Mr. McKinney handled my divorce and child custody. I think dads have an uphill battle in these situations. I was not optimistic at the start if this most difficult process. Mitch was honest, persistant and direct in his advice. I didn't always like what he had to say, but I followed his recommendations and I am now a VERY happy single dad having all of my children now living with me. From the start, Mitch was very concerned about the kids and their physical and emotional well being. He utilized his resources well and was very responsive to my calls and questions. I recommend Mitch McKinney without reservation and feel fortunate to have had his expertise in bringing to closure what was a very difficult time in my life.

When I decided to get a divorce, I didn’t know where to start. I asked a few close friends for recommendations, but that got me nowhere. I then contacted a couple local attorneys, but they weren’t available to meet with me for two-three weeks. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Mitchell McKinney’s services. On that very same day, I was able to speak with him directly. He could sense that I was eager to start the process and scheduled an appointment with me right away.
Mr. McKinney conducted himself in a very professional manner and was extremely knowledgeable about the legal system. Divorce isn’t easy… Mr. McKinney was very conscientious about my situation. He made himself accessible and responded to all my questions & concerns within a timely manner. Most importantly, he made sure I was treated more than fairly and truly looked out for my best interest.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone…
