About me

I have been a lawyer for 30 years.  I have tried just about every kind of case a lawyer can try.  My working philosophy - nobody walks into my office to tell me how great their day has been.  Typically, my clients have been devastated physically, emotionally or financially (or some combination of the three).  I see my role as not just to try their case, but also to guide them through the process.  I take a lot of pride in both aspects and have had the privilege of practicing with two guys over the past 25 years who feel the same way.

  • Gregory Edward Vaughan

    I've worked with Mr. Mackey on several matters. I consider him to be one of the best litigators in the local bar. He knows how to efficiently prepare a case for trial and I regularly seek his advice. You can't go wrong hiring him to resolve your legal matter.
