Biography

Paula McGill provides personal service to a variety of clients. She is comfortable representing individuals and small to medium sized businesses. Moreover, Attorney McGill is not afraid to go after large corporations to force them to take personal responsibility for damages they cause. Her confidence in pursuing these companies comes from her 20+ years of experience. Furthermore, she is skilled in efficiently and effectively representing clients of most budgets. Many clients return for additional services or recommend her to family and friends.

Her experience spans small claims matters, contract disputes, consumer matters, federal employment matters, civil rights cases, and wrongful death cases. Attorney McGill is comfortable in front of judges in bench trials or juries. Extensive trial experience benefits clients because opposing attorneys know she is not afraid to take cases to trial, if needed.

She also has the theory that rushing the case through often doesn't benefit clients. 9 times out of 10, slow and steady wins the race.

The McGill Law Firm is based in Georgia and has numerous convenient locations to meet busy clients. In addition, she is licensed in New York and Maryland, and recently retired from the bar in DC.

Legal Answers
Q. I informed the tenant I wanted to sell the property. She agreed to move out. She did indeed got a new place May 18.
A: What is your question? If you complied with lease or law by giving her notice and she refused to leave, file a dispossessory action against her to start the eviction process.
Q. Can a landlord evict you or not renew lease for calling code enforcement and calling maintenance for multiple issues?
A: You may be protected if there isn't an early termination provision in the lease or if you are not at the end of your lease. Georgia does not have a for cause statute that requires the landlord to renew the lease, except for cause.
Q. Plaintiff dismiss case. of eviction/ monies owed. Illegally evicted me then put a balance on my credit. what can i do?
A: You may have a claim for wrongful eviction (lockout), conversion (keeping your items locked inside), breach of contract (your lease had not expired), trespass, and/or negligence. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to schedule a consultation. The lawyer may be able to write a demand letter and obtain a settlement before a lawsuit is necessary.
