About Me

Collin is a partner at the Portland office at McKinley Irvin. Mr. McKean recognizes that your legal issues can feel overwhelming.  Litigants often find themselves in polarizing situations, where common ground seems out of reach.  Beginning with his initial get-acquainted meeting, Collin works with clients to identify their objectives, and regularly seeks creative resolutions to whatever challenge might arise.
