      I worked with Ms. McCLure in her capacity as a receptionist, paralegal and lawyer. She always impressed me with her combination of skills which included being detailed and precise, yet also being able to see the big picture and what was important. She is one of the finest attorneys I know, and I regularly refer conflict work to her.I can recommend her for AV rating without reservation.
