Attorney Bernie McEvoy is an exceptionally thoughtful and caring legal professional as well as an all around super nice human being. On Friday, April 27, 2018, Attorney Bernie McEvoy’s advocacy gave me my life back after a nightmarish year and a half. A highly respected Sumner County judge dismissed some very serious charges against me. In open court, the visibly angry judge ruled that certain members of the Hendersonville Police Department and members of the District Attorney’s office acted with “gross negligence”, “violated several of my constitutional rights” and “were prejudicial” in the handling of my arrest and attempted bogus prosecution.
For those not familiar with the law, here’s the legal definition of gross negligence: “Gross negligence is a conscious and voluntary disregard of the need to use reasonable care, which is likely to cause foreseeable grave injury or harm to persons, property, or both. It is conduct that is extreme when compared with ordinary Negligence, which is a mere failure to exercise reasonable care.”
Attorney McEvoy’s diligence, knowledge of the law and research abilities were praised by the judge during the motions to dismiss. When I retained Mr. McEvoy to represent me, he promised to give me the quality of representation that he would “give to his own son had he been charged with those crimes.” I can say that, he did!
No one coerced me to write this review but I feel the need to recommend Attorney Bernie McEvoy to anyone needing very high quality legal representation. God bless you, Sir, and thank you for being my advocate through this very difficult period of my life.
