This review is based upon my experience with Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates. You may experience a different result if you decide to secure their services.
I am writing this review on Michael Kennedy McIntyre, an attorney who practices exclusively in field of post conviction law in Atlanta, Georgia.
I signed an agreement with Michael Kennedy McIntyre to obtain and review relevant documents, and to identify the appropriate course of action for my wife to receive relief from her conviction and sentence with Georgia Department of Corrections. Upon Michael Kennedy McIntyre’s review he made the determination to represent my wife with the Georgia Pardons and Parole Board. To that end, Michael Kennedy McIntyre submitted a letter to the Parole Board, informing the Parole Board that Michael Kennedy McIntyre’s firm has been retained to represent my wife’s case for parole, which at that time a parole date “was not” established. Throughout July, August, and September 2011 Michael Kennedy McIntyre was paid $18,143.70 to appropriately prepare and present my wife case with the Parole Board. In late November 2011, I contacted the Parole Board and found out that my wife had already been issued a parole date in October 2011, meaning Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates in my opinion never prepared a case that he was aptly paid to prepare. In addition, Michael Kennedy McIntyre billed me another $9,475.00 to continue to prepare the case even after Michael Kennedy McIntyre was made aware from the Parole Board that my wife received a parole date. Mr. McIntyre never disclosed this information to me until I personally notified him of the parole date being issued, without any input from Michael Kennedy McIntyre’s firm. It is my belief that Michael Kennedy McIntyre duplicitously withheld information regarding my wife’s parole date for his own personal financial gain. In closing, I paid Mr. McIntyre the amount of $27,618.70 and would not recommend his services.
