Mary Clare Kelleher is a personal injury attorney at Kelleher Law, PA. She is admitted to practice in the state of Florida and works predominately in the Naples and Fort Myers area. Ms. Kelleher’s primary focus is on litigation strategy. She has a passion for successfully navigating the complexities of the legal system, aggressively pursuing fair compensation for her clients, and helping ease the financial pain of victims and their families.
Mary Clare was born in Buffalo, NY. She has called many places home including Florida, Georgia, New York, Virginia, Connecticut, and Louisiana. Mary Clare graduated from Blessed Trinity Catholic High School in Atlanta, GA. She went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Georgia State University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude.
Upon graduating, Mary Clare received a full scholarship to Ave Maria Law School and decided to return to Naples, Florida. She entered into her first year of law school alongside her younger brother, Jimmy Kelleher. After her first year, Mary Clare ranked first in her class and was awarded additional scholarships including the Elizabeth Anderson Hishon Memorial Scholarship Award, the Rewarding Excellence Scholarship Award, and the Dean’s Fund Scholarship Award. While in law school, Mary Clare was on the Executive Board of Ave Maria Law Review, a member of the Moot Court Board, a Dean’s Delegate, an elected Senator of the Student Bar Association, and a Peer Mentor to incoming students. Mary Clare was on Dean’s List every semester and graduated Summa Cum Laude. Out of all the accolades Mary Clare received while at Ave Maria, she takes greatest pride in being presented with the most prestigious commencement award—the Mary, Queen of Lawyers Award. Ave Maria presents this award to “the student whose life and learning show that the student, like Mary, is the person we would choose to defend us in the most important judgment of all.”
Before joining Kelleher Law, PA, Mary Clare worked as a judicial intern at the highest state court in New York—the Court of Appeals. She interned under the renowned Judge, Honorable Eugene Fahey. During her clerkship, she was exposed to all the different levels of the legal system and discovered her passion for researching case law to assure the courts reach the correct decisions. As Judge Fahey said in his letter of recommendation, “Mary Clare has ‘heart’’ and “cares about the results and cares about getting the answer to legal questions right.” Mary Clare takes this “heart” and “care” into each of her client’s cases at Kelleher Law.
When not practicing law, you can find Mary Clare at the dog park playing with her “angel puppy, Tucker” or scoping out the best live music venues.
