OUR EXPERIENCE. OUR DEDICATION TO HELPING CLIENTS FIGHT FOR JUSTICE & FAIRNESS.

I have handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from Homicide, Racketeering to Aggravated Assault and Weapons offenses, formerly as an Assistant Prosecutor, and now as a defense attorney.  It is important to have adequate legal counsel the moment you learn that you or your loved one is under investigation, or has been arrested for a crime.  Remember, just because you have been arrested does not mean that you have lost your rights. In fact, you are granted the right to legal counsel under the U.S. Constitution. By exercising this right at the earliest point possible, you have the opportunity to  avoid costly mistakes while advancing your defenses. It is equally important that you are on the same page with your attorney, and you are able to fully communicate with each other.   We take pride in helping our clients every step of the way.

AMAZING LAWYER
SHE IS AN AMAZING ATTORNEY, THE BEST IVE EVER HAD..SHE KNOWS THE INTRICACIES OF THE SYSTEM AND HOW IT WORKS. SHE HAS EXPERIENCE, AND SHE TAKES THE TIME TO FIND OUT THE DETAILS. SHE CAN PRESENT HER CASE IN A WAY WHERE ITS EXTREMELY PERSUASIVE. HANDS DOWN THE ONLY LAWYER I WOULD HIRE IF I WAS ON TRIAL AND MY FREEDOM DEPENDED ON IT.

Great lawyer
Ms. McCoy has represented my son on numerous occasions and her dedication to him as a client has been impressive. We hired her because we believe in her ability to do her due diligence and help because she cares deeply about her clients.

Excellent Service
Excellent service, I used this firm to represent my fiancé who is not a stranger to the system and when I tell you that I was so impressed with her service and her representation. I was shopping around for attorneys that could represent him and was getting no where after talking to Tamika McKoy, I knew that this was the firm that I wanted to represent him. I am so happy that I made this choice. She was very knowledgeable and straight forward on what she could do for him and the outcome was what we prayed for. Hopefully, we will never need her services again but if we do I know that we are in good hands.

Talented
I have been Tamika's client for almost 4 years. She was a God send! I'll never forget when Tamika came to visit me in jail... I cried my eye balls out... I had lost EVERYTHING! And she cried with me. She has not only been my lawyer, but my counselor as well. She always made time for me and was always professional. She has a very laxed demeanor. But, don't let that foul you! She is a savage in court. Very creative and astute. You won't be disappointed with Tamika. In fact, you should just stop reading these reviews and just hire her... Just sayin.

Pure Excellence!
Tamika McCoy has been very professional, and an absolutely amazing help to my case. My trial was continued 8 times now and Tamika and I will actually be in court for a nineth and hopefully final court date. Throughout this entire year long ordeal, Tamika has continued to work hard for me and provide her excellent service. She is highly recommended by me, and I will most definitely call her the next time I need legal representation.

There for our family
Tamika was an amazing comfort to our family during one of the worst times of our lives. My son was wrongfully accused of a crime and Tamika explained every step and skillfully guided us through the court system to the end of this excruciating ordeal. Thank you Tamika so much for doing your job so well!.

Completely Satisfied!!
This review is well overdue. Attorney McKoy represented my son earlier this year. From the moment that I made contact with her team, I knew that we were in good hands and had the best legal representation that Camden had to offer. I found her and the team to be highly professional, accessible and knowledgable. They spent much needed time explaining things to us in a digestible manner - making sure that we stayed abreast as the process unfolded. In the end, my son not only got a desirable result, but a mentor! I would recommend Attorney McKoy to anyone seeking a strong, knowledgeable, and compassionate criminal defense attorney (and team).

McKoy Law is on your side!
All I can say is that Tamika Mckoy is the best lawyer. Her law office helped me with all the questions I had about my case each time I stopped by. She went to the court with me many times until my court matter was resolved. She fought hard in my defense and got me the best possible outcome. I was very happy with my service.

Tomika T. McKoy
Ms.Tomika McKoy is an excellent lawyer I can honestly say she gets the job done I want to thank her so much, she represented me in my case and my rights where violated something that happens on the Day-to-Day bases. We sat, I told her my story with complete truth searching for help, soon as I was done explaining what happened she told me I think I got this can't be 100% because there's always a chance it can go either way depending on certain circumstances but the way she just approaches the situation is great from the arguments in the courtroom to the privite conversation to the inspiration to do better! As the case went on I felt more and more comfortable leaving my court dates and again I just wanna thank Ms.McKoy for changing my life and givinge a second chance to better myself

Amazing amazing attorney!!
Ms. McKoy was referred to me by a friend & I have not regretted having her in my corner since the first day. It was amazing to watch how all levels of the courthouse respected her & took her so seriously. She made sure I knew my rights for future situations & wanted to be sure I was treated fairly throughout my ordeal. She showed concern when she saw how my case affected me & stayed optimistic even when I could see no silver lining in my clouds. I am forever grateful for Ms. McKoy & will refer her to anyone in need of legal assistance. I pray more lawyers follow her example because she has made me want to never take for granted this second chance she has given me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ms. McKoy! You will never truly know how much you mean to me.
