After being asked to resign from the position that I held for several years without reprimand or complaint, I was hesitant to contact an attorney. Mr. McKinney's office contacted me shortly after I submitted my contact and were able to meet with me within days. Chris McKinney's demeanor and apparent professionalism put me at ease immediately. His advice was invaluable and brought to my attention areas of my contract that would make it troublesome for me to move on within my given industry. As he collected the information to build the 'case', if it were to be needed, he payed careful and thoughtful attention to the personalities involved and developed a strategy and approach that yielded an extremely successful response and outcome.
At a time that was both professionally and emotionally stressful, Mr. McKinney made me feel empowered and ensured that my best interests were being well protected. The level of communication was fantastic and was never lacking. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of negotiations or status of the resulting relationships. This experience made me realize the importance of having a professional that will approach the matter with respect on your side.
Chris McKinney and his staff receive my highest recommendation. With great tact and skill Chris represented me in a challenging case where i was being falsely accused. The outcome and settlement exceeded my expectations. More importantly, Chris helped me to remain calm and focused on my career, resulting in a new position at a better company. Thank you Chris, great job sir!
WOW, Mr. Mckinney was referred to me, by Tom Crane. He took his time to review my case and kept it "REAL", with my case chances of winning. He is a quick thinking with the case and provided sound opinion. I got my money’s worth and then some.
My experience with this law firm has been wonderful! Mr. McKinney is kind, compassionate and extremely organized. I think he should teach a class to other attorneys regarding his filing system and communication with clients. Alana is the sweetest assistant and truly cares about you as an individual. I highly recommend them! Shelly
Chris took my case when two other lawyers told me that my former employer was simply too big a company for them to fight against. Chris was honest with me from the start and let me know that this case would not be an "easy to settle" type of case. He would only take my case if I understood we would need to go all the way to trial. He was right - the case took a long time. But we finally went to trial and he was great! He really talked to the jury and did a good job explaining my case. We won and then settled on appeal. Thanks Chris.
I was referred to Chris by a colleague to assist me with a lawsuit that was filed against me by a former employer. From the very beginning, he was very helpful in explaining how the whole process would work and what to expect moving forward. He was diligent in maintaining contact with the opposing counsel and serving as my voice as we went through negotiations on a settlement. Chris was very proactive in explaining the drafts that we received with both what should be accepted and declined, but always allowed me to share any thoughts or concerns that I had, and was timely in replying to the opposition. He was able to prepare me for the deposition and I was very comfortable and relaxed going through a nerve-wracking process. I can say without hesitate or reservation, I would use him again because of his professionalism, diligence, helpfulness, and sense of humor.
Can't say enough about Mr. McKinney. He is great lawyer and I always felt like he cared about me and my situation. I went through a very difficult situation at work that led ultimately to a lawsuit. I had been with a different lawyer who would never return my calls or let me know what the status of my case was. I got my file back from him and hired Mr. McKinney. He told me plain what my situation was and always kept me informed on what was going on in my case. I was very happy with the settlement he got for me too. Needless to say I would definitely recommend him to a friend.
