On Tuesday evening, December 1st, the Montgomery Bar Association paid homage to member C. Dale McClain, Esq., immediate past president of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, by unveiling his portrait, which will hang prominently and indefinitely in the Bar Building in Norristown. McClain is an active chair of the Financial Planning and PBA Liaison committees, a former president of the Montgomery Bar Association (1990), and the first Montgomery County lawyer to serve as PBA president since Desmond J. McTighe held the office in 1963. A solo practitioner with offices in Haverford and Worcester, PA, he is also the first solo practitioner to serve as president of the State Bar. McClain is a graduate of Villanova University and Villanova Law School and earned his Master of Law in Taxation from Temple Law School.
