If you’re accused of a crime, hire Mr. McLain. You won’t find someone that works harder to keep you out of a cage. I’ve had Mr. McLain on my case for over 18 months due to a continuation, and he never stopped picking away at any possible government case. His closing argument alone was worth every penny. If you’re looking for someone to hold your hands and comfort you, go see a therapist. If you want someone to fight your case, hire Mr. McLain, and do what he tells you.

Military Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) Superhero
This man and his team are true superheroes! I can never thank him and his colleagues enough for working around my busy schedule as a fulltime worker and mom, and even flying across country to accommodate my family's needs for a full day of prep and the formal PEB. Due to the outstanding efforts of Mr. McLain and his staff I was able to medically retire from the military rather than receive a severance package and forced separation following 14+ years of service in Active and Reserve components. Not only did I retire from reserve duty, but due to his expert knowledge on these matters - he was able to send shockwaves through my family when he identified at the end of the formal PEB, that I would be receiving a full Active Army medical retirement because my 'issues/injuries" occurred while on active duty. There will never be enough words to say how thankful we are - we highly recommend Mr. Mclain and his team.

General court martial case
Patrick McLain literally saved my life. I was facing a allegation that carried a life sentence and would have torn me from my family. The opposition was highly motivated to nail me to the wall due to today’s climate of victim hood I was in a perilous position. Patrick is a busy man and so his approach is not tender, but if you need someone to fight a war for you it is not tenderness you need. He is straightforward, honest, and surprisingly emotionally invested in his cases and clients. The man never sleeps. If your case can be won he will win it like he did for me. If it can not be won, he will guide you to the best conclusion. It may hurt but trust this man. I pray I never again need his services but I know who my first call will always be when it comes to legal manners. In regards to Mr McLain reputation. From what I observed he is highly regarded amongst the premiere defense lawyers across the country and I retained his service at the recommendation of a top tier defense lawyer who did not work military cases. In regards to his courtroom tactics. Mr McLain went to war with a prosecutor who used ever dirty trick in the book. The straight up lied and omitted evidence. I have no idea how any of it was legal. Mr McLain remained focused and calm. He always found a way to have the prosecutor pay for their mistakes. We did not win every battle in the court room, due in my opinion to a very biased judge but when the case closed I was found NOT GUILTY on all charges. We won the war. With all the respect in the world, I love you Mr McLain. Thanks for giving me back my life.

Just Outstanding
I reached out to many lawyers in Dallas on behalf of my son, a young soldier on active duty. The only person to return my calls was Patrick McClain. His legal team, Eric and Jose, were outstanding, producing the best possible result, case dismissed before pretrial. This firm has a heart for those who serve and have done so. I cannot recommend them too much.

BEST DEFENSE ATTORNEY
I was facing a terrible situation that could have resulted in my life being completely destroyed. Patrick Mclain and his law firm took me in and became the family and protection needed. Mr. Mclain I meant every word I said to you the day we met in Minneapolis. I was struggling to hold things together and you stood firm during a time I had no hope or faith. I will never forget you and your law firm. I strongly believe that your presence kept myself protected during this terrible time. Your legal expertise and aggressive nature gave me the confidence to sit still and let the investigation run its course. Thank you.

Professional, aggressive, reliable
Mr.McLain and his staff saved my career and future when I was going against the government in a special (short) martial in Okinawa, Japan. Explaining my story over the phone was difficult but he was patient with me to paint a good picture of situation. He explained everything he was doing for me and left me with clear instructions if he needed something from me. In the court room he was aggressive and determined to prove our side which led to a not guilty verdict on all charges.

Outstanding individual
Mr. McLain took my case during the height of the Covid pandemic. From thousands of miles away, he was able to put together a case which ultimately resulted in a Not Guilty verdict and acquittal of 3 separate charges. He dealt with a 14 hour time difference among a list of obstacles. He is not only a well spoken, smart, and confident attorney, he is a great man overall. I cannot express how much I appreciate this man. I would hire him again in any situation without question. Absolutely recommend.

Harrison, it was an honor being your advocate. I know it was a scary process, but you now understand how right it was to refuse nonjudicial punishment, demand trial by court-martial, and hire an attorney who will fight for you. Do not be a stranger; stay in touch. Semper Fi, Patrick McLain

Extraordinary Lawyer
Mr. McLain is a true warrior who will fight for you every step of the way! His representation got me out of a nightmare of multiple unreasonable false accusations. I was in a panic when it started. He helped my wife, and I though this difficult time. After two long days in trial we won what we fought for. It meant a lot to me when he said I was worth it. Mr. McLain gave it his all fighting for me. In the courtroom, he will outsmart anyone. This is a man who will give you his fullest attention. He was always available to take my call anytime no matter what day or time of the week.

There is no one better to be at you side against the Government than Patrick McLain. His reputation for knowledge about all matters is above reproach to a point Judges listen and agree with his interpretation of the law.

UCMJ Case
Patrick was the lead member of my defense team. To say he was a professional attorney is obvious. What I never expected was the tone of the defense. Before hiring him, my attorney was set solely upon the facts of the case and ignored the person I am. Patrick took me at my most vulnerable, painful time and helped me not only understand the case ahead of us but also helped me through my own personal struggles. I went in to this with my head hung low and my will to fight broken. I emerged a stronger man, husband, and father. Patrick never bullshit me about the facts of the case and laid everything out. At times, I felt overwhelmed by the magnitude of it all. Through all that pain and stress, Patrick ensured I persevered. He built me up stronger than I had been before the charges were levied and I can press forward with my head held high. Because of the actions we undertook, I better understand myself and how to overcome the underlying cause of the charges. His help went beyond the court room and has made a lifelong impact on myself and my family. Win, lose, draw, Patrick has changed my life for the better.

Patrick took my case in 2018 and worked with me through 2019. Against all odds Patrick and his team worked endlessly with me on my case, never left me in the dark, communicated constantly with me and in the end he brought one hell of fight to the prosecutor on my case. My fight became his fight and I never felt like I was just his client. I owe everything to Patrick.

My Hero’s
Patrick and his team are a god send. I came in with a box of paperwork, scared, and desperate. I needed someone to save us, and Patrick and his amazing team have done just that. They are highly professional, and are easy to work with. They get things done, and never felt like they had forgotten us. Weekly, sometimes daily phone calls checking up on us, giving us updates. They really show how invested they are. He listened, he was honest, he gave us hope when we were lost. He and the team have worked tirelessly on our case. There isn’t enough praise I can give that would be enough to truthfully express what he and the team has done for us and mean to us.

Amazing Lawyer who fights for you!
A tremendous lawyer in a time of need. After being accused of conduct unbecoming an officer for personal conduct while off duty, I hired Mr. McLain to help me through the process. He diligently worked behind the scenes to make sure my voice was being heard. Despite my inability to listen to his direction early on, Mr. Mclain was patient and continued to fight on my behalf. Mr. McLain helped me win at a board of inquiry with no other disciplinary action. A sincere man, who is dedicated to his clients. Would strongly recommend and is a great asset to military clients everywhere.

Goes above and beyond
I hired Patrick after my first lawyer failed to communicate and help me through my initial summary court martial. The first lawyer I hired left me in the dark and was mostly unable to communicate due to him handling other cases. Unlike my first lawyer Patrick and his team communicated to me about everything. Patrick also gave me spot on advice and went over his plan to help me get the best outcome out of my summary court martial, including getting witnesses to vouch for my work ethic which I didn’t think were allowed to testify on my behalf for a summary court martial. Thanks to Patrick he helped me understand the whole process and answered any questions or doubts I had about my case. Patrick knows his stuff and has the experience to prove it.
