About this pro
How does your service stand out?
While many attorneys operate as a "mill," where each client receives limited personal attention (and, accordingly, poor drafting), we provide quality and customization. Each case is unique, and should be treated as such. The case is often won on the pleadings that have been prepared and filed, and we treat every document--and every client--with the deserved attention.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I love the personal interaction I have with my clients. I recognize that any family law or divorce action could become the most difficult experience my client will have in his/her life, and my role as an attorney is to protect my client to ensure this difficult experience does not haunt him/her for years to come. In these trying times, I like knowing my client has confidence in me to represent them effectively.
First I agree with everything that everybody else wrote about Mckail....She is thoughtful, thorough and extremely informative. What truly amazed me about Mckail is her level of professionalism and connection to humanistic side. Divorce of any kind can be extremely painful and devastating and Mckail walked me through with reason and rights at my time of complete despair. She informed me of my best case options and what I was entitled to. There were times when I needed her to explain the same issue several times and she never seemed bothered or annoyed.
Previous to finding Mckail I used a "so called "prominent attorney at a big firm downtown only to experience lack of response and carelessness. I paid $7500 retainer fee and ended up doing most of the work on my own for a not so useful postnup.
I took a huge risk and called Mckail based on her reviews and just as the reviews described she was amazing!
Mckail is the first lawyer who I thought deserved more than what she charged. Quality of her work is worth every penny you pay her and so much more! The work that Mckail did for me was superb and I paid probably 1/4 of what I would have paid at big downtown firms.
Thank you Mckail for changing my life....and for all of your help. Words cannot express I thankful I am to have met you. This world is better place because of kind, thoughtful and intelligent lawyers like you!

I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have Mckail as my attorney in my legal separation case. Mckail is very knowledgeable and on top of her game. She kept in constant contact with me and up to date with all the court papers and filing. She always gave me expert advise. Timing is everything. She explained everything in detail. Which I am so thankful for at a time like this. She can be as tough as needed to make sure a situation is handled correctly. She was definitely looking out for my future. She is a Excellent attorney who I owe many thanks for making a very overwhelming and emotional situation go seamlessly perfect in no time. She has been highly recommended.
Thank you so much Mckail you are Excellent

I can not say anything but good things about Mckail. She was so amazing through the entire process of my divorce. Took care of all my needs and was very detailed oriented. Great personality and easy going but when it comes to dealing with other lawyers she doesn't play around. Thanks Mckail for being awesome!

I hired Mckail for my divorce that included many issues and child custody issues with a party that was not willing to agree on many things. I can not say anything but good things about Mckail. She was so amazing through the entire process of my divorce. Took care of all my needs and was very detailed oriented. Great personality and easy going but when it comes to dealing with other lawyers she doesnt play around. Thanks Mckail for being awesome!

Thank you, Marc. I truly appreciate your kind review.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I primarily practice in divorce and child custody actions. When possible, I prefer to start my client's action (rather than mitigating the damage the "cheapest" attorneys will cause) with his/her Complaint for Divorce. I do far too many petitions to modify (again, mitigating damage), and have taken on a few grandparent's visitation action cases. I do not believe in representing a client for "policy" reasons (father's rights, mother's rights, grandparent's rights, etc.), and each case is handled on an individual basis.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
When possible, meet with your potential attorney in person. Describe your case, and ask your attorney questions. While attorneys do not survive by giving "free advice," you should know if your attorney knows her profession by asking them questions about your case and finding out if they have encountered similar situations. I have seen too many attorneys fail their clients because they did not have the knowledge or understanding necessary to represent their clients (when they are opposing attorneys, it's great for my client).
