Patrick M. McVary's Summary

McVary Law Group, PA is a North-suburban Minneapolis law firm, specializing in civil litigation and helping individuals and businesses solve problems by delivering legal solutions at competitive rates.

Our firm specializes in resolving civil disputes through negotiation and, whenever necessary, litigation in the courts. Our clients are those who find themselves involved in contract disputes, landlord/tenant disagreements, mechanic's lien claims and construction project disputes. We also help business owners review their use of written contracts with an eye toward reducing exposure to potential lawsuits, and counsel individuals on probate and family law matters, chapters 7 & 13 bankruptcy, and creating simple wills and trusts.

Our philosophy is to deliver practical advice to solve legal problems according to the client's wishes--not ours. Peace of mind for our clients is more important than billable hours for the firm.
