I had the experience with another Attorney that not only did not have any results in my case, but I received Payment requests after Payment requests, for work that I actually did myself. As soon as I switched to McCarthy & Akers I saw Results and Responses in a very timely matter. Everything was handled professional and at a fraction of the previous Rate. I can only highly recommend McCarthy & Akers for any legal problems you have. And his Team is just as great as Mr. McCarthy himself. Should I ever need another Attorney he is certainly the one I will call on.
