Access to an Extensive Network of Experts

Expert opinions are vital in sex crime cases.

We work with these experts to develop a strong and compelling defense.

Our clients want to protect their careers, their reputations and their freedom. They know that registration as a sex offender can greatly impact their future, resulting in a terrible stigma wherever they choose to live or work.

Your future and your honor are worth fighting for. During his more than 20 years of practice, Patrick J. McLain has defended service members against all types of sexual assault charges in countless courts martial. You can trust him to bring a strong defense on your behalf.

Strong Negotiation Skills

Whenever possible, we will fight to have the charges against you reduced and to keep you off the sex offender registry. For example, we have been able to negotiate rape charges down to reprimand for adultery and sexual assault charges down to simple assault. While we may not be able to secure these results in every case, we will do all we can to obtain positive results.

If you are serious about your career and are willing to fight hard to win your case, we will be there by your side. Call our Dallas office at (214) 416-9100 to schedule an initial consultation. You may also send us an e-mail.
