Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no-one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
