Clancy was adopted days after he was born in August of 1965. This fact has been a significant reason for Clancy’s profound sense of gratitude for all of the personal and professional success he has enjoyed.Clancy says being “chosen” by his wonderful parents was the best gift he could have been given. Prior to law school: Clancy obtained his bachelor’s degree in Business/Political Science; taught English in China;and served as an Event Coordinator for a 10,000 seat arena. (He even had dinner with Reba McEntire!) After graduating from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1993, Clancy moved his family back to Missouri and began the law firm. Clancy is very proud of his two children, Andrew and Graceanne.
