Exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to finding a lawyer
McCarthy went above and beyond in representing me in court. He always made sure to explain what was going on in a way I could understand and made me feel confident at all times that the matter was being dealt with appropriately. Not only did he keep me out of trouble once, but another time he actually referred me to another attorney he knew to represent me and that case was successful as well. When you hire McCarthy you’re hiring a friend who knows the system and will do anything to help you out .
