Don’t Just Take Our Word

Listen to some of the praise we received from our valued clients

  • Patrick is the tough love type of attorney. He will not hold your hand and do everything for you. What he will do is assign you the tasks that need to be completed in order to obtain a successful ruling in your favor. If you are serious about winning, he is the attorney for you.Glenn D.
  • Patrick did an outstanding job with my formal Physical Evaluations Board appeal for the Air Force. He kept me on task with what was needed and is a great taskmaster. He was professional and extremely ethical, which is a great thing when it comes to a lawyer. He was successfully able to argue for a full retirement for me. I can’t say enough about what an outstanding lawyer Patrick McLain is. Choose him and you can’t go wrong.Stephen S.
  • I have found my lawyer Patrick McLain, to be honest, right to the point, consistently giving me realistic outcomes through the whole process of my case. He’s definitely no nonsense, cut to the chase. As a client…I’ve never been left hanging; he makes sure all my correspondence is returned. He’s got amazing strength and integrity with the combination of experience, insight, and knowledge of military law. He stands behind his words and expects the same in return. I say my blessings every day for him taking my case. With him as my attorney, I’ve achieved best possible outcomes.Gina F.
  • Because of my foreign birth, my Air Force career seemed unjustly doomed. Mr. McLain could not possibly have been more understanding, knowledgeable and professional. He took the facts of my case, and because he knew exactly how to express exactly what needed to be expressed, my case didn’t even go to DOHA. Mr. McLain really is, based on my own personal experience, a true professional, an ace at his job (aside from apparently honest and ethical human being). There wasn’t a question or concern that I had, during an entire year, that wasn’t competently addressed, at times long past normal business hours. I highly, highly recommend Mr. McLain and the professionals he chooses for his team.K.N., San Antonio
