Attorney Michael W. Clinton “Mike” was born into a large Irish family in South Philadelphia. His Dad “Hank” was an electrician and his Mom “Peg” was a secretary. Mike’s avid interest in sports comes from his Dad who followed all of the Philadelphia professional sports teams, and who coached basketball (24) and baseball (19) for many years in the CYO program at St. Gabriel’s parish in South Philadelphia. The gym at St. Gabe’s has been rededicated as the Hank Clinton Memorial Gym.
Mike, his siblings, and many of his cousins are longtime season ticket holders of the Philadelphia Eagles. Back in the 1950’s Hank Clinton with some friends and relatives started going to Eagles’ games at Franklin Field. When old enough, Mike and his brothers went to the Eagles’ games and sold Daily News lineups. This has created lifelong Eagles’ fans in the Clinton family.
Mike is a former High School (Bishop Neumann) and College (Muhlenberg) athlete who followed his Dad into coaching. Mike, with his younger brother Bill, coach grade school CYO basketball at St. Denis Parish in Havertown, PA. Mike has been the head coach of the seventh and eighth grade boys A team for over a decade.
In addition to his volunteer coaching, Mike does pro bono legal work for the Oakmont Volunteer Fire Company in Havertown, and was recently awarded a 15 year service plaque. Mike also has been a part of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital’s Cancer Buddy Program since 2008. Mike was recently appointed to the Muhlenberg College Board Of Associates.
While in college, Mike was a varsity athlete at Muhlenberg College, and was the captain, most valuable player, and record holder for both the Cross-Country and Track teams. Mike graduated from Muhlenberg College Magna Cum Laude in 1980 and from Temple Law School in 1983. Mike and his law partner, Bob McKain were classmates at Temple Law. Mike has over 33 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer. In 1998, Mike Clinton and Bob McKain formed Clinton & McKain which was located in the Bourse Building across from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.
