Practicing law requires being willing to fight other people's battle just as hard as if they were your own. People call us when they are facing problems without easy answers. Whatever it is that they need solved, theyâre looking for someone who understands what theyâre up against, and can help them through that process, confidently and capably. We begin every day with the mindset that people are depending on us to do our best in their toughest situations. Putting the clientâs needs first, using all our skill and energy and creativity to help solve those problems, is how we measure success.
We ask our lawyers to be down to earth, easy to work with, tough advocates in the courtroom, and to always recommend the best option for the client. If we might be able to solve a problem with a five-minute phone call instead of a five-month court case, weâll let you know about that option. Serving our clients well starts with having attorneys whose heart is in the right place, and weâre proud to work with a team who shares that with one another.
Greg is the founder of McCleery Law Firm, and opened his own practice several months after passing the bar. As the oil and gas industry began to invest in the area, energy law played a significant role in the firm's early growth. Greg assisted both major industry players and local landowners with title research, leasing negotiations, sales of minerals and royalties, and curative title work, and acted as the title supervisor for an oil and gas brokerage firm, overseeing all title operations and leading a team of experienced abstractors.
After several years, Greg expanded into new areas of law, focusing on criminal law and domestic relations, and together with oil and gas, these three areas formed the core of his practice. Since its founding, the firm has opened multiple new branch offices, with plans for future expansion.
During law school, Greg was awarded the Perantinides & Nolan Scholarship for his outstanding commitment to public service. While completing his Juris Doctorate degree at the University of Akron School of Law, he took time away from his studies to volunteer at Housing Advocates, Inc. and was promoted to a position with primary responsibility for overseeing their housing disability program. He also volunteered as a summer intern with Southeast Ohio Legal Services. Greg is active with his local church, became an Eagle Scout, and has served as the Treasurer of the Tuscarawas County Bar Association. He continues to volunteer at the Southeast Ohio Legal Services free legal clinic, and participates in the Ohio Attorney General's Victims of Crime Compensation program, assisting domestic violence victims with obtaining civil protection orders without cost.
