About Us

Our Attorneys

Your NC Family Law Attorneys

At McNeil Law Firm, our family law attorneys don’t back down. We walk with you every step of the way, and we  aim to do it in a way that won’t blow your budget. Here’s how we do that:

  • YOUR TEAM. When you work with us, you have an entire legal team working on your case. That team is made up of lawyers AND non-lawyer staff, such as paralegals. Our team members are knowledgeable yet down-to-earth, friendly, and compassionate.
  • KEEPING COSTS DOWN. We use our knowledgeable non-lawyer staff as much as we can for non-lawyer tasks. Why? Because it helps keep the costs down for you while still making sure you get responsive, quality legal services.
  • RESPONSIVE. Family law matters are stressful and hard enough, but with McNeil Law Firm, you don’t have to go through it alone. When you need us, we’re there for you. We make sure you feel protected and supported, and we keep costs down as much as we can so you can focus on yourself and your loved ones.
