With the Mcminn you win
Last November , I was involved in a hit and run accident , the cops on the location of the accident , my insurance agent, and a famous lawyer told me I have no case since I was not able to identify the driver, days later I called the mcminns office , I was in fOr a surprise , not only all my bills covered , but I also received a big Check, both Justin and Jason were passionate , honest, and hard working lawyers, kept me informed all the time, didn't have to chase them down to get an answer like you do with other lawyers. I want to say thank u vey much for delivering on you promise, and making it easy on me

Fantastic Law Firm!
In May 2011, my small car was rear-ended and totaled by a large truck on my way to school. As a Kindergarten teacher in the middle of the most stressful time of the year, I knew I needed legal advice with my injuries and insurance company battles. I researched law firms in the Austin area and I came across the McMinn Law firm. From the first encounter with Jason and Justin all the way to the settlement of the case, they took care of everything related to the accident and my personal well-being seamlessly. They made the mess of a car accident and personal injury case clear and simple, and reduced my worries to none. They are professional, honest and extremely good at what they do. I would highly recommend the McMinn Law firm to anyone in need of legal services for all specialty areas listed on their site and encourage you to contact them if you are searching for help. Again, Thank you!

I was in a serious accident and used the McMinn firm to assist me. They felt like family to me. I’m an older woman and had a million questions. They researched and answered all my questions, no matter how trivial they were. The final heroic thing was the mediation session. As I sat and listened, I was in awe and they ensured that I received far more than I anticipated.

Client
I’m so glad I went with McMinn for my personal injury claim. After being seriously injured in a car accident I went with the McMinn law firm to represent me for my injuries. The firm was quick, responsive, and diligent. They made sure all my questions were answered, helped me with the entire process, and made the case easy for me. I never could have expected the large settlement they were able to get from the at-fault insurance company. Thank you McMinn!

Best Law Firm in Austin
I can not say enough great things about the McMinn Law Firm and support staff. Throughout the entire process for a year and a half, every question and need was provided for me. I was never left without a question or concern being unanswered. If you have an injury, I recommend and suggest you speak and retain the McMinn Law firm.

Professional Care
I wanted to take a minute and thank the McMinn Law Firm for their professionalism and care in handling my personal injury case. After my first meeting I knew I had selected the best lawyers to represent my case and would find resolution and justice the right way. I am very thankful to the entire staff for taking such a negative event in my life and making it a positive, giving me the confidence to seek restitution and providing the comfort that I would be represented and cared for as if I was one of their own.

Thank you millions Justin!
The McMinn brothers are amazing in what they do. Everything was explained in detail and they set the right expectations for me. My case was traumatizing to me since the accident involved my 4 year old daughter. Mediation went great and Justin and our mediator Greg explained everything. The case was a total of 7 long months but I am greatful it was ONLY 7 months, it could have well been 1 to 3 years. My daughter walks away in better conditions and we can put it all behind us. I truly thank you Justin.

A weight has been lifted
August 15, 2014 I was rear ended at high speed by an underage drunk driver with a BAC over 3 times the legal limit. My car had been flipped upside down and was totaled. When I got out of the hospital I wasn't sure what to do. Then I found The McMinn Law firm. When I went to their office, they heard my story, they read the accident report, and they took no time at all to decide I had a case. They took care of me, and I trusted that they knew what they were doing, and that trust was WELL placed. They called me more than I called them. They sent me to fantastic specialists for physical therapy and pain management and I paid nothing out of pocket. In the end I got a GREAT settlement. It was more than I could have hoped for. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The McMinn Law Firm are no nonsense, and they do right by their clients.

I highly recommend anyone hiring McMinn Law Firm when you are involved into car accident At the time I drove home from work . The other car ran through the red light and slammed it into my car . Luckily I am still alive to see my family and friends . The only bad things about this accident that brought to you : so stressful , loss time of works , confused . Every nights you awoke on the middle of night felt so alone, isolated and wonder what to do . You thought your misery life is over , but it is not over yet. The next few days the other insurance's party will call you and asking you all kinds of the questions which created more stressful to your life. Other words they are using highly tactics ( propaganda ) words to put fears into your brain to make you felt as guilty as other that make you scared to gave up the fight for your right .. I was fortunate to have McMinn Law Firm represent on my side and they stand up for you to get the result . You are not alone . When you are so confused and doubtful , don't know what to do ? always asking someone out there like McMinn Law Firm . They will help you out. I strongly recommend you to give them a call , talk to them, you will surprise McMinn Law Firm will fight for you to get the resulted at the end. Thanks McMinn Law Firm for all your help. The Pham's family.

*Blessed to Have Hired the McMinn Law Firm*
When I became aware that I was going to be required to hire a lawyer for my DWI arrest in September of 2012, I didn't know where to look or start. I didn't know anyone in Austin that I would be able to get recommendations from. So I did what most do, is look at reviews, which whom the McMinn Law Firm was first that caught my attention. Although I received many many letters from other attorneys in my mailbox offering their services for less than what McMinn was charging, I stuck to my gut. I am glad I did!! It wasn't a cheap ride, but if you are reading this and have had a DWI arrest, you know it isn't a cheap ride period!! It was well worth it because I got my DWI Dismissed!!! I consider myself lucky!!! They were always willing to work with my personal situations I had going on and very understanding. They never made me feel as if I was a criminal, they stuck by my side the whole way through. My case could have been cleared and done with last month in APril but was prolonged due to perosnal reasons, but I could say was faster than than the average time it takes to settle a case.

McMinn wins cases!
After one firm failed to work a resolution while having the case for two years, and when no other attorney would take on my challenging case; Justin took the case on and dug in! He and Jason were able to have a summary judgment for dismissal filed by the defense thrown out. Texas has stringent indemnification protection rules for business. McMinn was able to litigate a successful settlement in spite of the challenges.
