What People Say About Us
Every day when we waited out in the hall for the trial day to start, we had the same discussion; what is Mr. MacGregor going to do today? Honestly, he is the most entertaining man I have ever met.
The defendant’s lawyers were so organized, so thorough in presenting their case. It was easy to follow.

You just knew that he was telling us the truth.
I think it’s amazing that Mr. MacGregor seemed to know every single detail – down to the smallest point, of what the evidence was going to be.
After he cross-examined the plaintiff’s expert, one juror asked, “Why doesn’t Mr. MacGregor have his own TV show?”
You put me through hell today, son. Wrung the sweat out of me in that chair. One of the worst damned days of my life. You’re tenacious, you’re bright. A dangerous adversary.
