To McCann, there is nothing more stimulating than diving deep into a case to uncover the evidence she needs to bring home a win. Thorough and driven, McCann exercises constant curiosity while working her cases, exploring all avenues and possibilities in order to give her clients confidence and peace of mind. McCann is fiercely loyal. Clients can expect her to be well-prepared and well-researched when crafting novel solutions to their unique situations. She is a true advocate with a strong work ethic and firm beliefs in listening, perseverance, kindness, and passion. When she's not joyfully knee-deep in litigation, McCann is at home making creative homemade Halloween and Mardi Gras costumes for her family and practicing her favorite pastime: forwarding memes.
