"I've known Patrick McNally as an excellent criminal defense lawyer for many years. In recent years he has focused more and more on criminal appeals and has been very successful in this field. When I was recently closing my criminal appellate practice after 18 years, I turned to Pat to take over my remaining cases. I did so because of my confidence in his work and his care for his clients. I knew with Pat my clients would be in great hands."Jay Martin, Assistant District Attorney, 20th Judicial District, Nashville, Tennessee
Patrick McNally saved my life and made me a better person . The mistakes I made are finally behind me and I can move on with my life. Mr. McNally worked hard to take care of my situation. On behalf of myself and my family, I thank him with all my heart. Mr. McNally became my lawyer, and also my friend.
