Spinning circle Big letter B

As an eighth-grader, Mike McClory told his slightly skeptical teacher that he planned to attend the University of Notre Dame and that he would eventually be a lawyer. Mike did both. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1986 (B.A. in English) and from Notre Dame Law School in 1989.

Mike began his legal career in California. Working with several national firms, he gained valuable experience in the areas of employment litigation, employer counseling, and affirmative action/OFCCP compliance for government contractors. At the beginning of 1997, Mike moved to Oregon. He and his family have loved the move to Oregon.

Mike values collaboration with his clients. Through active and ongoing conversations, Mike’s goal is to help his clients find the right compliance strategies, to work through personal issues, and to minimize their involvement in unnecessary adversarial matters. His employment practice includes disability and reasonable accommodation counseling, termination/employee performance counseling, discrimination and harassment law litigation, employee/employer contracts, and affirmative action/OFCCP compliance.
