Welcome to the McKay Law Office - A General Practice local lawfirm offering consultations in Louisiana Law to those who need basic information. We are one of the last general practice firms in existence in Louisiana and we serve the local population in Central Louisiana--primarily the area encompassing Alexandria, Marksville and Bunkie, Rapides and Avoyelles Parishes.
Thank you for visiting the McKay Law Office online. Our primary mission is two-fold. We still offer general law office services to our clientele in Louisiana, including major civil litigation, serious injury and wrongful death, bankruptcy law (debtors' counsel) and criminal defense. Our firm has extensive experience with over 30 years in these areas. Dan McKay, lead attorney, has 35 years experience as a general practice attorney. During that time he also served--in addition to his law practice--as a Public Defender for over 14 years, 5 years as chief defender in the local (county) office, and over 11 years as an Assistant District Attorney. All of these years have included work in civil and criminal court, state and federal, and in juvenile and bankruptcy courts. His experience also includes experience in other "specialized" courts such as workers' compensation, Social Security disability claims, and work in areas of public relations (dealing with the press). Mr. McKay is one of a dying breed of lawyers who can talk to you in a wide variety of legal subjects.
A WORD TO THOSE OUTSIDE OF LOUISIANA WHO HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT LOUISIANA LAW:
The second arm of the McKay Law Office is to provide consultations in Louisiana law to out-of-state (or out of area) individuals who have questions about legal matters connected to Louisiana that are, or may be, governed by Louisiana law. We will provide this service free to out-of-state residents by telephone or email for a limited time (watch this space!) in order to determine whether or not to continue these consultations. In limited cases, we may be able to take your case, but in any event we will in most cases be able to "point you in the right direction".
