Mr Mahaney brings over 39 years of experience to the table when representing his clients. He is sensitive to the needs of all his clients, recognizing that a trial is to be avoided where reasonable negotiations and alternative dispute forums are available, yet prepared and confident in his ability to provide the skill needed to succeed at trial in the event these attempts fail.

The Mahaney Law office was established in 1940 by their late father John Walter Mahaney, whose reputation for fearlessly defending his clients set the foundation on which his sons would carry on the practice.
