We retained Mr. McKinney in 2013 to help with a *very* complex adoption/custody case that stemmed from parental abandonment in 2009. For the past 17 months Quincy has been amazing!! He was very patient through the legal process, explaining the law and our rights in such a way that it all made sense.
Quincy was with us every step of the way through interrogatories, discovery, depositions, mediation, and finally on our day before the judge in December 2014. Not only did he provide exceptional legal counsel, but he was also there with support during what was an incredibly stressful time. He listened to everything we said and mapped a plan for success based on the most pertinent evidence that would fulfill the requirements of the law. He spoke with our witnesses at length so they would know what to expect during court; and in the days before our hearing, he took the time to make sure we were well prepared with what to expect as well.
On the day of our hearing, he was incredibly prepared. He knew our case as it pertained to the law backward and forward. He gave emotional encouragement during what turned into a very long and mentally exhausting day, and during the hearing he presented cases to the judge that set precedence for the matter at hand. When all the evidence had been presented, when all the witnesses had been heard, and when closing arguments were all said and done, the end of the day brought closure and security for our family in an ordeal that had lasted way too long. In the end, Quincy helped us win the adoption – the judge ruled the evidence “clear and convincing” – and our son is safe.
Not only was Quincy completely professional, but he was personal, too. We felt like we mattered to him as people, not just as another client paying a bill. When he heard the specifics of our case, he genuinely wanted to help. I think that’s pretty rare in an attorney but we found it refreshing and very reassuring. Quincy McKinney is definitely one of the good ones!
Also, the ladies in the office were a dream to work with – they took every bit of paper evidence we provided (there was a LOT!) and organized it to create a succinct timeline of events. Katie and Kate are very kind and friendly. No matter what kind of situation you are going through, or how many questions you might have, they are always willing to help.
We will be using McKinney and McKinney again when it’s time to draft our Will, and if we ever know of someone who needs a brilliant, compassionate attorney, we will be recommending Quincy McKinney!
McKinney and McKinney did a Guardianship for me. I was very pleased with the results and how quickly it was all done. They were efficient, professional and have wonderful staff helping them who kept me informed of what was happening.
It is scary having to go before a Judge; but they made me feel at ease with their knowledge and presence in the courtroom. I would hire them again in a minute! Worth every penny.
Quincy handled my Custody case and won custody of my daughter for me. He worked very hard on my case and went above and beyond. He was really great about meeting with me, returning my phone calls and keeping me informed about what was happening in my case.
