I was in the process of seeking and interviewing various attorneys to: a) initiate and start building a long term professional relationship for any legal/business needs I have now or, in the future, and b) to help address some specific legal questions I had about some prior business dealings. I was in contact with a live person upon my first call to Patrick's office and within the first hour of ever contacting him and his team, I received an email confirming my consultation appointment and a follow-up call directly from Patrick providing me with his cell phone number and an invitation to reach out to him on any day, at any hour (no matter how late). Patrick was professional, concise and to-the-point during my consultation and he answered all of my questions clearly. When it comes to legal and business matters, you need someone that is responsive and reliable; Patrick and his team have made an excellent first impression and I will be using his professional services again if and when there is a need.

I was being held at a Special Court Martial and facing forfeiture of two-thirds basic pay per month for one year, one year confinement and a bad-conduct discharge. The charges being accused were two specifications of wrongful abuse of a controlled substance and one charge of assualt. At first I was skeptical to hire a civilian lawyer because of the funds. Patrick and his law office helped me to understand that should be the least of my worries when your future is in jeopardy and you're looking for a strong fight and people who actually care. Would you rather be capable of making the money back to pay off your debts or never making enough to be successful enough to support a/your family because you were found guilty of charges be forced against you. On short notice and just weeks before being held at a Special Court Martial in the United States Air Force I contacted Patrick and his team. They jumped on board with lighting speed and helped to assure I was in good hands. My court martial was pushed back and it gave me space to breathe a little and know I was going to be taken care of. Patrick McLain's office contacted me every week to check on me and make sure I was in the loop and taken care of full circle. Leading up to my court martial and being relieved of duty for 9 months was one of the most stressful and darkest stages of my life. Going through all that Patrick and his team made sure I was given the treatment I needed to keep a steady head through the process. Nothing was sugar coated with Patrick though so if you can't take a little father son/daughter stern talk then you might as well find someone else. The stern talks to me were a huge plus! It helps you realize he isn't messing around and if he can give you a little butt ripping then what'd you think he can do in that court room! Heading into my Special Court Martial Partick and his law office were working hand and hand with my Area Defense Counsel out of Travis AFB. They spent late nights reviewing every piece of my case and making sure there was nothing left untouched. In the court room it showed. Patrick didn't leave anything unquestioned. Patrick was active and always on his feet to object, he never gave up. It wasn't just about the court room though. Even after a long day of fighting my case he took the time to get to know me on a personal level and understand me as a person with dinner. Patrick is a lawyer that is there for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Without his help I don't know where I'd be. Coming to the end of my Special Court Martial I was found guilty on one charge. I was given a Letter Of Reprimand(LOR), lowered to E-1 from E-2 and just one month confinement. I can't thank Patrick and his team enough for what they did for me and the time they put in to make sure I was in good hands. If I could put more than 5 stars I would!

Simply put, Patrick McLain is an amazing attorney! From the start he looked over my case and the accusations being leveled against me and he recognized that there was more to what happened than what was on paper. He gave me a very detailed description of what to expect throughout the legal process and was always there to keep me informed about my case. One thing you will need to do is be open and honest about your case with him. He wants to know the good, the bad, and the ugly so that he can best defend you. He spent numerous hours working with me on the case including a four day workshop that allowed us to both better understand the events that led to the charges against me, but also helped me in many more ways beyond just the case. Needless to say, the case was dropped. His staff was helpful throughout and always helped me in answering any questions that I had. I felt that I was in good hands with him representing me and if you want more than just representation, but a lawyer that will care about you as a person and represent your case as though it was his career on the line, Patrick McLain is who you want to represent you!

There are not enough words to express my deep gratitude to Mr. Patrick McLain. He is an outstanding attorney! He is an attorney that will fight for his client until the very end. For two years, he was not only my attorney but someone that I could count on through my ups and downs. I completely trusted him with my case. Mr. McLain was always there to answer any of my questions or concerns. He was also very supportive of my family as we were all affected by my situation. He was truly, as my parents will say, "our rock". I was very pleased with the attention to detail and the personalized service I received during this difficult time. Furthermore, his staff is the best! Thank you Ms. Janine for always keeping me informed. Mr. McLain is not only a great attorney but also an outstanding Christian family man.

Patrick was a wondeful lawyer his team was so kind and courtesy. When ever i had a question and needed to talk to someone abouy my Case i could pick up the phone and call patrick or the office and get the help i needed.

From day one Patrick will be on your side and make sure you are informed every step of the way. He will fight for you and present all the options good and bad so that you are fully aware of the circumstances surrounding your case. He will listen and do what you tell him to do and his staff will work their hardest for you.

I would recommend Patrick to everyone. He is the best, and resolved my Domestic case dropped and dismissed at Grand Jury. Before I decided to hire him I have consoled with other 3 criminal lawyers, but I chose him even he is more expensive than everyone else. I chose him because I felt so confident with him, way he handled very professional. He is trust and his staffs very helpful, they response to my questions, emails effectively and quickly. It worth the money to hire Patrick McClain.

For the past year and half I have been through the hardest ordeal in my military career. I was facing multiple charges in a Special Court Martial. Not having any experience in legal matters I needed someone with the knowledge and experience in Military Law not only to represent me, but also to fight for my 26-year military career. Mr. Patrick McLain was that individual; someone I could trust and who guided me every step of the way. He held me accountable to study my own case and ensured I provided all facts that were necessary to ensure a favorable outcome. I must say, I truly believe that God put Mr. McLain in my path at the time when I needed solid legal representation the most. I highly recommend Mr. McLain to anyone who is facing any legal actions against them; he is truly a professional and a dear friend to my family and me. Thank you for all you have done for us.

I was in need of a voice. One that would be heard and never forgotten. I was facing special court marshal and multiple charges that would make most throw their hands up and give up and plea. My name needed to be cleared and all I wanted was to find someone who would fight for me and my 15 year career. I called multiple people and asked "if I did not hire you, who would you recommend". Patrick's name was the constant. I needed to go through this with a clear conscience afterward no matter what the verdict was. I was not getting any good feelings from my military lawyer so I called Patrick. He is a no non sense man who wants to work hard for you. I hired him and immediately the weight of my trial was put off my shoulders. I fell into a dark place and Patrick was my light out. During the pre trial my military lawyer had a Marine Corps required training seminar. The guest was Patrick. I knew right there I had picked the best man for my defense. At trial Patrick picked apart the prosecution and left so much for the jury to think on, it was a work of art. My name was cleaned that day. I'm able to hold my head up high and continue my service. Thank you Mr.Mclain.

Patrick saved my career!!! I am a Navy officer whose urinaylis results were found positive for a prescription painkiller -------one that was not my prescribed medication. The reason for the results was found to be not due to misconduct; I am retiring under honorable conditions and will enjoy the benefits I have earned via many years of hard work and sacrifice.
The BEST decision I ever made was to hire Patrick Mclain as my lawyer. After telling me to keep my mouth shut (and I am glad I did!) He immediately made contact with the local JAG officers and my chain-of-command and forced the due process to occur.
In the week and a half after I was informed of the urinaylis results and prior to my contacting Patrick Mclain, I was removed from important tasking and meetings and, uninvited from a conference that had an agenda focused on my area of responsibility. After Patrick's notification of being my attorney, the more blatant exclusionary treatment stopped. I have always been a top-performer and a member of the "inner- circle;" it has been very humbling to experience how quickly one can become a pariah.
Patrick was available to me at any time-- I was able to call him late at night and on weekends. He knows military law and the machinations of military personnel administration thoroughly. His expert knowledge and experience helped me fight what looked like an inevitable career-ender. His absolute commitment to my case gave me the confidence to keep working and performing at the high-level I always had.
