Cary Lawyer McCabe Honored as Attorney of the Month

If you have recently seen a copy of the North Carolina Triangle edition of Attorney at Law magazine, you undoubtedly noticed that the founder and namesake of The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.C., adorned its cover. The publication's Attorney of the Month profile titled "A Lawyer in Full" delves into how McCabe's life and career were shaped by his heroes and mentors.

McCabe is quick to lavish praise on others when asked to recount important moments in his legal career. Even when he's talking about coaching a boys recreational basketball team to an undefeated season and championship, he puts the focus on those who helped mold him. He says that though he appeared outwardly calm and confident to his team even as they trailed late in the come-from-behind win, that ability to keep cool and composed is "a byproduct of the really good coaches I had as a kid."

McCabe says that his heroes in the legal profession - Doug Abrams, Wade Byrd, Liz Kuniholm, John Edwards - helped shape his approach to protecting his clients in courtrooms as well. He concedes, however, that as a young attorney, he tried too hard to emulate those lawyers he admired.

"I tried to impersonate them," he says. "I would take their speech, their mannerisms and their style into the courtroom." But as he gained experience and confidence in his own abilities and style, he let go of the flattering imitations and allowed his own tone to emerge.

"I'm at the point in my practice where I am comfortable with who I am, and that's allowed me to be more human in the courtroom," he says.

That change made it possible for one of North Carolina's fiercest, most effective attorneys to stand beside his heroes as as an advocate for those who have been injured in a motor vehicle crash. McCabe is just as relentless in representing those abused in nursing homes and those who have been injured at work and been denied North Carolina workers' compensation benefits.
