Welcome

We are the alternative to larger, more cumbersome law firms. Your case is unique, so why should it be treated the same as everyone else's lawsuit? Our lawyers recognize that most legal actions and other business disputes are resolved or significantly narrowed before trial. We work closely with our Clients to tailor and execute plans to achieve the best possible result at the lowest possible expense to the Client. Gratuitous billing, ornamental libraries, and lack of direction do little to achieve the Client's needs for exceptional legal counsel and litigation advocacy.

Our Clients choose McKenna & McCausland, P.A. because we promptly identify pertinent legal issues, timely counsel with our Clients, and zealously advocate within a cost-effective litigation plan. When our Clients' legal disputes cannot be resolved without the actual need for trial, our lawyers are experienced in the preparation of legal argument and evidence necessary to successfully present the case to judge and jury.

We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to the Firm's lawyers, outline for you our practice areas, and highlight a few of the Clients that McKenna & McCausland, P.A. is privileged to serve. Of course, the hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide on a lawyer, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
