McClellan Law Office, LLC

Firm Overview

I established McClellan Law Office, LLC in 2010. I have been in practice since 1991 and have worked in the same mid-town office since 1998.

McClellan Law Office, LLC represents a wide variety of clients with a focus on worker's compensation and personal injury cases. We also handle disability cases and related areas of the law.

Example cases

• Recent case involved in Nebraska, a client with cervical disc injuries arising out of a fairly low impact auto collision. Required working closely with medical professionals to prove that the collision caused the spine injuries. After the lawsuit was filed, the case ended in a favorable cash settlement for the client.

• In a number of recent cases, obtained workers compensation benefits for injured workers after initial denial of benefits. Often workers are denied for the alleged reason that injuries are not work related and working with clients we are able to prove that injuries arose out of work of the injured employee.

• I handled a medical malpractice case against a local hospital for negligent administration of the wrong drug. After a lawsuit was filed, the case ended in a favorable cash settlement for the client.

Services Offered For Fixed Fees?
I offer contingency fees on many matters which means the client does not pay a fee unless a recovery is made. These cases include personal injury and workers compensation cases. I do flat fees on many estate planning matters. I will offer a discount if a new client mentions Nolo.

We also offer discounts for AARP members.
Hourly Rates
On non-contingency fee matters, $160 an hour is the normal rate.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Allows me to work for others who need help and to help others endure difficult situations by getting the help they need.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I think it is necessary for people to educate themselves on legal issues. People need to know their rights and understand the mechanisms of the legal system.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am more than happy to do this under a limited scope agreement. It provides the start of a relationship and is a necessary part of helping people deal with legal issues.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I have found coaching ineffective. In some cases, a client can represent themselves on matters but "coaching" is not the right terminology to describe the relationship of lawyer and client.
