Ian McNeill


“I make a point of becoming an expert in my clients’ businesses. I dive into the subject matter and take the fight to the other side to get the best results for my client. I feel good about that.”
— Ian McNeill

Summary

Ian McNeill represents clients in all types of civil litigation matters, including contract disputes, construction defects, business disputes, fraud cases, and property cases. Ian also represents clients in OSHA cases as well as other administrative cases. Ian is detail-oriented, strategic, and tenacious and is willing to simply outwork the other side. He leaves no stone unturned and pursues every avenue on behalf of his clients.

Ian began his legal career in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, where he tried a wide range of misdemeanor and felony cases. As a result of his time as a prosecutor, he is fearless walking into a courtroom. After his tenure as a prosecutor, Ian turned to private practice, where he represented clients both in the prosecution and defense of a broad spectrum of cases. Ian utilizes his prosecutorial and civil litigation experience to evaluate each case with a unique perspective and advise his clients accordingly.

Although a native Houstonian, Ian is Scottish at heart and enjoys playing the bagpipes. At home, he is constantly in search of wall space because of his other hobby, outdoor photography. Last, but certainly not least, Ian and his wife have a son and a daughter who are just the right combination of love and mischief.

For the countless hours of preparation, mediations, planning, scanning, etc.; I cannot say thank you enough. Yesterday I saw excellence, when you asked the right questions at the right time and picked battles wisely. Now I get a chance to hit the reset button on my life and I couldn't be more elated!

Thanks to everyone, it's gratefully appreciated."

  • "Thank you very much for your help, advise, and guidance...given the situation. You and your firm have been very helpful since day one. All my questions were answered. Not having gone through this, and not knowing what to expect, your help was given to me in ways I could understand clearly and accurately. I am very appreciative about that. My family and I are very pleased with the outcome. If I happen to come across anyone who needs someone to represent them in these rough family situations, I will definitely recommend you and your firm and send them your way."

    - Brittany M.
  • "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your firm for your work on my recent divorce. Your professionalism and thorough handling of my case was so appreciated and very refreshing. You did your homework better than I had and truly opened my eyes to things I would have missed without your attention to detail. We prepared for the worst, hoped for the best and quite frankly, ended up as close to the best as could have been achieved. Beyond the great job you did though and perhaps the most important aspect of my want to say thank you is how I feel now and how I felt in your office. This brutal thing of divorce is tough and quite frankly, something I never want to go through again but y'all softened the blow for me through your care, concern, friendship and support. I've dealt with your firm forever it seems and the personal touch and caring way of it continues in you, Trey and all who I dealt with. Again, thank you so very much for your work on my case but more than that, for caring about me."

    - James M.
  • "Thank you very much for helping my client. I found your firm online and spoke over the phone for the first time and find out immediately it was the right firm for my client. My client was very happy with all your staff. We appreciate your hard work and understanding since for immigrants it’s not easy to understand the legal system, especially with the language barrier. YOU ARE AWESOME ATTORNEYS! THANK YOU!"
