Biography Overview

Clancy Boylan is the managing attorney of the Philadelphia Office where he represents individuals and families that have been catastrophically injured or killed in trucking or automobile collisions, construction accidents, premises liability accidents and medical malpractice. In 2021, Mr. Boylan was selected as a Distinguished Leader by The Legal Intelligencer at their annual Professional Excellence Award Ceremony. Only nine attorneys across Pennsylvania were selected for this award. Mr. Boylan was chosen due to his successful representation of clients and his efforts in overseeing the substantial growth of the Philadelphia Office. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia in 2005, his MBA from Wilkes University in 2008 and graduated with his Juris Doctorate from Duquesne University School of Law in 2012.

In just four years at Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Boylan has already obtained a $7,000,000 settlement for a client injured in a motor vehicle collision (non-surgical); $3,200,000 settlement for a client injured in a trucking collision (non-surgical); $3,000,000 settlement for a client injured in a New Jersey motorcycle collision; $1,500,000 settlement for a client injured in a trucking collision; $1,350,000 policy limits settlement on a limited tort case (non-surgical); a $1,100,000 settlement for a client injured in a trucking crash; a $1,008,137 policy limits settlement for a husband and wife injured in a trucking collision and a $1,000,000 policy limits trucking collision settlement. Mr. Boylan has been selected as a Rising Star by Pennsylvania Super lawyers Magazine every year since 2016. Just 2.5% of lawyers under the age of 40 receive this honor. Prior to joining Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Boylan worked for a boutique Personal Injury firm based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania. After just two years, his firm sent him to Philadelphia to open a new office. While at his prior firm, Mr. Boylan was co-counsel on a $1,725,000 and a $1,100,000 trucking collision settlement.

Mr. Boylan has had multiple other six figure settlements and obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for his clients over the course of his career. He also helped hundreds of Pennsylvania families across the state whose use and enjoyment of their property was significantly impacted by the Oil & Gas Industry or had been injured by pipeline explosions.

While in law school, Mr. Boylan was a member of Duquesne’s nationally recognized Trial Advocacy Program. In 2011, he won the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Mock Trial National Championship in Las Vegas and in 2012 he was selected as one of the top 16 trial advocates in the country.

Mr. Boylan prides himself on going the extra mile for his clients. His mantra, which hangs above his desk so all his clients can see, is simple: “Good things come to those who hustle.” Mr. Boylan has spent every day of his legal career fighting and hustling for the people, not the powerful.

Outside of the courtroom, Mr. Boylan is heavily invested in his family and his community. He resides in Center City with his wife Abby and their two children, Bridie and Cillian. Mr. Boylan is an active member of the Make The World Better Foundation; Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Big Climb; The Pete and Jameer Nelson Foundation and The Boylan Foundation. He has also presented on the dangers of drinking and driving to many local city high schools.
