Clare Kealey

Biography

A native of Dublin, Ireland, Clare graduated from Trinity College Dublin, School of Law in 2013. She then pursued her Master of Laws (L.L.M.) at the University of Pennsylvania and later her J.D. at Rutgers Law School. After practicing with one of Philadelphia’s largest law firms, she transitioned to a smaller firm where she represented one of the nation’s major retailers.

Tired of the big city life and desiring somewhere that felt more like home, Clare and her husband, Evan, made the cross-country move to Missoula. She joined the firm’s thriving litigation team with a focus on healthcare, commercial litigation and insurance defense.

Her Irish background allows her to connect with clients in a unique way, and her diverse experience ensures the very best representation. An avid public speaker, Clare does not shy away from a challenge both in and outside the courtroom.

In her free time, Clare enjoys cooking, yoga and hiking with her family, friends and two Australian Shepherds.
