Going Above and Beyond to Defend the Accused

It is in your best interests to retain a criminal defense lawyer who has decades of experience and knows how both sides of the system operate, like Attorney Patrick McLain. As a former federal prosecutor, he knows how to counter the prosecution’s attacks with skill and precision, leaving no stone unturned.
