Looking for the best, look no further !!

I was involved in a car accident last year. I was the driver in a late night hit and run that t-boned my brand new car. I was scared and not sure what to do. I knew Kyle from a previous legal matter we discussed and called to see if he handles these types of claims and if so, would he represent me. After calling and speaking to Kyle, he quickly made me feel at ease and explained the process to me and exactly step by step what to do moving forward. Everything was taken care of for me by Kyle and his team. I am so happy to have found them. He instructed me what to do each step of the way and handled everything from dealing with insurance company to doctors to medical records and even settling and taking care of all the outstanding bills. I could not have had a better outcome even if the late great Johnnie Cochran represented me. If it doesn’t fit “you must acquit.”……… In need of a great attorney, looking to hire ?? “You must call Kyle” !!!

Home sale in Bradenton

T.R. Smith handled the sale of our single family home in Bradenton. He was incredibly helpful and answered all of our questions that came up as we sold our house by-owner. He was excellent with communication by phone and email and never left a question unanswered; he made sure we understood everything before we entered our contract. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a knowledgeable attorney!

Could not have found a better Lawyer

Dear Kyle: I’m writing this letter to formally thank you for representing me…with your straightforward tact and sympathetic understanding you were able to ease my “scares” and concerns. I thank you for being a “friend” through it all. You displayed humor, honesty, dignity humility and compassion during this ordeal…once again my most sincere.

Thomas R. Smith V

All I can say is after dealing with the death of my Brother, Thomas not only handled everything with ease, and professionalism, he had compassion and understanding. He always had patience with me and responded quickly to all my request. I had no worries because I knew everything was being handled . Thomas helped in so many ways. My case had some unexpected issues. Some of the issues required Thomas to dig a little deeper. He did it with ease. He helped me fine a Real Estate broker who ended up being a wonderful person who sold my Brothers house in 24 hours from the time it was put on the market. Thomas handled all the closing and all the legalities that went with it. Again with ease. I cant’s rave enough about Mackey Law group, and Thomas R Smith V. I remember the first time I went to Mackey Law, I was down in Florida dealing with my Brothers death, and arrangements. I got lost looking for them. I arrived 1 hour late for my appointment, and they were all ready to go to lunch. They saw my frustration when I finally arrived. They were gracious, and told me to sit down, relax and they would talk with me. That meant so much to me. For a bad situation, Thomas was calm, considerate, and really understood what I was going through. Even now a year later. something came up that had to be resolved, and Thomas again came through for me. I would recommend him for sure. I’m from Ohio, and I told him in my last e-mail to him that I wished he was up by me. I can go on and on, but I think by now you should get the point. Thomas unlike some attorneys was upfront, professional, compassionate, and understanding. He handled everything for me. I could have never done this on my own. I’m glad I’ve had this opportunity to express my feelings towards this man who deserves a 5 star rating.

A Great law firm

We are a local family owned HVAC service company who has been with T.R Smith and the Mackey law group for a couple of years. We went through a handful of attorney’s before finding these guys. T.R has handled most of our cases, all with a favorable outcome for us. Unlike most lawyer’s, I can get him on the phone and a question or concern addressed in a couple of minutes. I would not hesitate to recommend T.R Smith or the Mackey law group to friends or family.

Direct, experienced, compassionate

Pete is a highly experienced attorney who has a full understanding of the law and compassionately relates to his clients during one of the toughest times of your life – a divorce.

I was educated and prepared throughout the journey as a result of his direct counsel and that of his staff. A family owned business with his wife, Catherine (also an attorney), in many ways I felt a part of the family.

I was in a situation where, as the bread winner, I had the most to lose once my unemployed husband of 20 years filed for divorce and did everything he could to make the experience as miserable as possible. I ended with a more favorable result than is typical considering the very unfortunate Florida laws and dealing with unreasonable opposing counsel.

Pete’s experience as a very seasoned attorney and litigator was critical to the result of my case. I would recommend him as a highly competent divorce lawyer who has seen just about any twist or turn you would experience.

Kyle is fantastic!

Kyle is a wonderful attorney. We have met many unhelpful attorneys and we were looking for an attorney who got our issues and was willing to go to bat for us in a system that is often unfair and frustrating. He did just that. We are very, very happy with his service.

Divorce Attorney

I originally contacted Kyle and a few other attorneys about my upcoming divorce. I was very impressed with the recommendations and realistic outlook put forth to me. I eventually hired Kyle and when divorce was final I ended up with the exact expectations I was informed of from the start. Kyle gave advice throughout the process and always answered back in a timely manner. I highly recommend him as an attorney

Exceeded my expectations!

I am very fortunate to of had kyle represent me in my time of need, its so easy to get lost in the mumble jumble of lawyer talk, but kyle made sure to explain things in an understanding manner, and went above and beyond what his job entailed. If you need someone who will see that your wants and concerns are met, not to mention a genuinely good person, trust when i say Kyle Stalnaker is you the lawyer you want to have in your corner!

The best attorney ever… he really cares

I went to see Mr. Stalnaker to help me with custody issues with a horrible ex. I was very traumatized with my experience with my divorce attorney and I really needed Mr. Stalnaker to understand the situation that my children and I were in. It is unbelievable to me how much I trust this attorney. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, GETS IT, and he cares. He is also honest in telling me what can and cannot be accomplished, given the limitations set by the legal system. He has done as much as possible within the constraints of the legal system to help us and he is top notch. I recommend this attorney fully. I hesitated to write this review because I fear that recommending him may bring so much clientele to him who will be as satisfied with is services as I am, that he will be ultra busy, but frankly, he deserves the best of recommendations.

Thomas R. Smith, ESQ

Working for the past two years with T.R. on my case had its ups and downs, but T.R held fast and always assured me the confidence I needed to eventually win the case. He always picked up the phone when I called or returned my call if he was busy. There were times when my opinion of the court system was tested. That is when T.R. became my therapist. Thomas showed that in today’s world a lawyer can be compassionate, as well as, resourceful. Thank You Thomas.
