Below are selected testimonials from Ted’s clients:

“Mr. McKinniss has taken care of the bulk of our manufacturing company’s legal needs for over twenty years. His general knowledge of contract and employment law, litigation, regulations and other day-to-day business issues enables him to help keep us on track. He knows our business and our long-term goals and is one of our corporate “family” members. Ted is a true business lawyer who can advise us on the law and then advise us on the right business decision, as well. He always keeps an eye on the budget. Because of his excellent work with the company, I also trust my personal needs to him. He is a well-known and much-appreciated leader in the Marion community, having served the City School Board for numerous terms. His civic devotion does not stop there as he has served many institutions in the community that make it better. I think he is the best lawyer in the county and so do many others.”

During that time, Ted has helped us grow from one small warehouse facility to three industrial parks that serve as home for many different companies, including a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest trucking firms in the U.S. Whether it is the creation of a foreign trade zone or the negotiation of a ten-year contract with the railroad, Ted has the skill and experience to get the job done. He has not only met our diverse legal needs, but has been a trusted advisor giving solid business advice when needed. He is truly one of those attorneys that adds value to a business day in and day out.”
