Welcome to McKay Law

McKay Law is a boutique full-service law firm focusing on civil litigation. We are located just north of Old Town Scottsdale on Scottsdale Road.

Our Philosophy

The cornerstone of our philosophy is personal attention to clients' needs and goals while ensuring that clients receive full value for the legal expenses they incur, along with the personal attention that they deserve. Mike McKay is a veteran of large law firms as well as a highly experienced civil litigation lawyer. He brings the high-quality practice of big law firms into the more congenial, value -based, and client focused atmosphere of a boutique law firm.

We can answer all of your legal questions and discuss the various ways your situation can be addressed. Our firm has helped individuals, families, and businesses successfully resolve many different types of law-related issues and can be depended on for knowledgeable counsel and dedicated representation. Retaining the services of a qualified legal professional can make a significant difference in the outcome of a legal matter. We firmly believe there is a solution to every problem and will utilize our extensive training and experience to assist you in any way that we can.

Our Approach

The key to our approach is to find, as quickly and inexpensively as possible, the critical legal, business, and human determinants of a successful outcome and from them to craft a winning strategy. In some cases, full-bore litigation is the only sensible approach. Though we have successfully litigated many cases to judgment, we have found that a “frontloaded” approach often achieves better results, while saving time and money for the client. In such cases, we do intense early legal and factual analysis, study the opposition, learn our client's personal and business goals, and then craft a plan to get a winning result on the fastest possible timetable. Sometimes that requires litigation, but it could also mean an early mediation, use of the media, back-channel approaches to key decision-makers—whatever tool fits. Whether the optimal strategy involves litigation to judgment or an innovative multi-party mediation, McKay Law brings the same preparation, creativity, and intensity to the process.

Improving Lives

The best solution for your case may not be the most obvious one. McKay Law succeeds through a unique combination of strategy, innovation, legal acumen, and hard work. We are never outworked. Our clients count on us to work through legal conflicts using key strategies and to swiftly achieve conflict resolution. We work hard to pursue and protect our clients' interests, improving lives along the way.


In today's innovation-fueled economy, most large law firms are simply not structured to efficiently achieve your litigation objectives. Their reliance on inexperienced junior lawyers, outdated billing practices, and overstaffed legal teams often results in bloated bills and an unfocused legal strategy. At McKay Law, our clients appreciate the high quality services they receive at substantially lower hourly rates than those of our larger, national law firm competitors. As a nimble friendly boutique firm, we can also offer cost-effective, alternative billing arrangements to help you manage litigation expenses.

The McKay Law Difference

When you place your case in the hands of McKay Law, you are placing your case in the hands of professionals who are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you. We have extensive experience in legal matters involving business law, family law, divorce, financial services, insurance, investments, and class actions. This unique skill set allows us to provide global service to our clients, resolving multiple legal issues that are often intertwined.

We believe that every client has unique interests and needs that must be reflected in the advice we provide, the recommendations we make, and the work we perform.

We believe that our clients are entitled to the highest quality work product and that there is no substitute for attention to detail, innovative legal thinking, articulate writing, and the ability to present convincing arguments in open court.

About Michael McKay

I started McKay Law to provide client focused and result driven legal services. After practicing law for many years at a large law firm, I learned that not every case requires an army of lawyers. Many cases are more effectively handled by a single experienced lawyer overseeing every aspect of the work.
