Brett Anthony Clancy works at The Law Office of Brett A. Clancy. There is one particular reason that I believe sets me apart from other attorneys. I believe everyone is great at something. Since as far back as I can remember I have been great at connecting with or relating to people in all settings.
Maybe it’s because I understand hardship and struggle. Maybe it’s because I have overcome hardship and struggle and enjoyed success. Whatever it is, this ability to connect has led me to being passionate in wanting to help people from all walks of life.
From general counsel or claims adjusters for some of the biggest companies to people who maybe can’t afford but need legal counsel, I have always wanted to help my clients get the best or desired result.
This passion has allowed me to create relationships with clients who both like AND trust me (not exactly common feelings toward attorneys (insert lawyer joke here). What motivates this passion in me? My family plays the most important role in driving me to be a successful attorney. I want to be the best man I can be for my wife and I want to be a good example for my two boys as they grow up to become men.
Now for the boring part, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Evansville where I played Division I baseball. I attended and received my J.D. from Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale, Illinois.
During law school, I interned with the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s office in Evansville, Indiana. I was admitted to the Indiana Bar in 2001 and began practicing law in Evansville, Indiana focusing primarily on labor and employment law while dabbling in other areas such as collections and family law.
I somewhat insanely took another bar exam in 2002 being admitted to the Illinois Bar in the same year (also the same year I met my wife). In 2003, I moved to the Chicago area to expand my horizons.
My practice pretty much concentrated on the defense of all things for some pretty big clients including product liability (elevators, escalators, HVAC), premises liability, and transportation related claims including those arising out of auto and tractor-trailer accidents. I also gained valuable experience in commercial and appellate litigation.
I am technically a general practice attorney. I am a good litigator and that is where the greater part of my experience lies. I am passionate about the law and in particular estate planning but, as you can see from my website, I don’t limit myself to the areas of litigation or estate planning.
