About Me

I am a former Navy officer, with both active and Reserve service, now retired.  I handle all manner of trial, appellate, and post-conviction matters at the state and federal level, including complex white collar and drug cases.  I have been fortunate enough to have been the recent President of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, and am a Director of the Fort Bend County Criminal Lawyers Association.

  • Kevin D. Fine

    Pat McCann is one of the foremost authorities on appellate and post-conviction remedies in Texas. He is also a fantastic trial lawyer. He is one of the most knowledgable lawyers I know. And his dedication to the rule of law, generally, and justice for his clients, specifically, should be something we all strive for.
