True Professional
I was very pleased with the way Mr. McClellan understood and explained the matter and attended to my case. I found him well versed in dealing with my matter and able to handle multiple issues, offices, and people at the same time while allowing me to return and attend to my business—with results that exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend him based upon my own personal experience.

Great advisor
I had to have my brother speak to an attorney about his potential divorce. Although I am an attorney, I do not handle Family Law cases and I would not represent a relative in such a matter anyway. I am very critical of other attorneys. And, I have nothing but the highest regard for Brock's handling of my brother's situation. Brock was able to speak to my brother in a very clear and concise way to advise him of his rights and the potential pitfalls of a divorce proceeding. I now refer all of the Family Law calls that I get in my office to Brock, as well as the business law calls that I receive. I am confident in my referral of others to Brock, as I would not hesitate to let him represent me in the appropriate case, if needed!

Great Lawyer
He handled my traffic issue perfectly. He always explained everything and kept me updated regularly. The outcome of my case was better than expected. He is courteous, responsive and a great attorney overall. I highly recommend Mr. McClellan.

Loves to brag, can't perform
Had two meetings with Brock, both of which lasted over an hour, not because there was a lot of information, but because he loves to hear himself talk. He talks about what a great lawyer he is, how complete his research is, about his experience. At the second meeting I had to listen to him go on about what a wonderful complaint he had written, air tight, totally inescapable, no way out. Weeks later he was totally blindsided when the defendant filed BK in Arizona and his only suggestion was to hire a lawyer licensed in AZ and start from square one. Lost time and money when papers were served incorrectly and had to be redone. Was unable to locate an LLC filing because it was in Montana and he only looked in CA. The next time i feel the need to pay thousands of dollars to listen to an egotistical stuffed shirt brag about what a wonderful job he is doing, I'll go to a Donald Trump rally.
