Owen McGrann | Founding Member

Owen spent nearly a decade working for big firms and became frustrated with their way of doing business that leaves clients frustrated, confused, and anxious. Enough. You don’t have to live like that.
Owen founded McGrannLAW with a singular mission: build a forward-thinking law firm that blows up all of your preconceptions of what it’s like to work with a lawyer. At the core of Owen’s vision are a simple set of principles:

  • Make every step of the journey as stress-free and pleasant for our clients as possible.
  • Provide white-glove customer service unlike anything our clients have experienced with a law firm.
  • Provide predictable and transparent billing models that reduce cost through utilizing cutting-edge technology.
  • Minimize surprises.

McGrannLAW is laser focused on Owen’s two areas of expertise: estate planning and business law. Owen’s expertise lies in partnering with start-up and mid-sized businesses, serving as a fractional general counsel and, if necessary, litigating any disputes that might arise. Further, Owen uses his deep experience working with families with few assets all the way through families with tens of millions in assets to sculpt estate plans as unique as his clients are.

Recognizing this expertise, Owen’s peers have recognized him as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer® Rising star – an honor awarded to only the top 2.5% of attorneys in Pennsylvania – in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2021.
Please reach out and get in touch: Owen can’t wait to meet you and see your name up on the main page with the other client testimonials!

Winnie McGrann | Chief Morale Officer

Winnie has been 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 has grown like Winnie’s appetite after she began taking prednisone every morning.  A most valuable member of the team, Winnie chairs the firm’s greeting committee (and appreciates her new corner office at McGrannLAW HQ).

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.
