About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

Greg graduated from Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio with a B.A. in English and a Minor in Legal Studies, Cum Laude. He then attended the School of Law at the University of Akron, Ohio, where he received his Juris Doctorate degree. During law school, in addition to his studies, Greg volunteered with legal services to assist low-income clients with a variety of legal issues, and worked at Housing Advocates, Inc. as the Real Access Now program coordinator. He was subsequently awarded the Perantinides & Nolan Scholarship for outstanding pro bono service. Following law school, he opened his own solo practice based in his hometown of New Philadelphia, Ohio.  As the oil and gas industry began to invest in the area, his practice became increasingly involved in oil and gas title research and curative issues, and he made connections both within the industry and with local landowners. In addition to his legal practice, he also served as the title supervisor for an oil and gas brokerage firm, overseeing all title operations. Greg is active with his local church, volunteers 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.

Best custody attorney
I cannot say enough about Mr.Mccleery. He’s representing my son in a custody battle which is the biggest circus I have seen. If you want someone that knows the law and is willing to fight please hire this firm.

Juvenile court
Mr. McCleery represented me in a hearing involving my great grandchildren that I have custody of. The prior Foster Parent was wanting to intervene. Mr McCleery investigated several things that were brought up. Listened to what I had to say and was there for me. His staff was very helpful as well Elizabeth and Corrie were there when I needed to ask questions. This is an awesome team of professionals I would definitely go back to them if I needed to. They keep you updated on your financial part of it as well so you know where you are at and not a huge bill at the end. They were a Blessing to me!

Stellar attorney
From the moment I walked into McCleery Law Firm to discuss my divorce, Ashley has made me feel like family and is very kind at my weakest moments. Her and Attorney Greg McCleery whom represents me listened to hear and not just to respond. Attorney, Kevin had excellent analytical skills and was able to readily make sense of a large volume of information. WESLEY  and the support staff are very creative and able to think of reasonable solutions when problems and unique situations arise. The entire TEAM at McCleery Law Firm show a stellar emotional response whereby they perceived my dilemmas and authentically, genuinely want to support me in resolving my divorce issues. Attorney, MONICA , is a strong, leader that shows perseverance and I’m blessed to have her represent me.

Excellent Attorney
First of all, Greg is almost always available to his clients to offer advice or insight. He is confident in the courtroom, professional and sensitive to client needs and situations, and pleasant to work with on tough cases. I have felt blessed to have him represent me and offer advice. I have sought his counsel on three cases and he has always been honest and realistic along with ready to research. Worth the time and money without a single doubt.

Really understanding and excellent at what he does
He's very understanding, friendly, and he's really good at making time when you need it. I needed him for a protection order against my children's very abusive father and he made sure that happened and I will recommend him to anybody and everybody that ever needs an attorney .

Mr. McCleery was very down to earth and professional as our attorney. He was more than happy to go into depth to help us understand what was need to be done and other possible alternatives to make our process go as smooth as possible. Definitely would go to him for any future legal issues. - Ian and Alizabeth.
