During this time, Mr. McCahill was named to the defense steering committee for installers in the Multi District Litigation Panel on Chinese Drywall which worked in conjunction for both class actions and mass tort claims in an international law context under the Hague Convention.  However, this was not Mr. McCahill’s first foray into international law having litigated an international child abduction while still in law school at Nova Southeastern University’s Family Law Clinic.  During that time, Mr. McCahill was fortunate enough to also meet with a delegation from Afghanistan’s constitutional committee for the newly formed government and address concerns with border crossings of minor children in conjunction with the U.S. State Department.

Mr. McCahill now focuses his practice litigating on behalf of Plaintiffs.  He specializes in litigating claims for those who have been wronged by their homeowner’s insurance carrier.  Additionally, Mr. McCahill is a seasoned securities litigation attorney who has recovered millions of dollars for stock broker/financial advisor misconduct.

Prior to law school, Mr. McCahill worked as an accounting liaison for an international logistics company responsible for the transportation for the Olympics.  In 1999 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from John Carroll University.  Prior to that he graduated from Oak Park River Forrest High School in 1995.  Mr. McCahill began working at the age of 13 caddying at Riverside Golf Club.  He was later awarded a Riverside Memorial Scholarship and eventually became Caddy Master.  When not recovering money for his clients, Mr. McCahill enjoys running half marathons with his wife Tiffany, and traveling.
