Family Law
Erin O-Toole-McNally worked efficiently and effectively in my case. She was available to answer any questions and concerns that I had regarding my case. Mrs. O-Toole-McNally would also return my phone calls regarding my case within 12 hours or less. When researching local Attorney's you will find that they generally fo not have one initial flat fee, and that they will tack on additional fees. Erin was straight forward and there were never additional fees. Erin O-Toole-McNally's knowledge of Family Law is superior and she helped me win my case. I would highly recommend Erin O-Tooles-McNally's services!

child custody
I was contacted by Erin when I was personally searching for an attorney. She was a blessing. Erin put everything into perspective for me clearly and helped me to better understand what to expect during our trial. She is currently my attorney and I would recommend her to anyone at anytime and have actually done so several times. This has been very rough on myself and my family and Erin has been there at a moments notice to handle every and all situations that have arisen. I am grateful to have had her to represent us.

Amazing Attorney
I hired Erin in a family law case and she has been a blessing from the get-together. Her knowledge of the law is immense and I have never felt as if she has not done all she could to protect myself and my family. I trust her implicitly and appreciate that there are lawyers out there like her. My case is one that has lasted a few years and she has always been organized with the volumes of files and very familiar with what is happening in my case.

My husband and myself needed a lawyer to help us get guardianship of our 2 grandchildren. Erin McNally helped us in getting guardianship. She was wonderful and friendly while at the same time, knowlegeable and got the job done. We felt comfortable and confident as we trusted that she would take care of this. We would definitely use Erin McNally for any future legal matter and also highly recommend her.

Thank you for all your help!
After watching Mrs. McNally in action and realizing our current attorney was not doing the job we needed, I hired Mrs. McNally. It was the absolute best choice I could have made. She was able to turn things around for us. She listened to what we had to say because she cares. She guided us and explained things in good detail. She is very honest, professional, and caring. She will stand up for you. I will definitely hire her again if such an occasion were to arise.

We were fortunate to have been referred to Erin O'Toole Mc Nally at a very stressful and confusing time. Not knowing anything about the judicial system, She guided us with patience and understanding. Most of all, she listened to us. She is very honest, professional and has a very caring heart
