A True Champion
Leland work on my son's high profile murder case, diligently for many years, over 5. He was a court appointed attorney for my son. Leland saw my son's case and immediately wanted to take it to trial. I agreed 100%. My son has mental illness and often didn't even know what's going on around him or what's real. This did not detour Leland in the slightest. He sent him for a mental evaluation to make sure he was okay and to restore him to competency. It was during this time that my son was assigned another attorney. I continued to reach out to Leland and as always he was there. He came back and represented my son and he did everything he said he would do the first day we talked, he fought!! The state was offering my son 30 years, which was not even an option to Leland. He knew he had a case from day one he wanted to fight and his opinion never wavered in this matter. I believe the day of deliberation Leland and my self are the only ones in the entire court room that believe we could or would get a not guilty. We did!!! He's a true professional and does not back down nor is he afraid to fight for what he believes is right. He's got grit and integrity. Integrity is a value that's very hard to find nowadays and that men owns it. I pray to never need a lawyer in the future but I do it'll definitely be Leland. 30 years on the table only offer prosecutors were willing to come with, to NOT GUILTY!!! If he was a boxer he would definitely be heavy weight, coming with that TKO. He puts me in the mind of Cassius Clay, because he tells you what he's going to do and he does it, just doesn't tell you what round he's going to do it in. Just that he's going to do it and he delivers. He helped me through one of the hardest times of my life. I'm truly grateful and blessed to have had him for an attorney for my son.

Outstanding!
This man got a felony and some misdemeanors dismissed without my boyfriend even stepping foot into court. He doesn't call or text me right away but that is okay because he is getting things done and that is all we really care about not to mention he was appointed by the court. That just tells me how serious he is about his proffesion and reputation. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work.

Very pleased. 10/10 recommended!
Mr. McRae was a court appointed lawyer for my boyfriend and did a great job! He was a beacon of hope to us at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed almost impossible. He was fast, efficient and was great with communication all throughout. Mr. McRae was able to bring a 10 year sentence down to a 3 year sentence and got most of my boyfriend’s cases dropped including an aggravated assault within a couple months time span. Not only was he able to defend us from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to us. We are eternally grateful for his service and we recommend him without reservation.

Disappointment
This man ethical capacity is low. Judge ruled that my brother could go home pending he do 6 months at a different jail after hearing my mother plead on behalf of him. This attorney failure to attend the next court leads to a huge blow in the case. He ignored all of our family calls. He also did not give common courtesy to say he was removed from the case. He did not try to rectify the situation. This man is despicable and only goal is to get bad. His website profile basically claim that he will fight for you. This is far from the truth. As an African American man, and he could not be so far removed. It’s people like him that won’t nothing to do with the community unless it benefits him.

Worthless
Its cost me $3500 dollars to get my husband 15 years when he told him to sign for the most time and that he would be out in 18 mths well its been t parole hearings and still my husband isn't home. Hopefully he will get approved for parole this year so he can come home and see his son. If i was you i wouldn't give this lawyer any of your hard working money cuz he wont work to get you what you deserve....

About as bad as it gets as a so called attorney
He represented me for 3 years give or take from may 2018 until around February of 2021. Zero communication skills, he's unprofessional. He basically told me it's too expensive for me to have a jury trial because I was using court appointed attorneys. So because I want a jury trial he allowed my civil rights to be violated multiple times. He doesn't return emails barely returns calls 1 out of 50 maybe. And pretty much you're cooked if he's your attorney. Not to mention I had to find out from the court he was no longer my attorney, he has the professionalism of an @pe
