After many years (yes I said years) of battle in a divorce case in Wake County and working with some of the self proclaimed "family law experts" in family law (several different attorneys) I had a friend recommend that I call Floyd which I did. Floyd reviewed my case and agreed to accept it and from the moment he took my case the attorney on the other end changed their tune and aggressive behavior toward me. Floyd is well respected when he steps in the court too and his reputation precedes him. He didnt bill me for the mystical services of the previous family law attorneys I had and didn't argue the case the way HE thought it should be argued rather asked my best scenario for an outcome and worked to that end. All in all I retained Floyd for about 2 years and through several court appearances which were very stressful we came out on top. I now call Floyd a friend.

Having to divorce after many years of marriage, I knew that I needed a very good attorney to obtain a fair outcome. A detective with whom I am acquainted referred me to Floyd McKissick, whose handling of my case produced results which far exceeded what I expected. His experience and expertise clearly demonstrated to me what an exceptional attorney he is and how well respected he is in the courts. Again greatly in need of legal assistance, my teenage daughter was involved in a fatal auto accident determined by law enforcement to be her fault so I consulted with Floyd. After carefully examining the facts of the case, he assured me that he would take care of it as if she were his own daughter and then proceeded to produce the best possible outcome, a dismissal. I stand by attorney Floyd B. McKissick Jr. as the best ever!
