WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
I had a friend recommend Floyd … the moment he took my case the attorney on the other end changed their tune and aggressive behavior toward me … All in all I retained Floyd for about 2 years and through several court appearances which were very stressful we came out on top. I now call Floyd a friend."
Floyd McKissick helped me and my family through a difficult time in our lives. Putting our case in his hands alleviated stress, anxiety, doubt, and fear, especially because of his sincerity, gentleness, and care. Personable and elegant, he makes you feel as though you are his only client and he listens, even when you think he isn't.”
After carefully examining the facts of the case, he assured me that he would take care of it as if she were his own daughter and then proceeded to produce the best possible outcome, a dismissal. I stand by attorney Floyd B. McKissick Jr. as the best ever!"
We have always found Floyd to be courteous, professional and a brilliant mind which is why we regard him as expert in the vast field of law. If my family and I were to rate Floyd on a scale of 1-10 for the services he has provided us over the years, without hesitation he would receive a 10!"
