I successfully recovered compensation due to Kevin McKie’s unyielding commitment and determination
Firstly, I would like to thank Kevin McKie and the entire Environmental Litigation Group team for the excellent legal services they provided while I was going through the most difficult moments of my life. Not only is Mr. McKie extremely professional and skilled, but he is also a very caring and compassionate man who did everything possible to help me recover compensation in a shorter time and who took a personal interest in my case ever since the beginning. To say that Mr. McKie is a good asbestos litigation lawyer is an understatement. He is the best! If asbestos has taken away your health, you at least deserve financial compensation. Please contact this amazing attorney and you will not be disappointed.

Exceptional legal services!
Kevin McKie and the ELG staff were incredibly helpful and eager to do all they could to recover the compensation I desperately needed to pay for my cancer treatment and surgery. The idea of taking legal action has always put me off and I tried to avoid it as best as I could, but eventually, I was left with no other option than to file a claim, as I couldn’t afford to pay for all the procedures. Attorney McKie has undoubtedly changed my negative perception of lawyers by providing excellent and prompt services, calmly answering all my questions and going to great lengths to speed up the process. He is also very compassionate and understood what I was going through emotionally. I was advised to file with more asbestos trust funds to recover a larger sum of money and sure enough, my claim was approved shortly after. Words cannot express how grateful I am for having had Kevin McKie take care of my case. He is a highly skilled, competent and caring lawyer and I’d recommend him to anyone who needs legal counseling.

Quality legal representation and utmost professionalism
Kevin McKie is without a doubt a true expert when it comes to environmental litigation. I was very hesitant to seek legal assistance at the beginning since I was aware how complex and demanding my case would be, but at my family’s repeated suggestion, I decided to do it. My case was indeed as complicated as I’d thought, but this didn’t stop Mr. McKie to invest all his energy into solving it. I can honestly say I’ve never met such a passionate and competent lawyer who was also very honest since the beginning about how long my case would take to reach a resolution. Receiving compensation is your right and I strongly encourage everyone whose health was destroyed by these toxic exposures to take action. Mr. McKie is definitely the go-to attorney and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results!

Outstanding legal services!
If you need a good attorney for your asbestos case, look no more! Kevin McKie is undoubtedly the most knowledgeable personal injury attorney you can get if you live in the Southern U.S. After my mother was diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer as a result of secondary exposure, we promptly sought a competent attorney who could help her recover financial compensation. We had to talk with several other lawyers who were quite reluctant to help us because the case was very difficult before coming across Mr. Mckie, whose confidence and willingness to help surprised us. Mr. Mckie is a very methodical attorney who took the time to get us through each step of the process and was completely honest about how long it would take until my mother could receive the money. His experience with asbestos-related cases is apparent and he is very transparent, informed and client-oriented. We couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! The process went better than we’d expected and thanks to Mr. Mckie’s skills, the claim was accepted and my mother was given the compensation she needed.

A very resourceful and skilled attorney
To be honest, I was very skeptical about the outcome of my case in the beginning. I knew next to nothing about the legal process and I was afraid it was going to extend over the course of at least one year. As soon as I met attorney Kevin McKie, my perspective changed entirely and I was positive he was going to achieve the best results for me. He promptly answered all my questions, explained what every step of the process involved and at the end of our first meeting, everything seemed so much simpler to me. I didn’t need to do anything else besides bringing proof of my medical and work history and tell Mr. Mckie and his team all I could remember about exposure to asbestos. They took care of everything in an amazingly short amount of time and I am forever grateful for their services.
