Mr. McNeil has more than 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer, with the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice and in private practice.

Over the years he has, in jury trials, prosecuted and defended cases involving civil and criminal fraud, civil and criminal conspiracy, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, RICO, DTPA and state common law claims. In The National Law Journal's "Biggest Defense Verdict of 1999", Mr. McNeil led the successful defense of a national health care provider, winning a "slam-dunk defense verdict" in a fraud and conspiracy case. (NLJ, May 22, 2000.) Other trials involving charges of RICO, conspiracy, commercial bribery and fraud have resulted in take-nothing judgments on claimed losses of millions of dollars.
