Although a native and 7th generation North Carolinian, Calvin G. McLean has been proud to call Texas home for the past 30 years. Calvin arrived in Texas because of his service in the United States Army, where he served as a combat medic. He distinguished himself from his peers in his first year of service by earning the Expert Field Medical Badge while serving in South Korea. This badge is one of the most sought-after awards in the U.S. Army.

After his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, Calvin pursued his career in law enforcement. During his first year as a patrol officer, Calvin was chosen as a Field Training Officer. As an FTO, he was trusted to train new patrolmen during their first few months on the streets. After five years, Calvin became a narcotics investigator where he focused on investigating complex criminal matters many of which involved drugs, gambling, and other vices. During this time, Calvin also seized United States Currency, automobiles, and real property.

Following 16 years in law enforcement, Calvin pursued his lifelong desire of being an attorney. Once enrolled at STCL, Calvin soared. He made the Dean's List and was a member of The South Texas Law Review where he served as an Assistant Information Editor. He was also a member of the Garland R. Walker Inns of court.

As a career servant with a passion for helping people, Calvin frequently makes presentations to community groups on how citizens should respond to police encounters. His favorite aspect of practicing law is conducting legal research in order to assist in solving clients' problems. In representing persons accused of committing crimes, Calvin draws upon his nearly 20 years in law enforcement to make certain his clients' rights are protected.

Calvin is happy to have an opportunity to partner with Bill. Together, they have achieved incredible results for their clients.
