Winnie McGrann | In Memoriam

Winnie was with the firm from the very beginning, when Owen gave his wife, Audra, a heart attack by walking away from a steady job and began practicing law out of a spare bedroom.  Thanks to Winnie’s steadfast support and clockwork reminders that she needs food in her mouth, McGrannLAW grew like Winnie’s appetite after she began taking prednisone every morning.  A most valuable member of the team, Winnie chaired the firm’s greeting committee before passing in January 2023. You can read more about her here.

Clare McGrann | VP of Mess Development

Clare joined McGrannLAW in October of 2021 and quickly made her presence felt.  A true agent of entropy, Clare has cemented McGrannLAW’s dedication to a paperless office and has spurred the firm to new and creative gatekeeping structures.  After a rocky start, Clare and Winnie have developed a strong working relationship.  We’re excited to have Clare on the team.
