    I endorse, and highly recommend this lawyer. Attorney McDonald is an excellent attorney, who really knows his area of the law. He is easy to work with, is a zealous advocate on behalf of his clients, and has a strong record of success. If I, personally, were to ever have an employment law issue, he will be my first and only call for representation.
