About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Get an experienced attorney to handle your case. Do not waste time with an attorney who has never handled a case like yours. I handle cases from small misdemeanors all the way up to major felonies. Everyone should know that the consequence of getting arrested for drinking and driving can be very light (a dismissal), or very heavy (up to several years in prison). Picking an attorney because he or she is low-cost or a public defender is a great way to get hammered by the court. Don't trust the rest of your life to an amateur or someone who has never taken a criminal case to trial. You can trust me because I have won trials and I have gotten criminal charges thrown out before trial. Check out reviews for former clients at: the Avvo website or visit my website.

    I was facing my second probation violation for Dui with a bench warrant out for my arrest in Fullerton and Zachary was able to get me to avoid any jail time and got me right back on track to completing my probation requirements and avoided me to going to jail. He kept me updated on my case through out the whole time he was working on it and helped me have some ease of mind. I'm forever grateful and recommend him for anyone looking for a great professional representation.

    I was in trouble with the law for the first time in my life and needed an experienced attorney and fast. I think that with Zacks support and knowledge I was able to get my life back.

    Zack is a fellow attorney in OC that I've known for years. He is tough as nails and a no non-sense guy. He is incredibly persistent in pursuing motions and never lets th DA's off the hook. I really admire that. That's what you need in a defense attorney in OC because so many attorneys here are weak and not aggressive. Not Zack. He is thorough, knowledgeable and experienced.

  • Christopher I. Nov 9, 2014
    Working with DUI Fullerton Lawyer Zachary J. McCready was a great experience. I was facing 14 felony gun charges. It was a very stressful 2 year court case that ended in me not being behind bars. Zachary is pleasant to work with even if your facing life.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. I go to seminars, workshops, and classes with other criminal defense and DUI lawyers to stay current on changes within the fields of criminal defense and DUI enforcement.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I had been a police officer for a few years when I decided to go to law school. I wanted to help people avoid the harsh consequences of a system that rewards aggressive cops and prosecutors for arrests and convictions but does not reward the most honest cops or the most honest prosecutors.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Getting charges dismissed. Getting felonies reduced to misdemeanors. Winning trials. Getting probation terminated early. Getting clients out of jail. Appealing decisions by bad judges. Getting old charges dismissed through expungement. Suing police departments.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just got two domestic violence cases dismissed in one week. And I got a speeding ticket dismissed that same week. None of the charges have been refiled.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask a lot of questions before you hire a criminal defense attorney. Find out how much experience he/she has in doing trials. Find out what his/her strategy will be if you hire him/her. Check out his/her rating on the Avvo website. Get 3 or 4 price quotes before you select an attorney.
