Mr. McGinley's writings have been cited as an authority for deciding cases in opinions from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, the Court of Appeals of Maryland, the Supreme Court of Florida, Florida's First District Court of Appeal, and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. His law firm's primary office is located in the Winter Park suburb of Orlando, Florida.
