Found this gentleman through referral from someone who sought him out and ended up using him on Avvo, so we got on this site, found his contact info, were able to investigate his background and experience, along with what others have said about him. I found this site quite useful, well organized and very helpful. Thank you.
After speaking with this attorney, however, we decided we will definitely use him, later. I found him to be quick witted, professional, didn't waist time, asked many questions, and was honest when telling me whether he thought it was worth my time and money to go forward with our action or not, I appreciated him steering us away from taking on a legal path, at the time, since he felt it would not have been a prudent investment, but rather we "should wait until the timing was right". He also addressed issues we had not yet thought of, so that makes me think he is a forward thinker.
My family and I have found so many attorneys, who are more than ready and waiting, with their hands out and pocket books open, to take that initial payment, telling you in the beginning you're sure to "win" or you "need this done now", using scare tactics to force action; then once they have your money and cornered, they then tell you its a "50-50 chance" or "you really should've built up your case or portfolio, first, and then we could've handled this later", while quite happily, they'd already pocketed your cash.
Instead, Mr McGrath was friendly in offering info that helped us avoid action, which we do not need to take on, just yet. Most important to myself and my family, he showed us that he had integrity and the intelligence to manage himself! He told me how it was, before we even gave him a dime.
Then he offered a little free advice for later down the road, which he didn't have to do,
That's how you build future clientele!
Had we gone through with what we were thinking, I'm certain, it would've turned out like he warned. Thank you Mr McGrath for looking after our well being, without even knowing who we were or even seeing our faces, and for saving us time and money, for now. We would be pleased to use you when we are ready and you have, without knowing it, built up trust, for later, when we ARE ready. I would say this is a man you would want on your attorney team, since he is forward thinking, yet conservative and gracious. Apparently, Mr McGrath is one of the good ol fashioned and rare business pro's, who is honest, patient, and honorable in his doings!
