I hired this lawyer a few years back and am glad to see she is still around and doing well. She got me a hefty settlement in a slip and fall suit against a major supermarket chain. I broke my wrist and was in excruciating pain for months. Nothing is worth all that pain, but the nice big settlement check certainly helped out a lot! Looking back, the time put into the settlement was well spent. I am so glad for her continued success. She's the best!
Real talk...she's very aggressive and gets straight to the point. She got me an equal timesharing schedule with my now ex-Wife and I pay virtually no child support! I didn't think this was possible, but it happened. She even worked with me in paying her legal fees. I am sending every guy I know to this lawyer!
I came to Ms. McKinnon after a really bad experience with another attorney. She is very professional, diligent and fair with her pricing. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!!
I found out a hid a child with a girl I only knew briefly, and I also found out that she was an unfit mother. I located Ms. McKinnon, and we were able to terminate the parental rights of my child's mother. It was a long hard-fought process, but we won! She is definitely worth the money, time and effort that goes into emotional family cases. I thought I would be fighting a losing battle as a man seeking to terminate the parental rights of a woman, but not so. Ms. McKinnon got me equal, unbiased justice in the Courts. I'm so happy to have my daughter out of a bad situation and at home with me and my new wife.
My wife left the state and move across the country with my kids. Ms. McKinnon promptly filed an Emergency Pick Up motion, which was granted. She was on point every step of the way. Very intense at times, but you need that in someone fighting for you. Nice to talk to and down to earth. Seems to be well-liked by the judge and opposing counsel. I got more than what I expected!
A busy lawyer with lots of cases, yet always returns calls within 24-hours. She was successful in getting me custody of my child, child support, alimony, a large payout on my husband's pension and share of the assets. She's determined and aggressive! Well respected by the judge.
Really upbeat in high conflict cases and maintains professionalism. Takes the high road and is respected by the Judge. Got me divorced with alimony, majority timesharing, the house and a great payout from my husband! So happy I found her.
Although she is very friendly and easy to talk to, she is hard to get a hold of. For the amount of money that it is put to pay a lawyer you expect to get a responds as soon as possible. I have tried contacting her a couple of times and only moment I get a responds is when SHE needs it immediately. My questions nearly gets and answer and I get charged for a pathetic question like "will you call back today?" I got tired of working with her and decided to sadly agree to anything the opponent wanted. Now I have a heft charge that I don't feel like I owe.
