Your Case Deserves The Full Attention Of A Personal Injury Attorney
Pete started Clancy & Diaz with his wife, Precilla Diaz, in 2007. Prior to this, Pete worked at Bullivant Houser Bailey in San Francisco and Las Vegas, practicing insurance coverage and commercial litigation. After leaving Bullivant, Pete went to work at Wolfsburg, Reese, Colvig & Firstman in Oakland where he practiced complex commercial litigation.
Pete Clancy is recognized among his peers as an outstanding and hard-working personal injury attorney. It is quite common to find him at the office working after everyone else has gone home, and he is proud to say that he has known the late-night custodians at every building where he has worked as a lawyer. This hard work has been rewarded by membership in very exclusive professional organizations and by public recognition.
Pete's family has been practicing law (without skipping a generation) for more than 100 years in California and Illinois. Family legend is that the first Clancy to become an attorney was a man who had to defend himself against a court-martial charge in the Civil War (for stealing an officer's horse). That ancestor won and he was acquitted, starting a family tradition.
Outside of the office, Pete is a father, husband, a voracious reader, an avid ultramarathon runner and a Cub Scout den leader.
