About McCray Law Office

At the McCray Law Office, our main focus is the representation of individuals, families and businesses in a variety of legal matters. We strive to earn our client’s trust by providing accessible, reliable and result-oriented legal representation with accountability and open communication.

We proudly serve individuals, families and businesses in legal matters and capacities across a broad spectrum of civil law. The primary areas of our practice include corporate, business, banking, civil litigation, contracts, wills, estates, probate, oil & gas, construction, foreclosures, collections, creditor’s claims in bankruptcy and real estate matters.

“Client communication and personal attention are the primary principles of my legal practice and representation. I conduct my practice to serve clients in the manner I believe best benefits the client by having direct, clear, open and responsive lines of communication. I am accountable only to my clients and myself and not to a firm of multiple lawyers or insurance companies. Usually, the number one complaint in the legal profession and against lawyers involves the lack or failure of client communication in one form or another. Clients are best served if they are able to speak directly with their lawyer at their choosing, whether the news is good or bad, and even if there is no news at all.” …. Forrest McCray.
