Peter R. McGrath, P.A., enjoys a very personal relationship with - and a firm commitment to - our clients. Our clients are very important.
We realize that many individuals who need legal representation work during the day. Therefore, our attorneys and staff will meet with clients in the evening and on weekends as necessary.
Presently, our firm has two attorneys with a combined 50 years of legal experience. We have a support staff of three experienced paralegals and legal assistants. Our collection/foreclosure department is staffed by two full-time specialists who devote their expertise daily to this important aspect of community association representation. Our paralegals and legal assistants are highly trained to meet the needs of our clients.
