services to anyone seeking a divorce and child custody disputes. He truly has his clients best interest at heart.

Mr. McKinney handled my divorce and child custody. I think dads have an uphill battle in these situations. I was not optimistic at the start if this most difficult process. Mitch was honest, persistant and direct in his advice. I didn't always like what he had to say, but I followed his recommendations and I am now a VERY happy single dad having all of my children now living with me. From the start, Mitch was very concerned about the kids and their physical and emotional well being. He utilized his resources well and was very responsive to my calls and questions. I recommend Mitch McKinney without reservation and feel fortunate to have had his expertise in bringing to closure what was a very difficult time in my life.

When I decided to get a divorce, I didn’t know where to start. I asked a few close friends for recommendations, but that got me nowhere. I then contacted a couple local attorneys, but they weren’t available to meet with me for two-three weeks. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Mitchell McKinney’s services. On that very same day, I was able to speak with him directly. He could sense that I was eager to start the process and scheduled an appointment with me right away.
Mr. McKinney conducted himself in a very professional manner and was extremely knowledgeable about the legal system. Divorce isn’t easy… Mr. McKinney was very conscientious about my situation. He made himself accessible and responded to all my questions & concerns within a timely manner. Most importantly, he made sure I was treated more than fairly and truly looked out for my best interest.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone…

Mitch represented me in a child custody modification. There were major issues which were placing my children in jeopardy. Mitch was quick to act to ensure my children were safe and worked diligently to ensure the modification of residency / custody was quickly resolved. He was not intimidated by opposing council, stayed true to the course we initiated, and worked diligently to protect the best interest of my children. He placed the safety and well being of my children atop any other priorities. Mitch was thorough, and made certain I was aware of all possible outcomes of the actions we initiated. He gave good counsel to ensure my decisions were well thought out, and provided his opinions through frank, direct, and honest discussion. As an attorney, he stays busy. As such, it could be tough getting in touch with him on short notice. However, he always returned phone calls and emails, never leaving my questions or needs unaddressed. His rates were fair, as was his billing practices. Mitch knows how to best utilize his resources to ensure his clients succeed. He works with a firm that provides amazing resources to ensure a client’s goals and objectives have the best chance to be realized. The attorneys in his firm are top-tier, and the paralegal/support team is the best. I would recommend Mitch McKinney as an attorney to represent my closest friends in a child custody dispute.
