Mr McLain was incredibly helpful to me in understanding my options and was instrumental in negotiating a fair and acceptable outcome for me in my negotiation. Great hands to be in! His understanding of how things work in the world, leads him to be very kind and honest about what's best for his clients. Knowing one's options is important to making decisions and taking control of one's life. I feel my career is on a better path because of his negotiation help.
Andrew is definitely knowledgeable but is also not in a rush to get your case closed or to keep you informed. Don't expect him to return calls or emails, or to be efficient with proceedings and let you know when your assistance is required (signing papers, giving info, etc.).
You will be waiting endlessly with no communication as to the status of your case or when you should expect any sort of movement in your case. Lastly, he loses information (which may be the fault of assistants) and does not inform you that he will need it again unless you ask for an update on your case.
We have had Andy as our attorney since our oldest was about 6 till a year ago, now 12. We are grateful to Andy for his transparency and wisdom. He is honest about the system and looking out for the best interest of your child and you his client. Our case was challenging because of the other party and their abuse, but I must say Andy was firm when he needed to be and fought the good fight for our son and his safety. I highly recommend him to represent you. I was looking up his info today to give to a friend and felt compelled to write this review. I can't give him enough accolades for what he has done for our son and our family. He also helped my husband so much and the fact that he really knew us, I am eternally grateful! I also cannot tell you how much we love and appreciate Jamela, who works with Andy. Both Andy and Jamela, we adore!
