More Than 35 Years Of Experience Defending People’s Rights
I am criminal defense and appellate lawyer Patrick T. McNally. I have been defending the rights of those accused of crimes for more than 35 years. I have built a record of success that I am proud of and that is well-known in the legal community in Nashville and throughout our area. That record of success has helped me earn recognitions such as:
- AV Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell (the highest available rating)
- Avvo Superb rating
- Named for inclusion in Super Lawyers
Committed To Securing The Results You Need
I know the realities that people face when they are charged with a crime. The stress and anxiety can be overwhelming. With more than 35 years of experience, I can create a defense strategy that can help you secure an outcome that will help you move on with your life. My commitment to helping people extends beyond offering a strong defense against criminal charges, it also includes helping those who did not receive positive outcomes when they accepted a plea deal or at trial. I have extensive appellate experience in our state appellate courts, federal appellate courts and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Coming off a victory before the United States Supreme Court last year, in Jae Lee v. United States, I appreciate the importance of the lawyer-client relationship. During Mr. Lee’s seven-year battle, he often asked the question, “Mr. McNally are we going to win?” While I am known for grasping victories where others perceived losses, a lawyer cannot answer the question without reservations. Trust must flow between the client and the attorney as decisions are made. For me, I find meaning and purpose in life sharing that trust with people at trial, on appeal, or guiding them through some of the lowest moment of their lives.
