John F. “Mickey” McGuire
In baseball, there are “triple threat” players, who can lead their teams in hitting, running, and fielding. In the law, similarly, litigators who excel in multiple areas of specialty are in a class by themselves. John F. “Mickey” McGuire has successfully represented plaintiffs in subject areas as diverse as construction defects, landslide and subsidence claims, unfair business practices, products liability, franchise disputes, partnership dissolution, medical and legal malpractice, personal injury, insurance company fraud and bad faith claims.
Mickey is a 1968 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and also holds a Master’s Degree in mass communications.
After his discharge with the rank of Lieutenant, he attended law school at Marquette University where his uncle Al was the head basketball coach. He distinguished himself as a legal student with awards including St. Thomas More Scholar, a member of the championship National Moot Court Team and Law Review. Upon his graduation he was awarded the Order of the Barrister for his accomplishments in civil and criminal procedure and trial techniques. He completed all required courses six months ahead of schedule and graduated cum laude in 1975.
After four successful years on the defense, he joined Mike and Vince as a partner on March 17, 1979, during the firm’s first year in business.
Just as “triple threat” players are consistently honored by their peers by selection for all-star teams, Mickey has received four “Outstanding Trial Lawyer” awards for trial work on behalf of hundreds of families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by landslides, earthquakes or construction defects.
