Welcome to Claypool Law Firm

As owner and managing general partner of the firm, Brian E. Claypool realized early on in his career that in order to obtain the most optimal result for a client, a lawyer must step into the shoes of the client to better understand her/his needs, business procedures, general business philosophy, personality and fears. Mr. Claypool and members of his firm are mindful that if a case needs to proceed to a trial, that a true partnership between the lawyer and client must exist to collectively motivate a jury to find in your favor.
