Mr. McGinty has had a few distinguished careers prior to becoming an attorney. He joined the US Navy after high school. He got through one of the toughest schools in the military, and became a Helicopter Rescue Swimmer. He was stationed in Japan and traveled all over the world.
After serving his country he put himself through college. He worked full-time while going to school full-time. He graduated with honors with a bachelors degree in finance. He then joined IBM where he became a Forensic Financial Analyst. Within 3 years he was managing over 30 analysts, and helped some of IBM’s largest clients become more efficient and profitable.
However, the boyhood dream of becoming a lawyer never left him. He made his dream into a reality. He sold his house, paid off his bills, quit his job, and went to law school. His first clients came by way of a Child Advocacy Clinic in Law School where he represented children in foster care. He found that he had limitless energy and zeal when it came to fighting for his client's rights. It was then that he knew he had made the right life choice, and his final career change.
Today, he has chosen an area of the law that make people's lives better: immigration. He has literally changed the course of his client's lives; he had the privilege of representing a client from the Darfur region of Sudan who was seeking asylum from the horrible genocide taking place there.
It's not a job for Mr. McGinty - it's a calling.
