Excellent Lawyer
My son got in some adult trouble when he was 16. Mr. Mcghee and his staff was not required to even communicate with me but he did. I also didn't make it easy for them. I was a constant pain and him and his staff treated me with respect. The end result turned out well also. He is an excellent attorney that really cares

Excellent experience
Mr. McGhee was very thoughtful during my divorce & child custody case. He was easy to get in touch with, quick to help me understand what my options were, and very respectful of my situation.
