    Posted by Andrew

    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. I called other offices before deciding on Patrick and all they cared about was the money. Patrick work with on a payment plan.

    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.

    Mr. Mclain guided me through the hardest part of my life. I had spent almost 5 years in the Marine Corps when I received false allegations of illegal drug use (positive urinalysis). I mistakenly made a statement to CID and then started hunting for lawyer afterwards. I interviewed multiple lawyers before I found Patrick and I immediately retained him after our consultation. Under his counsel I:

    -Denied NJP and demanded a court martial
    -Dealt with unlawful command influence (which I feel like is something that happens in a lot of commands for similar cases)
    -Built an outstanding case for retention
    -When the command did not pursue a court martial, we spent countless hours preparing for the administrative separation board that followed
    -Got retained in the USMC and will be discharged honorably next week

    I very highly doubt I would have achieved this outcome if not for the expertise and experience of Mr. Mclain. During the legal process you will be expected to be 100% honest and forthcoming with him and you will need to do everything he tells you to do. These two parts essential for an outcome in your favor. He will fight as hard as he can for you and will always be on your side.

    Hiring Mr. Mclain was the smartest decision I ever made because my career is priceless to me. He saved my GI bill (which is worth a $100,000 alone), my security clearance, and the prestige of having served honorably. If you are facing allegations, there is no one better to have on your side than Patrick Mclain. It was not only an honor to have a man of this caliber represent me, but to even know him as well. Look no further, he is the best.

    I hired Patrick J. McLain in April 2014 after consulting with a handful of other lawyers who never had any confidence in my case. I had an extremely difficult case where the military was going all out against me. I was facing sexual assault charges, being a registered sex offender for life, confinement and a bad conduct discharge. I was blasted in the media by the military and my case made national news. It was the most terrifying experience in my life. Patrick took me under his wing and made me feel like I was a part of his own family. He got me fully engaged in my case instead of just watching it from the sidelines. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable of Military Law and a very hard working person. He conducted my defense brilliantly and always seemed to be 10 steps ahead of the prosecutor. After a four day trial I was found NOT GUILTY. I would highly recommend Mr. McLain to anyone who needs a good military defense lawyer. Patrick I can't thank you enough for the devotion and time you put into my case. Thank you!!!

    It has been one year now since Mr. McLain helped rescue me from the worst experience I have ever gone through in my entire life. Furthermore, there is a reason that I remember it so well. I remember feeling like there was no hope and that no matter what I said, nobody would believe me or give me the opportunity to talk. After going through lawyer after lawyer, I finally found someone who I could believe in. It was none other than Mr. Patrick McLain whom I felt I could truly trust. His confidence, persistence and reliability allowed me to realize that I had made the right choice. He gave me the opportunity to provide insight into my own case so that he could understand me better. He cared, he was honest, and he put in the time and effort to do what it takes. The world can be cruel, and there are times in life when everyone needs help. Mr. McLain, I just want to tell you thank you, and thank you for caring. I can now continue on my military career just as I was and continue to do great things. My wife, four children & I are doing great! I consider you not only a great person both personally and professionally, but also a friend. From myself and my family, Thank you!
