Zack McCready is incredibly good at getting criminal cases dismissed before trial. My brother hired a lawyer for his case who was terible. Took $6000 for trial and then lost it! When I got in trouble for stealing a credit card (I didn't do it but that's what I got arrested for), zack got the case DISMISSED and I didn't even have to pay for a trial. I didn't plead guilty to anything. The case just went away. THANKS, ZACK! I owe you one, bro!

My case was passed over to Zach McCready from John Murray both whom work with the SHOUSE Law Group. I was not sure about the change of lawyers, but I was really surprised on how much Zach knew about my case and how he explained to me that we had a big chance on winning the case. John had explained the plan to me, but I couldn't believe how Zach executed the plan to a "T". All I have to say is "KUDOS" to SHOUSE Law Group who have players like Zach and John who communicate well with each other an their clients to make the process a lot easier. Thanks again ZACH!!!

During the initial interview, he was very informative and straight forward. He was accommodating by traveling to meet us locally.
He provided piece of mind by taking care of legalities wether big or small.
Most recently, during an unexpected event, Zach was quick to respond to texts, e-mails and calls. He did background research and was reassuring through his attention. During this stressful time, he provided us with security knowing that all bases were covered and addressed. We are grateful for his understanding and professionalism.

Zach Mccready is one of the best criminal defense lawyers I know. He is an outstanding trial lawyer and is well respected by the Judges and prosecutors in the Los Angeles and Orange County courts. In addition, Zach demonstrates an immense compassion and respect towards his clients which many other lawyers do not. His legal intellect and high moral character make him the best criminal attorney in town!
