What Our Clients and Peers Have To Say About Their Experience with Maginnis Law

The Maginnis Law Firm represented my company in a seven figure business dispute with a North Carolina business. I was the plaintiff. The defendant hired the big name law firm in town.

As a business owner and entrepreneur I have worked with many attorneys over the years. I can say without equivocation that Ed Maginnis and Shawn Howard are the two best lawyers I have worked with in my career. Ed and Shawn were extremely efficient, and very effective. They were easy to work with, and kept me apprised at all times of developments in my case.

Most importantly, the Maginnis Law Firm negotiated a very favorable settlement to my case. This was no accident. It was the result of thorough preparation by Ed and Shawn. And, to be quite blunt, they were just better lawyers than the defendant’s counsel.

If you have any sort of legal issue in North Carolina, I would strongly recommend that you contact the Maginnis Law Firm.

I can’t thank Shawn Howard and Ed Maginnis enough for their time, patience and expertise that they put into my sons wrongful death case. Shawn was so helpful in explaining each step of the process and was very thorough. I felt relieved to have such a competent, professional, and trustworthy team helping me every step of the way..They never gave up and I will be eternally grateful. I would strongly recommend this team.

Ed Maginnis and Shawn Howard are very effective lawyers, well-respected in the legal community. Ed has a big law background, and is capable of handling the most complicated cases. I watched Ed represent a small business owner and secure a six figure verdict involving breach of contract. Shawn is a tenacious litigator who has been able to secure excellent outcomes for clients both through litigation and settlement. I routinely refer clients to Maginnis Law and have heard nothing but good things from people who have hired Maginnis Law.

Ed Maginnis represented us in a lawsuit brought against us. He literally saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars by succeeding in having the lawsuit dismissed. Having never been through anything like this before, Ed eased our fears, answered all our questions and was available whenever we needed him. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, attentive, professional attorney, look no further than Maginnis Law.

Ed Maginnis and his team are experienced, thorough, and aggressive. Working for a criminal defense firm, I send all of my civil, business and personal injury clients to them when a referral is needed. I always know our clients will be in good hands with them.

Maginnis Law has great knowledge and strategy with wage and hour cases. Their tenacity is bar none. A great firm to have in your corner.

Shawn Howard is an excellent lawyer. He took a very sensitive case involving my son and won victoriously. His patience and dedication to the case made the settlement much larger than originally expected. He always returns calls and is very helpful. I would absolutely recommend him without a doubt.

Amanda, Raleigh, NC


I am forever grateful to Mr. Maginnis and Mr. Gwaltney for their help. They were very helpful in explaining the process I would have to go through and all the possibilities that I could have potentially faced. They were there every step of the way and provided great knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend this team as everyone I interacted with was patient, understanding, and knowledgeable.

Lauren, Raleigh, NC


While dealings with legal matters are many times not pleasant as was this one, my experience with Maginnis Law was very good. Shawn Howard and Ed Maginnis did their best to represent my son’s estate in a legal system which clearly protects the guilty and further victimizes the victims. They listened when other lawyers made up their minds before ever hearing or understanding the facts. I would highly recommend them.

Bruce, Wake Forest, NC


In early 2012 I was unjustly sued for a very large amount of money. I had never been sued before and didn’t know where to turn. I called several attorneys out of the yellow pages, one of which told me I should call Ed Maginnis for a civil case like mine. I left Ed Maginnis a message and less than 2 hours later had a return call from him. He patiently listened to my story over the phone and asked me to email him a copy of the paperwork I was served so he could take a look – no obligation at this point. As soon as I did, he called me back to tell me that he was willing to take my case. He made no promises but he told me that we had a good chance of getting the case dismissed so that it may never have to go to court. I felt very good about him and trusted his advice. He gave me my options along with the possible outcomes – best case and worst case scenario – and guided me through the whole process. It took about 7 months and there were some bumps in the road (the plaintiff changed his complaint to increase the chances of the case going to court) but Ed Maginnis diligently worked in my best interest and ended up getting the case dismissed. Needless to say I am very happy with the outcome and would recommend Atty. Ed Maginnis to any of my friends and family. If you need the best attorney in your corner, someone you can trust 100%, you need to call Ed Maginnis.

Ed has been our company lawyer for the past 3 years. He has also been my personal lawyer during that time frame. He has provided contract review, collections, business litigation (both as plaintiff and defendant) and dispute negotiation. Ed won a critical jury trial for us regarding the violation of a non-compete. Having Ed on-board to address business and legal issues can be a real weapon for any business. Ed specializes in working with small businesses – high quality service at a reasonable price

I attained Shawn Howard to represent me in a personal injury case. He was referred to me from a very reputable law firm. Mr. Howard is a very personable attorney. He made me feel at ease and explained everything that was going to happen from the initial meeting, and throughout the process. I spoke with three different attorneys, and I picked Mr. Howard because he was down to earth and very easy to talk with. He always returned my phone calls within the same day, and kept in touch with me weekly. E-mails were returned during the same day also. He is an excellent attorney, who looks out for his clients best interest. I would recommend Shawn to anyone. I enjoyed working with him and Ed. I have worked with many lawyers before, and none of them cared about me and my well-being as much as Mr. Howard. I thank Shawn for all he did for me. You are the best. God Bless.

Laurel, Raleigh, NC


As a small business owner you have to deal with a number challenges that require a strong attorney to be on your side. Ed Maginnis has been our counsel for almost two years. He has skillfully and efficiently navigated our company on a number of issues. I highly recommend Maginnis Law.

Ryan, Raleigh, NC


I highly recommend Shawn Howard at Maginnis Law Firm. Mr. Howard represented me after I had been in a car accident in VA. While working throughout the entire process Shawn was very thorough, knowledgeable, helpful in answering all my questions, great with giving advice, and very quick in response. We managed to settle outside of court and I was extremely happy with this outcome! Mr. Howard certainly has his clients best interest at heart!

Brittany, Southern Shores, NC


We are a small staffing company that had difficulty collecting from a general contractor for over two years. We hired Maginnis Law and they aggressively litigated our case. Attorney Shawn Howard even filed an appeal when it was necessary. The defendant eventually offered to settle the case by paying 100% of what was due. I would recommend the firm to any North Carolina business owner.

Carol, Raeford, NC


I was in a car accident last summer and was immediately inundated with calls/letters from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Being that I had never been in an accident, I reached out to Maginnis Law for guidance. Shawn Howard was professional and wonderful to work with. He negotiated and settled my case in a timely manner. It was such a relief to have such a hard working firm I could count on. I highly recommend Maginnis Law.

Michelle, Morrisville, NC


I HIGHLY recommend Maginnis Law Firm!! They represented me in 2011 in a case against a former employer. I felt comfortable throughout the entire experience as they were very thorough explaining options, answering all my questions, and very responsive. They did everything they said they would do. Both Ed Maginnis and Shawn Howard are VERY knowledgeable about business law, strategic in their thinking, and pragmatic about achieving the best bottomline results for the client as opposed to just accruing attorney fees for themselves. You can tell that they care and have their client’s best interests at heart.

John, Raleigh, NC 


Having never gone through any kind of legal procedure, Mr. Howard made this process as smooth as it could have been. After having months of issues with an employment dispute, Mr. Howard was able to get this resolved within a week. It was difficult for me to even get a response from my employer regarding my wage and hours. Thanks to Mr. Howard’s quick action, I’m finally able to have this matter resolved. Thanks again to Maginnis Law and Mr. Howard.

Steven, Greensboro, NC


I am so pleased with the services I received from Karl S. Gwaltney, an attorney at Maginnis Law Firm. Before I contacted Mr. Gwaltney I was unsure of my legal rights to an issue I was confronted with. After meeting with Mr. Gwaltney, his in-depth knowledge and expertise allowed him to quickly identify specific State Law Violations and the merits of my complaints regarding a Residential Rental Contract Dispute. My case was handled so thoroughly that I received a large amount of money AND it was resolved in a short amount of time. During the entire process of my case Mr. Gwaltney was supportive, kept me informed, and helped me understand what I needed to do. Without Mr. Gwaltney I had no chance to fair and just results. I absolutely recommend to my family, friends, co-workers and anyone I come in contact with that needs Mr. Gwaltney’s services, that they contact him without delay! Don’t let the mild-mannered exterior fool you. This is a top notch attorney that I now entrust and who has proven to put my best interest first. Thank you Maginnis Law Firm!

Sandy, Raleigh, NC


I had such a wonderful experience with Maginnis after being hit by a drunk driver. My lawyer was straight forward and informative throughout the process and I felt like I was able to make the best decisions for my case. I will continue to recommend Maginnis law firm to anyone I know with a need for a personal injury lawyer.
