“A lawyer that is there for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Without his help I don’t know where I’d be.”
I was being held at a Special Court Martial and facing forfeiture of two-thirds basic pay per month for one year, one year confinement and a bad-conduct discharge. The charges being accused were two specifications of wrongful abuse of a controlled substance and one charge of assault. At first I was skeptical to hire a civilian lawyer because of the funds. Patrick and his law office helped me to understand that should be the least of my worries when your future is in jeopardy and you're looking for a strong fight and people who actually care. Would you rather be capable of making the money back to pay off your debts or never making enough to be successful enough to support a/your family because you were found guilty of charges be forced against you. On short notice and just weeks before being held at a Special Court Martial in the United States Air Force I contacted Patrick and his team. They jumped on board with lighting speed and helped to assure I was in good hands. My court martial was pushed back and it gave me space to breathe a little and know I was going to be taken care of. Patrick McLain's office contacted me every week to check on me and make sure I was in the loop and taken care of full circle. Leading up to my court martial and being relieved of duty for 9 months was one of the most stressful and darkest stages of my life. Going through all that Patrick and his team made sure I was given the treatment I needed to keep a steady head through the process. Nothing was sugar coated with Patrick though so if you can't take a little father son/daughter stern talk then you might as well find someone else. The stern talks to me were a huge plus! It helps you realize he isn't messing around and if he can give you a little butt ripping then what'd you think he can do in that court room! Heading into my Special Court- Martial Patrick and his law office were working hand and hand with my Area Defense Counsel out of Travis AFB. They spent late nights reviewing every piece of my case and making sure there was nothing left untouched. In the court room it showed. Patrick didn't leave anything unquestioned. Patrick was active and always on his feet to object, he never gave up. It wasn't just about the court room though. Even after a long day of fighting my case he took the time to get to know me on a personal level and understand me as a person with dinner. Patrick is a lawyer that is there for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Without his help I don't know where I'd be. I can't thank Patrick and his team enough for what they did for me and the time they put in to make sure I was in good hands. If I could put more than 5 stars I would!
