The group uses litigation, legislation and education in support of the cause. He has since been elected a member of the executive committee.

Mr. Clancy joined the firm in 1990, concentrating on worker's compensation law, wrongful termination, social security, and public disability pensions and employee rights.
Mr. Clancy has tried many contested cases to conclusion in the Division of Workers Compensation, The Office of Administrative Law and The Superior Court of New Jersey. His legal efforts have resulted in favorable interpretations of law by the NJ Appellate Division regarding discrimination against injured workers.
Mr. Clancy lives in Marlton, New Jersey with his family. He is a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, served on the Board of Directors of Catholic Charities Dioceses of Trenton and coached youth sports for the Marlton Recreation Council, the South Jersey Lacrosse Club and Cherokee High School Lacrosse.
