He has successfully prosecuted class actions in State and Federal court, representing consumers against big business on a wide variety of claims, including disputes focusing on overcharges for goods or services, breaches of contract, negligence, fraud, deceptive trade practices and insurance matters.

When he is faced with a new problem he dives in with gusto. When you talk with Gavin he doesn't make you feel small or stupid. He resolved our legal matter in the best way. a good guy to know.

Gavin Mcinnis: An attorney you can trust
Mr. Gavin Mcinnis is an Excellent attorney, I have known many when I was a Deputy Sheriff for Bexar County and no one can compare with him in my book. A honest, respectable, caring and sincere human being. It is hard to find those qualities and traits in the attorney profession. He handled the case in a profession manner and most important of all-he listened and shared our loss and suffering. I would strongly recommend Mr. Mcinnis to others. Gavin was my sounding board and he cared enough to just sit and listen and at the same time make remarks which would have me laughing and smiling when I was down. Gavin made a connection with my whole family. He provided information and kept us aware of what that information meant. A wonderful person and excellent attorney. We were very satisfied with his service
