"I recently had a citation from the city that I felt was unjust. After researching lawyers and asking around for references I decided to go with Mr. McBride. I couldn't be happier with my decision. Not only did he get it resolved to where the citation was removed, he also got it taken care of in less than three weeks. He was professional throughout the process and kept me informed of the ongoing status. I will without a doubt be recommending him to my friends and colleagues." - Jim, Springfield
