Career Highlights

Mr. McNair focuses his practice on litigation; in fact, he is known around the office as the “Swiss Army Knife” of litigation due to the wide variety of his litigation experience.  He has over 20 years of experience litigating disputes in the areas of contracts, divorce, personal injury, custody, probate, business, and real estate.  His undergraduate business degree and small business legal experience serve as the backbone for his representation in high-asset, multi-faceted marital/business disputes. In addition to the above areas, Mr. McNair represents clients with estate planning matters, all facets of custody and support as well as misdemeanor criminal, traffic matters, and protection order cases.  In 2002, Mr. McNair started as an Associate attorney with a general practice law firm where he handled civil litigation, personal injury, wrongful death, landlord tenant and other general business matters. In 2007, Mr. McNair started a boutique domestic relations firm in downtown Columbus, OH. In early 2013, Mr. McNair and Chris Lardiere founded Lardiere McNair, LLC.  Mr. McNair is also a licensed title agent and founded and operates Capital City Title Agency, LLC.

For my first lawyer that I needed to represent me, I was doing my research. With Sunni I felt a connection. When you feel a connection, that’s when you can trust someone. Sunni and the firm are really mindful of the clients’ needs and their time. I feel like they did an exceptional job.
