If you are under investigation or charged with criminal offenses in Central Pennsylvania, you can expect attorney McClenahen to promptly reply to your call or email, even outside of normal business hours.

McClenahen Law Firm P.C. is a short walk from the Penn State campus, so a lot of our clients are students.

We have extensive experience dealing with the Penn State Office of Student Conduct and the Title IX office. Our firm represents not only Penn State students, but also students from other schools who were visiting State College to see their Penn State friends or to attend a game as an away fan. We also represent students at other Central Pennsylvania schools, such as Lock Haven, Juniata, Bucknell and Susquehanna.
